Wigglybob - Lyon's english site has been down for the last 12 months! Don't think this means anything. Mind you, a base at LYS would be good.

My bet's are on BOH and BHX for the UK and BCN for new european base.
at least CDG for sure.

BCN is unlikely to become an easyJet base, it is just far too late now.
Clickair (Iberia) and Vueling are the 2 big local monsters.

Prospective French Bases

Have the "local difficulties" with the French taxman been resolved now? If not I would have thought EZY would not increase their based presence in France for the time being ... but I'm happy to be proven wrong!

Problems with "french taxes" seems to be solved ... and the rumor is gowing for the announce early october of 2 french bases CDG (EZY already applied from the COHOR or a lot of slots for winter saison and is waiting for confirmation soon) and LYS with the opening of domestic routes.
For CDG it's also nearly sure that EZY will move early jan. 08 from T3 terminal (the charter one) to T2B

My money is on MUC and LYS.

Would rather see AMS or PRG myself - however very doubtful.

If UK base is announced, possibly BOH in effort to ease LGW? However like EMA, cant see much in the way of expansion.

I still believe basing a/c at ALC/AGP would be a waste of resources, seens as most bases already fly there. BCN airport is growing in size, but too much competition.

LIS - good room for growth ???

Either way, i'll be putting my name down to assist crewing the new base where ever it may be (Please not France though )

Andy Harrison programmed to be on the 4th of october in Lyon for a press conference, to announce "the futur of Easyjet in France"
LYS base will be certainly a part of annoucement !

If Lyon was a a goer as a new base anyone care to comment on what kind routes EZY might like to try? Am very interested at a personal level on this one.

EDI

Going by the amount of French expansion thats happened up here this year and by the loads that BE & LS have had they would be mad to not give it a bash

It's good to see that easyJet have brought back a very popular route that we did a few years ago - it was sheer madness to get rid of it.

Let's hope there are a few more routes announced and a new aircraft.

Easyboy,

To which route are you referring and to where are you hoping we put another aircraft?

Bournemouth

what about the Bournemouth rumours? easyJet operate some obscure destinations from there - Grenoble, Krakow and Geneva. Surely if these work it would be even more profitable to operate to places like Nice, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Palma, Murcia, Madrid, Edinburgh, Belfast, Inverness etc...

Yep a double daily service to BOH from EDI would go down a treat. Would certainly give BE a run for their money on the SOU run that they now have a monopoly on.

INV may work a couple of times a week similar to their BRS service.

Would love to see them open up BLK-GVA even if it is only once per week (saturday). It would definately attract the loads but will probably never happen as EZY don't usually stick with one route from an airport, and if they do, then it would be at least daily.

"obscure destinations from there - Grenoble, Krakow and Geneva"

Whats obscure about Grenoble and Geneva?!

I'd expect to see a BOH base soon! Only a bet though....
