Basel - Dusseldorf now on sale, 12 per week as previously reported.

Gatwick - Dusseldorf against FlyBe to come next?

July Traffic:
passengers: 4,661,068 +4.3%
load factor: 90.3% +1.0 p.p.
Easyjet numbers are effectively flat since last December.

On a rolling 12 month basis in December they were 44,583k and in July they are 44,725k. GB Air was not in the Dec figs for Jan 08 but are in July 09 ones so in effect they have stood still in Pax numbers this year.

What is clear is the spat between Stelios and the Board in 2008 and into 2009 have had a real effect on the company.

conradmueller, thanks for the link....

I had a further look around the site and it appears they have slots for the following routes....

DUS-BSL 2 Daily A319
DUS-MAN 2 Daily A319
DUS-LGW 3 Daily A319

Munich looks very interesting, from what i see they have a slot at 0555 for a departure to LGW.
https://sws.fhkd.org/EWPS/pwaitingli...psdays=1234567 see the link..
Also at MUC theres slots for MXP, FCO, CDG, BRS and others that already exist too.

It does also appear they have applied for slots at Frankfurt

FRA-MXP 2 Daily A319
FRA-GVA 2 Daily A319
FRA-CDG 3 Daily A319 plus a 2105 arrival from CDG but not departure
FRA-LTN 3 Daily A319
FRA-MAN 2 Daily A319
FRA-MAD 1 Daily A319

https://sws.fhkd.org/EWPS/pwaitingli...psdays=1234567 heres a link to the FRA applications

So all this looks very interesting for easyJet into new German destinations. What is the likelihood that these routes do actually materialize?

Small.

You can apply for slots at FRA again and again, but as there are no useful spare slots available.....

Very true...

U2 looks like they want to take on the German market. They have gone down a storm in UK, France and Spain - now Italy is in the making and they will not look more to the German market. I am very surprised that they have not taken more advantage as they did spend approx. £5m on research before deciding not to buy BA Deutsch.

Quite surprised how many routes they want to launch from MAN! Are there any more?

I think the problem for Easyjet is that Germany has strong local upmarket LCCs (Germanwings, TUIFly, airberlin), quite in contrast to France and Italy and - to some extent - Spain. Whereas Ryanair can stll find its niche below those, much more difficult for Easyjet. They were quick enough to get a decent base at Berlin (which is also a somewhat attractive inbound market), but anywhere else I see little potential at this point until one of ther established German LCCs goes bust. The one exception may be HAM.

At MUC and FRA there are very low presence of low cost carrier so Easyjet can go head to head to the LH monopoly.

Because useful slots are difficult to come by and the airports are very expensive (and not exactly desperate to attract LCC). If it was that simple, airberlin would long have based a short-haul fleet at FRA to operate a network like from TXL and DUS. I am pretty sure that Easyjet sees Germany as the toughest European market.

I would have thought that LTN-DUS is an obvious choice as there is no local competition (Although then would they drop the Dortmund service and concentrate on DUS?).

I would be very excited about a FRA service as well, I hate having to fly into Hahn on Ryanair, would much prefer EZY and from Luton would be a huge plus.

Could all be a pipedream though, we can dream...

Not a bad deal considering the free food, drinks and baggage etc. but businessmen are not too bothered about that on a LON-FRA flight of approx. 1h to 1h 15m unless they are the people who refuse to travel in business as it is 'common' and only first will do or they are loyal LH (there are a number of them!) with large amounts of miles on their cards.

However, for the realists - U2 would give LH a good go on a number of routes - remember BA at LGW?

Easyjet's fleet ??

At the current date easyjet have the following aircraft :
Aircraft Total
Airbus A319-100 127
Airbus A320-200 16
Airbus A321-200 5
Boeing 737-700 20

(The EasyJet fleet consists of the following aircraft (at July 2009)

7x B737 are based at Belfast. Others at Newcastle and Luton etc,
How come Easyjet remeoved the based A319 from Belfast. And in the winter or next summer will there be a based A319 , A320 or A321 as it says
''EasyJet plan to have disposed of its entire Boeing 737 fleet by 2011''

It wasn't a based 319. It only night-stopped from Gatwick and returned there the next morning.

I think that it is 6 x 737-700 at Belfast for EZY with the first based airbus due by christmas. Most likely I would say a 319!

No they're not. In any case AMS is mainly used for Boeing.

Does anyone know when the final 5 GB Airways A320s (G-TTOF/G/H/I/J) will be moving on from EZY?

Flying LGW-ACE towards the end of September and wondering what the chances were of getting a new G-EZT_ aircraft, some 75% of recent flights all being on G-TTO_ aircraft.
