Because cities have busiest airports, doesn't mean it will make the cities popular

Another day, another airline anniversary at MAN. Icelandair states it's the 10th anniversary today. Though my records indicate they also flew here 1996 to 2002! Think they were in on Friday, charter flight Saturday, departure Sunday.

10 years of ops
Sentence to note: "Things have moved on with four weekly flights in the summer increasing now to daily frequencies in the winter months"

Routesonline on the general UK to China ramping up of sevices

Specifically for MAN:


Hainan frequency boost to Beijing to daily
Air China still has some issues (probably slot related) so October 2016 is the earliest for a route launch
NEW LINK! Hainan to announce 2 weekly to Xi'an for summer 2017

BBC on the Chinese investors honing in on the region

Hainan Airlines flight CHH7903 is on her way. Slightly late but I think that may be down to being the inaugural. B-8287 expected around 6.55am.

Found this new story on the Daily Telegraph website with the delights of Beijing that can be sampled

I'm thinking: will there be enough passenger and cargo load to upgrade the seasonal service between MAN and SFO to all-year, especially when a majority of events in San Francisco take place around the summer and fall when high-tech conferences come back to back? I mean, initially, Thomas Cook wanted to do MAN-SFO, but with Virgin Atlantic doing it, it will be a much better option. Perhaps, Manchester United should promote that service too to market the destination and make the flight a year-round operation.

From the Evening News, annual total now 24 million

"June saw 2.5 million passengers fly through the gateway, which is a 9.22 per cent increase on the same month last year.

That brings the moving annual total for Manchester Airport to 24,095,206."

I know it's peak season at present but think it's vital Manchester Airport get's this new project and terminal underway asap. MAN isn't a local airport just for Europe anymore with direct flights to Houston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, Miami, Chicago and soon to be Detroit. There introduction to China and the Far East with direct flights Beijing, Hong Kong, Singapore and many more future plans. They really need to get themselves together especially if they want to continue to expand there network.

I think a reason why Birmingham is doing so well is because a lot of people from Stoke On Trent, Stafford, Outskirts of Manchester, Cheshire and Staffordshire don't want the hassle with M.A.N. BHX is much smaller, not as busy, and even tho MAN is still rising in passenger numbers. I guarantee a big factor why BHX is doing so well and opening all these new routes is because people are sick and tired of the crowds and delays at Manchester.

Manchester Airport has worked so hard to be where they are and so lucky the demand is there and growing. If they want to continue, improve and expand as said they need to get moving on the master plan sooner than later!

But then again people are moaning at BHX becouse it is so busy this year and want to go from EMA (East Midlands Airport) next time.

You cant win.

The 39 hour delay is NOT the airport's problem. Try the airline instead.

The passport control queue is NOT the airport's problem. Try Border Control instead

The airport is acutely aware of the experience for passengers can be a bit mixed. But they've got to get everything boxed of but October should see the the 1st sod cut on the new development. It can't be coincidence on how spaced out the transatlantic routes have become

July

Manchester Airport has welcomed just short of three million passengers in a single month.

Quote:
Around 2.8m passengers travelled through the airport last month, an increase of 10 per cent on July last year. That means the airport’s 12 month rolling total now stands at 24.3m passengers.

There were also a number of announcements last month.
Singapore Airlines said it will start direct flights from Manchester to Houston from October as well as removing the current stop in Munich on services to Singapore.

The new service to Houston is one of several long haul routes set to launch before the end of the year, with Thomson starting flights to Phuket and Mauritius and Thomas Cook Airlines also starting a new service to Tobago.

This follows the launch of flights to Beijing, LA and Boston earlier this year – making Manchester Airport the only UK airport outside of London to offer these long haul destinations.


The news this month that Singapore Airlines will launch direct flights to Houston is another boost for businesses around the region. The continued increase in new long haul flights is testament to the fact people within our catchment area want to fly direct from the North of England instead of being forced to travel via London or other overseas hubs.”

The airport also saw an 11 per cent increase in aircraft movements during July, with more than 19,000 planes coming and going from the two full length runways. The amount of freight also increased by 14 per cent with 10,118 tonnes handled in July.

Heavy rain & thunder storms affected the North West tonight including Manchester Airport. Parts of the terminal flooded and many flights diverted to Birmingham, Leeds, East Midlands & London.

Everything now fully operational again.
