    6 Jul 18 - Stephen Nuttall - 0.5 NM North of HMS Nightjar

    Flew into Bournemouth on Sunday 24th June to give the greyhounds a short break on the sea front, departing on Wednesday 27th. Flying in from Blackpool was a 1 hr 50 minute flight in a Robin DR400 and the approach to Bournemouth was via Tarrant Rushton disused airfield at the request of Approach. Fortunately, Sky Demon makes this late change of arrival route very easy and the airfield was both easy to spot and approach/tower very helpful.

     

    We used Bliss (Bournemouth Handling) for our stay and three nights parking and they marshalled us into a very busy parking spot (which seemed like miles from the runway!) Having taken our tow-bar with us, we let them park it up after we got our baggage out as the parking spot was not accessible on arrival due to the amount of traffic. Bliss were great – they arranged a taxi for us to collect our hire car (Hertz – good deal for three days) from the other side of the airfield and refuelled us whilst we were away. Total charges were around £280 including £150 for fuel. £130 for three nights parking and landing fee? Not unreasonable for an airport such as Bournemouth and VERY friendly and helpful. A good destination for a short break, but probably a bit expensive for an afternoon ‘jolly’.

     

    Bliss staff were some of the friendliest and helpful I have met at large airports and did a very professional job in a relaxed manner. (And the greyhounds got water and cuddles as well….).
