With credit to a poster on another forum they were 33% and 66% (or 1,516 and 11,523 in absolute terms) respectively. However I understand that the PEK number excludes those who route DUB<>PEK and hitherto they've usually been a little fewer than the number that route EDI<>PEK.

It'll l be a few months before the Irish CSO make their March 2019 data available. The latest data available for DUB<>PEK is from January 2019 which shows 1,356 passengers compared to 1,666 for EDI<>PEK - I understand that equated to 68% of seats occupied that month on the legs to and from PEK.

I'm sure it wasn't forgetfulness, rather time pressure, logistics, collation and staffing. They won't be concerned about whether we can see it 'on time'.

Fair enough. Keeping us happy isn't their prime function.

April '19 passengers up 4.3% but the press release seems to be preparing the ground for, at best, a reduction in the rate of growth noting that "Winning routes is hard but keeping them is even harder. And when you continue to implement the highest aviation tax in the world, you make it even more difficult".

The big hit will be in the June figures, when FR virtually abandon flights to STN. So far there has been the loss of Norwegian and reduced seasons/ flights by Iberia Express and a few others. I would be surprised if there is any growth at all in view of the weak holiday market.

They make a good point though. A promise was made by the SG that has not been kept which makes everyone's life in tourism, air industry etc that little bit harder.

They could just sit and say nothing but that gets you nowhere.

A politician didn't keep a promise? Bless...

By going on about it, surely they're weakening their position as it implies the only way they would get/keep business is a lower tax regime?

Exactly. You have to plan a business based on facts, not try to change the facts to suit your business. In the current climate APD is not going away or being reduced, manifesto or no manifesto. I suspect the next casualty of the green lobby will be LHR RW3.

Keep the pressure on I say. If we want more direct flights to Scotland we have to, then we wont need a third runway at LHR.

It's disappointing that TUI don't offer a longer season of flights to Orlando. There are a huge number of pax that take indirect routings from EDI to Orlando as well as many who use flights from Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester and Birmingham.

Nice to see DL switching to a year round service on JFK-EDI and the start of the new BOS-EDI service today.

The tram takes 35mins & the 100 bus takes 30 mins. Depending what time you arrive at the airport, id Always take the 100. It stops less and is more direct route into town. Also closer to the terminal.
