A bit early to be getting worked up, summer schedules are by no means set in stone.

I wouldn't be at all shocked if they are waiting to see if Newcastle Utd stay up or Middlesbrough come up.

Over Winter, the Premier League business they get on the Newcastle route is important in sustaining what is their most marginal route out of Cork.

Had noticed that NCL had disappeared from Winter 18 timetable.

Would be a shame however STK have been guilty of their usual games over the years. As soon as the route appears to look like becoming established, they chop and change the days/times and its back to square one.

Currently operating on days 1--4-6- it isn't particularly helpful for anyone - the previous schedule was much better (think it was 1-3-5-7) and always had a good stag crowd for the weekend flights.

I think STK shot themselves in the foot with the previous schedule in that is was too cheap. These days fares are considerably more expensive and if that combined with the more favourable schedule would see enough for the route to survive. Hard to believe that it wasn't long ago the route operated 3x weekly 733s from NCL as well as competition from RE at LBA and BMI at MME.

It also begs the question that if NCL was to be dropped, then is there really a need for a 3rd based ATR for winter 18? It wouldn't take a great deal to move the EDI/SNN till the afternoon and maybe run the 3rd rotation MANs on a W from DUB. Maybe plans for another ATR to SEN?

Can anyone remember the attempted stroke by the DAA to sell Cork Airport land ? Where was the land located ? I think they land was being sold for industrial use.

I'm not sure exactly where, but the land across 07/25 (beyond the perimeter fence) from the existing business park is zoned for commercial use. There's also a parcel to the east of the end of 17/35 that is zoned for industrial.

Neither fits within what we conventionally think of as the airport boundary, but I know there is some land around the airport that is owned by the airport and rented out to farmers.

By far the biggest stroke was the transfer of the existing business park land from Cork Airport to the DAA in the accounts. It took an asset that was generating about 6 million a year in rental income (the airport only owned a minority stake) off the Cork books making it look much more loss making than it is.

Thatís brilliant news for ORK. Itís exactly the kind of service the airport needs to ensure world-wide connectivity, year-round.

Well done to the team at Cork, Air France and, of course, people of Munster, for supporting the service.

Those high prices must be due to the service selling! Great to have an alternative to EI an FR.

It's good to see a bit of Winter expansion too. In recent years new routes have focused on summer expansion. Between this and the Ryanair Faro announcement, it looks like around 2,000 extra seats available per week over the Winter months.

Norwegian to suspend Providence for the Winter this year. Hopefully it is just a suspension. Ironically itís on the same day Aer Lingus decides to suspend Shannon-Boston from January to March next year. Youíd wonder if the loss of one could have saved the other.

Market was fairly different to be honest. Keep in mind SNN-PVD may also be in threat for the winter.

True. The Norwegian thread doesnít make nice reading at the moment. There could be a lot of suspensions.

Agreed. It seemed as if both Norwegian and their avid supporters completely ignored that there was any underlying issues in the company. The company seems to have taken a Celtic tiger type approach to the issue, throw money they don't have at the massive sinkhole.

Some good news announced by Aer Lingus:Lisbon returning twice weekly year round in addition to an additional Tenerife rotation, growth of 25,000 seats over winter 2018, should balance the loss of Norwegian

In Winter, they should be able to get in 2x weekly Lisbon by getting extra utilization out of the current aircraft.

I can't see how it can be done in the Summer, without either cutting frequency on an existing route or operating one of the existing routes as a W.

Final route figures for 2017. I've excluded any destination that didn't get at least 500 passengers across 2016 and 2017, and any route that didn't get 100 passengers in 2017 as these are largely private movements or one-off charters for soccer/rugby matches [although Farnborough surviced even with this restriction] and the data is just unreadable if they are all left in.

Changes in the top 10 are that Malaga has overtaken Gatwick, even though Gatwick had reasonable growth, and that Birmingham has come into the top 10 at the expense of Liverpool

In general
  • London is steady. Although all London Airports show slight growth, it's almost equal to the number lost on the cancellation of the London City Route
  • UK Regional performs strongly, except Liverpool (notably the only Ryanair UK regional route). Surprising considering the general noise about them
  • Sun Routes perform very strongly
  • Other European routes are a mixed bag, with good performance for Zurich, Madrid, Rennes, Bergamo, but flat to poor performance for others.

Good to see more capacity at Cork for the winter. Where has the extra capacity come from for the three new winter routes? FAO, LIS and MUC are all additions for the winter.

FAO is Ryanair and seems to be served by a non-Cork-based aircraft.

Aer Lingus Aircraft havenít been fully utilized November to February, but itís not clear what happens from March onward for Lisbon
