Itís not, the announcement that the appeals processes were exhausted was made on the SOU website 1 August 2022, that makes it just over 5 months.

FYI
Palma is already well served from SOU with BACF (3 a week) and TUI twice a week (using their own chartered flights from BACF)
Malaga is 1 a week with BACF.
All the SOU flights mentioned are seasonal summer only.

Incidentally, BOH has no TUI Holiday flights to Malaga anymore.
(BOH-AGP is only served by Ryanair)
TUI nor Ryanair do not operate BOH to Palma in the winter months.

If you want to go to Majorca in the winter from our local area you will have to go from LCY LGW or BRS (On BACF, BA, or Easyjet)

TUI do not offer Palma Majorca at all from any airports in the winter.

Any whispers of new airlines/routes on the horizon?

The airport really is doing very well during this winter season when you compare their x25 daily departures versus x4/5 with the likes of EXE/BOH/SEN/NWI/HUM/MME/CWL. Makes you wonder how some of these regionals can survive and SOU will likely get even stronger with an extended runway and maybe more airlines and routes forthcoming!

The others survive by not being reliant on airline services, but have a range of other activities to support them (oil and gas heli operations, MRO, painting etc). So arguably they are in a stronger position than SOU.

Maybe wait and see what the impact is of the yet to be built runway extension?

You say "official", are you indicating that CAA have signed off the CAP 791 Compliance and Control project issues?

comms sent out to local residents and the airport having set up a runway app, all project dates detailed in them so think thatís official enough. Iím sure CAA confirmation will follow shortly!

Somewhat academic unless the CAA have signed off the project.

This is good news,but needs confirmation from CAA , it will be interesting to see that any additional airlines will submit to operating from SOU given the news?
SOU needs additional airlines/routes to survive and progress.

Great news! Credit to the airport for persevering with this. Fingers crossed it will act as a catalyst to more routes and the other development in the master plan.

Just having the information on an app doesn't seem a particularly good way of disseminating the information to all potentially interested parties. Why not use the airport website as the primary source for this information?

Ahead of this should be the Ops Director's report to the 3 February meeting of the Airport Consultative Committee, for which I understand that the Minutes will be on the EBC website by the end of this week. If all is still on schedule for a 31 March kick-off the "official" notification of the construction project should appear with the next batch of AIP Supplements, which should appear on the NATS AIS website around 28Feb/1 Mar.

Agree, have been waiting many decades for this moment. Will be most interested to see what beyond FAO and PMI will end up on the S24 schedules.

So what happens if the runway extension gets built but no new airlines/routes come in?
