February 2016 Passenger Statistics

February 724,612 +15.2

And how our Long Haul airlines did and some of our most popular routes.

Turkish Airlines +20

Turkmenistan -22

Emirates +29

Air India +2

PIA +11

United -15 (less capacity than last year).

American carried more passengers than United with 4127 vs 3752 respectively.

Jamaica +7

Budapest 2455

Poznan 2716

Warsaw 2671

Larnaca +37, Chambery +22, Berlin +20, Dusseldorf +10, Munich +11, Stuttgart +23, Dublin +33, Milan +80, Rome +154, Amsterdam +20, Alicante +31, Barcelona +222, Malaga +45, Fuerteventura +47, Gran Canaria +41, Tenerife +25, Keflavik +31.


Once again there are no figures for Madrid.

All of the Wizz routes have average load factors in the high 80's.

EMIRATES A380

Well its one week to go before the eagerly awaited first scheduled Emirates A380 arrives at BHX, however before then we have and i stress this has been changed a few times so expect further changes.




At the moment the A380 test flight is due from Hamburg on Tuesday evening. It's planned to be in 24 hours or so giving plenty of photo ops :smile:

Very much subject to change though.

Emirates 777 operates from a different stand for one day only as its normal stand was in operation for the Emirates A380 test flight whilst a Norweigan 787 arrives for attention by MAEL (Monarch aircraft engineering)

This stand will be the stand for Qatar Airways when they start from BHX next week

BHX attracts more flights than MAN, so BHX could overtake and close the gap on MAN, BHX attracts more than a million passengers from all over the world
