We also saw a C5 Galaxy from Mildenhall and C17 from Brize Norton,and I missed it all.
I do love this time year though,you just never know what will turn up on diversion.
Incidentally it has been reported that the C5 had hazardous cargo on board.Anyone know what that could be,weapons perhaps?

EMIRATES A380

Well its goodbye to the A380 on the Emirates 39 flight to Dubai and Oh Hello to the A380 on the Emirates 37 flight from tomorrow (01 Jan 2017)

Good move by Emirates as the EK37 is always the most popular of all the 3 daily Emirates Flights from BHX.

Birmingham Airport has been named the world’s most punctual airport in 2016 by air travel intelligence company OAG, with 91.28% of arriving and departing flights operating on time.

With over 100,000 scheduled flights from Birmingham Airport last year, the most punctual route was to Dublin, boasting an on-time score of over 95 per cent. The UK airport beat contenders from countries such as Japan, Brazil, America, Germany and Australia to claim the global crown.

On receiving the award, Birmingham Airport’s Chief Executive, Paul Kehoe, said, “To be crowned the world’s most punctual airport in 2016 is a tremendous prize, particularly in the busiest twelve months in our 77 year history.

“This achievement is a result of a team effort by the seven thousand employees and 140 companies operating at the airport - from the ground handlers to bus drivers, fuellers to caterers, and cleaners to office staff.

“We have invested £350m in the last ten years to improve the airport infrastructure and we’re currently working on a further one hundred million pound development project to improve passenger facilities even further. These investments have helped us achieve this award because we can offer our customers an efficient service that makes us proud to be an airport that is easy to get to and easy to get through.

“We work closely with our airlines and handling agents to ensure that delays, which are within our control, are kept to a minimum, and we thank all of our partners for their continued hard work to become the world’s most punctual airport.”

OAG’s punctuality league is based on approximately 54 million flight records using full-year data from 2016.

John Grant, Senior Analyst at OAG, said: “The UK’s airports and airlines have always been leaders in the global aviation industry, delivering exceptionally high service levels. The success of Birmingham is just another example of how the UK’s regional airports have created world-class facilities and networks that both connect their regional communities to the world, and provide valuable economic growth.”

The multi-million pound developments seen over the last decade at Birmingham Airport have included a runway extension to allow for more long haul flights, a new state of the art pier with parking stands to accommodate the world’s largest aircraft, more security lanes and becoming the first airport of its size to operate its own air traffic control services in 2015.

Fantastic 2016

Birmingham Airport has recorded its busiest year in history seeing over 11.6 million passengers pass through its terminal in 2016.

In total 11,639,738 passengers travelled through the airport over the course of the year giving an increase of 14.2% compared to 2015 - equivalent to just over 1.4 million more people.

The busiest month was August when almost 1.3 million passengers were recorded in a single month and the busiest day was 26 August. Over the course of the year there were six months in which over a million passengers were recorded and the airport has now seen twenty-two months of consecutive record breaking growth.

December’s passenger figures significantly contributed to this total. Almost 845,000 passengers travelled through the terminal in the final month of 2016 – an increase of 23.7% year on year, equivalent to over 161,000 more people.

Both long haul and short haul sectors saw similar levels of growth in December with long haul up by 27.3% and short haul up by 23% year-on-year.

Paul Kehoe, Chief Executive Officer at Birmingham Airport, said: “Last year was very fruitful as we celebrated the busiest 12 months in our 75 year history and were crowned the most punctual airport in the world by air travel intelligence company, OAG.

“We have also seen the list of long haul global connections rapidly expand which has resulted in more than a 27% increase. Qatar Airways arrived in March offering daily flights to the state of the art Hamad International Airport in the rapidly developing capital of Doha.

“Other new carriers in the past year have included Iberia Express, Blue Air, Czech Airlines, Cobalt and Albastar who have bought low cost seats to popular short haul destinations throughout Eastern and Central Europe. We also saw the introduction of the magnificent Emirates A380 aircraft in March.

“Whilst we have experienced an incredibly exciting year, Birmingham Airport is well-placed to continue growing. We look forward to launching more routes, a wider selection of airlines in 2017 and we plan to invest £100 million before the summer in our terminal and infrastructure facilities.”

Overall in 2016 scheduled traffic accounted for 89% and charter made up 11% of the total for the year.

In December, schedule traffic accounted for 92% of flights and saw a 24.4% growth rate compared to the same month last year, whereas charter traffic accounted for 8% with a 15.4% growth rate.

Caribbean, African, Asian and Middle Eastern destinations saw the greatest increase in passengers compared to the same month last year.

Scheduled destinations with significant year-on-year passenger growth in December were Madrid (+231.5%), Poznan (+130.2%), Warsaw (+76.4%) and Budapest (+70.6%).

Charter destinations with significant growth were Sofia (+173.8%), Shannon (+104.6%), Chambery (+59.7%) and Tenerife (+26.3%).

“More airlines and routes are to be announced in the near future and so we expect the airport to continue to grow and be successful over the next 12 months.

“We are also finalising details regarding our 2030 Master Plan, which will be published over the summer months, this will show our long term commitment to improving services and facilities for our passengers and how we plan to grow as an organisation going forward.”

British Airways return to BHX

BA to launch four new summer-only services after last operating from Birmingham Airport in 2007.

BA is launching direct summer-only flights to Malaga, Ibiza and Palma in Spain and Florence in Italy from May.

The new return flights will operate once a week, at weekends.

British Airways last flew from Birmingham in 2007 when the regional airline business was sold to Flybe.

Since then Vueling and Iberia Express, subsidiaries of British Airways' parent company International Airlines Group, have started up services to European destinations such as Barcelona and Malaga.
Luke Hayhoe, British Airways' commercial and customer general manager, said: "We are very excited to be returning to Birmingham with four very popular routes.

"Customers can once again enjoy competitively priced flights to the sun, direct from their doorstep with British Airways, to those destinations they tell us they want to fly to.

"We look forward to a busy summer at Birmingham."

David Winstanley, chief operating officer for Birmingham Airport, added: "Having British Airways return to Birmingham is not only great news for the airport but also the Midlands region and we are confident this is the beginning of a long-term growth plan with the airline.
