The BHD-MAN flights appear to drop down to x1/daily soon from the current 11/weekly. With loads picking up nicely - far higher than DUB/MAN flights, I would have thought keeping them at at least 11/weekly would be the better to service the route.

I think the MAN was expected to feed the EIUK TA flights. Possibly why its dropped not to mention the EI flights from DUB picking up so maybe not the crew to taxi up and down for every flight to and from BHD.

Ryanair appear to be ending the BHD routes on the 12th of September instead of the 30th of October. Flights beyond 12/09 are showing as sold out.

Thanks for highlighting this DUB19, I've got some tickets in Oct on some of these routes.
Be interesting to see if they reinstate them in 2021. The pricing has been extraordinary even up to the last minute. Says alot about the yield environment, the suggestion has been in the industry that the summer would be elongated to allow for the missing travel opportunities pre June etc and pent up demand etc.

Hardly a shock with the barely double figure loads on some flights. Probably got the deal they wanted from BFS. Flights I'm sure will shift up the road.

Emerald will also apply for UK licences that would allow it to fly from Belfast, where the airline intends to base five aircraft.

Looks to possibly GLA, EDI, LBA, MAN, BHX, and one flight daily during the day to EXT and EMA?

Today Ryanair sent out cancellation notice on bookings held for travel after Sept 12.

Hardly a shock tbh. Wonder what spin MOL will put on this this time round.

More to the point, what spin will BHD put on it? A massive success I bet!

It's a rough year to evaluate the success of these new services, a lot of what the airlines are doing is reaccomodating 2020 displaced passengers who had vouchers etc. Ryanair ex BHD has none of that.

All that said it's not encouraging that they are axing the routes early, and dates were incredibly cheap, like availability days prior to travel for under 10.
I can't see Ryanair coming back next year.

If this is the case it begs the question how can BHD develop an international flying programme at scale. The main players are unavailable and no low cost carrier will base at BHD due to curfew etc.
​​​​​​They need easyJet and I'd not be surprised if we can a major deal done to capture business from BFS.

IAG obviously are committed given how they stepped into the breach when Stobart closed. I expect the bulk of that business will be replaced by Emerald. The other unknown item is Flybe mark 2.
Option for growth seems very limited.

I doubt growth is on the cards for a long time tbh more replacement of lost business from STK collapse more likely I would suggest. I think the winter will just tick along and maybe an early boost from around Easter next year possibly naturally all covid dependent

How is the easyjet operation performing from BHD? Might they be willing to take on any of the FR routes?
