This keeps quiet about the services being cut back from the end of June, eg at least 6 from EDI.

Not cut, just reduced frequency. The most extreme is SXF, which is cut from 6 to 3/wk from the end of June. Also CPH, NCE, Hamburg, Prague, Alicante - may have missed others. Hamburg is restored for the autumn, but none of the others. I think.

Was hopping for more new routes from Luton...

Considering easyJet has completely cut Copenhagen which was 4x a day. A few weekly services to Rhodes, Stockholm and Biarritz, hardly makes a dent, on the aircraft utilisation that was required to operate Copenhagen.

Good however to see these routes added however.

Come on Giles keep up at the back - what about Nantes, Marseilles and increases on Venice, Naples etc as well as the routes you mentioned will more than make up for the Copenhagen route.

What happened about the 2 strikes? 1 = against fatiguing rosters. 2 = AMS base?

BRS Winter 2017 flights

When are EasyJet's winter flights (November 17) released from Bristol?


The website provides little information.


Thanks.

Granada - Manchester? Why?
Granada - Gatwick instead? Yes please and long overdue to replace the former very successful Monarch route.
For a while GRX lost all its International routes until BA introduced its LCY-GRX route but unless one lives in Essex or London itself LCY to anywhere is a joke...
GRX... smashing little airport, Granada voted most beautiful Spanish City 2016...

Why not Manchester? Manchester too is a great city why should London be the only place in UK and Manchester has a big catchment area that will make the route a success.

And sure, the area around Prestwick is lovely. (Hurts to say)

Doesn't make a market though does it?

Economies of scale, London is much much bigger than Manchester.

My understanding was that the Monarch service was not a success that is why it was dropped.

Manchester is now delivering massive increases with 25M plus so can support many of the routes London can and is proving it with upto 40 new routes starting next year

The Manchester catchment area is huge covering the Midlands right up to The Lakes and as far as Edinburgh and across to and including Yorkshire. That coupled with the very well-healed areas of Cheshire and North Yorkshire make Granada an ideal market for UK city breaks. MAN has grown considerably in recent years with 'niche' routes such as OPO, VRN etc. being an important part of that market. Perhaps take a trip to the North West when you are back in the UK - you might be pleasantly surprised.

AerRyan, yes you are right London is bigger than Manchester. For the reasons given above there is every reason to believe that GRX has the potential to be a very successful route form MAN based on the demographic of MAN catchment area. EasyJet's track record of growth from MAN demonstrates clearly that they know what they are doing with only a couple of routes having been pulled since they started operating from there. EZY do their homework, they wouldn't have started the route unless they had the evidence to know that it will be supported.

MAN-GRX

Delighted with the new EZY MAN-GRX announcement and I'm looking forward to using it. Its great to see passengers having the choice to travel to the wonderful city of Granada from either the north or south of England. EasyJet know what they are doing and based on their track record from MAN I'm sure it will be a success.
