Thanks for all comments on MAN-IAD. Guess it's even more a non-starter after DT's latest trade war stunt!

Something that got me wondering, why does the Singapore A359 ALWAYS hold near stand 62 upon arrival? Not just for short periods either, for at least 15 minutes usually. Today it must have been well over half an hour

Cymmon 2nd Jun 2018 18:43

Yes, that's correct. On my last flight on Qatar Airways we arrived a little early and had to wait for our stand to become free.
its good to know that Manchester has so many flights, let's hope expansion is good.

After all the multiple carriers on GLA-MAN has it gone down to just 2 flights a day W18?

FFMAN.
Well excuse me for trying to be helpful.
Perhaps if you could put together a coherent paragraph instead of a rambling jumble of words thrown together in the hope someone will read them it would help.

GFY!

Terminal 3 deficiencies again. Just returned. Touchdown 13:15. 40 minute queue for Border Control. Only 4 of 10 desks manned and e gates working intermittently only.
Is it really too complicated to rosta appropriate staffing levels.
This isnít about the terminal being too small itís about inadequate management of the existing facilities.

That is all down to Border Force and not the airport management.

Caravaggio 5th Jun 2018 14:42

I am entirely aware it is Border Force. Do airport management not talk to Border Force management? Or is that In the Ďtoo difficult box?í

The same argument can be applied to all the service providers in the airport who are ALL knowingly under staffing. The reality is that the airport can do very little.

As nobody else has bothered to reply I thought I would have a quick look at both the Flybe and Loganair websites.

At the moment I agree that Flybe only show the two flights - although on some days it is up to three. I suspect that at present the timetable is 'work in progress' and hopefully will show increases in due course. I do feel that it is still rather early for domestic schedules to be finalised.

I did hear a rumour that Loganair might be looking at returning to the route, but nothing definite.

Statement from Manchester Airport media people about the Government's latest attempt at a National Airport Policy. With Grayling "in charge", it will no doubt all turn to dust as everything else has that he has been involved with over the last few years (Criminal Justice system anyone?)

Anyway here's what MAN (as opposed to MAG) have to say about it (my bold)


"Today, alongside confirming support for the development of a third runway at Heathrow, the Government has confirmed, in a statement to Parliament, its support for other UK airports looking to make best use of existing runway capacity. The policy makes clear that Government supports all UK airports making best use of their existing runways. This follows a consultation last year as part of the Government’s development of a new Aviation Strategy.

Andrew Cowan, CEO of Manchester Airport, said: “We welcome today’s statement from Government confirming its support for airports looking to make best use of existing capacity and agree that it is vital for the UK economy that the country has the best possible international connections

“Manchester Airport has demonstrated the role it can play in connecting the North to key overseas markets through the launch of services to the likes of Hong Kong, Beijing, San Francisco and Boston in recent years and the announcement of new routes to Africa and India in the past few weeks. Manchester is also serving as a second global gateway to the UK for investors and visitors.

“Building on these successes, Manchester Airport is investing more than £1bn in transforming its facilities and unlocking the spare capacity on its exiting two full-length runways.

“It is clear, therefore, that is has a vital role to play in meeting the UK’s demand for connections to global markets at a time when other major airports will have run out of capacity.

Government must now match its support for a third runway at Heathrow with specific and practical proposals to maximise the potential of airports like Manchester in the period to 2030 – the earliest the third runway is likely to be delivered – and beyond that.

“This includes support for schemes like Northern Powerhouse Rail, which will dramatically improve access to the North’s primary international gateway and help secure dozens more direct long haul services to key overseas economies.”"

If anyone wants to read the Hansard report of the policy statement, it is here. A little bedtime reading after going to the pub perhaps?

It should have been called

Scottie Dog 6th Jun 2018 12:15

What a shame that the airport press release has a couple of spelling errors - the most obvious is "exiting" rather than "existing" two full length runways!!

MANFOD 6th Jun 2018 12:34

Thanks Suzeman
Had a quick scan of the Hansard report and noted that comments and questions about cost and the potential risk to the public purse from the Labour Shadow Minister and Justine Greening appeared to go unanswered by Grayling. No surprise if so.
May in PMQs seemed to imply that all the costs re R3 would be privately financed. So all the costs associated with road works and mooted new train links to the airport are being fully paid by the private sector are they?? And what about compensation to house and businesses affected - how is that being paid for?

Andrew Cowan's response got a remarkable headline in bdaily north west. Apparently he welcomed the government decision for the vital expansion of Heathrow and in the first sentence of the report he 'hailed' it. Hmmm. a classic case of a headline not quite matching the detailed article that followed.

A pity that it can’t move it’s own workers successfully from Staff East to the terminal and back!
