BH Air

Couldn't find an existing thread for BH Air so have decided to create one, recently they have been sending an A320 but last weekend and the one before an A330 was sent in, this is the first time since an Aer Lingus A330 many years back has visited BRS, some photos of its arrival:

Great pics, Simon. Many thanks.
Nice pics! Am I right in thinking the A330 is larger than the 787 that came in?
I'm no technical expert but I've found these details:

A 330-200

58.82 metres long, 60.3 metres wingspan
Max seating 406
MTOW 242,000 kg
Max range fully loaded 13,450km

B 787-8

56.7 metres long, 60.1 metres wingspan
Max seating 381
MTOW 228,000 kg
Max range typical seating 13,600 km

So it does look as though the 330-200 is a bit larger than the 787-8 although not a lot in it.

Thanks for that Yokel, though the Dreamliner is more efficient so no long haul from BRS with Airbus it would seem then...

Yep could easily do long haul from BRS, remember flights from BRS would have no cargo unlike from LGW/MAN so that helps massively in performance.

The 787 is Only 6% more efficient that the A330 but is 21% more than the 767

I've heard we're likely to see the A330 for the remainder of Balkan's summer schedule.

Some good videos on you tube of the BH 330 coming down today. Hard landing. Really impressive to see this big bird get airborne from a relatively short run up...

Thanks, forest. I suppose that even if there was a full A320 load it would still amount to less than 75% full on the 330-200, but it certainly seemed to have a fair amount of the short BRS runway in hand - see below link.
