With the virus situation still making all our lives a misery it's next to impossible to hazard a reasonable guess as to how airlines will react to anything at the moment.Given the recent jet2 announcement and now the Cardiff wizz announcement I wonder whether easyJet and / or Ryanair will respond ?
I am sad to report that Tuesday was my last day working at Bristol Airport. I like so many in the Aviation industry, have been made redundant as the industry adjusts to the new normal after Covid-19. I am gutted; I loved working for Bristol Airport, connecting the West Country to the world, working with the airlines to offer more routes and a better experience from your local airport, and working with a fantastic team who will carry on their great work now I'm gone.
But I also want to take it as an opportunity, to move on to a new challenge, a new team, and maybe a new industry. I am still working out exactly what I want to do next, but if you hear of something that you think might be of interest, please drop me a line.
Most of all I want to say a huge thank you to my Bristol Airport family, for making it an amazing journey over the last 3 years. Best of luck for the future, and thank you
It's always disappointing to hear of anyone's redundancy. I'm assuming that Nigel Scott is the most senior member of the airport staff to leave in this way during the pandemic.Nigel Scott was made redundant from Bristol Airport 5 months ago according to his LinkedIn account.
You know far more about the activities on the South Side of Bristol Airport than I do, Severn, but it does seem that it is a thriving part of the airport and probably unknown to most people apart from those connected with the airport in some way and those who are interested in the local aviation scene.Bristol based Centreline has a VIP terminal and hangar on the Southside of Bristol Airport. It has it's own fleet of executive aircraft as well as handling visiting aircraft and corporate shuttles (BAE, Airbus etc) along with providing maintenance in its hangar and training services. It is owned by the Guernsey based Pula Aviation Services and has now added another arm to it's growing company having now bought the name and assets of Capital Air Ambulance which was based in Exeter providing medical flights using King Air 200s. Links below provide some good information for anyone that's interested:
If the busses still advertise BRS airport then that is good for the airport. Any idea how long they will be doing this service.Long may it continue.The fall off in traffic at BRS has resulted in some of the Airport flyer buses being redeployed. Two single deck examples are currently on Rail replacement work. The buses are branded for the Weston Super Mare - BRS service but are working between Cardiff and Merthyr Tydfil.
