10% of S24 is still to be confirmed, my guess is by Christmas things will be clearer. Certain bases in the UK didn't get their S23 confirmed until December 2022.

Whilst this sort of logic may appeal to aviation professionals, decisions like that will be made in the City of London, where institutional shareholders call the shots. Moneymen don't tend to like "mergers of equals", and takeover bids usually require a big premium to be paid over current valuations.
EZY have the complication of Stelios's family's influence which will depress valuations, whilst Jet2 has a quite different business model to EZY.

Having worked at both CHANNEX which grew in to JET2 and easyJet since the start l can safely say that most of the so called management & staff and EZY would be in for one hell of a shock and a wake up call if a merger went ahead with Jet2.

A merger between TUI and easyJet is more likely than Jet2.

Seeing as all other U.K. airports have Ryanair DUB on sale already, maybe itís dropped?

EasyJet has removed the Bournemouth to Lyon flight.

They obviously used this as leverage to get what they wanted from AGS up the road

February still available on main website as well, so doesn't seem so. It was only a 7 week programme 1 day a week, January dates are more than likely sold out as look to be part of the EZY package holidays.

MARKEYD Potentially FOUR RYR aircraft at Bournemouth? That would be excellent. I gather there’s a waiting list for crew keen to be based there too, so that should please quite a few.

Could possibly be why a certain Mr Steve Szalay, (ex SOU) has been employed by RCA to improve the infrastructure that's needed to cater for 6x based 737-800's at BOH.

​​​​I believe the thinking is : the best way to counter SOU Runway extension is to expedite Bournemouth expansion and build on the airport rapidly expanding routes.
SOU need to get there act together or there going to be lost in the jetstream!

I think people are dreaming with 4 Ryanair aircraft being based next summer

Just concentrate on 2 Ryanair and 2 TUI aircraft for S24 and a busy summer schedule to look forward to which would be the most Bournemouth has ever seen and something most regional airports of BOH size would envy !!

A concentrated and slow expansion is whatís happening

( would love to be proved wrong though )

Ah, but SOU now have Easyjet Europe Summer 2024 to Faro and now Alicante -
It's picking up at SOU and folk do like Easyjet, plus their busy winter SKI flights to GVA.

Slowly slowly but there will be more....

Southend SEN also gets the ALC too for S24, along with PMI FAO AGP GNB GVA CDG and AMS
(SEN is really picking up, with BH Air doing a high season summer charter to Bourgas too)

Casting my memory back to December 2022, Ryanair announced an expansion at Bournemouth with the release of Edinburgh, Carcassonne & Venice along with an increase in existing routes.
I am hopeful that another positive announcement is looming, however there is one thing that casts doubt. Ryanair has already announced that their S24 schedule has already been released.

As for Cargo, BOH seems to be handling this extremely well. Currently 9x European Cargo flights a week to China & the additional 2x weekly service with Maersk. Most certainly a welcome sight in the quieter winter months.

Rumour has it that the airport will be making some significant changes within the passenger terminals to be able to increase with demand for S24.

If things continue on the current trajectory at BOH, could it be that weíll see some new liveries on the aprons in the coming years? We can only hope.

Additional FR aircraft beyond two

Doubt this is going to happen in summer 24 due to max delays not freeing up -800ís

Agree, not much scope for pax growth beyond that already announced for most UK regional airports IN 24, it will be 4 based 737s at BOH 2 each for RYR & TUI. Cargo doing very well at the moment at BOH.

This was always going to be the growth at BOH for S24 , this year it was Ryanair's expansion next year itís TUI turn

Its a massive increase for BOH to have 4 based aircraft for the summer season , something I would imagine many regional airports of BOH size would envy , controlled growth slowly is whatís happening here

Cargo growth is fantastic news and looks great for the future

Whatís needed now is the terminal to increase its capacity with new infrastructure regarding shops and an executive lounge ( I think BOH is the only airport that does not have one ) and big improvements in the car parking area and transport links now are an absolute necessity

Next step

Fully agree with that.

BOH must now step up its passenger offering if itís going to compete with SOU for low fare traffic which it hasnít had to do up to now. The security area is under too much pressure and would definitely put off a regular flyer. The arrival area is small, and the process slow and manual - where are the automated passport machines? 3 busses a day to the train station - this is not really what a 1m passenger a year airport in its class should be offering.

If they donít put investment into these areas and those mentioned by MARKEYD, passenger growth will surely peak and fall.

BOH has a much longer runway, which is always an advantage
