Improving situation likely to in the short and medium term with a busy summer schedule and routes selling well. Potential Baby closure a cloud on the horizon though.

ematom1 2nd May 2012 17:18

will jet2 require another a/c based for the new 3 routes? also will flybe be basing a a/c at ema with what frequencys if known yet? thanks :)

Flybe - Really "great news" for EMA!
I'm afraid another quasi scheduled bucket and spade IT route by Jet2 hardly qualifies as great news, but a "proper" scheduled, based operations by an airline that bridges the gap between lo-co and full service on meaningful business routes most certainly does.

I'm afraid it does tend to sound the death-knell for at least the business routes currently offered by BMI Baby. Hopefully it doesn't sound the death-knell for Baby full stop.

Looks like EMA will see two based aircraft when Flybe open their base. Could they possibly be EMB-175's?

OliWW 2nd May 2012 17:23

It must be presumed that with only 2 based aircraft, they will operate early morning and evening flights to CDG and AMS, and EDI, GLA, BHD will be operated on their own aircraft... i'd imagine the frequencies to be 2 or 3x daily, but I'd have thought they'd be on the Dash 8's to begin with, but who knows...

At the moment, Jet2 look to be maintaining 3 aircraft, but long way to go before S13.

OliWW 3rd May 2012 12:57

scott737 3rd May 2012 16:16

An e-mail to me this morning from Flybe confirms that the 2 based aircraft at EMA will indeed be EMB-175s.

At a quick glance at the schedules, it seems as though the GLA and EDI routes (and presumably BHD) will be operated by aircraft from those bases so, in the light of the news this afternoon with Baby, I would imagine that a number of new routes will be announced to fill the gaps in the schedules of the 2 based.

Monarch will start flights to Palma, Malaga, Alicante, Barcelona, and Faro from 'Mid Summer' it has been announced this evening.

LBIA 3rd May 2012 16:49

Monarch have just announced a new base at East Midlands Airport. Looks like they taking up some of the soon to be ex bmi baby routes.

Monarch to launch new regional base

Monarch has announced a further expansion of its operations across the Midlands with the launch of a new base at East Midlands Airport and also additional flights from Birmingham.

The airline will launch new flights to key leisure destinations across the Mediterranean, including to Malaga, Alicante, Palma and Faro in Portugal from the Midlands in late summer.

In addition, it will expand its operations from Birmingham by adding more flights to Malaga, Alicante, Faro Rome and Palma plus a new route to Barcelona.

Monarch managing director Kevin George said: "In light of recent industry changes, opportunities have opened up in the market. It has become clear that the Midlands will be underserved as a region in the future, and that there is a lack of quality carriers to serve customers travelling from the area.

"As an airline with over 40 years heritage and a stronghold in the Midlands already, the expansion of our existing services from Birmingham and the launch of operations from East Midlands makes perfect sense for Monarch, and accelerates the strategy we announced last year to focus on the development of our scheduled operations into key leisure destinations across the Mediterranean, the Canaries and North Africa."

Baby to close down 9th september 2012 BA/AIG obvs doesnt consider the regional airports/ passengers and staff, only uses the BMI brand for the slots. Too much power for BA to be able to do so. :mad::mad::mad:

ATNotts 3rd May 2012 17:56


Sorry mate, but BA (or London Airways) as they should be called, have had [email protected]@er all interest in airports outside London, unless they run domestic operations to feed the London hubs. The only interest that IAG ever had was in the LHR slots, and Baby's best chance of continuing was to be bought, but losing as much as they do, and not having slots themselves at LHR/LGW made them unattractive even to a daring venture capitalist.

As I suggested a while ago, there were no grounds for optimism for another carrier buying the airline, as there would be extra costs in TUPE-ing staff which, if the potential suitors waited long enough, they would not need to bother with, as they could cherry-pick worthwhile routes. Monarch seem to have done just that, at both EMA and BHX. Monarch's early swoop should stifle any hopes of major expanion by Jet2, and to be honest, I think EMA are better off with a quality carrier such as Monarch.

My best wishes to all those who's jobs are effected by this unfortunate turn of events.

From an EMA and not a Baby point of view all the major routes operated by Baby have already been covered, two airlines with bases have been gained. Hopefully some opportunities will arise for flight and ground crews.

Perhaps other operators are also looking to expand at EMA.

Jet2 Expansion
Two Years on Eight New Routes - Success at East Midlands Encourages Jet2.com Flight Expansion | Jet2.com

04th May 2012

- The North’s favourite leisure airline launches eight new city, sun and ski destinations
- Further investment in the region with the creation of 100 new jobs
- Additional aircraft for 2013, increasing capacity to over 500,000
- Full 2013 programme now on sale, giving passengers even greater choice
- 23 destinations from East Midlands from £31.99 including taxes

Jet2.com has today given a boost to East Midlands passengers affected by the bmibaby news launching EIGHT new destinations for Winter 2012/13 and Summer 2013 to Dubrovnik, Menorca, Nice, Ibiza, Larnaca and Gran Canaria and ski routes to Chambery and Geneva. This is great news for East Midlands travellers who can be assured of award winning customer service at low fares from their local airport.

East Midlands Airport MD Brad Miller with Jet2.com MD Ian Doubtfire at the announcement of Jet2.com's New York flights.

The addition of these new routes brings the airline’s total city, sun and ski destinations to 23 – substantial expansion for Jet2.com at East Midlands Airport which falls in the month of its second anniversary of operations from the airport.

To serve these exciting 23 destinations now available, three times the number the airline launched with in 2010, an additional 737 aircraft will arrive at the airport for summer 2013, increasing capacity to more than half a million seats – a 36 per cent increase on this year. This will give a significant boost to the local economy with 100 new jobs being created, bringing the total number of people employed by Jet2.com at the airport to 200.

Ian Doubtfire, Managing Director of Jet2.com, said: “Many local travellers have been affected by the decision to cancel bmibaby operations from East Midlands Airport. This is why we have decided today to launch our great value flights to eight new popular destinations, including the ski gateways of Chambery and Geneva. It is important to us that we give people continuity and ensure they can still enjoy travelling to their favourite destinations from their local airport.”

In addition to launching the new routes, Jet2.com has also put on sale 2013 flights to Mainland Spain, Canaries, Eastern Med destinations and Portugal. This means the full summer 2013 programme is now on sale for eager sunseekers. An increase in weekly flights from 31 to 49 will also give holidaymakers greater flexibility in tailoring their holiday plans to suit their needs.

Ian added: “It is undoubtedly a very exciting time for us at East Midlands Airport as we celebrate our second anniversary. We’ve been thrilled with the success of the past year but are very much looking forward to the next year, which will bring to the region more fantastic destinations, a new aircraft, even more capacity plus a further jobs boost. We are committed to East Midlands Airport and to giving our local passengers an unrivalled choice of city, sun and ski destinations.”

The EIGHT new destinations now available from East Midlands Airport are: Dubrovnik, Gran Canaria, Ibiza, Larnaca, Menorca, Nice plus the ski routes of Chambery and Geneva. Flights from East Midlands start from £31.99, including taxes.

East Midlands customers can also enjoy great value city and sun package holidays with Jet2holidays – which offers flexible durations for stays in accommodation from 2-5 star hotels and apartments from self-catering to all inclusive.
