Easyjet open FCO-BIO 3x week from november. I hope will open also MXP-BIO.

The new MXP-LYS is operated by LYS base plane. MXP-TLS is a replacement route of MXP-SOF so the true new MXP winter routes i believe will be announced soon. I hope in a new route to Canary Island.

What is the source of this news? Any rumors about these possible new routes?

Above are mentioned some new routes ex MAN (possibly AMS, HAM,...).
From Paris there are rumors, too. (e.g. MUC, SAW,...).

From an internal source.

SAW from MAN has apparently been put back to early next year.

Any routes outside the European Union by easyJet except those from the UK and Switzerland will be hard to come by. This is because the aircraft usually has to be registered in one of the countries that the aircraft is operating to / from. This would mean unless Turkey becomes part of the EU I cant see a route from Paris to SAW etc happening?

easyJet's aircraft are under the United Kingdom register G- with a small fleet under the easyJet Swiss brand under the register HB- .

Not quite right - EU press notice dated 25/03/2010

EU and Turkey initial civil aviation agreement

The European Union and the Turkish authorities have today initialled an aviation agreement which will remove nationality restrictions in the bilateral air services agreements between EU Member States and Turkey. This agreement will allow any EU airline to operate flights between any EU Member State and Turkey, where a bilateral agreement with Turkey exists and traffic rights are available.

This so-called "horizontal'" aviation agreement does not replace the bilateral agreements in place between EU Member States and Turkey, but adapts them to bring them into line with EU law. Currently, there are 42 such horizontal agreements between the EU and 50 countries worldwide. More than 800 bilateral air services agreements have already been modified by the joint efforts of the European Commission and EU Member States to replace nationality rules with the principle of EU airline designation.

The agreement is an important step towards further strengthening EU–Turkey aviation relations and will encourage traffic between the EU and Turkey. Air transport is crucial for relations between the EU and Turkey, linking people, cultures and businesses. Turkey is one of the key aviation partners of the EU. Passenger traffic between the EU and Turkey reached more than 25 million in 2008, making Turkey the third largest external aviation market for the EU in number of passengers, after the United States and Switzerland.

The agreement will open the way for further cooperation between the EU and Turkey in civil aviation including in the areas of aviation safety, security, air traffic management, technology, research and industrial cooperation, consumer and environmental protection, and competition.

Easyjet go slow?

Last night at LGW I was told that Easy jet had been canceling flights due to the crews (flight deck & cabin) working to rule.

Any truth to this ?

There have been rumours of some significant shortages of crews. Perhaps those they do have can't (or are not willing to) put in any extra hours.

Or more to the point, those of us who are left have been worked into the ground and physically can't take any more!!
easyJet have really messed up the crew situation at the moment, most crew's have been/are willing to put the extra time in but there is only so much that we can do!!!!

Don't know if this is the right forum to post about but I am looking for some sort of data to document that for some reason EZY is recently canceling way more flights than the industry average (we - as a company - have been particularly hit over the past two weeks with a dozen of last minute cancellations reportedly due to "extraordinary circumstances").

Is there any publicly available database tracking such events ?

Regards

The new rules is not an opensky so probably there is not free traffic rights between UK and Turkey.

Given that EZY has gone through massive expansion it's surprising to hear this towards the latter part of their expansion. I know some crew have been heading towards the Middle East but not many. I suspect the truth is somewhere between the 2009 financial crisis and unrealistic Management bonus targets perhaps?

I think you could make a request to the CAA under The Freedom Of Information Act.

It's nothing really to do with over expansion but a mis-calculation of crewing numbers that stems from various actions over the last year.

Just had a friend call me and say that their flight's been cancelled from Edinburgh. Is this likely to be as a result of the crew shortages? If so, are they entitled to the cancellation compensation under Regulation 261/2004 EU? It wouldn't appear to qualify under any of the specified exceptions; easyjet being responsible for having enough people in the right place.

They've been re-booked to fly from Glasgow later this afternoon but have to get there under their own steam (2 buses and an expensive train). Can they be reimbursed if they keep receipts?

This whole crewing issue must be costing them a fortune, and on top of the drama earlier in the year...

AFAIK there is open skies between the UK and Turkey, or at least there are few restrictions. Airlines including Easyjet have added many new UK-Turkey scheduled flights in recent years

As for that new EU-Turkey agreement, the way I read is that Easyjet for example could operate between Germany and Turkey so long as the Germany-Turkey bilateral is either open skies or has spare frequencies. Same for Air Berlin if they wanted to fly UK-Turkey for example
