Interesting that a couple of years ago BA CityFlyer tried some of these routes at weekends from BHX and BRS but withdrew them after a couple of summer seasons as they didn't appear to work for the airline. SOU has far less competition so might be a better bet in that sense. It also sits in the middle of the very big Bournemouth/Southampton/Portsmouth conurbation.

It's runway length has always been its Achilles heel and it is currently seeking planning permission to extend it slightly. The BACF Embraers should have no difficulty from the existing runway I guess.

With their runway restrictions BACF should be the perfect airline. Hopefully they'll add more over time and revive SOU fortunes.
It looks like it'll be a 2 aircraft weekend operation but 1 route Bergerac also has a Tuesday flight.
