Hello - thanks for posting again the new dual-runway opening times.

Just a quick question. You mention that the new operating times take place from 9th July - 28th October 2018. After 28th October, does this mean that the times will revert back to the original times of 6:30-10:30am, 4-8pm etc?

Many thanks in advance

Remember the good old days when you'd just breeze through.

Do you mean the good old days when aircraft were regularly blown up, when aircraft were regularly hijacked, when aircraft were used to blow up buildings, when aircraft were in danger of shoe bombers!

Oh yes the good old days were definitely a safer time, don't we miss them eh.

RSD travel will run a bi-weekly Marrakesh using Corendon Airlines Europe B737 from Feb 2019, and will also charter a weekly Aegean A320 to Heraklion from 20th October all winter.

Airport announces massive profits : Made on the backs of insufficient staffing, particularly security.

Isn't Manchester Airport the "Ryanair" of airports- where you get a very basic service and then get charged for anything & everything?

Customer experience appears not to be a priority. After all, this is an airport that last summer, thought it perfectly acceptable to close part of an operational main taxiway in favour of car parking.

What happened to their big announcement about investing in the local bus network to reduce congestion ? No, much easier to charge 3-4 to drop off, create queues at various points and then charge to bypass their own creations. It's win win for the accountants.

If nothing else, Manchester Airport needs to brush up on its image & make some immediate changes to enhance the customer experience whilst we await the magical transformation project (2028??)

Buses in Manchester are a nightmare as the councils are cutting left right and centre all over the show

Primera have applied to run EWR and IAD this winter from MAN.

Whilst IAD would be most welcome, I doubt these flights will happen given the multitude of issues PF have had this summer.

RND20 5th Jul 2018 13:27

Interesting, does this mean they wont be returning to BHX next year?

chaps1954 5th Jul 2018 13:28

Strange time to start

Holidaymaker who left car at airport returns to find 50 extra miles on clock and speeding ticket

You have obviously got access to ACls winter prelim.

Managed to get a look but not a copy heres what i can remember

Cathay A350 900 TO A350 1000 on selected dates.

Aegean to HER this winter

Esy jet 14 based aircraft.

Jet to Mumbai 4 times a week

Spicejet {again} B777 300 starting in Feb to Delhi Daily, with a 1.30 hour turnaround.

Sia extra IAH

United 757 replaced by a B767 300.

And the aforementioned Primera using an A321 presumabaly a A321LR, no dates announced for that yet.

Mostly increases to the rest of the based fleets.

sherburn2LA 5th Jul 2018 15:27

so overall a slightly better experience with the parking than with the airport then

Lee J 5th Jul 2018 18:29

A 100,000 car and the owner is willing to save 20 to 30 from my experience on not choosing official airport parking :sad:

In saying that, I'm finding the M&G a pain in the ass lately - besides the fact it isn't meet and greet, there is more often than not a queue out the reception doors.

As far as I'm aware at the present that is the answer to your question.

If I hear of anything different I'll post it.

Winter 2018/2019 - Fantasy or fact
 
The summer solstice has now been enjoyed and, whilst we possibly suffer from hallucinations brought on by heatstroke, thoughts turn to the darker months (also known as the winter schedule).

According to sources I understand that the following may, or may not happen.:-

Cathay Pacific - increase capacity with an A350-1000 between December & February.

Corendon Airlines Europe - commence a weekly charter to Marrakech. This flight will be shared with Birmingham.

easyJet - based aircraft increase to 14.

Ethiopian Airlines - Addis Ababa 4 per week via Brussels.

Eurowings - up 1 per week on Cologne and Dusseldorf but down 2 on Hamburg.

Finnair - look to be increasing from E190 to A321.

Hainan Airlines - once again a rumour of Guangzhou but this has been heard before!

Jet Airways - already reported as 4 per week to Bombay.

KLM - can Amsterdam sustain an extra flight each day?

Primera Air - Malaga already reported as a non-based flight. How about trans-atlantic? Hopefully not but watch this thread....

Qatar Airways - already reported as increasing to 18 per week and maybe up to 21.

Ryanair - 8 based units.

Singapore Airlines - increase Singapore/Houston by 1 to 6 per week.

Spicejet - now that name rings a bell. Didn't we see it for the Summer schedules? Maybe a Delhi flight but do they have aircraft?

Various other bits and pieces including United possibly upgrading to B763.

Take this all with a pinch of salt and we'll see what materialised over the next few months

RE Scottie Dog - many thanks. Appreciate it :)

Logohu 5th Jul 2018 23:20

Thanks Scottie Dog.
The notable absentee from your rather long list being the elusive Thai - dropped off the radar for the umpteenth time again I assume ??

Navpi 6th Jul 2018 06:42

Interesting list Scottie, the trend is clearly upward.

Is that true of the bread and butter operators like TUI,TCX,RYR etc. Whilst Long haul is very welcome a single based A321 operating 3x a day really ramps up the figures, 3 or 4 of these and you are looking at hefty increases.

in terms of Primera I actually hope they stay at Birmingham as thus far its been an unmitigated shambles, that is UNLESS they arrive at the very point they get the A321LR.

The A321 is ideal for smaller regional airports like BHX and It would be unlucky for Brum if they pull out completely just as the schedule settles down and they actually start getting it right.

Stansted has been marginally better....but only just !
I wonder how Paris is doing?

Re buses , our nutjobs from both Labour and the Tories in Westminster never use a bus so have absolutely zero interest.

I have no support for Corbyn BUT he was actually correct despite being ripped apart by a London based media mafia.

Check their expenses, lots of taxi and first class train and plane fares but no public transport, perish the thought !

I'm all for planning ahead and the return of IAD would be wonderful, but by last accounts they we delaying the BHX services until S19. Have their priorities changed? Get in there [MAN] before Norwegian perhaps?

LAX_LHR 6th Jul 2018 09:21

I doubt we will se Norwegian long haul from Manchester. The Max seems to have found its niche at Dublin, and the B787 fleet is even more unlikely to be seen at MAN.

Ah, Dublin. I wonder what their 4th July infographic would look like compared to this https://mediacentre.manchesterairpor...ster-liam-fox/

Bet MAG don't push out a Winter season TATL infographic..... Chicago?
