I absolutely did not say that MAG shouldn't waste money on EMA - on the contrary, improving the passenger terminal, and parking facilities to international standards would be money well spent - that check-in extension looks like a discarded B @ Q without the racking - and why are their no ulti-storey car parking facilities?

There are better uses for any money that MAG has to spend on EMA than an extra few metres of runway that will take years to pay for themselves. You only have to look at Cardiff for an example of some extra concrete that really hasn't produced anything in the way of long-haul traffic (Don't mention the BA maintenance facility - empty 777s and & 747s don't need 3000 metres of runway).

EMA needs a serious makeover!
The check in area isn't as good as a B&Q without racks, at least in a B&Q you can get a bargain. How on earth can EMA compete with other regional airports when the check-in/ground-side facilities are so primitive? With regard to multi - storey car parks, EMA should've had them decades ago - but nobody bothered! With the Donington Park fiasco just beginning to unravel, I doubt that any sort of facelift for EMA will find sufficient funding in the near future.

Regarding spending money to do additional work at the Airport you are all forgetting one major factor,North West Leicestershire District Council.Any planning application that goes before them containing EMA is given an automatic NO They are being led by the nose by protestors,who seem to get them to block everything.An application for a Fire Station on Airport land at a peppercorn rent was thrown out,why i can never understand, the fire station was to cover surrounding villages as well as the airport.One of the main protestors is a man with who seems to feature in most of the local planning applications,he loves to be seen on TV,on a recent article on the proposal for an ECO town on the other side of Leicestershire guess who was fronting the mob,yes same person,so with him and a pathetic so called Labour MP,what chance any development.

That's a rather churlish comment....!
I think I've spelt it correctly - you could always check the definition to see...?

Nice one Balair but i think childish is more suitable

Atlas 74F
I noticed an Atlas 74F in this morning as I passed the airport. Does anyone know why it's here and when its expected to depart ?

HeliCraig 28th Apr 2009 09:15

Complete guess, but could it be the F1 teams coming back from Bahrain and getting ready for Spain in a week or so? (See here).

firefox2006 28th Apr 2009 10:38


Ah could well be in that case. Presumably there should another 1 or 2 movements if three flights went out ?

BHX5DME 28th Apr 2009 12:15

Atlas 744F's

Ryanair winter 2009/10
The East Mids flights seem to all be released excluding any new routes.

I am not too familar with their operation last winter but it appears there
are changes/reductions.

Work for four aircraft everyday and five on Wednesdays, Saturdays
and Sundays but with gaps.

Rome - four weekly
Girona - three weekly with a GRO based aircraft
Murcia - three weekly
Alicante - three weekly with an ALC based aircraft
Malaga - Three weekly

Berlin is daily
Bergamo - four weekly with a BGY based aircraft

CCS - two weekly
PRG - four weekly
TFS - three weekly
FAO - two weekly
DNR - three weekly
LIG - three weekly
INV - Three weekly
Knock - four weekly
DUB - double daily
BHD - double daily
BUD - two weekly
RIX - three weekly
WRO - Four weekly
KRK - three weekly

Might be one or two errors in the above and I only checked one
week in November.


I know some of these have long gone or never operated in the winter
but as I say I don't know the East Mids operation that well.

Is this up or down or about the same as last winter? BHX seems less
but again I have not totalled the flights.


OliWW 12th May 2009 20:03

On the 1st half of routes which have been released 4 aircraft are needed, Palma, Reus, Wroclaw, Valencia, Bergerac, Grenoble and Lyon still expected to be release

All times are GMT. The time now is 21:10.
