Not really surprising with 12 TCX aircraft occupying stands plus the MH A380 (until the latter starts to participate in the repatriation flights).

OAN 25/2019 (which referred to Summer Operating Hours) is effective 1st April to 27th October. Therefore it implies that Winter operations start on 28th October, however I think this might actually be 27th at present no specific times have been announced for the winter dual runway times.

I hope that helps.

No diversion NOTAM extended to 14th Nov. I guess the remaining 7 TCX using up remote parking are the issue but I'm a little surprised. Has ops set the bar too high?

With the repatriation flights ended, the 7 TCX a/c left are actually significantly less than were on the ground at times while they were still operating. As you say though, the 7 are taking up remote stands, but there is much less pressure on T1 with TCX gone.

It's probably as much to do with all the taxiway and apron work as part of the TP. Nevertheless, I think there are a few of us on here who feel MAN is too inclined at times to impose a blanket ban on diversions (except for emergencies).

2.2 The works will commence at 22:00hrs (or after the last departure if that is delayed) and should be completed by 04:00hrs local.
3.0 SCOPE & LOCATION OF WORKS
3.1 The upgrade will take place in Data Centre 3 on Terminal 2, Pier 1 and will involve reconfiguring the network switches in that location.
4.0 OPERATIONAL IMPACT
4.1 The works will affect all systems fed by the IT network; these include but are not limited to: Pier and Car Park lift intercoms, Car Park access/egress barriers, Flight Information Display Screens (FIDS), WiFi, Fixed Electrical Ground Power (FEGP) Swipe, Advance Visual Docking Guidance System (AVDGS) and the Common Use Passenger Processing System (CUPPS).
4.2 The AVDGS and FEGP will be placed into ‘override’. This will keep the systems activated and available for use throughout the shift. Any unserviceability of these facilities must be reported in the usual manner by telephoning Asset Call Centre on extension 3776.
4.3 The access control system will store all permit information locally and, therefore, access/egress through the stand doors will still be available.
4.4 Car park marshaller’s will be in place at barriers, lifts and PRM points within the carpark to assist passengers during the outage.
4.5 Mitigation has been put in place to ensure that all systems are fully operational at the end of the shift.
5.0 LOW VISIBILITY PROCEDURES (LVP)
5.1 Overall, the work has no impact on the airport’s ability to operate during periods of low visibility.

OAN 107/2019 – PREMIAIR ROAD CONSTRUCTION.
OAN REF:‐ 107/2019 DATE OF ISSUE:‐ 11/10/19 EFFECTIVE DATE:‐ 27/10/19 EXPIRY DATE:‐ 29/11/19
1.0 SUMMARY
1.1 A programme of up to five weeks overall duration to construct an airside road to serve the new Premiair Terminal. The road will be constructed within grass areas to the north of Taxiway Alpha, between Stand 61 and the Engine Test Bay. The work will require night‐time closures of Taxiway Alpha between Intermediate Holding Point (IHP) A5 and the junction with Taxiway Bravo.
2.0 PROGRAMME
2.1 The overall programme of work will commence on the night of Sunday 27th October and will be completed by the morning of Friday 29th November 2019.
2.2 Work will take place Sunday to Thursday nights each week, with scope for additional working on Friday and Saturday nights, if required.
2.3 The nightly working hours will be 22:30 – 06:00L.
3.0 SCOPE & LOCATION OF WORKS
3.1 The overall scope of work is the construction of a new airside road, transiting existing grass areas to the north of Taxiway Alpha between Stand 61 and the Engine Test Bay, and will include the following tasks;
 Excavation to formation level along the route of the new road.
 Installation of sub‐base and road surfacing.
 Installation of painted ground markings.
 Electrical works including duct and surface mounted hardware installation.
4.0 OPERATIONAL IMPLICATIONS
4.1 For the duration of the works, there will be night‐time closures of Taxiway Alpha between its junction with Taxiway Bravo and IHP A5. 4.1.1 Taxiway Alpha will be fully operational outside of the nightly working times.
4.2 Engine Test Bay
4.2.1 The work will have no impact on the availability of the Engine Test Bay.
4.2.2 In the event of an aircraft engine test being required whilst the night‐time work is in progress, Airfield Operations will make Taxiway Alpha temporarily available for the towed aircraft movements to/from the Engine Test Bay.
4.2.3 Due to a section of Taxiway Alpha being unlit whilst night‐time work is in progress, towed aircraft movements to/from the Engine Test Bay are to be carried out with guidance from an Airfield Operations Follow‐Me vehicle.
4.2.4 The contractor will not be permitted to work to the west of IHP A4 whilst an aircraft engine test is ongoing within the Engine Test Bay.
4.3 Aircraft Access to Signature Aviation Apron
4.3.1 The work will have no impact on aircraft movements to/from the Signature Aviation Apron. The contractors will be working under the direct supervision of an Airfield Operations safety oversight ASCO escort, and will be instructed to curtail work, as required, to allow aircraft to pass.
4.3.2 In any case, work will not be permitted to take place within a 12.5m Cleared & Graded strip offset from the Signature Aviation apron access taxiway centreline when aircraft movements to/from the apron are scheduled.
4.3.3 Due to a section of Taxiway Alpha being unlit whilst the night‐time work is in progress, any aircraft movements to/from the Signature Aviation apron are to be carried out with guidance from an Airfield Operations Follow‐Me vehicle.
4.4 Overnight Aircraft Diversion Capability – ICAO Code F Aircraft
4.4.1 During the nightly working times, due to the cumulative operational impact of other ongoing airfield works, the airport will not be able to accept inbound diversions of ICAO Code F (A380, A124, A225, B748) aircraft. A NOTAM will be issued in such circumstances. 5.0 LOW VISIBILITY OPERATIONS (LVO)
5.1 In the event of forecast low visibility, the night works will be cancelled.
5.2 In the event of un‐forecast reduced visibility conditions (meeting the criteria for Aerodrome Safeguards) when work has begun, ongoing works activities will be curtailed at the earliest opportunity.
