Is it possible that the growing pax is because TUI are now offering a range of longhaul holidays from EDI using Qatar?

Doubt that would be the reason.

Qatar are not run like a normal business.
It's partly a huge vanity project.
I know the Middle East well and I can tell you that pride and winning at mine is bigger/better is everything and being seen to lose out to or even worse to be embarrassed by another country especially the ones that have shunned Qatar is not going to happen. It means they will do whatever to appear to stand up to them.
They will keep adding routes (some are just fanciful) and increasing frequencies to take on the likes of Emirates. Whether the routes make money is not always the first consideration.
That said I will take a Qsuite any day over a crappy Emirates Business Class.

Surprising new route. Without wanting to start a political poostorm, I was under the impression that Linate was limited to domestic and EU flights only?

MXP is Malpensa? Aren't these the long running student flights?

don’t think AZ have operated from EDI in recent years. The move from LIN to MXP mid season is due to the planned closure of LIN due to upgrade work.

Quote from EDI Post:

”We are also seeing additional frequency being added to routes such as Doha with Qatar Airways and Istanbul with Turkish Airlines”

Know about the Qatar frequency increase but can’t find anything on the Turkish Airlines increase. Anyone got more details?

I believe TK goes daily in W19 rather than 5 weekly.

Thanks CJ, looks like their W19 schedule reflects this, another positive for EDI through the quieter months.

Seems rather a lot of capacity to the middle east but another good increase for Edinburgh.

Been reported in a Danish newspaper that a new Aalborg to Edinburgh route will be offered by a new start up airline called Great Dane on E195 aircraft, frequency is not mentioned. Seems like a weird route to do but good to see more new services and hope it does well.

The third largest municipality in Denmark, after CPN and Aarhus. And over 200 miles from CPN.
