Preliminary EI S19

MAIN CHANGES

CORK ORK
Alicante ALC Increase from 3 to 4 per week
Amsterdam AMS Unchanged - 10 per week
Barcelona BCN Increase from 4 to 5 per week over longer period
Faro FAO Unchanged - 10 per week
Lanzarote ACE Increase from 2 to 3 per week
Lisbon LIS New Route for S19 - 2 weekly
London Heathrow LHR Unchanged - 31 per week
Malaga AGP Unchanged - 9 per week
Palma Majorca PMI Increase from 3 to 4 per week
Paris CDG Unchanged - 7 per week

Not yet on-sale which will more than likely take the Wed/Sun gap from A/C 001 is Dusseldorf. I would suspect LPA will continue and that Saturday times for ACE will be altered to allow for LPA/ACE on Saturdays.
This leaves scope for a new route on Wednesdays and Saturdays for A/C 002 coupled with increases on 4 routes (+ 4 weekly flights). Further changes remain highly possible. Aircraft gaps highlighted.

LX, AF, IB, DY, FR, EI, V7 - daa have really turned the screws on Shannon.
SNN routes were the last on sale last year too. Not quite getting the highlighted point, 30% growth since seperation.

The bulk of Shannon’s growth was in the two years post separation, while growth in recent years has been weak compared to DAA airports.

The DAA has a fine line to tread with Cork. Too little growth and there will be calls for separation. Too much growth and It will be said that Cork could stand alone. Of course, it also depends on the attitude of the DAA. Is Cork perceived as a financial drain that they would happily lose or is it a defensive asset that allows them to keep Shannon in check?

So far it looks like the second based unit is kept very busy and there is a lot of non-based flying. Overall its still 2 full-time aircraft and 1 peak aircraft, but with more away based flying - so the growth is more impressive than it looks. Thursday and Sunday will be particularly busy days.
Non-Based
BUD x 2/2,
FAO x 4/4,
MLA x 2/2,
Poznan x 2/2,
Alicante 1/2,
Lanzarote 1/4,
Malaga 2/4,
Liverpool x 3/4
LTN x 7/7
July/August 3rd Aircraft
BGY and NAP are timed for an ORK based aircraft
Non Bookable
Reus, Gerona, Carcassonne, Bordeaux or La Rochelle.
Santander is in the drop-down list, but not bookable.

Presumably some/all of these will also be operated by the peak 3rd based unit along with frequency adjustments, depending on bookings and maybe even a few more new routes, fingers crossed.

As has been said before, SDR was supposed to be a sport charter but Ireland never won the game.

In recent days both Edinburgh and Belfast have lost their Norwegian routes to the US/Canada. In contrast ORK has maintained and DUB/SNN have grown. I wonder what’s different at the ROI airports? Tax can’t be the whole story - there’s no APD from Northern Ireland. Maybe Norwegian don’t want to give ground against IAG?

Fair enough. It would certainly be one of the more “random” routes - but you never know!

At the moment, there's no guarantee that Norwegian Air International will be able to fly transatlantic from Belfast or Edinburgh after March 29th. That could be a factor.

Its possible, but Gatwick flights remain on-sale.

Norwegain, itself, is registered in Norway so dot directly affected by Brexit. Norwegain has a series of Airlines, registered in the U.K., Ireland, Argentina and elsewhere. Brexit might play in, but not majorly.

Anyone know when we can expect the EI announcement that was mentioned a couple of weeks ago or if there is still one?

Swiss to ZRH goes from strength to strength, up to 4 per week next Summer operating on Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun (3pw in S18). All planned to be operated by the larger Airbus A220-300 configured with 145 seats. Service returns much earlier than expected from 31/03/19.

This is excellent news, the gentle toe-in-the-water has worked very well. I think the 31/03 is the start of the IATA summer timetable, so although seasonal it looks like ZRH could run for the entire summer? This is an excellent result for Cork, SWISS and the A220. I really feel the A220 has a lot to offer from smaller European airports (<5 million passengers a year) like Cork. Partly for building connections to Hub airports, but also for the likes of Volotea, who fly some random routes - like ORK-VRN. More of this please!

Not so long ago I used to dread seeing the Cork thread, "I wonder whats been stopped now". The disaster that was LCY, the (unfounded, Im sure) gossip in the region about the viability of the airport, pleas for Ryanair to re-open the old terminal, all sorts of madness. I'm glad to see the trend has changed.

One small note of caution on that is that up to 08 May, the services are showing as very expensive compared to the rest of the Summer.

From Swiss's previous, this suggests that it is their current planning, but not 100% confirmed.

Also flights are on a very different schedule from March to the start of May, with a very early departure from Zurich and a 08:45 departure back to Zurich and on Sundays's only, reverting to it's normal lunchtime scheduling for the main part of Summer. Those timings preclude connections as there are no scheduled arrivals in ZRH between 23:00 and 06:00, so if they are operating that, they would want to have sold significant seats to a tour operator (which I believe they do for the summer programme).

Anyone know what sort of delays to expect tomorrow ? We're off to Bristol at 11.05am tomorrow, but with expected winds at about 90kph at 10am, that's probably not going to happen ! Am i right in thinking that the ATR is supposed to go to BHX first, and back ? Would Aer Lingus cancel flights ?

I don't think those gusts are forecast for Cork at 10am. That is more of a risk for the North-West of Ireland. The worst of the storm in Cork should have passed in the early hours of the morning.

Looking at the forecast and the arrivals/departures board, the biggest risk would seem to be to the 00:45 arrival from Malaga, which would leave the aircraft out of position for the morning.

Some of the early morning departures may be a bit delayed, but they should get away.

The good news is that the wind should be coming from the due South, so there shouldn't be a crosswind component to worry about.

Thanks 840, that's reassuring ! (Though maybe not for the Malaga flight !)

Sometimes RE do use the shorter runway, its not common but I have landed on 25 twice, but it does provide an extra option if conditions necessitate and allow. I think EI did occasionally use it for the 737-500s back in the day.
