Thanks MarkeyD. For some reason I had the Bergerac flight down for Saturday afternoon/evening Dep 16:45 Arr 20:10. This wouldn't have fitted in the schedule so I can only think it must have been retimed or I was looking at this year's times!

RYANAIR has announced a big expansion of its operation at Bournemouth Airport, with a second aircraft to be based at the site and new destinations added for summer. The budget airline said it will be flying to Carcassonne in France twice a week next summer, to Edinburgh four times a week and Venice twice a week.

I guess the EnterAir 737 from Pajala (Finland) is a diversion.
Bring 'em in - a bit like the old days, I remember 32 diversions one evening around 1970.

LCY, LCY & STN all saw multiple diversions out. BOH, NWI, CWL, BRS, BHX, EMA, MAN and LBA all took a share, multiple flights also made a 180 and returned to base overseas.

prearranged plans set out how many diversions each airport will routinely accept (for parking, and handling) for all but the largest airports its generally less than half a dozen aircraft these days. I believe the BOH past record is 28 in one day (1972,or so).

Thanks for that. It wasn't showing on the airport's departures page.

Bournemouth handled 76,000 passengers in October
Another good set of figures for the end of the season bringing a total of about 714 , 000 for the rolling year

Unfortunate that passenger figures will take a dip now for the winter as Lisbon , Budapest and one less TFS are not operating this winter with Ryanair for various reasons although Budapest starts up again in the summer and Venice this week is a new destination

Summer 23 is shaping up very well so far

Ryanair have added another flight to Gerona taking it from 4 flights this year to 5 , now up to 6 flights

Thats now 6 services a week to
Malaga, Gerona and Alicante


Believe some more routes or resurrected routes to follow in the new year

easyJet

Very surprised easyJet never tried Palma from BOH which despite being up against Ryanair and TUI, pretty sure there is demand to be had. The route hits almost 20,000 passengers a month in summer. BFS and other UK regional airports manage all 4 big airlines including Jet2, easyJet, Ryanair & TUI on the Palma route for example.

Ryanair

Would not be surprised if Funchal, Belfast, Bucharest and Lisbon get added in for the summer season or indeed winter beyond that.

EZY strategy (see their latest annual report) is to build presence at their big hubs - LGW currently at 70 aircraft and still expanding - and to build their destination hubs, think Spain, Portugal etc.

Lack of peak hour slots in UK will drive EZY into serving additional UK airports from bases overseas. (Not W patterns) BOH, SOU, and EXT all likely on the radar. RYR already doing this which is why a number of their routes operated by aircraft based overseas arrive at BOH very early in the day. No slots at that time avbl at the LON airports.
