New routes:

30th March: CDG-TLV 3 weekly
3rd April: FCO-MUC 13 weekly
4th June: OPO-LUX 3 weekly
5th June: OPO-STR 2 weekly

Once the third runway at Munich is completed I guess we will see a base there.

New Route

And a new route between Rome (FCO) and Alicante (ALC), first new ALC route in some time (excluding SEN as it was a STN transfer). Vueling already serve this route, so a bullish move on the part of EasyJet as Vueling are already well established in both markets!

Nonetheless, good to see EasyJet dipping their toe into the market here.

sunshine - based purely on what's happened in previous years, you probably want to start looking around late March 2015 for flights after late October 2015

Shame NCL-AMS is being cancelled, seemed it was doing well

Although it ends 31st May not 29th March. NCL-LGW ends 27th March

NCLAMS It was apparent several months ago that this route was dropped however several new routes have been announced and GVA year round now

LGWDME It is now very expensive for Russians to visit the UK and Euroland, the British need a visa to go Russia which puts them off going there and they're not the most popular of countries right now for numerous reasons. I would not be surprised to see further reductions and similar reactions from other airlines as well as reduced frequencies on MANDME too with U2.

MAN-DME is currently scheduled for 2x weekly. Doesn't seem to be much scope for frequency reductions before the route is cancelled.

There is however an argument that for those living in the UK and who don't particularly care about politics, 2015 would be a really good time to go visit Moscow. One year ago, 1 UK pound bought 55 rubles. Right now, it buys 99 rubles. If while on holiday you buy goods that are priced around ruble costs (ie not closely linked to the price of oil) and sold mainly to the average Russian resident (forget about those stays in 5 star business-centric hotels), you should be able to have a good time on minimal money.

Whilst all of your points are very valid I can't imagine many people spending £100 to get a visa to go there in order to take advantage of the favourable exchange rate. I'd rather go to Europe where the pound is at its strongest against the euro for a long time and save on the visa money and hassle.

And the people who are being frugal in hotel accommodation and in the market for cheap consumer items are going to be rather price sensitive I assume. As such the visa cost will put them off and if not, I can't imagine them being great for yield.

There will be an announcement in the near future that LGW-DME is being reduced to a daily flight instead of two.

I presume the news that BA at LGW is moving to the South Terminal means easyJet will be consolidating into the North Terminal next year

U2 in favour of LHR expansion

Not really surprising and confirms my suspicions that U2 would be at LHR if the present impediments (high slot charges, congestion both on the ground and in the air, delays, etc.) were removed by expansion.

Easy comes out in favour of third runway at heathrow

In a statement today easyJet have comes out in favour of a third runway at Heathrow instead of the proposed second runway at Gatwick - there largest base. At last someone in the airline industry has shown their heads over the parapit.
I bet it this has not gone down well at GIP but easy say if a second runway was constructed at Gatwick prices would have to go up which would ultimately mean higher fares for passengers.

I really wouldn't be surprised if they tried to go after the remedy slots that Little Red will be giving back for Edinburgh and Aberdeen.

Yes I heard Carolyn McCall' message today, makes total sense. Opening LGW up to another runway would mean an invasion of competition on its biggest patch. Whereas supporting LHR would mean securing their monopoly of slots at LGW plus potentially going into LHR where the competitive set is higher cost carriers, in essence a honey pot for a low cost carrier.

She also cited the fact that the construction of a runway at LGW would mean disruption and challenges to their sizeable operation at LGW.....
