WINTER 2019 - Planned Movements are currently +11.7% and Seats +12.7% compared with W18 season actual.
The IATA Slot return deadline for W19 was 15th July. The EU Slot Return deadline and start of historic calculation is 31st August therefore more cancellations can be expected.
CANCELLATIONS Alitalia (AZ) – Has cancelled all proposed double daily slots for LIN (Milan Linate). Anisec (VK) – Has cancelled slots for its proposed five per week SZG with A320 eff.19Dec. Austrian a/l (OS) – Slots were held to increase from five per week to daily for W19. Now remains the same as W18 at five per week and four during January.
Updated CAA stats for May are now available on their website. Guess that means another job for me this weekend along with other items of news that I have for other threads on here.
I'd better get an extra bottle of Malbec in to placate the lady
Back in September 2015 I decided that I should start to correlate statistics for Manchester and use 2005 as a reference point for historical data. My file now consists of 14 years of monthly figures and 486 destinations that have been served from Manchester over that period.
Destinations that are either new (no passengers since my records started in January 2005), or have not been served for a number of years - if the latter then the month and year of the last service is shown.
Poitiers was a new destinations served in June 2019.
Million passenger routes (Rolling annual figures)
Amsterdam - 1,049,656 passengers
The following domestic statistics are missing from the CAA report for June.
Neither Belfast International nor Exeter have reported for this month
In June 2018 these accounted for 36,667 passengers.
Moving monthly and annual figures - based on CAA statistics/MAG statistics
Monthly passengers - 2,966,156 +3.70%
Annual Total - 8,001,639 +5.69%
Moving Annual Total - 29,088,586 +3.85%
Top destinations with highest percentage increase.
Figures for the European and long haul destinations that I consider to be the main points for our connecting traffic.
Comparison of top 25 destinations - June 2009 versus June 2019
Major changes to Domestic traffic
CAA statistics for June are provisional.
As a separate item I have now started to analyze June's statistics to obtain load factors on certain routes
Calculations are based of FlightRadar24 for days of flight operation, Planespotter.net for Seat Plans and CAA data for monthly figures. All figures are purely my own and do not necessarily reflect true loads.
NB - Ethiopian and Singapore Airlines flights are shared with another city. The split of available seats that Manchester has is unknown.
Edited to show correct comparison for June 2009 and 2019
Don't think 30 million passengers will be on for this year. 29.9 million or thereabouts. Or put another way, nearly 3 times as many passengers as 30 years ago. In fact. looking at the 1989 comparison I have seen the CAA compare that year to 1984. Remarkable to think that the passenger throughput we get in 2 months is more than the number of passengers handled in 1984!
The airport's financial year is to 31 March. With a bit of a tailwind MAN might just nudge 30m pax by then. I seem to recall one of the executives predicted they would hit 30m 'this year'. Perhaps it was the financial year he had in mind.
