NCL is currently 2 A319 AND 1 320.

Mixed fleets will hurt the ecomics of the smaller bases. GLA, PMI, BCN, VCE , NCL etc. Having a small sub fleet in LGW is one thing. Having a third or quarter of the fleet a different type pet base is different.

The larger bases should be A321/A320 IN 186Y should be the way forward.

I do think the Bombardier thing is just being hospitable to them and will use to negotiate with AB in future.

Easyjet are aiming to reduce the proportion of 319's in the fleet, hence leaning towards the larger Airbus model. C Series, though a great propositon, would mean a huge amount of duplication, complexity and ultimately additional costs. No doubt a full evaluation will have been done on that but my guess would be that EasyJet have a great commercial arrangement with Airbus hence, on balance unlikely to be a business case for adding c series to the fleet....

C-series could open up the market on routes where the A320 is too big.

Flew as passenger on 01 August and saw in the August issue of the in-flight mag that Are/Ostersund has appeared on the destinations map.
http://traveller.easyjet.com/emagazi...9/august-2016/
(jump to page 139 or page 173)
I don't recall seeing it on the map in the July issue or earlier this year or last year

Ostersund is not a major business centre by any means and the main reason to go there for leisure purposes is to skiing and winter snow.
Granted it's possible Easyjet are operating some winter charters to Ostersund but why would Easyjet add blurb about getting from airport to town by bus or taxi for people on package hols with inclusive transfers ?
Perhaps Ostersund is to be announced formally in early September (once Europe gets back from their beach hols) to be a winter ski destination starting Xmas 2016 ?

Article (in Swedish but Google Translate gives the general gist) suggesting the tourism authority in Ostersund was talking actively to Easyjet earlier this summer, including the possibility of offering attractive commercial terms.

For those interested, Ostersund is famous amongst Swedes for the monster living in a nearby lake, similiar to Nessie

It won't just be packages with EasyJet Holidays or Thomson/Thomas Cook who block book seats. Independent travellers will also be making the trip.

Interesting new destination. Scandinavia doesn't seem to work for EZ apart from CPH. I should have thought it would be on sale by now though.

Ostersund is also a popular Swedish ski destination.

Scandinavia hasn't really been on the map for a long time with EZY. It is worth noting that quietly introduced for this winter was Lyon-Stockholm which is the first EZY operated service to Sweden (GVA is EZS).

They don't do any LGW ARN, CPH is about the height of it in Scandinavia, Bergen was prob the most recent route tried, disappointing that didn't stack up for them... They do ARN to LYS and GVA..

Easyjet have never served Stockholm from LGW or any other UK airport, their only previous Swedish destination was Gothenburg.

Easyjet in Sweden

Easyjet flow to Stockholm from Malpensa and Geneva from 2008 to 2011. EasyJet opens routes from Stockholm's Arlanda airport - The Local
Gothenburg was served from Gatwick, Manchester and Berlin in 2010, but none of these routes lasted for very long.

I'm thinking Ostersund would be more likely connected to the beach bases (Palma, Barcelona etc?), rather than the city routes EZY has tried before.

toledoashley - certainly possible but why would anyone in Ostersund want to talk to journalists about offering particularly attractive commercial terms to an airline to largely fly local residents to the beach ? There would presumably have to be some sort of inbound tourism for a local body to be preparedto put up substantial cash. Use Google translate on the Swedish article if you want the full details.

Furthermore flying from a minor provincial city to a beach possibly fits closer to Ryanair's or Norwegian's business model as opposed to Easyjet.

Might want to look at easyJets UK bases outside London!

Is there any particular reason why easyJet Switerzland does not operate out of Zurich. They could have an extensive network similar to Basel and Geneva without the likes of Ryanair around. Although because easyJet hasn't paid Zurich much attention overall, Vueling are increasing their presence.

They used to fly from Zurich. That was from the time they acquired TEA (which became easyJet Switzerland). They cited excesive charges and taxes as the reason for the exit. easyJet then was not serving Zurich until Aer Lingus entered the London Gatwick Zurich route (I may stand corrected) around 2008/9, ops by easyJet UK. A handful of routes have since been added to Zurich by the airline, but not as you say EZS.

This kid gets his post completely wrong - and then comes back well over a week later to edit his post to make it right! Surely this shouldn't be allowed?

More to the point if you apologised for being wrong!
