The very fact that there are rumours that FR may substantially reduce or even stop operating from EMA after so many years should be ringing alarm bells at BHX. We all know that FR dump planes and capacity into airports they can get the best deal with and will up sticks as quickly if the terms of those deals change.

My personal opinion is that negotiations with MAG over the future of FR at EMA are still very much ongoing and the new routes announced at BHX are just a warning shot to help the EMA negotiations go in FR's favour i.e we're happy to go for growth at BHX if you don't give us what we want. I think they want to expand at EMA but they haven't yet got the deal they want.

The FR-BHX relationship has been testy at best and after much fanfare when the BHX base opened, it quickly stagnated and I've lost count of the number of routes they've dropped over the years.

Having said all this, BHX are gaining from whatever the issues are at EMA and I for one would be more than happy to see a lot more FR destinations and bases units at BHX (Berlin, please,please!!) but we have to have eyes very much open to the fact that FR could scoot growth back up the M42 in no time.

Could it be maybe that Ryanair perhaps need to meet certain volumes to unlock growth incentives at other airports (ie BHX or MAN), and just holding off sales from EMA to force more bookings from elsewhere.

Nobody knows really what the reason is so can speculate all we like. Likewise nothing is on sale from LBA from end of March 22 when comparable routes from other UK airports are. I don't see it as a sign of closing EMA as a base personally.

Nothing from Ryanair now after October. They must be having a computer glitch?

Seems Ryanair are in negotiations with the east midlands, whilst the airport appears confident it will benefit Ryanair’s 2022 schedule

Other airports where they operate, such as Teesside, Exeter, and Newquay Cornwall, also have no flights in 2022.
All have RYR flights bookable beyond the end of the year.

Has there been any indication as to the future use of their vacated facility?

UPS Schedule

Has the EMA schedule been adjusted since the opening of the new facility. Obviously 747s are starting to appear, are the flight timings or routings changed as well?

The flight times should be around the same as before, most days it’ll be a 747-8F operating and day stops Mondays before departing to Cologne at 22:00

TUI vs Ryanair

Interesting video doing the rounds on Youtube from Sunday afternoon. ‘Near miss’ between a Tui and Ryanair.

FedEx

Maybe this proposed development is a result of the consolidation of the FedEx and TNT air networks. Are you aware of the planned routing?
I suppose the restructuring could also lead to FedEx assessing whether loads on the existing MAN/BHX-CDG flights could be consolidated through EMA?

I’m unsure of the exact routing, just know there’s a couple of reasons why it hasn’t began as of yet one being a shortage of aircraft.

Also to note Prime air have added another daily route MAD-EMA-BCN using a 737-800F

Thanks EGNXROB,
I have heard mention of aircraft availability issues also.
One source also suggested MEM-EMA-CDG-EMA-MEM is the planned routing, but how firm this is I don’t know.
At least it indicates that EMA seems to feature in FedEx’s future planning.

That would make a lot of sense and I’d assume they’d move the cargo from the man/bhx - cdg to EMA-CDG I do know a stand was marked out for a MD11 back when the eastern apron was extended which everyone assumed it was for UPS now may seem was ready for the FedEx service.

Easy Jet

East Jet have extended the Belfast International - East Midlands route, now on sale until 12 December 2021.

Still nothing bookable from Ryanair 2022 yet.
