Busy day at BHX

Great selection of "Tails" you can see at BHX. In a few weeks we will also have the Emirates 3rd daily 777 to DXB in that photo too. GREAT


Boom time at BHX

EMIRATES UK-DXB June 2015

Interesting stats for Emirates at BHX and this is without our 3rd daily 777 which starts next week and June is Low season.

Could BHX overtake MAN for Emirates passengers ??????
In June

BHX - DXB = 38,567
MAN - DXB = 60,942
GLA - DXB = 32,882
NCL - DXB = 16,460
LHR - DXB = 175,005
LGW - DXB = 65,290

It would be difficult for BHX to close the gap on MAN as they have 2xA380 and 1x777 daily and are growing at around 2% a month against the same month last year. Rumours are for a 3rd A380 but nothing confirmed.

What about a 4th Daily Service to MAN? I have been hearing about suggestions of such a thing for quite some time now.

Capacity upgrade at MAN is expected but no one knows what it might be or when. (yet). However, this is a BHX page so let's not get too distracted!

Birmingham Airport has set another new passenger record, seeing its busiest day ever yesterday, Thursday 13th August 2015. Almost 40,000 passengers used the airport during the 24 hour period, an increase of 1% over the last record day almost ten years ago to the day, on Friday 12th August 2005.

Of the 39,256 passengers that used the airport yesterday, the biggest growth sector was seen on long haul routes which increased by 46% compared to ten years ago. This growth has come from the popularity of flag carriers, particularly from the Star Alliance group and the airport’s ability to handle long range aircraft due to its £300m investment over the last decade.
“This is due to many factors, including the significant investment that we have made to improve facilities and increase capacity, plus our strategy to attract a greater range of airlines, routes and passenger that are clearly enjoying the experience that they have at Birmingham. “

Our offer, and that of the Midlands region in terms of trade and tourism, plus Birmingham’s excellent location and transport links has meant that we have been able to attract some of the world’s largest airlines, including American Airlines, Air France/KLM, Air India, Emirates, Lufthansa, Hainan Airlines, Turkish Airlines and United Airlines and offer passengers and businesses in the region far more connectivity and cargo opportunities.”

Countries with most growth compared to the previous busiest day included Delhi/Amritsar (+537.1%), Barcelona (+425.7%), Dubai (+268.4%), New York JFK (+100%) and Rome (+130.7%).
Paul Kehoe, the Chief Executive of Birmingham Airport, said, “Not only have we had twenty-seven months of continuous growth and seven record months so far this year, we can now celebrate achieving our busiest day since 2005.

A little snippet from another forum - apparently engineers have been measuring stand 54C for a third jet bridge while Alpha caterers have been advised to be A380 ready in the next six months.


Great news when confirmed, rumour is a May 2016 start.
