Leeds to Geneva

From the Leeds thread.

Easyjet to run a 5 x weekly service from 17/12/10-24/4/11.

Do you think this is the foot in the door for Easyjet at Leeds,or purely a one off?

Could it be that a number of the Doncaster passengers origionated in the Leeds area? I know its a long shot but perhaps they are trying to get a foot in the door.

Highly unlikely, though if this is the case then it's more likely to attract those in the Durham Tees Valley catchment area as this is where the highest amount of PAX seem to come from on the EZY flights at DSA, despite LBA only currently having GVA and NCL probably closer to most.

That is interesting. I would have thought Sheffield were to be the biggest supply of EZY users? I suppose thats a topic for another thread. I wonder why they decided to try a route from LBA when they must have spent quite a considerable amount on setting up an operation at DSA?

Commitment to Yorkshire...

Fail to understand EZY's logic that after running services for less than a year and declaring failure at Doncaster, they now think a one route operation from Leeds is the way forward when Jet2 have been operating the route for years. Hardly shows commitment to Yorkshire and one can only guess how long this one will last. Very strange!

Im lead to believe Jet2 have scaled back their GVA services from LBA this year, so i suppose it just fills in the gaop if that is the case. Clearly DSA failed to provide the required results, but it seems Easyjet may want to hold on to some presence in Yorkshire, particularly now EMA and DSA are not served by them. Makes sense strategically i guess, and LBA is still well underserved in relation to its catchment area.

LBA-GVA

Could EZYs move on this route be a tit for tat reaction to LS moving in on the EZY route from NCL?

"New EZY base at LBA"

Listen guys.... Easyjet fly numerous destinations such as TFS, BRU, SOF, ATH, NCE etc etc and none of them are bases. Why would the launch of GVA-LBA mean that LBA will likely become a base? It is simply an EZY base (GVA) linking with LBA.

No one has mentioned LBA becoming a base.

Since the LBA flights are to GVA, they may well be operated by easyJet Switzerland, a franchisee. Possibly a separate route planning department (someone in the know can confirm this), but importantly, aircraft based in GVA.

Nobody has mentioned LBA as a base other than easyflyer83, and It's got to be an Easy Swiss aircraft or less likely a 'W' from another base.

I think we all know what was insinuated by "a foot in the door".
Other than at LGW most GVA flights are operated by UK bases.

It could well develop into something in the future, but you are correct, GVA will be operated by a GVA based aircraft.
