Just heard today that Easyjet have been in serious talks with the management of LBA to set up a base at LBA with two aircraft. Anybody know if there is any truth behind this?

EZY are downsizing their UK offering at the moment. DSA has just been cut, NCL being cut back majorly and a lot of other posters here and elsewhere stating majority of UK focus will be MAN/LGW with no new UK bases for the foreseeable future.
Add to this LBA is now a FR/LS stronghold, I cant see EZY bringing anything new to the table
Therefore I would not put any money on LBA becomming an EZY base.

New Airline

Heard on the local radio that there's a press conference at LBA this morning to announce the arrival of new high profile airline to the airport, Could this be the answer to those Easyjet rumours that have been doing the rounds?

Just been announced on Radio Leeds, EZY to start on 17th December to Geneva. No details given on whether there will be a based aircraft.
Interesting times ahead!

More info, only a Geneva flight, so presumably a Geneva based aircraft? therefore no base at LBA, yet!

Why does anyone think there needs to be another forum for LBA?

Fine if you don't mind reading and posting the same thing on several different forums. A matter of personal opinion I guess! Good luck to the forum!

Geneva

Jet2 have announced extra capacity on the Leeds - Geneva route for this coming winter, with an extra 737 rotation on a sunday and upgrade to a 757 on the morning Saturday service. The offering is now Daily Monday, Thursday and Friday, with double daily services on Saturdays and Sundays. Very interesting move considering easyJet have announced a 5 weekly Geneva service from Leeds.

Fares are VERY competitive with Jet2, and interestingly the lead in fare with Jet2 is 19.99 which is cheaper than easyJet, and the easyJet service is slightly too late in my humble opinion, not getting into Geneva until 20.45 on some days. It will be interesting to see how things pan out, especially as Ryanair has taken Jet2 head on at Leeds this summer and flights seem to have a higer load factor than last year. Perhaps Jet2 are upping their game, and actually competition is exactly what they need.

Ryanair's expansion plan

Published Date: 21 October 2010

RYANAIR'S investment plans for Leeds Bradford International Airport will be on the agenda at a major business event.
The airline's chief executive, Michael O'Leary, will be the headline speaker at the Leeds, York and North Yorkshire chamber of commerce lunch in York.

The event, sponsored by Barclays Business, will take place on December 2 at the Royal York Hotel.

Shaun Watts, president of York and North Yorkshire Chamber, said: "Michael O'Leary is hugely entertaining and a great entrepreneur.

Ryanair's investment in Leeds Bradford International Airport was a huge boost for the county and the economic benefits will be felt right across the region.

"This event is a chance to hear about the airline's plans and how they will impact upon businesses in Leeds, York and North Yorkshire."

righthand rule - speaking as a skier - you are right the Easy arriving GVA at 2045 is too late for the majority of skiers/boarders. The last busses for the resorts leave at 1915, condemming people to an overnihgt stay, an expensive hire car or even more expensive private transfer. Given that these flights are targetted at skiers (weekend and winters primarily) they need to address thier timings.

Hi

The 3 new ryanair routes to Gdansk, Fuerteventura and Dusseldorf-Weeze have commence today anyone know how forward bookings are looking?

Also notice that there are 3 x ryanair aircraft at LBA. I thought the base only need 2 738's this winter season.

I think its just while the schedules change, with routes operated by non based aircraft i.e. Alicante moving over to the 2 based units over the coming days. Not many came off the inbound FUE and Weeze, but it is only the first flights.
