Hays travel have added another 2 Barbados cruise charters for 2023/24
These are on top of the 6 charters operating with P&O independently

A total of 8 flights so far operated by TUI B787

A good come back for the airport

Thoughts

Pretty sure the airport could sustain a weekly service to Barbados in the winter (not just for cruises) and Orlando in the summer but will probably have to wait till covid is well and truly behind us for that type of commitment from TUI.

With BRS runway limited and SOU (for long-haul) then BOH really does have a unique proposition for the South as long as the airport themselves are focused on this segment of the market. I pray that they are not trying to talk to Flybe 2.0. Not just because I have doubts about Flybe 2.0, but because BOH has proven time and time again that regional op's don't work. Leave that to SOU.

Obviously very much dependent upon which side of Bristol / Southwest England you're starting point is, surely the obvious choice for Barbados and Orlando / Melbourne / Sanford (or wherever else the tour operators decide to fly next in Central Florida) is BHX, it's surely a heck of a trek to Bournemouth from the north and central parts of the region. And anyway, hasn't BRS already had direct flights from TUI to Florida on the 787? Perhaps I'm mistaken on that.

BRS has regular summer flights to Orlando and Cancun.

Did they always make it non stop with a full passenger load? Cancun appear to be a heck of a lot further than Sanford.

I'm not sure re payload restrictions. I assume there must be but not 100% certain. In 2018 a few Cancun flights did have to go via Manchester, depending on the conditions.

BRS-Florida operates non-stop with the TUI Boeing 787-8 series. Occasionally a 9 series has stood in but I don't know how that affects en-route fuel take-up. Weather conditions sometimes see the aircraft on the outbound sector having to take on fuel on BRS-Cancun, usually at MAN as cavokblues has stated. Both routes are shown as 2 x weekly in summer 2022.

I doubt that BOH would pick up many passengers from most of the BRS catchment if there were no TUI summer transatlantic charters from BRS. If there was no BRS service there would probably be one from CWL instead which is closer to most of the BRS catchment than BOH, and BHX is another option particularly for those in the northern part of the BRS catchment. Thomson and others used to operate summer transatlantic charters from CWL which were well supported and many people find it surprising that no-one does currently.

Slightly perverse, at least superficially considering the summer situation, is that both BOH and CWL usually have more winter transatlantic charters than BRS.

The demographic that take Caribbean cruises is generally different to that that visit Disneyland or spend two weeks in Cancun. Cruise flights have always been popular out of airports like Bournemouth, but mass market destinations like Orlando and Cancun will operate from the airports with the largest catchment areas. For Bristol, that includes more or less the entire South West. As for regular long haul flights out of Bournemouth, no chance.

Are the cruise flights from BOH fly out and cruise back or vise-versa?
I thought this might be the case as it's near the Southampton port.

Nope, the flights will be something along the lines of:

Outbound: BOH-BGI-MAN

Inbound: MAN-BGI-BOH (2 weeks later)

Great to see Zadar added to the list of destinations
Croatia is a long over due destination and no doubt should prove really popular

Malta and Paphos still missing from the schedule but itís also missing from many over UK airports served by Ryanair so suspecting they are playing hard ball with MLA & PFO at the moment, would be most surprised to see these not appear later

All in all a really good selection of new destinations beginning to emerge

CAA Stats Oct

Recovery seems to be going well for BOH, October saw 47.5k pax, compared to 38k for August and again in September. Freight also consistently more than 2000 tons/month, putting the airport regularly within the top ten air freight destinations for UK. Good to see.

Good to see that EasyJet have added an extra Sunday service to Geneva in March, flight arrival times are about the same as the SOU service , this makes 6 flights a week

Quite an impressive arrival yesterday of 3 cargo flights in the depths of January , the 747 and one A340 landing within 10 min of each other


Air Atlanta Icelandic 744 from Keflavik and 2 A340 from JFK and Fuzhou

BOH could become similar to PIK for cargo with some scheduled services by Cargolux, FedEx and Amazon in the future - but short-haul links to EMA & the Channel Islands would make it a true 'hub'.

BOH will soon have to make adjustments to it's aircraft parking on the main apron to be able to accommodate widebodies if the cargo services continue. The best location would be directly opposite the current stands 11,10,9,8,7. They could taxi straight on to new stands 12, 13, 14, say, from Taxiway B.

Pax service wise it is very respectable that BOH hasn't lost any services and seems to be at pre-pandemic levels for S22, although I was expecting at least EDI & BFS to come back from the S22 season. Surprising that it hasn't .... yet.

or it could all disappear as the need for PPE declines and more widebodies come back on to Trans-atlantic flights

It will be interesting to see if long haul A321s will allow BRS Transatlantic on any scale . I know the 757 used to get to EWR from there. If they can do transAtlantic they can do Dubai and the gulf too .

BRS has a good catchment area relatively close by and 'is the only major airport in the SW' even if it is barely in the SW itself. Biggest drawback is how hard it is to get to, even from Bristol, because of its odd location no rail and only minor roads even if some are A roads..
