At least its something, but to be honest, would have actually thought they'd have been announced as summer routes now...?

Still rumoured on the baby front is Valencia, weather or not it would be from EMA though i don't know.

I agree its a long 48 hours, i was saying this to the loadies on Cargo East late last night and one of them was saying he heard that there was to be major exspansion by bmi (baby?) he said bmi ? at EMA that would make bmi the biggest based opertor by far, he was talking 10+ units not sure i can see that, still think they'll end up with Jet2 unless the Germans think they can get rid of their old classic to bmi? who knows with bmi, either way good luck to all

It was on the 3rd September when they announced the 48 hour expantion plan, however, its now the 8th. I doubt it now, Valencia isnt on the website as of yet from MAN, and Cork and Venice aren't yet available from EMA, so who knows! Maybe thats a mistake and were meaning to say 48 days or maybe even 48 months!

About the bmibaby expansion,
also spotted that the Geneva flight is becoming year-round, now in the timetable until Oct 2010, on Mon/Fri/Sat/Sun plus Tue in the summer schedule. I believe it was winter-only from EMA recently.

bmibaby ema

Have checked the 2010 flights and if i am correct it shows 8 aircraft fri/sat/sun/mon and 6 aircraft tue/wed/thur, is the flights on the timetable up to date for 2010 or are we to see more new flights and increase in flights quoted.

Nice to see my quote for jet2 to arrive in 2010 has now confirmed.


regards

Germanwings at EMA?!

Flying GVA-EMA on easyJet a couple of days ago, I was sitting in the front row and having a chat with the cabin crew up front, asking them about the impending base closure etc... and the senior said she had heard a very strong rumour that Germanwings are considering putting 3 A319s into EMA.

Sounds a little far-fetched to me with established competition already there in Ryanair and bmibaby, but has anyone heard anything else on the subject?

Well i doubt it would be true in the fact that germanwings would set up base their, however there could be some truth within the rumour.

Germanwings are owned or have large shares by Lufthansa. It could be the three extra aircraft bmibaby will be needing for the new routes from the base next year. Obviously the bmi group also being part of lufthansa now.

German wings and Baby are both wholly owned by Lufthansa. Baby have asked LH for extra aircraft for EMA. In the ratings system I think this rumour comes under "possible".

Why would it be cheaper for Lufthansa to base three Germanwings aircraft at EMA rather than throwing in three knackered 737-300 from the 2nd hand market? It is not that Germanwings is struggling to find work for its fleet. Germanwings has been leasing in third-party aircraft every summer in the past couple of years. Would it be an indicator that Germanwings has much lower production costs than bmibaby?
