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.

Anyone know if there will be any expansion this year, also will Loganair be adding extra capacity as they have the aircraft from the BMI shut down?

I don’t think we will see any additional capacity this summer from EDI. They are only planning to add around half of the aircraft operated by BM to there fleet.

LM are currently offering ex BM flight and cabin crew the chance to apply for positions LM’s existing bases at Aberdeen, Glasgow, Inverness and Norwich. They are also advertising for crew for new bases at Bristol, Chester, East Midlands, Newcastle and Londonderry

https://www.loganair.co.uk/recruitment-drive/

I am guessing that the recruitment of crew to be based at BRS and CEG means that LM are expecting to take over the Airbus corporate shuttle. They must also be confident that they are going to be awarded the LDY PSO since they are recruiting for a base in LDY.

Personally I think you will only see LM add 1 additional ER3 and 8 ER4’s to the fleet over the coming weeks. Taking the total to 11. With LM basing 2 ER3’s at NWI, 2 ER4’s at ABZ and 1 ER4 at BRS, CEG, EMA, GLA, INV, LDY and NCL.

Actually did the day trip yesterday EDI-CWL. Pretty full going down 50% load on way back up. On another note - why is there no Gate 8 at EDI? There’s a 7 and next to it 9 but no 8. Just curious

Great question...I have always wondered this too.

Plus what construction work is going on at Gate 8 (Stand7) at the moment...anyone got an inside track on this??

Lots of internal work going on when I passed through on Monday. Excited to see what is coming....

The new No1 lounge is nice, although I don’t think it’s bigger then the old one, but does have its own toilets! I wonder if there is room up there for another lounge?
