Won't last long. Fine Gael are going to break up DAA, scrap the travel tax and reduce landing charges. There is even talk of selling off one of the terminals.

I cant seem a 2355 arrival into MAD being a hit!

28 being withdrawn from use for overlay
 
Being reported by news services here.


The main runway requires an overlay, work on which was put back due to severe weather over the winter months. Completion has now been delayed until the end of April.

Jamie2k9 23rd Feb 2011 16:14

Will only be closed between 21:00 - approx 05:30 Monday - Saturdays.

dublindispatch 24th Feb 2011 18:20

I think the M50 upgrades was quicker than this overlay job!!

It rumbles on from last week. Ryanair now want to expand at SNN and they want to be payed for doing so as well as having everything free. Ryanair's proposals to the DAA just keep getting better and better. What next will they want the DAA to pay the crew to fly the aircraft.:ugh:

No no, the crew will pay Ryanair to allow them to fly the aircraft. Clearly.

Latest News > DAA Seeks Clarification From Ryanair
Well said Jamie, i for one hope the DAA (SAA) reject this latest offer from Ryanair - for years the DAA (SAA) staff at Shannon boasted to us staff at Cork (CAA) about the signifcant presence FR had their at one point i think 6 A/C where based and the airport was handling just over 3.5M pax in 2007, 2008 the decline began to 3.1M - while Cork rose to 3.2M in the same year, but it was only in 2009 after significant reductions @ SNN with the loss of LHR (EI - JAN), ATL (DL)*, JFK (DL - OCT), ORD (EI - APR), PHL (US)* - and FR reducing its based fleet from 6 to 4. Then it was October when they annuonced that from April 2010 only 1 FR A/C would be based after already reducing the SNN base to 3 A/C for that winter. But it then came out since 2003 FR had'ent been paying a red cent to the SAA while at Cork although growth was slow & steady from 2003-2008 EI where developing - new LOCO's arriving FR with 1 A/C (to this day**) but all where paying full charges and Cork was making its money unlike SAA this was shown when FR pulled PIK & EMA (2008) after 1yr because charges where on the way after the free first yr - but FR where not hanging round they couldnt believe the CAA's attiude (Comparing SAA). The SAA needs to hold tight they will see expansion not from FR (unless they buck the trend and acctually pay airports money!) but stable carriers such as EI, RE & SAA's transatlantic airlines which all pay top dollar for facilitys there. By the way just to show how horride FR are to their own staff they make them feel its a priveliage to work for them - you pay for your uniform, your meals etc.. and Holidays are at o'd times & you could get banashed like one FR pilot (only to leave later) from STN to Kaunas which is in the back of Siberia, for speaking the thruth after MOL said only one pilot was needed - another one of his schemes. I hope the DAA (SAA) reconginse what FR have done to Shannon Airport, and the local tourism sector and ignore this latest offer.

*Never recommenced as planned for Summer 2009.
**2nd A/C for JUN - AUG since 2010.

Part of this second letter from Ryanair in weeks could relate to the DAA saying that if Ryanair want to grow at Dublin they must restore SNN traffic. Although Cork was also part of the deal I would think that SNN would be more impotent and if this was done then they could add passengers at Dublin. In a way I would like to see Ryanair back at SNN but on a reasonable deal and not the one they propose.

Jack1985 24th Feb 2011 23:50

Yes Jamie i understand where your coming from but look at the recent developments at SNN - first EI service to/from Continental Europe, services to the UK restored and preforming really well. Do the SAA want to throw all that away only for the same thing to happen down the road again? To be honest i hope FR dont grow as much out of Cork anymore i work there and i would be glad to see Baby back (other Loco's too) and EI developing more routes and increasing their base at Cork over FR any day!! - Ryanair are reminding me of a childhood friend i had years back who everyone wanted but left you when they felt like it , if you get me haha :O

Jamie2k9 25th Feb 2011 00:02

There is an opportunity for Aer Lingus to base further aircraft at SNN and grow more. I would like to see them take it but I don't think they will.

MCDU2 25th Feb 2011 10:51

Is there really? Where to. Problem is that there isn't a a large enough population to sustain any significant basing of aircraft.Also the punters will happily hop into their cars and head up to Dublin or across to Cork in search of a cheaper fare. By offering services from SNN to destinations served from ORK and DUB you run the risk of reducing your loads out of these ports. Its the same reason why you don't see a BFS-USA direct route.

Er... BFS has a summer route to Orlando and a direct flight to New York

Long term car park buses can drop off at T2 but are not allowed to pick up at T2. What's the logic?

Jack1985 25th Feb 2011 15:47

There's a 3.5m Long Term bus (Bus Park) facility which is accessible by a Sky-Walk bridge from T2.
