Cheltenham Horse Festival March 2015. RYANAIR Schedule

The airline today announced 30 extra flights to Birmingham for the festival, which kicks off on March 10th.

15,000 Irish racing fans are set to travel, it claims.

Ryanair is the festival's official carrier, as well as being the sponsor of the £275,000 Grade 1 Ryanair Chase (2.40pm on Thursday, 12th March), one of Cheltenham's most valuable races.

Its CEO, Michael O'Leary, owns Gigginstown House stud in Co. Westmeath.

The 30 extra flights from Ireland were scheduled "due to enormous demand", according to a spokesperson. 12 Irish-trained horses won at last year’s festival.

The airline also plans to give away tickets and flights on its Twitter account (@Ryanair) in the build-up to the festival.

LUFTHANSA at BHX

2014 was another record breaking year for Lufthansa in the Midlands with over 482,000 passengers travelling in and out of Birmingham – a like for like increase of almost seven per cent on 2013.

The figures also show that almost 60 per cent of Lufthansa passengers leaving Birmingham take advantage of the quick and easy onward connections to the airline’s worldwide network through their Frankfurt and Munich hubs.

Announcing the figures Christian Schindler, Lufthansa’s Regional Director UK, Ireland & Iceland, said: “Birmingham has continued to shine as a key market for Lufthansa within our network. The demand for our services has continued to grow and we have been able to increase capacity accordingly.

Lufthansa record year

“The figures prove once again that discerning travellers appreciate the way Lufthansa has responded to the challenges of the travel market in the face of ever-increasing competition from low-cost airlines. To maintain the leading position in our market we must be better than anyone else in terms of reliability and innovation at a competitive price.

"This is why Lufthansa continually reviews pricing on its routes to Frankfurt and Munich. In addition, the latest figures show Lufthansa has recorded the best figures for punctuality in its history with over 85% of all flights leaving Frankfurt and Munich within 15 minutes of scheduled departure time and we continue to enhance the on-board experience for customers. The large number of Birmingham passengers who take onward connections can now have the added option of our high quality premium economy product on our long-haul services.

"We are also fitting 20 Airbus A321s with a revolutionary in-flight entertainment programme developed by Lufthansa Systems. This enables passengers to connect their own laptop, tablet or smartphone via Wi-Fi to the in-flight infotainment service offering a wide range of films, TV series, music, games and flight information. Before the flight, passengers simply download the Lufthansa entertainment app or the Microsoft Silverlight browser plug-in for notebooks for free - like the whole program itself - at http://LH.com/entertainment-app-en

“Our passengers know that when they book with Lufthansa they are guaranteed to receive our high quality on-board services with no hidden extra costs. And we will continue to offer our Birmingham passengers the shortest possible onward connection times to our worldwide network through our hubs of Frankfurt and Munich.”

In 2014 the most popular onward destinations for Lufthansa’s Birmingham travellers included Vienna, Prague, Istanbul, Johannesburg, Budapest, Moscow, Graz, Hong Kong, Beijing and Tokyo.

Overall, the full service airlines in the Lufthansa Group (Lufthansa, SWISS and Brussels Airlines) continue to be among the leading carriers at Birmingham having carried a combined total of more than 708,000 passengers in and out of Birmingham last year.

Hainan Airlines of China are coming to BHX

Does this also now confirm that Hainan Airlines will or wont they go to MAN (Manchester Airport) in summer 2015.

Let the debate start ??????????

Great though that BHX has secured these flights for a second year running.

Well here is the confirmation of Hainan coming to BHX, looks like they have big plans for BHX, however i was wrong with the aircraft type, they are actually using the 767-300.

Chinese carrier Hainan Airlines will be offering an extended programme of charter flights between Beijing’s Capital International Airport and Birmingham International Airport in the UK this year, building on the success of China Southern Airlines’ flights last year. These operated between July 22, 2014 and August 6, 2014 and are thought to have generated £2.4 million to the Midlands’ economy.

The new flights, which will operate twice weekly on Fridays and Mondays, between July 3, 2015 and August 28, 2015, will carry almost 4,000 Chinese tourists into the UK on package tours and will contribute a forecasted £19 million to the regional economy. The flights will be operated by a 223-seat Boeing 767-300 configured with 32 Business Class and 191 Economy seats.

This year Routes Asia returns to China and will be hosted in Kunming, in Yunnan Province, in less than two weeks. The forum will run from March 15-17, 2015 and you can find out all the event essentials on our Routes Asia 2015 landing page.

The extended programme of flights will be formally revealed later today (March 3, 2015) at a special event hosted by Birmingham Airport and Visit Britain at The GREAT Festival in Shanghai. The event will also be attended by Chen Xiaobing, president, Caissa Touristic and Hou Wei, vice president, Hainan Airlines as well as senior representatives from Birmingham’s business community, media and executives of HNA Group, parent of Caissa Touristic and Hainan Airlines.

The GREAT Festival in Shanghai is being led by the Duke of Cambridge Prince William, Trade Minister Lord Livingston and the Culture Secretary. It is taking place between March 2-5, 2015 to showcase the best of British creativity that can help businesses innovate and grow.

“There's so much more to the UK than London, so it's great that this new route will let Chinese visitors fly direct to the heart of England this summer. Improving international connections is a key part of our long-term economic plan, and a regular flight between China's capital and Britain's second city will boost the tourist industry and help forge links between businesses in both countries,” said Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP, the UK Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport.

Recent Office for National Statistics data shows that overseas visitor numbers to the region have increased by one-third, specifically from China where visitor numbers have more than doubled.

Birmingham Airport will also unveil its new Chinese branding – ‘Birmingham Airport, Shakespeare’s Airport’ at the event. It will be used in China to promote Birmingham as a gateway into the region which is home to many great places of interest to Chinese visitors, such as Stratford upon Avon, the home of Shakespeare.

Speaking to Routesonline ahead of today’s announcement, Jo Lloyd, commercial director, Birmingham International Airport said she was honoured to be able to host the direct charter flights from Beijing this summer.

“Not only is this a significant market test, it paves the way for future sustainable scheduled flights into Birmingham from China that will support the growth in Chinese visitors as well as the region’s economy. We are also hopeful that flight programmes will include departures from Shanghai and Guangzhou as well as Beijing to Birmingham in the future,” she said.

These new charter flights will help VisitBritain to achieve its target of £1 billion in Chinese visitor spend within five years – that’s over double the current annual level.

“China is a huge tourism opportunity for Britain. Our current share is small in volume but high in value. Chinese visitors already stay longer here than in our European competitor destinations and are high spenders – every 22 additional Chinese visitors we attract supports an additional job in tourism,” said Sally Balcombe, chief executive officer, VisitBritain.

China is currently one of the fastest growing visitor source markets for the UK tourism industry at a rate of 20 per cent year-on-year over the past few years. The size of the market has tripled over the past decade, and it is forecast to continue to grow strongly for the remainder of the decade.

According to statistics from the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), 1,375 passengers made use of the China Southern flights between Birmingham and Beijing in 2014. The data from the regulator shows a total of 973,619 passengers flew on flights between China and the UK last year, the majority between Beijing and London.

The chart below highlights annual segment demand between the two countries by month over the past five years. This data shows that passenger numbers grew 74.3 per cent between 2010 and 2014 and were up 19.1 per cent in 2014 versus the previous year.
