How when they are in effect tripling the number of contact stands for Terminal 2 by going from 1 to 3 piers by 2024? Less traffic for remote bussing so less congestion in the remote bussing areas.

Baffling

Lufthansa group moving to T2
 
With Brussels Airlines and Eurowings moving to T2 on 30th April, I was wondering if anyone knows if/when the rest of the Lufthansa group plan on following them down to T2. The Lufthansa group are handled by Dnata, while Brussels and Eurowings are done by Swissport, and I don't think Dnata have Ops in T2, so would that mean no Lufthansa in T2 anytime soon until Emirates are ready to move to T2 too?

Brussels and Eurowings won’t be with a Swissport for much longer, believe they’ve lost it. Along with Qatar who I believe may be going to Dnata, which will leave Dnata with Cathay and Qatar over in T2.

Qatar to DNATA !!

Are you sure about that, I thought DNATA is UAE owned ? And as they arent speaking to Qatar is this likely ?

qatar are with dnata at LHR but when they started LGW they didn’t even consider dnata. Doubt very much they’ll go to dnata at man.

tokyostich 31st Mar 2019 10:58

So is there any chance Lufthansa group will be moving to T2?

Manchester Statistics - February 2019

Introduction
Back in September 2015 I decided that I should start to correlate statistics for Manchester and use 2005 as a reference point for historical data. My file now consists of 14 years of monthly figures and 486 destinations that have been served from Manchester over that period.

Destinations that are either new (no passengers since my records started in January 2005), or have not been served for a number of years - if the latter then the month and year of the last service is shown.

No new destinations were served in February 2019.

Million passenger routes (Rolling annual figures)

Amsterdam - 1,043,325 passengers
Dubai - This route has now dropped out of the target figure to be included.

The following domestic statistics are missing from the CAA report for February.

Belfast City shows a false figure of 67, in 2018 the numbers were 20,674.
Inverness has failed to report any passengers, in 2018 they had 3,947 passengers

Moving monthly and annual figures - based on CAA statistics/MAG statistics

Monthly passengers - 1,805,164 +7.05%
Annual Total - 3,591,196
Moving Annual Total - 28,590,075 +2.44%

Monthly Movements - 13,226 +1.69%
Annual Movements - 186,549
Moving Annual Movements - 201,569 -0.70%

The last week has been pretty hectic so I make no apologies for the late posting of Issue #84 of PlaneTalk which is kindly supplied by the MANTP Project Team.

I have noticed that some of the images were included in last week's edition, but we'll put that down to overwork within the team as Pier One went live.

Aircraft don't fit, there was no fuel, airbridges don't fit, and more importantly nowhere to get refreshments!

Scottie Dog 5th Apr 2019 09:03

That sounds pretty dire and, from somebody whose coments I respect, it does leave me concerned.
I'm not worried about the lack of catering, however the stand and airbridge problems you mention are inexcusable.

BA318 5th Apr 2019 10:04

I've heard there were problems with VS 744 and Cathay Pacific planes at the pier yesterday with the jetways not fitting. I've also heard the pier is leaking. Is it a temporary structure? It looks very cheap.

The96er 5th Apr 2019 10:39


I've also heard the pier is leaking. Is it a temporary structure? It looks very cheap.
The whole Airport leaks when it rains, so I at least they're consistent and yes, it is cheap, very very cheap.

And so does where I work and has done ever since it was built and extended , flat roofs always do
Just hope it doesn`t give way like CDG a few years ago and hasn`t taken 10 years plus to finish like Berlin
which even if they finish it still isn`t right

The96er 5th Apr 2019 11:32

[QUOTE][ And so does where I work and has done ever since it was built and extended /QUOTE]

So you're saying we should just except mediocrity then ? . I'm sure in the year 2019 with modern construction techniques, the minor issue of water ingress could be prevented, flat roof or not.

MANFOD 5th Apr 2019 12:48

I thought they had done trials with a VS 744 on the new pier, or was the problem on a different gate and air bridge?

Leaking roof? - oh heavens above. I try and be supportive of Manchester Airport so it was disappointing to read 'spanners' post and that by BA318.

Are the issues quick fixes?
