Olympics Flights......

With the Olympics just over a month away, I wonder If anyone has anymore Ideas or read anything about the - type, number and details about the visiting/transiting or storage a/c that are due or expected to come to BHX.
I have found a brill pdf that shows the airports/airfields highlighted to be used for this event, and Interestingly outside of London, Birmingham Is the closest large scale airport planned to be used. Others Include Biggen, Blackbush, Lydd, Oxford, Manston, Bournemouth, Southhampton, Brighton, and abit further East Mids, but what realy supprised me was no mention of Manchester?

So does anyone have anymore Info?

News from Business Desk

New £5m business aviation centre opens at Birmingham Airport

CHARTERED plane company Eurojet Aviation has opened its new £5m business aviation centre at Birmingham Airport.

Eurojet, which is also involved in aircraft management and maintenance, has also received approval from Cessna Aircraft Company for the centre to become an authorized citation service facility.

The 41,000 sq ft building also includes a commercial operations centre and aircraft sales suite as well as a crew lounge, crew kitchen, private studies, flight planning room, shower facilities and a ‘snooze room‘ with individual softly lit ‘dens’.

Eurojet’s managing director Graeme Campbell said: “Our objective for the Eurojet Business Aviation Centre at Birmingham was simple - to create one of the finest private aviation handling and maintenance facilities in Europe. With the tremendous support of Birmingham Airport, Cessna and our other service partners, we are confident that we have achieved this.”

Campbell is hoping that the forthcoming London Olympics could provide a business boost.

“We are confident that this new world-class facility, located at such a centrally located 24hr airport with exceptional road and rail links to London, provides yet another compelling reason for operators and their clients to consider Birmingham as a very viable option when travelling to the capital this summer,” he said.

Will Heynes, development director at Birmingham Airport, said: “Here at Birmingham Airport we are always looking at ways to appeal to all markets and this is shown with the opening of the new Eurojet facility.

“We are sure this new venture will be a fantastic addition to the airport’s portfolio.”

i read on another thread a month or two ago that birmingham will play a big role in the parking of chartered jets for the olypics... many people where they can will fly direct into the lond, but the cost and logistics of parking planes there will be too much for most people, which is where i believe birmingham will be coming in.

also with birmingham being a training base for some teams, im be surprised not to see something different at birmingham!

New Lounge Set to Open at Birmingham Airport

More development at BHX

Quote:
Building on the success of its award-winning lounges at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports, No.1 Traveller announced today that it will open its latest lounge this October, at Birmingham Airport.

The lounge will be the company’s first to open outside London, creating 20 new jobs and bringing a new level of pre-flight experience to the travelling public in the Midlands.



The lounge will be located beyond security and will offer a broad and innovative range of facilities for all departing passengers, including:

• A range of seating areas to suit all guests, across two levels (featuring relaxed television and bar lounges, and a hot-desk working area)
• A fully-tended bar, serving complimentary soft drinks, beers, spirits and selection of wines
• A bistro serving a range of freshly-prepared hot and cold dishes, and a self-service pantry
• Meeting rooms, supported by business and travel concierge services
• Complimentary newspapers, magazines and internet access

No.1 Birmingham will offer the business traveller a work-friendly environment and range of business support services. For the leisure traveller it will offer a new standard of premium pre-flight hospitality, to start a holiday or for any special occasion.

Phil Cameron, Founder and CEO of No.1 Traveller says: “Birmingham Airport means business when it comes to air travel – world-class carriers, a great range of destinations and a viable alternative to London’s airports. Its passengers increasingly expect world-class services to match their travel experience and so we’re honoured to extend our award-winning lounge collection to Birmingham Airport. This new lounge marks the next stage in No.1 Traveller’s continued expansion and I am delighted that we are creating 20 new jobs as part of this opening.”

Paul Kehoe, CEO of Birmingham Airport, said: “No.1 Traveller has an excellent product and we’re delighted to award this contract and create 20 new jobs. Once open, the new lounge will be a significant addition to our terminal facilities and we’re confident that customers will be very impressed with the product.”

The No.1 Traveller lounge at Birmingham Airport will be accessible to all of the 4.5 million passengers departing from the airport every year. Entry can be booked now at www.No1Traveller.com, from £22.50 per person for advance bookings, or purchased on the door for £27.50 per person.

No.1 Traveller has already seen over 200,000 passengers enter its London-based lounges in 2012.

For more information or to make a booking, visit www.No1Traveller.com.

Anyone have any statistics for travel between BHX and India, to see the difference between before Air India left and after.

Ryanair Announces 4 New Routes From Birmingham From November 2012

Barcelona El Prat -4 weekly flights

Krakow - 2 weekly flights

Milan Bergamo - 3 weekly flights

Palma De Mallorca - 2 weekly flights

Great to see Krakow but I do hope the other three aren't Ryanairs typical way of seeing off the competition.

Unfortunately, I think that's exactly what it is. Its what Ryanair does, it sees routes doing well and wants a piece of the pie.

On the flip side at least Ryanair feel the need to defend their BHX operation given it's been so static for so long but agree it is a frustrating tactic.
