Bonkers comment more like 😂.

Only a tiny fraction of those usually heading from the North-East to the Mediterranean choosing Bournemouth beaches / The New Forest / The Jurassic Coast instead will quickly fill the available seats. It’s a service to suit the current circumstances - no more than that I suspect. Well done EJ.

I will concede that it provides much-needed work for EZY staff and others at a difficult time, but their record with routes from LPL is not a good one,hence my lack of optimism.

The problem with EasyJet at Liverpool, is their nearby Manchester operation. Having said that its still a base and I don't see that changing, indeed pre covid capacity and routes had been added. This route may well dissappear once we can fly to favourite Mediterranean destinations more freely but in the meantime well done EJ for having some initiative.

Partly a "political" move by Mr L to cause max embarrassment to Government green credentials by introducing & flying very short polluting bucket/spade domestic hops of course.

EZY operate from both Liverpool & Manchester to Jersey (for the past 3 years), & the routes continue despite the proximity of the two. As a "staycation service", there may well be demand for Liverpool to Bournemouth. At least EZY are trying to do something positive !

It's probably way too late to add any further routes like this but does anyone else think the following might also work on a staycation basis twice weekly from BOH?:

Manchester
LeedsBradford
Newcastle
Glasgow
Doncaster Sheffield (?)

Possible airlines/routes:

easyJet - GLA, MAN do they have the aircraft to do more of this?
Jet2 - LBA, NCL, do they have the appetite for something like this?
Ryanair? Ryanair UK? GLA, MAN, LBA, NCL - they don't currently do any UK domestics as far as I can tell
Wizz UK - recently just added CWL/DSA to JER, perhaps they could offer something from BOH like DSA-BOH-GLA-BOH-DSA

Ryanair are re introducing Las Palmas this winter using the BOH based aircraft on a Sunday rotation

Ryanair have cancelled the Bergerac route this summer, it never started and guessing France is still not popular as to have to isolate on return
They have filled the Sunday gap with an extra flight to Murcia instead

BOH-LIS is a new route from this winter season with Ryanair. Flights operate Tue's and Sat's from 2nd Nov. It appears to be using a LIS based aircraft.

Always good to see new routes coming to BOH my concern is how the heck do they choose some of these places
Lisbon is a great new destination but probably more suited to start in the summer
Its a shame they dont concentrate on Prague again or the Italian region
Both Pisa and Prague had good load factors and the yield was pretty good judging by the fares ( perhaps not high enough for FR though )

Good to see Easy jet starting a week earlier now for the GVA route
EDI and BFS have also performed well with good load factors and some pretty high fares

Steve Gill, Managing Director of Bournemouth Airport, said: We are delighted to be adding another flight to the hugely popular destination of Gran Canaria and two flights a week to the historic and charismatic city of Lisbon, adding to the choices available for holidaymakers looking for some much-needed winter sun and wanting the ease and convenience of flying from their local airport.

We look forward to being able to announce more routes returning over the coming weeks and months as operators confirm their schedules and we are continuing to work with our airline partners and in line with latest government guidelines to ensure safe travel through the airport.

Taken from the BOH website, hopefully a few more routes to come this winter

What routes would these be? Could just be related to TUIs originally planned summer programme and two aircraft base?

These are both Ryanair routes, second TUI was canned at the beginning of the pandemic, I can't see that happening untill maybe S23 now.

Another new route: Bournemouth to Wroclaw with Ryanair (I think this may be a re-instated route?)
