The Monday Edinburgh flight was the only one due to be operated by a Bournemouth based aircraft. The other 3 days (Tuesday, Saturday, Sunday) are scheduled to be Ryanair UK Edinburgh base aircraft.
I wonder if they have something else lined up for the BOH aircraft on a Monday evening?

CargoFirst

I notice that Stansted announced the commencement of a five month runway resurfacing programme last week.

The first phase will close the STN runway from midnight to 6am every day until the end of the winter season - March 27TH.

That may impact some of the cargo operations. MAG will obviously try to push overspill to their other airports, MAN/EMA. However rumours suggest that EMA has a cargo stand capacity crunch in busy periods - overnight.

Will be interesting to see whether the new in house CargoFirst operation at BOH can sweep up any of this displaced demand looking for London access.

It’s 5 nights a week not 7. Apart from one off's the airlines already have their alternate programmes in place and are operating them, so if nothing has landed at Bournemouth this week it isn't looking good.

Agree its the ad-hoc, that was my point with ‘some’ traffic. Alternative arrangements certainly already in place for the regulars - UPS/FEDEX etc. yes its 5 not 7 days/week. Lets see what develops in the coming 10 weeks.

November passenger figures show 29 , 313 passed through the terminal
Surprisingly up 9 % on last Nov despite the dropping of Lisbon and Budapest ( returning in April)

Ryanair have added Monday to Edinburgh again taking it back up to 4 x week , interesting that all these flights are now being operated by Air Explore 737 800

TUI are using Alba Star again to operate the Thursday morning Palma service

Aegean confirmed for the extra Rhodes and probably Freebird to operate the whole Turkey operation this summer ( still tba )

Strangely enough Ryanair have removed all mention of Air Explore on the Edinburgh route and replaced it with Ryanair UK from BOH

This is also the same with their Belfast operation on all the services being operated

Murcia appears to be only 3 times a week for this summer by a BOH based aircraft, but in previous years hasn't it been 5-6 times a week?

Murcia International

Thanks Mark. I wonder what’s caused the fall since pre-Covid? Was it always summer only?

Murcia has always been summer only from BOH

I would imagine that because there is no base at Murcia FR have decided to utilise the BOH based aircraft to destinations that have more demand
Look at Gerona this summer getting 6 x week for example

Both the Murcia airports have only ever been summer options from BOH historically.

Have European Cargo gone into hibernation? After the flurry of regular flights to China and JFK nothing seems to have happened for a while. There were plans for more A340s to be introduced. Hope business will pick up again.

Global air freight business is currently depressed. Recessions and over capacity are rife. Amazon are now offering space on their Prime flights in the USA and looking to offload capacity/airframes. Belly holds on long haul schedules are back.

Flights to Fuzhou five days this week, and New York at least twice. Just take a look at Flightradar24

These are old scheduled flights from pandemic times. I believe the last departure was Nov/Dec 22 and that was to neither of those places.

Looking at various trackers, none seem to have flown recently (this year?)

Fuzhou and NYC flights ceased some time ago. There are currently 7x346 at Hurn and 1x345.

6 of the 346 are being converted to EASA/CAA freighter config. There is some talk of the ex IB 346 and the former EY 345 being used for ACMI pax work this summer due new wide body delivery delays (787, 777x, A350).

China traffic levels/supply chain glitches still hurting freight markets, expected to recover mid 23.

That's particularly helpful. Thanks.
