Bournemouth handled 60 , 772 passengers in April

Starting to see good loads on all routeís although Easter played a part in the figures

Ryanair saw on the new routes to Budapest about 77% load factors and 80 % on Wraclaw and Dublin

Zadar and Bergerac start next month

TUI also had high loads on all there Spanish routes and Pafos

The main summer services started this May though, fingers crossed they seem unaffected with minor delays and full catering out of BOH

Not sure whatís happening with the cargo operation though , itís been incredibly quiet this May with only training flights taking place , any reason ?

I think the business getting 48,000 people paying hundreds of pounds a ticket are doing better than the business getting 60,000 paying a few pounds a ticket. BOH of course isnít just about commercial flights though so letís not start a debate on which is better as they both have a place.

don't panic RW20, we know you cannot stomach anything SOU but things will change for the better over the next 12 months at the airport!

At least here in the English Midlands we don't suffer too much from the sort of petty "football fan" type sniping between EMA and BHX that appears to exist not only between BOH and SOU, but between MAN and LPL, and GLA and LPL judging by threads on AA&R.

Airports play to their commercial and geographical strengths, and pre Covid and before the demise of Flybe the two principal South Coast airports did exactly that, with SOU serving primarily the business market, and BOH the leisure markets. Airports are business, not football teams!!

But airports don't operate flights, so how relevant is the fare paid? It's a mote point as to whether the business traveller getting dropped off by his wife and grabbing a paper and a coffee is a better costumer than the family parking the car for the week and eating, drinking and shopping in the terminal...

As long as AGS continue to run Southampton it'll lag. Look at the three airports they run. All stagnating, struggling to maintain routes.

The worst airport operator in Britain. BOH will be delighted by the mismanagement.

As I see it, Bournemouth is going to attract airlines such as Ryanair due to its runway length and unconstrained availability to suit its type of operation, whereas Southampton is restrained by issues such as runway length and probably, stand issues. A place exists for the co-existance of both airports.

Thatís good news with Ryanair but prehaps they should start Fuerteventura again , was always a popular route ( guess they have the figures though)

Malta is continuing this winter as well , itís just been added on a Sunday using Malta Air 737 max

Las Palmas looks as if itís been swapped with Lanzarote as not bookable past Oct

First of the re-launched 3-weekly China cargo flights departed today. Consignment is commercial and not PPE related which is good news for the longer-term.

Not seen or heard anything on the conversion progress of the A340's.

Slots at Lisbon again, RYR did not get the allocations they sought. A good many planned routes from LIS impacted

No, its a VCE based aircraft, the dropped Lisbon routes did not include Venice, so LIS slots not relevant beyond releasing aircraft capacity.

Bournemouth handled 87 , 349 passengers in June
quite an impressive figure

Ryanairís new routes to Bergerac and Zadar started mid June and saw roughly 70% loads

All the Spanish routes were averaging about 90% with Ryanair and TUI about 97 %

TUI flights to 5 Greek islands also performed extremely well all averaging around 97%
Hopefully next summer will see some new destinations around Greece and some more 2x week flights there

The new route to Budapest and Wrocław was about 88 % whilst Krakow was near 98%

Article in the local rag today saying that Ryanair were very happy with the BOH operation this summer with forward bookings very good

Decent numbers, sure they are making hay whilst the sun shines!
