I just don't see a BOH at all. Sorry
BOH is served by EZS from GVA, available from 15 Dec.

Shamrock, why would BOH become a base of all places? Despite that dont easyjet have a minimum if three aircraft at a base anyway?

I know EZY operates to BOH. They also operate to AMM and I don't see a base there either.

Actually, the last two winters it's been operated by EZY, using a STN crew operating a W pattern. Not sure about this year.

Thanks DH. Its a few years since I used it hence the confusion. (Should have stuck to my original message that it was part of a w pattern )

BOH - GVA is also operated by LPL aircraft (in the same way as LBA is). Always amusing to see the crews selling the liverpool echo newspapers to bournemouth passengers, rather confused!!

Why

Pug, why? Because BOH has been fairly steady during the recession - this year should see around 675-700,000 pax. In fact if you look at individual routes that have remained since '07, they have seen good growth over the period. The airport sees more international passengers that Southampton and Exeter and is part of the largest conurbation in the South of England after Bristol. It is far away enough from LGW not to affect its market share.

Plus with Ryanair only on secondary points, there are several gaps in need of filling at the airport including those mentioned.

Also the success of the BOH-GVA route, with 6 flights weekly has been operating since winter 2005 demonstrating that the airport is not entirely seasonal.

But Ryanair had to go seasonal?

I'm sure out of all of the airports in Europe that they dont currently have a base at, BOH will be way down on the agenda, if they are on the agenda at all.

New route opportunities?

I have to say from the onset I really do like easyJet, the best loco in Europe hands down I believe. Looking at Holland easyJet hold their own with the market there and are well established in the country, just wondering has Rotterdam ever interested easyJet? surely LGW-RTM would work? Other countries that seem underdeveloped to me for easyJet are Poland although the competition in that country probably makes sense for the consolidation of routes to Krakow. easyJet also seem to have no interest in expanding in the Baltic's - No routes at all to Norway, Finland, Latvia or Lithuania and little routes from Stockholm and Tallinn they seem to be expanding however in Copenhagen. Moscow seems to be on the cards for Gatwick if they get the 14 weekly slots and that would be a huge win for the company, but will we ever see easyJet in Ireland again? I doubt we will and would really hope that I was wrong. To many it's a tiny market of around 5m but it holds its own due to the fact its an Island nation, plenty of routes however easyJet could target in Dublin, Geneva & Milan Malpensa spring to mind. Great company to work for however, and to all employees count yourselves lucky!... Also does anyone know how often easyJet create positions for Ground staff?

Jack1985 - not saying your suggestions wouldn't work, but some of the back story includes the following:

Rotterdam - BA and Lufthansa are launching routes to Heathrow / Munich later in 2012. Air France-KLM already operate a route to LCY. Transavia also have a significant operation in Rotterdam. In any case, Amsterdam Schiphol to Rotterdam / the Hague by train is not at all far.

Norway, Sweden - well served by Scandinavian LCC Norwegian and Ryanair, along with legacy airlines like SAS. Easyjet tried Gatwick-Gothenburg but dropped it in Jan 2012

Latvia + Lithuania - well served by Ryanair + Wizz. Easyjet used to fly to Riga but dropped it a few years back

Finland - Easyjet tried Gatwick-Helsinki but dropped it in June 2011. Norwegian currently have a fair sized operation in Helsinki.

Ireland - Ryanair had a price war with Easyjet several years back over UK-Ireland routes. Easyjet decided pouring money down the drain just wasn't worth it. Reopen Ireland, and the same scenario is at least a possibility.

No news yet as cars as I am aware.
I believe the MAD crew will be first to know well before the rest of the network, plus they will be sorting out the crew relocations. All the latest info has only been released to MAD crew via a special website set up for them. The rest of us will be the last to know which I think is fair.

Easyjet expansion

One place that's criminally underserved by EZY is the place they chose to serve first, nearly 20 years ago. Glasgow. Sure, they got on the bandwagon with bucket and spade destinations (up to a point), but all the growth has gone to EDI, perhaps for inbound reasons, but EDI, already having Lufthansa, Air France, Norwegian, Iberia Express etc etc - EZY even left the market open to Jet2, who have apparently done very well at GLA, filling in for GSM, albeit on the same bucket and spade routes. Yet EZY's cities stop at Berlin, Paris, and a half arsed Geneva.

We're keeping the faith up here EZY, but as the recession eventually ends, and FR stay at Prestwick for the foreseeable, you have a short window of opportunity here. And for those who say the market to EDI is bigger.... maybe slightly as an inbound, but GLA is a big draw for those travelling on to the Highlands, as well as a destination in itself.

Or am I havering?

There are rumours on the SEN thread that the airport is preparing for six based easyJet A319's for S13.
