Not if they switch an existing route using Belfast based aircraft (eg Manchester) onto an aircraft based at the other end to free up local based capacity to cover the new route.

MAN for LBA would be a pretty easy straight swap...

Will easyJet be operating the full schedule, as planned for the Winter though? It is anticipated that demand will be weaker than winter 20, so it might be that by reducing frequencies they will manage without adding extra aircraft. I image that domestic travel to GB will recover before demand to the rest of Europe.

Tui seems to have cancelled all holidays from Bfs for S20. They were still on sale last night. Imagine if you were booked on one of the earlier flights to have your holiday cancelled so late in the day. I am sure there would be some booked and hoping to travel.

Does anyone know what the loads are like on the flights operating now out of Bfs? I am just wondering how people are reacting to being able to travel again as the issue of how quickly we are prepared to emerge from this lock down will be critical to so many businesses.

Departures from ROI restart on 19 July, few route cancellations and Aer Lingus more flying than usual but TUI will have one aircraft at DUB instead of two.

Easyjet now has Bfs -Ncl priced at £126.99 on every flight from 1st Sept to the end of the winter timetable, 24th Oct. After that date prices return to normal. I have not checked Ncl - Bfs prices. I know that Ezy is proposing closing the Ncl base at the end of the winter timetable. I wonder what they are planning with this move? Prices are usually changed like this as a preparation for a big change. I have also just checked and it is the same with Stn.

Newcastle base closes end of month.

im guessing it will stop people booking the route until they sort out how the flights are going to be operated and times etc between Belfast and Newcastle for the rest of the summer
