I think they will find another route to put there, shuffle the timetable around a bit, I mean, if it was me I would have made it go to Shannon as its the same flight times roughly and then the Shannon aircraft can be used else where, Also regarding the ORK flights, I actually think that Aer Lingus will be considering it... A320, similar size to a B738, could work very well if you ask me!

No chance, Aer Lingus already fly from Cork to Birmingham (as do BMI Baby). A lot of passengers who travelled from Cork to East Midlands will simply travel through Birmingham so there'd be no point. As for new routes from Shannon, thats unlikely. The Shannon base is heavily loss making and Ryanair are unlikely to want to launch any new routes during the winter. Also Shannon-East Midlands has far lower passenger numbers than Cork-East Midlands (Cork-East Mids carried 73% more passengers in July than Shannon-East Mids despite identical frequency). If Cork-East Mids is only marginally profitable (according to MOL), then Shannon-East Mids must be lossmaking considering the lower passenger numbers.

It looks like Ryanair are replacing Cork with Beauvais.

Balair 3rd Sep 2008 09:53


Yes its a straight replacement, daily 09.30-12.40 FR1688/9, commences 28th October.

UPS@EMA 3rd Sep 2008 12:31

Madrid has been removed from the route map and stops for good at the end of the summer season. Anyone know the reason???? the flight times to be fair wernt the best.

Also Derry has also been dropped from the end of the summer season



cuthere 3rd Sep 2008 14:46

The Derry route has been moved to BHX. Hopefully not a sign of things to come for EMA.

Baby PRG Route.
Looks as thou baby have pulled the route from the 24th of October. Not Bookable 25th of Oct threw to March 2009. Thou there Timetable says they are operating 4 Flights a week in the Winter. Anyone at baby Got any more Info on this please.

OliWW 4th Sep 2008 23:09

bmibaby plan to add upto 5 brand new routes from EMA from now till xmas according to someone I know there, probably about 50% reliable. Since FR and EZY now operate Prague routes I can see bmibaby dropping this for a new route soon, though I doubt it now as they will be releasing there summer flights in about 2 weeks, I think one of there new routes will be Bilbao

NJTCF 5th Sep 2008 20:07

Bmi Baby.
Reports on the BHX Page Baby Have Dropped 12 Routes:( From There. Not Good if True. Im Hoping its an Internet Problem.

OltonPete 5th Sep 2008 20:31


Most are only suspended, a bit like some of Ryanairs routes.

However one or two are a bit strange such as Aberdeen
which was only released at double daily a few weeks ago
when fuel was sky high.

Thanks Oltonpete.

Ive quite alot of friends who work for baby at EMA/BHX So Am Thinking Of them.

Thou Some Routes Are Chopped from the 1st of Oct So There is No Flying for Nearly 12 weeks. I Can Understand Baby Cutting Back. They Have been having a Sale Recently and was Quite Suprised at some of the routes theye were Offering So Not Suprised at Whats Happened. At the Mo All I Can See is That EMA Has Lost the PRG This Winter.

Recent trip to Sweden with Sterling

Outbound Monday 62 pax 1 hour late cost 0.00 + tax (Excellent Air)

Inbound Friday approx 100 pax nearly 3 hours late cost 10.00 + tax own equipment 737-700

Pax numbers not totally abysmal but I guess yield was. Sad to see them dropping the route though.

My two internal flights ARL - Vilhelmina and Umea - ARL cost around 30 times the EMA-ARL leg!!

I see the DHL flight from Stockholm and back via Gothenburg has been upgraded to a 734 from 733 - still Bluebird.

All times are GMT. The time now is 21:47.
