Technically Billund is a resumption - it operated for several summers in the past. And Luxembourg replaces Hahn.
At least one route - Szczecin - doesn't have days/dates in the calendar, or it didn't an hour ago!
I gather there will be nine based a/c next summer.

Well with the new routes begining to come in now for next summer and there is a few rumours out there does anyone have any ideas about new routes for next summer?

I have heard a rumour about:
Westjet to Toronto
Emirates are doing something major in January to do with there UK operations
Easyjet to announce a few more routes with an extra based aircraft.

All of this is just rumours but its fun to guess.

Iíd bet my money EK announcing one of the Glasgow flights to an A380. Doubt they will change anything in Edinburgh.

That'd be my guess considering the work being done to the EK gate at GLA

True the A380 Glasgow rumours has been brought up many times and proved false but who knows maybe this time it will happen as was said it is just all rumours until confirmed.

I was the one to find and send the copy of the planning permission for the GLA A380 gate to the GLA thread, so i'm pretty sure I can believe it.

Air China have been trying to launch MAN for a while but it seems to be continually delayed for many reasons. I canít see EDI jumping ahead of MAN, especially when thereís so little room left at Shanghai.

The China link was originally going to be PVG but with China Eastern, it's not inconceivable that they are still looking at the route.

Just curious as to why so certain. 😊
Is it because Beijing already covered with sufficient capacity and Hong Kong not enough demand....or other reasons?

EY is a bit of a mixed bag on this route with fluctuating frequencies and loads.
What type of Aircraft is on this Route is it a 777?

Where have you been? The route ended at the end of September and was replaced by Emirates.

Air China donít fly to anywhere in Europe from Hong Kong. I donít see it as being totally unlikely that air China would serve Beijing, itís their main hub and theyíd hopefully offer a more regular and convenient service than hainan. I donít think weíll see air China anytime soon though, I think itís more likely weíll see Cathay Pacific, especially since theyíre doing very well at Dublin.

Hong Kong would be served by Cathay most likely on the A350-900 but the demand is there should they want to try the route, China Eastern to Shanghai is another route that could work but we need to wait and see if the Hainan route works first seeing as its still scheduled as 2x weekly next summer.

Be nice, not everyone has their focus so much on aviation! Some of my friends even have wives and girlfriends.....

It took MAN years to get Cathay back, their European presence is tiny, DUS being recently dropped but DUB added to MAN, LGW and 5 daily LHR. EDI would be interesting but given Hainan have not set the world on fire with the toe in the water route, and it’s highly seasonal and Y focussed, particularly geared towards Chinese POS, not sure CX would be looking too closely at EDI. Unserved market it may be but does it have the year round business traffic DUB has? And unlike DUB, the market fragments GLA vs. EDI on critical mass.

Of course I said DL wouldn’t launch BOS-EDI so expect an imminent press release from Swire......

We read 'elsewhere' of glowing reports on HA load factors? Is that not the case... ?

I would like to believe between the banking, insurance, IT and Invesment sectors in central Scotland their would be the year round business traffic to HK.
Good point on market fragmentation however diluting the critical mass. Another factor will be competitive fairs buy EK and QR for the one stop connection, however this has not put them off for MAN.

Heard any more on the WestJet rumour anyone?
