Talk of new winter routes going on sale by both easyJet and Ryanair tomorrow to various uk airports

BFS-BGY so far

Could we be seeing Milan added again from Ryanair and could EasyJet be going to add Venice as was stated by the uk sales rep a few months ago????

Interesting. That makes DUS the 8th largest international destination from NCL. Who would've thought that...

It's the 8th largest on that list - the list isn't complete, just the interesting one's - DUS is more like 20+ (Dubai, Tenerife, Faro, Ibiza, etc, etc)

OK. Nevertheless, interesting to note that it has more passengers than capital and hubs like Brussels, Copenhagen, Rome or Madrid. I remember the days when I flew on that route in a Gill ATR42.

The North East of England has a lot of links with the Rhine-Ruhr, and Dusseldorf is the largest airport on that region. Both being industrial regions, a lot of Geordies went to Western/North western Germany in search of jobs. I'm surprised we haven't seen a return of the Hanover route or a route to Hamburg. I reckon Hamburg would be a good shout for Ryanair.

Fingers crossed EZY and FR do have something in store for us, personal wishlist would be

Ryanair: Hamburg, Riga, Budapest, Ibiza, Chania, Rome (CIA)

Easyjet: Amsterdam, Paris, Milan (MXP), Venice

I'd be happy with Bergamo from FR but I think EZY would be better for attracting business and leisure.

Catania or Lisbon would be lovely, welcome additions but less likely

A London route (LGW/STN/SEN) would top it all off perfectly

Good news about Eastern to BHD, is it still just x1 daily? x2 daily would be better but I think that's a wise decision from them and will hopefully lead to more from them in this regard. I can't imagine IOM bound pax being all too inconvenienced by a quick stop in Belfast... Less so than BHD pax having to go through IOM anyway

Ryanair could be making an appearance over the next couple of weeks or so. Whether regarding it's Winter 17 or Summer 18, I couldn't say...

Thomas Cook are adding a Thursday NCL-CFU flight next year, taking them to 3 per week. It's available to book now and will be a late/night flight. The island is growing in popularity.

Corfu has seen an increase in frequency from NCL in the last couple of years with Easyjet now operating Sundays also. Takes it up to 7 a week for 2018.

TCX - Monday, Thursday Friday
Thomson - Monday, Friday
Easyjet - Sunday
Jet2 - Monday

I'm surprised that Ryanair haven't started NCL-CFU since they operate the route out of just about every other airport multiple times a week, out of MAN they start the route the earliest in the season compared to other operators (March/April) and they usually go out full.

Seems to be a big shift in days being added.
Don't want to jump the gun but does certain days now require 4 aircraft?

Are is there bad news of some routes being dropped or scaled back

After having a quick look at days and times (note not actual ac on route just a mock up using 3 based ac shown in colour) the only day which throws up more than 3 ac is Saturday with 4 early morning departures?
