Aurigny are already at LGW with up to 6 daily flights to GCI.
Aurigny & Blue Islands are separate entities & currently code share on the GCI-SOU route, your 'Blue Islands/Aurigny' intimates otherwise.

We have been through this so so many times itís like a broken record

Bournemouth wonít see KLM , Blue Islands or Loganair thatís what Southampton does and it
does it well

Bournemouth will continue to see expansion from Ryanair and TUI and possibly EasyJet with the odd new destination
Jet 2 as much as everyone wants them wonít happen now , the other 2 airlines have captured the market and clearly are now committed to expanding slowly and are doing so with new based aircraft and increased destinations and frequency
Summer is brilliant at BOH , winter not so but definitely a demand for more frequent flights to the usual destinations

Wizz air would be as welcome as a chocolate teapot

Ryanair are to continue the Edinburgh route this winter with 4 flights a week , same as the summer
using an EDI based aircraft

Budapest looks to be a summer only route now and Dublin still to be loaded into the system

No chance of EZY with RYR/TUI already in situ. EZY seem to be intent on expanding up the road with more routes set to be announced!

Posted on TUI thread in error.

My pal has a flight booked with TUI from BOH to HER on 11th June. But that date isn't bookable online or is it listed on their Timetable page (first flight showing as 18th June) Any ideas why? If the flight is full the date should still be an option to choose (with a no availability message returned). The timetable listing is worrying!

I believe if the flight is full it just disappears from the timetable, I know that is not really the purpose of a timetable but I am fairly sure this has been the case with TUI for ages.

Not much comfort I know but it is listed for next week on FR24 BY6786 departing 14:40

How weird, after all, SATS is historically the ''SKI Flight'' day....

I wonder if their SOU-GVA timetable will also see changes..

I think itís work in progress on the timetable at the moment

Saturday is indeed the busiest and most popular day at Geneva and loads on those days have always been a premium

I went past BOH today for first day in what seems like months and on the south side along side the road there appears to be a new radar tower but the array’s weren’t turning. Anyone know what is going on?

New radar I guess. The tower went up about two weeks ago. Don't know why it needs to be so near the road though.

They've relocated it as they will eventually realign a taxiway on the northern side of the airfield and there is not enough space to do this with the existing radar location.

the airport reported to the consultation committee in March that the airport radar and ILS on 08 will be replaced this year.

The last primary radar I remember seeing at Bournemouth was a Plessey AR15. I guess it's the successor to this one that's being removed/replaced.

Yes it was, when purchased, if my memory is correct late 1980s, it was not new. It was the demonstration/ development radar at Plesseyís when they had a factory at Cowes, IOW.

Considering that during its life SOU purchased the son of AR15, the Watchman, which was replaced a few years back, BOH certainly have had their moneyís worth from it.

Plessey radars seem to go on forever. The Watchman at Leeds Bradford was commissioned 33 years ago and is still doing the business. The 430 before it had the best part of 25 years service, some of it concurrent with the Watchman.
