EDINBURGH - 2

Starting New Thread After Old One Was Closed.

Anyone think that Jet2 / Ryanair might expand more at the airport any time soon?

I think Jet2 will continue to expand at Glasgow rather than EDI, and I believe Ryanair are dropping 3 or 4 routes in S14 (Fuerteventura and some others IIRC).

Jet2 have added a weekly flight to Reus from EDI for summer 14.

Not really Jet2 expansion, rather cutting back on some routes and adding new ones in their place.

GLA will be the big player north of the border for S14 onwards

Verona is only about an hour by train from Venice, similar to Milan in the other direction.

Much more to do with a rather large and traditional lake resort "Garda"
Just a few miles away.

Is it just me, or has this thread got boring? And what happened on the original EDI thread that was so bad it had to be closed? I posted that I thought it would be interesting to see how the competition between Qatar and TK at EDI and EK at GLA worked out in what is a limited market (a reasonable post I would have thought) and the whole thread gets shut down!

The moving annual total for the 12 months ending November 2013 was 9,713,846 passengers.
If ratified by the CAA this would set a new Scottish Airport passenger record?

EDI now UK's #5 Busiest Airport

CAA provisional data for November indicates that Edinburgh Airport has moved up one place in the UK 12-month passenger league to number 5 after overtaking Luton.

The figures are subject to confirmation by the CAA.

EDI is now 38,417 ahead of LTN based on the latest 12-month count

A lot of folk poured scorn on my opinions that BA would operate International
flights from EDI, this could be an advance of even more to come.

This is a good for BA, earning money when the A320 would otherwise we be sitting on the ground doing nothing.

Are the BA flights to IBZ simply holiday charters for someone as opposed to BA scheduled. Limited season and night flights would indicate as such. They did similar (or Cityflyer did) from GLA to FAO during some summer seasons
