Does anyone have any insight into why the BOH-PFO route was dropped? It always seemed pretty popular when I flew it?

I see RYR has recently introduced LPL-PFO, does anyone know if there is any chance of it returning to Bournemouth? Particularly as EasyJet are never going to be able to operate SOU-LCA.

We have one once-a-week flight to Cyprus (PFO) with TUI for the geographic area that encompasses BOH and SOU. It would be good if someone could make it work.

The current pricing of TUI on BOH-PFO is ridiculously high, so Ryanair no doubt could make a BOH-LCA service work.

LCA would be a more preferable route than PFO and would provide BOH with a much-needed hub airport connection. With Larnaca's climate, it could be year-round. However, RYR only operate Vienna from Larnaca.

Still would love to know the reason the OG route was dropped - sector length?

I'm not sure many people would consider a 4+ hour flight on FR to Larnaca followed by a self-connect as a useful hub connection for Bournemouth. Those who really do need a link to a hub would probably think about flying from Bristol or Southampton

Yes, I appreciate starting the leg on a Ryanair flight wouldn't characterise LCA as a hub in the conventional sense, but I know friends who have done self-connect routings through places like Venice on to Tel Aviv. I don't know many from the Bournemouth/Southampton area that would even consider using BRS for a hub flight, let alone a direct flight when they could head towards the London airports in the same travel time (or less).

As for Southampton do people does anyone ever use it as the start of a hub flight these days?

SOU been a hub connecting airport of sorts for years, CDG, AMS, FRA, DUB and even MAN when BE were around

And to a certain extent you can add BRU, MUC and MXP to your list of hubs previously served from SOU.

Just an example but an ever growing amount of foreign crew members joining their vessels in the Port of Southampton use the KLM service from Amsterdam.

The original question was "As for Southampton do people does anyone ever use it as the start of a hub flight these days?" - so current hub links.

A seperate question, and more suitable for the Southampton thread, is why the previous hub links listed are now no longer served.

Going back to the original point, can't see RYR chosing LCA over PFO becuase of the better onward links...

It was actually "Does anyone have any insight into why the BOH-PFO route was dropped?"

That's the question I'm seeking an answer for... if anyone knows I'd be interested - thanks!

I mean a year round Cyprus route would clearly be in the top 5/6 routes out of Bournemouth - I still can't understand why Ryanair dropped it and would love it if they brought it back...

A third based aircraft at BOH would most likely see a return to Cyprus, which was the plan for 2024 before aircraft delivery delays.

The intent was to add the following from BOH:

Funchal
Bucharest
Warsaw
Belfast International
Porto
Madrid - resumption
Gdansk
Fuerteventura - resumption
Paphos - resumption

Do you know if theres any intent to add anything from Shannon?

Ryanair last added a route in Dec 2022 for 2023 launch but nothing since.
They were meant to have a long term deal with SNN so surprised there has been nothing announced since.

How big a discount will Boeing offer in return for the political backing ?

Ryanair have 3 adverts on their website for Cabin crew at Edinburgh for S24

One of them is possibly a typo meant to be for Glasgow

Can't help thinking this is not a good look for Boeing

LTN only picks up 1 extra route x3 weekly but does appear to be a LTN based aircraft. I don't think they picked up any additional slots for S24 at LTN.
