I doubt this market from BOH will ever reach levels of activity seen during the pandemic, commercial airlines now flying lots of cargo once again!

European Cargo

Does anyone have any knowledge on whether European Cargo are likely to recommence operations soon?
Itís becoming increasingly concerning that a large number of their aircraft remain parked for so long. Would love to see them succeed once again!

I have just checked FR24 and ironically there is a departure tomorrow. Looks like itís a brief test flight, possibly in preparation for something long haul.

Test flights are mandated by Airbus unless an airframe goes into long term storage.

CAA figures are finally out for the year 2022

Bournemouth handled 734 , 530 passengers

Top 5 routes were as usual

PMI 111,000
ALC 70,000
AGP. 67,000
TFS. 55,000
FAO 51,000

This year sees a variety of different airlines again
including

Alba Star B738
Aegean A320
Lauda. A320
Freebird. A320
Buzz B738

2 based FR B738 and 1 based TUI 738 seeing a very busy summer season
( Sunday lunchtime should see 3 X FR B738 , 1 x TUI B738 , 1 x LD A320 on the ramp )

Still no news on the cargo operation here , 7 x A340 sitting around must be a cause for concern now ?

It would be good to see 2023 edge back towards the 1m pax mark.

I counted 8 A340s a couple of days ago, none have moved in a while.

There have been a few 'test' flights recently, but an update would be good from anybody that works there.

They have unfortunately not operated for months now but for some reason still show up on the arrivals and departures listing on FLIGHTRADAR

Saw it appear through the low cloud over Broadstone and heard the reverse thrust on landing. Good to see, ish and hear.

Early days yet but itís looking like TUI will base a 2nd aircraft at Bournemouth for summer 24
TUI are replacing there 3rd party carriers like Freebird, Alba star and Aegean and using there own aircraft which means 2 departures each morning according to the schedule so far

There is still gaps for 8 flights but itís looking promising ( letís see how successful summer 23 is first )

According to the March 23 consultive committee published Bournemouth is getting a new radar , a new ILS system for 08 ? and new fire trucks
It was also expected for passenger to reach the 1 million mark again ( pre Covid )


Cargo flights should also re start mid to late April

What happened to the 08 ILS, I've not flown from BOH since 2005 but ISTR there was ILS both ends.
Or do you mean a new one that may be Cat III.

if 08 ILS is to be replaced by a Cat III system then they'd need to upgrade the approach and runway lights to Cat III which is very costly, so the replacement ILS is likely to be Cat I.

Thanks, is this what TUI had hoped to do for Summer 2020 before Covid>?

The plan then was to take (iirc) a LTN based 737-800 and share it over 7 days with both BOH and EXT (4 days on at BOH and 3 days on for EXT) >?

EXT also has Alba Star and Freebird ''fillers''.

I suppose the old 08 ILS is tired or unreliable. You don't really need both ends to be Cat III as there is usually little wind when it is foggy, except in the Channel Islands.

MARKEYD, it's very reassuring to read about the cargo operation restarting later this month. Are the consultative committee minutes available to the public?

I wonder if the rumours of an easyJet base at SOU will provoke BOH owners into putting a revised bid to come to BOH instead.

The major missing link that's needed to lock in a base for someone like easyJet would be an hourly airport shuttle from the train station to the airport from 04:00 to 00:00
