November 2014

Birmingham Airport has recorded the busiest November in its history, as almost 650,000 passengers passed through the terminal last month, a 10% increase compared to the same period last year.

The Airport handled a total of 646,945 passengers in November, beating its previous record for the month set in 2008 by 4.2%.

Last month’s figures also saw a rise in the number of passengers flying on long-haul services from Birmingham, up by 3% compared to November last year. Scheduled traffic in November accounted for 88.6%, with charter flights making up the remaining 11.4%

Scheduled routes that saw the biggest increase last month were Kaunas (+756.8%), Delhi (+431%), Gdansk (+365%), Marrakesh (+265.2%) and Hamburg (+147.8%). Charter services to Jamaica (+868.5%), Cyprus (+81.6%), Tunisia (+43.6%) and Egypt (+33.9%) also experienced significant growth.

November was the sixth record-breaking month for Birmingham Airport in 2014, as April, May, June, July and August also saw records smashed.

The Midlands airport looks set to finish the year with another strong performance in December, as approximately 340,000 passengers are expected to travel through Birmingham during the Christmas period – an increase of 7.4% over the same period last year.

That reminds me of the in-airport hotel found at Tokyo/Haneda Airport where fliers and regular customers can stay in it for either day rest or overnight stay in order for them to prepare them for their next flight or upon arrival.

And by the way, this is also from BHX, yet I don't know if this aircraft even has the range to fly all the way to Ashgabat...

Turkmenistan Airlines B717-200 (reg. EZ-A107)

Cello Aviation (Birmingham based airline)

Cello Aviation is adding a Boeing 737 to its fleet in a major development for the Birmingham based carrier.

It has purchased a Boeing 737-400 that will become operational with the carrier in early 2015 and is expected to create an additional 25 new jobs.

The acquisition is a major development for Cello that currently operates two aircraft, a BAe146 in 46 seat luxury configuration and a BAe RJ85 with 82 seats.

When the Boeing, which has just completed a major maintenance check, enters service it will have undergone an interior refit and been painted in Cello colours.

The aircraft has 165 passenger seats but its design allows Cello to offer various fixed and quick change business and economy configurations. It also has a range of over 2,000 nautical miles enabling it to fly direct from the UK to places such as Turkey, The Canaries and North Africa.

It is anticipated that the Boeing 737-400 will result in additional jobs for cabin crew, flight crew and administrative roles at Cello’s base at Birmingham Airport.

Cello Aviation was founded in 2010 and has become established as a major player in the European VIP charter sector but has also been broadening its portfolio to take on sub charter flying (ACMI) in support of other carriers including British Airways Cityflyer and Flybe.

“We have been looking to introduce a Boeing737 to our fleet for several months and it has been a case of waiting for the right aircraft to become available,” said Vince Essex, Head of Commercial.

“This will give us increased flexibility and the opportunity to carry larger numbers of passengers’ greater distances.”

Nim Baines, Chief Executive of Cello Aviation, said as it expands, the carrier is broadening its strategy to provide a bigger portfolio of aviation services.

“Our name has been built upon our success as a VIP charter operator and this will remain a very important part of the business,” said Nim.

“But we have also been extremely successful in operating on behalf of major scheduled carriers and we intend to build upon this growth in the business area.

“The Boeing 737 is the most successful commercial airliner of all time with over 7,700 being delivered and demonstrates by this fact that it is still going strong half a century after the first versions entered service.

“It is an aircraft that offers flexibility and low operating costs as well as the ability if needed to fly large numbers of people in comfort considerable distances.”

By adding the Boeing737-400 Cello Aviation now has a fleet of aircraft to meet a wide range of customer requirements.

The addition of further aircraft to the Cello Aviation fleet forms part of the company’s growth strategy.

Cello Aviation is part of the Gill Group of companies.

United Airlines B757-200 (WL) (reg. N12116)


By the way, do you think Birmingham is a sizable market for American carriers like United to be served with a B767-300 or B777 regularly?

Re: Birmingham and American carriers, to be honest 2015 is going to be a very important year for BHX. With the return of American airlines, if they have a successful return and can co exist with United then i do believe more growth is possible, only time will tell.

However it may not come from USA carriers, with the arrival of Norweigan Air Shuttle at BHX in march and a very strong rumour that they have big expansion plans for BHX after London Gatwick, this is supposed to include a couple of long haul routes. Orlando is one such airport which is well underserved from BHX.

Aha... to which other destinations in North America would you want BHX to serve?

One of the main reasons BHX suffers when it comes with flights to the USA is the fact that LHR is only just over an hour away and with 100 odd flights per day to the US (30 per day to New York alone) there is so much more flexibility. The return of AA gives local people more choice and will hopefully mean less pax make the journey to London, if BHX works for them alongside United then it would be nice to see ORD back in the future.

As for Norwegian it's very early days as the flights haven't even started yet but it's rumoured that TFS and LPA will be announced for winter with OSL, ARN and ALC to start in 2016, there may also be others. Long haul is a possibility in the future but only if BHX proves itself as a base and it's very early days. Just to whet the appetite though the long haul destinations that are rumoured are MCO, JFK and an East Coast US destination thought to be either OAK or LAX, there could also be an outside chance of BKK.

I would love to see a BHX-OAK service to provide an alternative to the following services from LHR to SFO:

- 2x daily BA (soon to include 5x weekly A380)
- 1x daily VS
- 1x daily UA
