Idly checking the EZY app this afternoon, I see that the flights previously being sold from next weekend have been cancelled. Flights start being available in the app from 01JUL (which is a Wednesday, so that seems like an arbitrary date rather than a considered start date).

BRU - I can't see much enthusiasm for running BRS-BRU as a standalone point-to-point route. When I've used it, the majority of people were connecting on via SN's (reasonably-priced) European route network. Maybe someone will come run it as a codeshare with SN, much as BM did until that fell over? It seems like a very long time until things are sufficiently stable and recovered enough for that to happen.

This route has been discontinued from the end of (whatever is remaining of) S2020

It looks like EZY are reopening at BFS and operating BFS-BRS a couple of times a week from 17JUN. Alongside the FR to DUB, that will be 7 flights a week.

Looking at a few days of the schedule, it appears there's a long (2+ hours) turnaround at BRS.

Will Lufthansa be starting their flights to Bristol or have they shelved them permanently?

Err Lufthansa Group announced 22k redundancies today and a fleet reduction of 100+ aircraft.

unlikely that UK regions will be on the agenda currently, nor that information available From DLH now will be accurate in the medium term...

when I last contacted the airport a few weeks ago they fully expected the airline to start operations at an undefined date.

Wizz Air

Wizz Air are to discontinue their KTW route.

The last flight will be Friday 17 July 2020.

Wizz have been at BRS for around 6 years serving various different routes, with KTW being the last remaining.

Mentioned on Twitter apparently (according to another aviation website message board) along with the axing of some Wizz Air routes to Birmingham, Edinburgh, Doncaster, Luton and Liverpool.

If Katowice has gone it will be for the third time - Ryanair tried it from 2007 to 2009 and from 2011 to 2014, after which Wizz took it on. Loads were always high and in 2019 passenger numbers increased by nearly 18% on 2018 (to over 50,000 at 2/3 times weekly, depending on season) with an A321 replacing the A320, so it must be assumed the yield was the problem.

Ryanair has operated six other Polish routes from BRS year-round for a number of years (Warsaw Modlin, Poznan, Wroclaw, Gdansk, Rzeszow and Krakow - the latter against easyJet). They were operated until the pandemic struck and currently remain in the Ryanair booking engine but no-one can accurately predict the full effects of the post-pandemic fallout at any airport.

Wizz Air Katowice

According to a poster with close links to BRS on another aviation forum Katowice has not been axed. The apparent cancellation of BRS-KTW and a number of other Wizz Air routes to other UK airports was the result of a 'systems failure'.

Aspire Lounge

The Aspire Lounge is taking bookings again from Tuesday 11th August, which I assume corresponds with some expected increase in flight departures.

The current schedule looks like it's being run with 8-9 aircraft (easy, Ryanair, TUI) plus one KL to AMS.

Although Ryanair kept a 4 x weekly Dublin operational thoughout the near ‘shutdown’, and easyJet resumed Belfast International in mid-June, matters only really began to show signs of stirring from the beginning of July and momentum gradually built up through the month. For example:

1 July: 10 departures (5 Ryanair, 4 easyJet, 1 Wizz Air)

4 July: 18 departures (15 Ryanair, 2 easyJet, 1 KLM)

18 July: 26 departures (16 Ryanair, 9 easyJet, 1 KLM)

25 July: 37 departures (17 easyJet, 16 Ryanair, 3 TUI, 1 KLM)

Tomorrow the number of departures is shown as 45 although one is a TUI flight to Palma. Tomorrow's breakdown is:

26 easyJet, 15 Ryanair, 3 TUI 1 KLM

On another message board it is said that easyJet will need a minimum of ten based aircraft to operate tomorrow's programme - 8 x 320, 1 x 321 and 1 x 319. This is still way down on the 18 based aircraft originally planned for this summer.

The same message board says that TUI will have three aircraft based at BRS for what is left of this summer season: 1 x 757 and 2 x 738. The original programme called for six based narrow-bodied aircraft and one based 787 for this summer. Tomorrrow represents just over 40% of the usual number of overall departures this time of year.
