    Airport Consultative Committee [Questions & Responses]

    Firstly thanks for the super update. I, can't believe only 25% of the steel is up! On the topic of LBA marketing if we don't already have a dedicated thread I think it might be worth having one? I noticed the "Ey up" a week or so ago and cringed at the sight of it but I thought maybe that it...

    Avooma BE Regional - a new UK regional airline?

    Avooma it is. You can all rest now as beregional is no longer the name for this start up airline. I'm not sure about the choice of name they have chosen but it is what it is, Avooma? #Avooma #StartUpAirline

    Archive Weather & Technical Diversions, Delays & Cancellations

    @White Heather This type of question is frequently brought up. All runways require attention regularly and all airports tend to have winter closures to facilitate regular maintenance. All runways occasionally suffer from damage which requires urgent attention. In most cases, a man in a van...

    Cardiff Airport - General Thread

    You have to remember, I approach this topic as an outsider. I have no vested interest in the airport or in neighbouring BRS airport. Whether either airport succeeds or fails makes not difference to me. You actually quote the main problem Cardiff Airport faces: "It's easy to get to other...

    Just Stop Oil at it again

    The Telegraph is reporting that the Police have arrested 27 people on suspicion of planning to cause widespread disruption at airports during the summer holidays. Are these people missing the point. The UK is currently holding a General Election which is the democratic way of expressing your...

    The full #REGEN might not be completed until 2026 but we will likely see a capacity increase by summer 2025.. The new arrivals facility and large spacious departure area needs to open prior to the closure of the current arrivals hall.

    Could we see APD devolved to Wales under Labour?

    In principle I'm not against handing the APD tax made from Welsh aviation over to the Welsh government to spend on whatever it chooses. If a devolved government then used its powers of devolution to lower the APD at CWL to make it more attractive to English customers across the Severn, then I...

    Security, Immigration & Border Control

    Indeed, 2pm outbound (but 10:30 express lane booked to maximise lounge time :)) Well, that seems to be whats happening, in favour of the APM (between HS2 Interchange Station and BHX via NEC and BHI), with the drop off at the south of the south terminal. Terrible location, sadly, but prime...

    Must be natural to queue outside in all weather then? Rain is in the forecast for the next few days so there's going to be some unhappy punters at BHX. #BHXfiasco #BHXsecurity
