I would be very surprised if in 6 months you have even half that amount of flights.

This is a member waving contest between the two airlines involved.

Though some of them are timed as new connections.
But yes, it was never anywhere near full with the existing flights, so the landscape will be different in 6 months.
Meanwhile an hourly river boat connection from GLA to city centre planned from next year - nice as it sounds, would like to see all the cases, golf bags, baby buggies and duty free getting loaded on the planned 10 seater. Nice idea, yes? Practical with longevity, probably not.

An hourly river boat from GLA to the City Centre? Are you having a laugh? Would love to see the link where this is promoted.

This is failed from the start, they will be going up against First Bus (Service 500) and the Stagecoach (X24) both with multiple services per hour.

It may only take 25 mins by boat from city centre to airport, however add a further hour to recover from the effects of passing the Shieldhall sewage plant. Simply horrific....

Its not marketted as the main method and is a novelty route as they freely admit. With 10 seats it potentially wont be difficult to fill if marketted in a fun and novel way

Glasgow breaks million pax in August. 7% increase on 2016. Growth again for DXB and transatlantic flights.

These press releases are increasingly spin. They list several sections which have grown very healthily, but then the overall growth is much less, so presumably other parts are growing very slowly if it all. ? Domestic ? Inclusive tour? It would be interesting to know.

Domestic flights are stagnant at both Edinburgh & Glasgow.

Domestic CAA Stats

EDI Jul 2016 470456
Jul 2017 476250 1% growth

GLA Jul 2016 382952
Jul 2017 381239 >1% decline

So a 10% increase in Intl pax equates to less total increase when combined totals are added to together. I.e. 50,000 increase of 500000 = 550000 a 10% increase of international pax. So if a domestic total which is stagnant is added say 500,000 for 2016 & 2017. The new 1,050,000 or 5% increase overall in 2017 from 2016.

Domestic is stagnant due to increase rail on West & East Coast Mainline.

The last time I checked GLA and EDI were two different airports.

Just saying.

Both airports are obviously separate but both released figures showing very good results I.e 16% growth on some international routes. This was questioned as spin about Glasgow i.e. if they were losing lots of pax on other routes as overall growth was around 7-8%. I explained is they're both managing to retain their domestic figures (with extremely keen competition from WCML & ECML) but this lowers the gains from Intl traffic so overall the % increase is lower. Both airports show good intl results and stagnant domestic so it was a good comparison.

My original post wasn't really about comparing GLA and EDI. I was wondering whether the growth of scheduled and hybrid (Jet2) services was beginning to impact on TUI and TCX who provide IT flights. I noticed in another airport thread that some IT rotations were being cut next year. EDI doesn't separate IT data (all TOM/TUI). GLA does, that's all.

I understand that, all I was saying was both have a very similar stats huge increases in Intl % but lower overall %. The rumours are that Jet2, FR & U2 have caught the big two charter companies out over pricing. Also the Spanish resorts had a of lot seats dumped into the market. The metal for those seats is getting moved back to Turkey & North Africa as people forget and the fall of the against the €.

Glasgow Airport Investment Area - Renfrewshire Website

Do they have tenants for the hangars lined up or is this an aspirational piece? Be a shame if the road is rerouted, it's great for photos since they cut all the trees down.

Will these various road reroutings, new bridge etc enable the displaced threshold on 25 to be removed and thus increase LDA?
