United set to be anouncing some new routes today, Im guessing Edinburgh may get something like a 763 on the Newark and Chicago to go year round, any thoughts?

United upgraded their MAN-EWR flights to a 764 and various other european destinations. If EDI was going to be upgraded then it would've been already anounced.

So far only new long haul routes from San Francisco have been announced on their news releases.

Nothing to doubt here at the moment -it is bookable at twice daily A318 but this is nothing unusual as the AF/KLM group are cutting a lot of UK capacity.

Has KLM ever gone 3 daily on EDI before in winter in recent times? The 6 week period until 16 Feb shows just 3 a day although 2 x 738 and 1 x 739. Glasgow also 3 daily of which one is City Hopper although 3 mainline daily in summer (4 high summer).

As I say not just EDI as AF at MAN is now showing as 3 x A319's (they used to get 320's and 321's) and BHX has the lunchtime downgraded to a HOP 190 but do get the A320 in the morning and A321 in the evening. Also KLM only going to 5 daily at BHX next summer (was 6) but 4 mainline instead of 3 and Manchester is 6 daily with 3 City Hopper at times!!!

Nothing from Easyjet so far, maybe another British announcement soon?

Yes they have Pete. If you look here, you'll see it was only three-daily from early January 2017 to mid-February 2017 although they went from three- to five-daily in mid-February. They followed a similar pattern in the couple of years prior. I don't know how many flights operated during January and February 2018; the CAA data for January and February 2018 shows a broadly similar number of passengers to those months in 2017 so I guess the number of flights may have been similar too.

Cheers although surprised as they have never reduced BHX during the winter season once it starts but I suppose slightly different markets and BHX business routes generally hold up well in winter to Europe. In general the seat reductions are quite small but still significant in one way as over the last few years capacity has increased slowly.

Remember that EDI also has up to three flights every day by Easyjet. The KLM flight must be almost entirely for longhaul connections.

I have just checked the easyjet January schedule and yes quite leisure orientated as you would expect with 3 flights Monday, Friday and Sunday but one Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday. KLM seemed to operate 3 daily last January looking at the CAA punctuality stats which I suppose was all very sensible for the time of year.

InOban you are wrong. In my time working there, Euro connections outnumbered long hauls hugely on the morning and afternoon flights, though there were a fair number of US connections (on Northwest then). Only the evening flights had a few South American connections, plus the rest as locals.

Mind you, EDI connectivity has improved massively since then, but KLM's European reach is humungous.

Sorry, I should have just said connections, I accept that there will be many pax using AMS to reach European destinations still not served directly at a decent frequency.

Fantastic numbers. Wasn’t too long ago that Edinburgh was celebrating passing a million passengers in a month (2013 IIRC.) Within the next year or two we’ll be looking at 1 million+ even in the quietest months.

*WELL* beyond anything the terminal was intended for, not to mention the approach roads. Assuming a proper international new Scottish lowland airport could never be built given the cost of buying and closing GLA/EDI, it will be interesting to see what the terminal will look like by the mid 20s. Great result all the same !

Seems Thai Airways are advertising Edinburgh on their Twitter page.
