Throw away line on ABC news but startling when you think about it, theres 11% less capacity in the US domestic aviation sector today than there was in 2005 with smaller planes and lower frequency of flights.

Well if the news report was right, looking at the total traffic movements in the US, taking into account 2012 will be up on 2011 and similar to 2005, then US airlines are filling many more seats which is a good thing for them.

Just chatting to a mate in the industry - rumours of Virgin trialling a Manchester base. They've got a couple of routes that they want to open up from Manchester and so it would warrant a base operation. Will keep you posted with any further info I can drag out of him.

PPrune mentions Afriqiyah Airways starting a service to MAN, did Libyan ever restart their service? Couldn't see their being the demand for two airline services to Tripoli unless it's planning on being some sort of North African hub.

Libyan restarted a few months ago with several flights a week (3 or 4 I think) using A320. Not showing on the current Manchester Airport on line timetable though.

I will interrogate a friend who works at Virgin Atlantic on that one.

I'm not that familiar with the logistics of these types of things but from the conversation I had with my mate it seems that virgin want to trial it for six months. Because MAN isn't a 'hub' they have to send crew from London to MAN to operate their flights. The purpose of them opening a hub operation would be to have crew based permanently at MAN.

Not sure how a six month trial would work but that's the info I got from a pilot friend. Can only be good for MAN! In terms of routes - they didn't have any info on particular routes but we thought cancan and maybe India?

Manchester Airport in Etihad Airways top ten destinations


Etihad Airways has revealed Manchester was in its top 10 international destinations in 2012.

The city came eighth out of the 87 destinations the carrier flies to worldwide.

Etihad's busiest route was Bangkok, closely followed by Manila, Heathrow and Jeddah.

Sydney, Paris, Frankfurt, Manchester, Doha and Dublin complete the list of the 10 most popular routes.

It came as the airline announced it carried a total 10.29 million passengers during 2012, up 1.88m on 2011 and surpassing its target of carrying 10 million passengers in the year

Etihad's cargo division carried a record 365,000 tonnes, 18 per cent more than in 2011.

The national airline of the United Arab Emirates and sponsor of Manchester City Football Club began flights from Abu Dhabi to Manchester in 2006 and now operates 14 flights a week between the cities.

Last year Etihad opened its European call centre at Manchester Airport, creating 160 new jobs.Manchester Airport Group's chief commercial officer Ken O’Toole said: “It is no surprise that Etihad’s twice-daily Manchester service is one of the top ten most popular globally, as it serves strong demand that exists across the north, providing business and leisure travellers with access to the Middle East, Australasia, the Far East and beyond.

“The continued strong performance of this long haul route is also reflected in the overall growth in passenger numbers Manchester has experienced over the last year to become the UK’s third busiest airport.”

Virgin Atlantic has had a MAN base for years. Crew and aircraft are all based at the airport. The odd rotation into MAN is operated by LGW/LHR crews but otherwise your flight to MCO/LAS/BGI will be operated by local crew. At least cabin crew anyway but I'm almost certain it's a flight crew base as well.

MEN had article about profits rising further.

This prostitution lark seems very profitable compared to the business model many other airports operate

Lets hope some of those profits get re-invested soon. The Airport still needs a lot of investment in infrastructure to get it up to standard.
