Having had a cursory look over previous years, it seems a significant increase in numbers.

BOH handled 122,707 passengers in July. This is their highest ever monthly figure surpassing the previous best of 121,090 back in August 2007.

Maybe this little teaser announcing new routes might be followed by an announcement of another RYR aircraft being based in BOH?

But these are not new routes? These are just the existing routes being added to the summer program for S24, which are now bookable via there app/website.....happens every Sept/Oct.

To be fair, despite no formal announcement of new routes or additional aircraft, I think itís likely.

Passenger numbers have been impressive and thereís clearly a demand for affordable travel, something Ryanair achieved nicely.

With SOU supposedly serving EasyJet next summer, I would expect Ryanair to increase their presence at BOH.

I would imagine some exciting announcements from Ryanair & BOH (maybe other operators) within the coming weeks/ months.

I'm not doubting anything you have mentioned above, in fact very strong rumors of a 3rd, even a 4th based aircraft are being bounded around, I was merely stating that the echo's article says nothing of any new routes, only existing.

The new radar site enabling a higher radar tower is intended to improve the effective radar range. The radar being replaced is closer to the runway, it has a lower tower to avoid penetration of the runway Obstacle Limitation Surface with negative consequences for Low Visibility Operations among other things. This new radar location is good news for the airport.

In short radar is more effective when mounted on a high tower, and high towers are not safe when located next to runways.

Heard a rumour that the north western taxiway is to be moved closer to the runway to allow for more industrial development and the old radar was in the way.

Plus, if I;m not mistaken, the current radar is a Plessey AR15 which was bought secondhand from the manufacturer in late 1980s and must be long overdue for replacement.

AFAIK, the Northern radar is a Selex-ATCR-33 and is quite "up-to-date" (built this century )

I stand corrected, from what was said in a recent post got the impression that a new radar was in the process of being installed.

The airport did report back in the March 2023 Consultive committee that there would be the following happening

There would be a new radar going in
A new ILS system ( presumably for runway 08 )
New fire engines and other equipment

The last meeting was at the end of July so I guess more information will come to light when itís published anytime soon

Obviously TUI hadnít confirmed about the 2nd based aircraft then so there could be more of a plan coming to fruition regarding the terminal as well

Where can I find the latest Consultative Committee minutes published? The latest minutes that I can see on the BOH website are from 17th February 2022. I cannot find the March 2023 minutes.

Ryanair Summer 2024

Schedules are beginning to be loaded into the system but strangely most donít start till June which is bound to change at some point ( looks to be the same at most other UK airports )

At the moment 2 based aircraft are operating the schedules again with only GRO , DUB & FAO
left to be loaded

Malta goes to 3 x week
Lanzarote continues into the summer x1

Obviously itís early days and would expect to see more routes and an increase in schedules launched later on this year

Hays travel have sold out there Barbados fly cruises for Winter 24 & 25 already and P@O launch the first of their BGI charters this month with 7 TUI charters operating this winter
Hays could sell a lot more fly cruises from BOH but have trouble sourcing TUI aircraft as a shortage of B787 and no other suitable UK carrier anymore
