The rumour is that they will be taking over the Flybe routes to Paris and Amsterdam due to some competition rules at these airports but they are not taking over all the Flybe routes.

The AMS and CDG routes will be thrown open for all appropriate carriers to bid for, they will not automatically be given to any one carrier.

Nope, the article clearly states that the flights will be operated by a Glasgow based aircraft. The current Belfast and Geneva services are flown by aircraft based at those two cities. BHX does not have an Easy base and i think with the exception of Heathrow is the only one of the UKs top ten airports where this is the case.

Surprised Easy have chosen the GLA/BHX route rather than EDI/BHX which tends to carry a lot more passengers. Maybe they will come on that route too at a latter point.

Historically there have often been two airlines serving the routes between BHX and the two largest Scottish cites; BA and BMI have also flown both routes in the not to distant past.

Easy looks to be a max of two flights a day where flybe have 5 or 6 departures so each airline will serve different markets. Flybe user the smaller Dash props but over this distance there is no time advantage offered by the larger Jet powered Airbus, so the business traveler will prob stick with Flybe.

Turnover has climbed at the business behind Birmingham Airport despite the collapse of Monarch Airlines contributing to a drop in passenger numbers during the year. The airport, which welcomed a new chief executive in January, said it was looking forward to a year of solid growth.

In the year to 31 March 2019, turnover at Birmingham Airport Holdings Ltd rose from £155.5m to £160.8m while EBITDA increased by 1.6 per cent to £76.3m. Pre-tax profit for the period dipped from £34.5m to £32.1m.

Aeronautical income grew by 2 per cent, while commercial income grew by 4.4 per cent.

The increase in turnover was achieved despite a 2.7 per cent decrease in passenger numbers to 12.5 million which was principally driven by a reduction in scheduled passengers following the insolvency of Monarch Airlines in October 2017. The drop in scheduled flyers, however, was offset by an 11.7 per cent growth in charter passengers.

Birmingham returned to growth following the loss of Monarch from October 2018 with a 5 per cent increase in passengers in the second half of the year, which a spokesperson for the airport said had continued throughout this year.

Lost capacity following the demise of Monarch was picked up by additional aircraft from Jet2, Primera Air, TUI and Thomas Cook, although Primera, a low-cost long-haul operator, also failed later in 2018.

Looking forward, the airport, which welcomed Nick Barton as its new chief executive in January, forecast solid growth for 2019/20, supported by the expansion plans of a number of airlines.

Jet2 is continuing to build its presence at Birmingham with a further two based aircraft, providing new routes and increased frequencies, while Turkish Airlines will re-establish a twice-daily service to Istanbul, providing greater connectivity to Middle and Far Eastern destinations. TUI will be flying increased frequencies and the airport is also set to welcome Lauda Motion from winter 2019, operating a three-weekly service to Vienna.

In a report within its results, Birmingham Airport said it was already the preferred national and international aviation hub for the Midlands and its ambition was to build on this to become one of Europe's leading regional airports, "acting as a key economic accelerator, delivering great service to passengers, and helping to showcase the region at the upcoming Coventry City of Culture in 2021 and Birmingham Commonwealth Games in 2022".

The spokesperson added: "We're now commencing the first phase of a £500m master plan programme to extend and improve the terminal and passenger facilities."

They’ve already planned to move the car rental areas if cancelled could they claim compensation? I can’t see it being scrapped the amount of work near the interchange station though to be honest

Just over 234,000 passengers flew between BHX and Glasgow last year so reasonable demand that should sustain 2 carriers given a fair proportion will be business related.

Long queues, crowded terminals and pricey parking charges have led to Belfast International being rated the UK's worst airport in a survey by consumer magazine Which?.
Customers gave the airport an approval score of 42%, saying it was "shabby", "understaffed" and had a poor layout.
It came just behind London Luton on 43% and Manchester T3 on 47%.
By contrast "cosy" Doncaster Sheffield came top, followed by Birmingham and Heathrow's Terminal 5.

Birmingham Airport Awarded Star UK Airport 2019

Birmingham Airport has again scooped the UK Travel Agents Star UK Airport Award 2019.

The Travel Bulletin Star Awards sees the travel industry competing for prestigious awards and Birmingham Airport was up against some of the biggest names in the business.

This is the fifth time that Birmingham Airport has won this award in the last six years and was up against strong competition from other UK airports with entries from Bristol, London City Airport, London Gatwick, London Heathrow, London Stansted and Manchester.

This award is testament to the large investment that the airport has made to improve both the journey for the customer and the infrastructure in the airport. In addition to recent developments the airport has recently launched its Master Plan which shows how Birmingham airport will grow from 13m passengers to 18 million passengers by 2030.

Tom Screen, Aviation Director, Birmingham Airport said: “I am delighted that we have won this award for the fifth time in six years. This accolade is hugely important to us as it is voted by the travel trade who listen to the requirements of our customers, selecting Birmingham Airport on the merit of its routes and customer service.

“We have the biggest travel trade team in the UK, comprising of four ‘gurus’, who cover a large catchment area to ensure that Birmingham is at the forefront of all of our travel trade agent’s minds when booking customers holidays and business trips. The teams’ hard work, and that of all of our terminal, security and operations staff, has meant that we have retained this very important award once again.”

This award comes shortly after Birmingham Airport being announced as the second-best airport in the recent Which? Annual Airport Survey.

The Travel Bulletin Awards recognise and celebrate excellence by acknowledging suppliers that have flourished over the last 12 months, providing the best products and services to travel agents nationwide.

The voting was conducted exclusively by high street, online and home-based travel agents.
