EZY's winter 2014/15 schedule is out now. Just looked at those two airports north(ish) of London. Most key change is this:


Routes to Copenhagen and Lyon will move from Stansted to Luton Airport. Further reductions at Stansted mean only 6 aircraft it would seem.


Seems they have forgotten about the growth deal the signed with MAG last June. I can't really say I'm surprised after the way it's gone with EZY recently. Still ridiculous none the less.

What is happening? Each season there seem to be less flights in Alicante.

Am I the only one who has this impression?

Absolutely delighted to see CPH & LYS added from LTN.


Given the airlines recent growth commitments for its LTN home, these will doubtless be just the first new routes. Its great to see easyJet showing renewed commitment to its home base.

Seljuk22,

I can confirm that LGW base will have exactly 67.5 airplanes this summer. The reason its .5 is due to a spare plane shared with another base apparently.

Is that shared with NCL? I know they swap aircraft but I don't know if that constitutes as a .5

Should that not be 57.5, I've heard it to be 58 in the past, an increase of 10 on that number seems a lot!

Adfly,

no it is 67.5 at it's highest in July/August -that's what base management have said earlier this year. Don't forget all Flybe slots have been taken plus normal annual expansion.

Quite a spectacular number then! That is even starting to head towards the number of shorhaul aircraft BA have based up the road at LHR.

There's not really that much of demand to places like PMI or ALC as there used to be, places like DLM, AYT and BJV are on the increase.

Well 4.30 million people flew to/from UK airports to ALC last year, an increase of around 9.9% on 2012. I would not say that there's not really much of a demand.

An increase by other airlines, while easyJet continues to lose passengers in Alicante.

LONDON (Reuters) - British low-cost carrier easyJet said it would be the first airline to use drones to help maintain its fleet to keep a lid on its costs.

The airline said drones - aircraft that do not have a pilot on board - would be used to carry out aircraft checks, cutting down on the time it takes to make inspections, and it would also replace printed charts and log books with electronic ones to cut onboard weight and save on fuel costs.

"We are applying a range of new technologies to the aviation sector for the first time to help us run our fleet of aircraft more effectively, efficiently and safely," the FTSE 100 airline's Chief Executive Carolyn McCall said in a statement on Wednesday.

I can understand why U2 are reducing ALC. Why waste capacity on the shell suit brigade when you can get better yields on other routes.

Luckily, a consistently profitable airline takes a slightly less stereotypical and simplistic view of its customer profiles.

Given the Euro exchange rate, I would imagine easyJet has bargained on more people heading to beach destinations where people can get more bang for their buck.

And how do you know? Where do you have this information from?

Anyway let them do whatever they want, while other airlines are gaining ground in Alicante.

@chris789 The Euro exchange rate remains similar to the past 5-6 years or has even improved.
