So Ryanair are returning the capacity that they have taken out. The Ezy deal hasnt yet been signed and must be very secretive as no promises for growth. Finally the Wizzair announcement must have been made in morse code as that hasn't appeared either. At best what is confirmed above may stop the rot but isn't really anything to get excited about. What we dont know is how much family silver the airport has given away to keep Ryanair and Ezy on board. The over reliance on these two carriers means the airport will never have the upperhand. I for one yearn for the day there is news of a tangible new carrier at the airport, not pipe dreams about Transatlantic flights to Canada etc.

I am afraid you have missed my point.

Previous posters on here have harped on about three big announcements for airlines with Liverpool.

All we have had is a confirmation that Ryanair will get capacity back to where it was, that EZY are close to signing a new deal (and not shutting up shop and decamping completely to manchester) and Wizzair are not going to Manchester.

So in summary LPL manages to mainatin the status quo, still completely reliant on two carriers and not really moving forward. i more than anyone would love some tangible new airline and route announcements for LPL but most here seem content with maintaining the status quo.

LIverpool needs to think outside Blue and Orange and supporters of it need to read through the hyperbole spureted out by the local media mafia and concentrate on the facts - No new airlines !!
I yearn to be proved wrong!

Who realistically is going to take a punt on LPL in a difficult market and with two of the largest airlines in Europe already well entrenched, and Manchester with it's extensive network of scheduled airline routes just up the road?

I would have thought a better route to growth would be working to build on what you've already got.

Paphos and Larnaca are both Vantage airports - some of the long awaited group synergy??

Fact..The status quo can be built upon, when the time is right..When people have more spending power..when bringing in a new airline for what are at the moment limited routes, could dissolve the Bread and Butter than FR and Easy provide at Liverpool at the moment.

Time to consolidate and not risk duplication with the airlines that just could get peed off, with all the consequences that could bring.

I would imagine the Cyprus routes are not likely unless operated by a charter airline from over there. Thomson, Thomas Cook, Monarch and Jet2 will probably never serve Liverpool due to them all having very large bases in Manchester and the dependency Liverpool has on Ryanair and EasyJet flights is the highest in the UK, as far as I know, even higher than Stansted (although STN has much more FR than EZY where as LPL is more half and half, but even so, is still not very attractive to any other UK airlines to start a base and is somewhat damaging for a regional airport, more so than a more major one like STN).

EasyJet seem to have a full timetable supporting 7 based aircraft with no further room for a new route to Cyprus and Ryanair have just announced flights from Manchester to Paphos, so very much doubt Liverpool will get that route now.

Yes and some lose routes and frequency...In an ideal world another airline would be good for Liverpool..At the moment an extra a/c from FR or Easy would be better than one from A N other..
Experimental routes like SEN have tried with OLT is fine, but although not that much of a success - They did not tread on Easy's toes.

Jet2 are a brilliant airline, but should then come to Liverpool now with less than ideal economic conditions..That could spell bother for Liverpool if they duplicated FR and Easy routes, which they are capable off.

For example when MON flew AGP from BLK, LS said they where doing the same in 2007, and MON left the airport with some excuse of weak pax numbers..

Looks like East Midlands will be a fair bit bigger than Liverpool next summer and even Leeds/Bradford looks as if it's going to be busier as well!!! Would that be a first or has LBA been bigger than LPL before (in terms of take-offs and landing with passenger traffic)???
