This coming December will be a very, very busy one for the mornings!
Welcome the Ali Baba ExpressWelcome flights to HANGZHOU :banana::banana:
MF813 HGH 2015 MEL 0945+1. ..3..6.
MF814 MEL 1135 HGH 1905 ...4..7
Both flights extend to Xiamen
Jetstar to launch Melbourne-Zhengzhou twice-weekly 787 service in December. Jetstar used to have flights to Wuhan until charter deal ended.
The future decision will largely depend on the impact of Batik Malaysia/Malindo's expected launch.Interesting to see AirAsiaX’s plans in Australia over the next couple of years.
Relevant points for MEL:
They note Melbourne as their most successful destination in Australia. I think that statement might be true for Malaysia in general.
The CEO also states that they are considering making MEL 3x daily year round.
Just waiting for the schedule now - I expect sometime next week.^^ That is very encouraging to hear! MEL has always been the most successful market for Malaysia and it is only growing!
From Will Horton (CAPA):
Yeah i've lost track of whats going on there.Unfortunately it looks like OD have pushed back plans for adding the A330 to the fleet for now. So I don't think we may see them this year at all, but atleast we now that they have rights to fly to MEL so possibly maybe something like MEL-DPS-KUL could still happen.
The Lion Air Group are really messing up their aircraft allocations!
Now up to 13 Chinese cities confirmed.^^ I actually have the whole schedule for the peak season, however there are variations and seasonal changes that i have not noted.
JETSTAR LAUNCHES DIRECT FLIGHTS TO MAINLAND CHINA
JQ to begin MEL-CGO flights on 06DEC, operating every Wednesday and Saturdays.
I've lost track with what's going on with MEL new services period.... been sort of out of the loop for awhile...Yeah i've lost track of whats going on there.
They're not likely to be narrow bodies are they?I've lost track with what's going on with MEL new services period.... been sort of out of the loop for awhile...
So the new airlines (all wide-body passenger airlines) confirmed between now and the end of the year:
AIR CANADA (seasonal)
Once Tianjin starts, I believe MEL will have the most mainland Chinese airlines flying here (outside of Asia of course)
....and I suppose still waiting to see what's going on with Cebu Pacific, Lucky Air and the above mentioned Malindo?
Anything missing? Soorox?
So 31 international carriers confirmed of which 29 of them will be flying widebodies regularly here.
Good luck with that. Private corporate owners remember and those fund managers have only one goal - profit! hno:Went to drop someone off at the airport this morning. Honestly the place is an absolute joke. It took THIRTY MINUTES to get from the Tulla Freeway exit to the terminal with traffic banked up all the way back to the T4/business park exit.
You've essentially got 1970's infrastructure trying to carry 2017 traffic volumes. ENOUGH! If anyone who works at the airport is reading this: DO SOMETHING!!!!!!
