Using your logic Ryanair are pulling out of EMA on the same date, its way to early for summer 16 to be out.

j636,

Take a look at the Aer Lingus website, you will see other routes are bookable beyond that date.
It may be that they are still assessing the viability of the route, but I very much doubt it!

Yes they have important routes on sale but not all. Not saying it wont be dropped but way to esrly to say.

Having hunted and found this original East Midlands thread I just thought I'd bring it back into the foreground again.

A propos of nothing I see the DHL extension is coming on in leaps and bounds.

Lots of digging and dirt moving :)

Runway extension
 
In order to comply with the planning permission expiry deadline of February 2016, I understand that work will commence next year on the proposed runway extension, I imagine so this can be carried out together with the scheduled runway resurfacing.
Initially the work planned for the Eastern end of the runway will be completed, which comprises of a small 30m extension and alterations to the taxiway. I assume the more extensive work to the Western end will be done as and when required?

Does anybody know why Monarch's G-OZBT and Easyjet's G-EZFK are at EMA?

munster 12th Nov 2015 14:43

FK is being painted.

Mr @ Spotty M 12th Nov 2015 19:57

G-OZBT was due out today after painting.

Is it a sign of how stagnant things are at EMA that none of us have much to say about the place for a whole month? :uhoh:

Ryanair
 
Some frequency increase from Ryaniar for summer 2016 including 2 x daily DUB. But that's about it....very quiet on the news front at EMA.

I'm surprised there is still no flight to Paris at all. BD flew the route for so long and then BE seemed to fail with it. And yet capacity is going in at Luton in the form of Transavia. Is there really no demand at EMA?

FQTLSteve 15th Dec 2015 20:05

Maybe because 60km down the road there are 6 daily departures on Skyteam with global connections??? Too many airports in the UK?

With business routes, frequency, and hence flexibility is everything, so whilst the must be significant demand for service to Paris, it probably isn't there to the extent that 2 of 3 daily departures could be sustained.

I'm really surprised that Transavia has chosen to serve Luton, as Eurostar is really the only sensible way to access Paris (and for that matter Brussels) from the Southeast.

I think without doubt there are too many airports in UK - the only way they are all going to prosper is to find niches in which they can make money. In the case of EMA that niche is undoubtedly cargo. I wonder how much profit the airport actually makes per passenger out of Ryanair?

Paris can sustain with a twice daily smallish aircraft and global connections - trouble is, just down the road there's multiple daily jet flights. For much of the EMA locality if they are travelling to central Paris, Eurostar with an across-the-platform connection at St Pancras makes far more sense than schlepping out to EMA and CDG.

BHX have realised they can do deals with lo-cos in the shoulders, when they have spare capacity and they won't excessively congest the terminal. Now that BHX have decided to play to such carriers, EMA can't compete as effectively for risk of upsetting their existing lo-co base.

I can't seem to find any evidence that Shaheen Air has gone on sale yet - has the great long haul hope for 2016 fallen by the wayside already?

newscaster 17th Dec 2015 18:24

Any update in Shaheen air EMA plans?

SWBKCB 17th Dec 2015 18:28

Shaheen the great long haul hope? Flipping heck!

Think it will be difficult for EMA to attract scheduled traffic - stick at what they're good at, cargo and LCC/sun flights.
