On a historical note...


How successful was the Iceland Express service to Reykjavik?

I know the airline was a wet lease for Astreus (sp?) and subsequently folded and were bought by Wowair.

It's just cost me £350 for a flight to Iceland from LHR.

What are the pax figures for PIA's ISB-BHX service? Also, what were they like when they were flying to YYZ via BHX from KHE/LHE?

Why are they extending the runway?

I thought as technology moves forwards, aircraft require less and less runway to take off and land (eg the dreamliner) and regional airports are going to adopt the strategy of lots of smaller planes going to many destinations rather that large aircraft (like the superjumbo).

Why not build an extra runway identical in length to the existing one?

There is no need for a second runway.

in the future there will be more smaller planes, but there will always be the super jumbo's etc. Not forgetting Birmingham is a global manufacturing centre and needs to import/export goods.

The longer runway will mean:

- aircraft are able to depart with full payloads (i.e. passengers plus full cargo) meaning routes from BHX can be more profitable
- some aircraft can take off at lower power settings meaning it is quieter for local residents and more efficient for airlines
- aircraft are able to take off with more fuel, extending their range and expanding the number of destinations the airport can serve

An additional runway of similar length will not make any difference, since the existing runway is currently underused.

RUMOUR has it that Air Algerie are looking at BHX and 2/3 weekly frequency. However i fail to see the attraction of these as they offer no onward connections to India and there operation at MAN a few years ago was very unsuccessfull. However they do serve LHR if my memory is good and not sure about the Algerian population in the Midlands/North of England ?????

They do indeed serve LHR, with a mix of A330s, 737s and 767s. Maybe people from the Midlands would use it for onward connections to China for example. Could be used for connections to other parts of Africa also.

As mentioned, the existing runway is already not long enough to manage several long-haul services. Look at Gatwick, they can handle it all with one runway.

I can't imagine Qatar announcing BHX officially is that far off, they've already taken deliveries of a few 787s. It depends where BHX is on their priority list.

Yes both annual and monthly figures for all scheduled routes from UK airports are available from the CAA going back to about 1994 I think. Just do a search for CAA statistics and it shouldn't be too hard to find.
