There may well be demand for a daily if Ireland traffic can be aggregated with NW UK traffic.

CX have had crewing issues and issues with getting new A359 airframes which have postponed those plans. Here are their numbers for 2015, courtesy of Scotty Dog.

CX performance

In 2015 CX carried 124,172 PAX from MAN to HKG. This was the routes first full year of operations. It was 4x weekly on a 3 class B77W (no F) with 340 seats.

Based on this, they carried roughly 298 PAX per flight, representing a load factor of 88%. CX have been reportedly delighted with this, and want to make the route 8x weekly either with the B77W or A359. Crewing issues have frustrated that until 2017.

Thanks for the compliment paid to the Manchester team on gaining Shaheen Air on the Islamabad route.

I am however racking my brain as to whom the 3rd carrier is on the route? Can you enlighten me?

Regards

MAN TP

Fly through video in the MEN. Still three finger piers, but they have left space for a fourth.

The cargo area looks constrained, but I'm not sure quite how that operates.

Vueling S16

Posted on both BHX/MAN threads.

Announced in Tenerife courtesy of Janet Anscombe

The Tenerife Cabildo says that from this summer there will be two new routes to TFS Reina Sofía from Manchester and Birmingham operated by Spanish airline Vueling with a code shared by British Airways. Tenerife president Carlos Alonso said that Turismo was constantly seeking to improve connectivity with the island, and is also reaching further agreements at the ITB travel fair in Berlin with Air Europa, Thomas Cook, TUI, among others.

The new Birmingham route will operate Tuesdays and Fridays from 2 June, and Manchester’s on Mondays and Thursdays from 7 July. (The Manchester route will be weekly until halfway through September). Cabildo tourism councillor Alberto Bernabé said that the two new routes announced today were of great importance with British tourists being the main holiday market here, with over 1.7m holidaymakers from the UK staying in tourist establishments in Tenerife last year, a growth from 2014 of 5%
