I wonder if EDI-ORD might be considered in light of recent developments?

On the strength of EDI's dominant business pax

Jet 2 are launching Edinburgh to Milan (Bergamo) from April 2007. Looks like 4 x weekly.

Edinburgh-Pisa also up to 3 x weekly.

There's a piece in tonight's Edinburgh Evening News suggesting easyJet are to launch EDI-Malaga next summer, though so far nothing on the airline's website. Can anyone confirm?

Jet2 dropping EDI-MAN at the end of this month.
CSA dropping PRG at the beginning of January, hopefully GSM will extend their flights beyond end of December and pick that route up.

Did CSA drop the PRG-GLA route a while back as well? These flights did not last long!

At MUC, for summer 2007 three airlines have requested Slots for a EDI service

- british midland twice daily, BD685/686/687/688, ERJ145, morning/evening departure from EDI

- Adria Airways twice daily, JP201/202/203/206, CRJ200, morning/noon departure from EDI. As timings fit the Lufthansa hub operations, I assume it would be a code-share. Routing is EDI-MUC-EDI-MUC-LJU-MUC-EDI. However, Adria Airways has some experience with independent third country ops as they also fly VIE-FRA.

- Easyjet once daily, EZY6919/6920, A319, early afternoon departure.

None of the requested slots have been cleared as requested so far. The only flight that has cleread slots reasonably close to the requested times is the Easyjet flight (RTA -35 minutes, RTD -5 minutes).

Very interesting! I knew that bmi were still chasing after it but didn't know about Adria or EZY! Of course it was bmi who came closest last year when they announced it for a March 06 start only for them to pull it, allegedly due to lack of slots at MUC.

Well well, funny how small the world is we live in....

Sunday noon: Post it here.

Sunday night: News has made it to half a dozen boards.

Tuesday: The Scotsman says "According to air industry sources, British Midland, easyJet and Adria Airways have all requested departure slots for the new route. Flights to Munich are a top priority for Edinburgh Airport operator BAA."

Thursday: "EasyJet, Europe's leading low-fares airline, today announced it would be bringing more low-fares to Scotland by adding a new direct European route from Edinburgh. The daily service to Munich will bring the total number of destinations served by easyJet from its Edinburgh base to nine, with an overall capacity increase of 5%...." bla bla bla.


Maybe I should become a journo. Seems to be an easy way to earn one's keep.... Wonder if Easyjet would have announced it today if the Scotsman had not run the story.....

VC10 at EDI

Was passing through EDI today on way to LCY noticed the arrival of RAF VC10 tanker at lunchtime today. Anybody any idea why she was visiting? Must say, it still is an impressive sight, lots of smoke and noise

Cheers

easyJet, Europe's leading low-fares airline, has announced it would be investing further in its Edinburgh operation and bringing more low fares to Scotland by introducing three new direct European routes from Edinburgh Airport and increasing frequency to Amsterdam next spring.

Is that the same Newquay that they've been flying to from EDI since July 06?

Looks like Sterling are returning to Edinburgh after all, albeit on a reduced summer only basis.

2 x weekly EDI-CPH starting May 14th and running to September 9th.
