Air India's brand new Dreamliner VT-ANU arriving at BHX. I believe she is currently the only 787 wearing an Alliance livery.

Marco Pierre White lands at Birmingham Airport

We are going rather POSH.

CELEBRITY chef and restaurateur Marco Pierre White is to open a new venue at a Birmingham Airport hotel.

Located at the 239-bedroom Holiday Inn, the new restaurant will be a Marco’s New York Italian to replace the venue’s existing Grill Room restaurant. With 120 covers, the venue is expected to open mid May 2015 and will serve the famed chef’s take on American-Italian food.

Jason Hiley, General Manager at the hotel said: “The opening of Marco’s New York Italian is perfect for our hotel and is one of the last pieces of the jigsaw in the hotel’s development.

“It follows a series of improvements at the venue over the past two years, which has made the hotel a real hub for the community, as well as the ideal place to stay for those travelling from the airport.

“The presence of a Marco Pierre White restaurant will bring an exciting vibe to the hotel and will sit well with those looking to do business in a relaxed setting, as well as visitors to the NEC.”

NORWEIGIAN AIR SHUTTLE WINTER 2015/16

New Routes to Tenerife and Gran Canaria in the canary islands plus Madrid, Barcelona and Malaga also bookable for Winter 2015/2016.

This is great news for BHX and gives much needed extra capacity to spanish destinations, especially direct flights to Madrid.

Rumour is that BHX will be the 2nd UK base for them after London Gatwick.

Norwegian continues UK expansion with three new routes

Norwegian today announced further expansion in the UK with three new routes set to launch from Edinburgh and Birmingham airports to the Canary Islands this winter. In total, Norwegian is adding almost 100,000 seats between the destinations.

The three new flights went on sale this morning at www.norwegian.co.uk and will operate year round using brand new, 186-seater Boeing 737-800 aircraft with free WiFi for all passengers.

Details of the new flights:

Edinburgh to Tenerife launches on 29 October and will operate twice per week on Thursdays and Saturdays with fares from £59.90, one way
Birmingham to Tenerife launch on 2 November and will operate on Mondays and Fridays, with fares from £49.90, one way
Birmingham to Las Palmas (Gran Canaria) launch on 6 November and will operate on Fridays, with fares from £49.90, one way
The announcement follows on from the introduction of the UK’s first low-cost flight to San Juan in Puerto Rico last month. Norwegian is offering flights to the Caribbean destination from as little as £181 from London Gatwick. The airline also offers low-fare flights between London Gatwick and US destinations including New York, Los Angeles, Orlando, and Fort Lauderdale.

"We are pleased to announce further growth in the UK with the addition of new, winter sun destinations from Edinburgh and Birmingham. Norwegian is committed to offering quality flights at affordable fares whether you are travelling to Scandinavia, Europe or further afield. Our network from the UK now extends to 58 destinations worldwide,” said Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s Chief Commercial Officer.

“We are looking forward to welcoming new and returning customers on our routes to the Canary Islands and San Juan in Puerto Rico from winter 2015,” he continued.
