French ATC perhaps!?

almost professional 27th Jan 2016 03:12

May well have been avoiding French airspace as they are playing up, but the routing itself is not that unusual, TCX quite often depart/arrive the canaries via the Irish Sea - I believe that there is a cost/ benefit equation based on fuel vs route charges.

Yes happens a lot, infact the Air Portugal A330 from LIS to MAN came
over DUB the other day

Another excellent year for freight at EMA, 2015 saw it rise by 4.5 per cent to 322,918 tonnes, the highest in its 50-year history.

Surprised no advertising on the site about the Eurowings flights! Bookable on the airlines website though!

valefan16,

You shouldn't be surprised, the content of EMA's website is an absolute joke, just take a look at the "New routes" section as an example, or the "arrivals/departures" boards which show some, but not all of the code share flights. The whole thing appears very amateurish and none of the management team seems to be bothered as to how poorly this reflects on them and EMA.

The problem is it seems all PR, including the website, is handled by MAG from Manchester, which wouldn't be a problem if they are made fully aware of what is happening at EMA - obviously they are not.

If Andy Cliffe wants this new route to be more than a one season wonder, then he had better get his act together and improve the situation. Perhaps he could take some lessons from the experts over at BHX, they have developed their PR down to a fine art...!

They should really be pushing the DUS flights really, a new operator and one part of a global carrier which currently EMA could really do with working out if it's going to make other routes be considered by Eurowings and to maybe make other airlines (AFR maybe to link up Paris which is underserved or KLM maybe consider giving it a try) the website has changed recently but the content has gone downhill and just seems to suggest a "happy with what we have" attitude from the airport.

Interesting comments re PR!

Being part of the Mancunian Mafia up here I actually thought our MAN PR was handled from Stansted or indeed at EMA. .....

Maybe a testimont to how bad it is that nobody knows what each airport is doing or where to position itself!

TCX usually take this route between EMA and TFS, yet the ACE / FUE go over Spain and France. As said, must be the cost factor...

Junta Leader 28th Jan 2016 09:02

You can't route into ACE/FUE from T16 due airspace restrictions.

T16 from EMA to TFS/LPA is quite possible and depends on what the super computer kicks out based on a whole bunch of factors as described above. Depending on the winds, it doesn't often add that much time if you route that way.

More detail on the Eurowings news.

Lufthansa’s low cost airline Eurowings has announced a route from Dusseldorf to East Midlands airport.

The service, which starts on March 27, will operate six-times weekly with weekday flights leaving Germany at 11:25 and arriving in the UK at 11:50 (local time).

The return journey leaves East Midlands at 12:25 and arrives in Dusseldorf at 14:45. On Sundays the flight will leave at 06:50 and arrive in East Midland at 07:50.

The service will be operated by a Bombadier CRJ-900.

Jet2

FRatSTN 8th Feb 2016 17:02

Great to see FR seemingly adding BCN (4x weekly) and Rome-CIA (3x weekly) for the Winter season. Two routes I've always thought could do well operating year-round.

With this, and especially if the BFS rumors come to fruition, this could be EMA's busiest winter for many years, providing BE don't disappoint and EW continue their new DUS route into winter.

Ed Force One
 
Apologies if this is in the wrong place, but I want to ask about when Ed Force One comes to EMA for the download festival. Where will it park? Who will handle it? Any info at all ? (can't wait!!) xx

Balair 4th Mar 2016 16:55

At a meeting of the three local authorities "Power of 3 (PO3)" held yesterday at the airport, Andy Cliffe is reported to have commented on the new Eurowings service to Dusseldorf but also added "and we are hopeful that over the coming months we will have announcements about new airlines"

This is probably just the usual PR speak that is constantly rattled out for captive audiences at such events, but it is slightly different from the usual "we are in constant discussion with airlines" etc.

If there is some substance behind this comment, apart from the highly unlikely rumoured Shaheen service to Islamabad, has anyone heard rumours of any possible new arrivals at EMA?

ematom1 4th Mar 2016 17:17

I sent Shaheen Air a message about the rumoured new Islamabad route & they replied that it is true & will be announced soon but yet still curious as to if it will ever happen! A day later Manchester was announced on there website!

Vueling? They seem to be expanding all over the UK and are popping up everywhere.

jfy1999 5th Mar 2016 14:43

Anyone on here who follows football will know that Leicester City FC will most probably qualify for next season's Champions League. Not a route rumour, but a chance of seeing some interesting movements.

jfy1999 12th Mar 2016 07:13

Etihad Cargo/Atlas Air 747-8F N855GT just departed to Abu Dhabi from EMA.
