Nice. That brings FR routes to Poland to 4 from Cork: Gdansk, Katowice, Poznan & Wroclaw. I think at the peak of services to the region Wizz offered Gdansk, Poznan, Katowice, Warsaw and Wroclaw in Poland and Vilnius in Lithuania. Still some way to go to get back to that peak, but maybe with time.

Looks like we might get a new ‘airline’ too. FRs Polish operations are to be rebranded as BUZZ.

Quite impressive growth at Cork, for the soon to be second largest english speaking city in the EU!

Embarrassing if they’re going to use this as a marketing spin

Sat 16th March

Hi there,

Anyone know why the 06:40 Ryanair departure to Stansted was delayed on Saturday morning (16th March)? The Aer Lingus/Aer Lingus Regional departures looked to go either ontime or with minor delays.

The 737 is a little less tolerant of crosswinds at takeoff than the A320.

The Aer Lingus Regional ATRs can opt to use 07/25 to takeoff to reduce crosswind component.

It seems that AF/KL might be rooting passengers through CDG rather than AMS - makes sense to fly people on AF metal, rather than an EI codeshare.

PVD seems to be doing well, but the future there is uncertain, are passengers still being offered a bus transfer to Dublin?

EI offered fewer AMS rotations last year, so that is the major cause of the drop in figures (in fact available rotations was the largest driver on every route). It's probably more that IAG would prefer passengers to route through LHR. The fare war in Dublin between EI, KL and FR is probably not helping either.

Regardless of what happens, PVD will be down this year, because it didn't operate January to March, while it only missed November and December last year. Also April's passengers will get flown out of Dublin for the time being. I think the expectation is that passengers will be bussed until late April at least.

It looks like AF is gone for the winter.
