I looked through the schedules and it seems Jet2 have added an extra weekly flight to Dalaman and Antalya both will go from 3x to 4x weekly.

So basically ending a commercially unsustainable route against Ryanair 1x daily and Wizzair 5x weekly and adding flights to pick up the slack at key areas and old Thomas Cook destinations. A good business move as they would have lost money on the Budapest route.

Passenger numbers are up 1% on the same month last year, but down from growth of 5.8% in September 2018.
Do they think that 5.8% growth every year is either realistic or sustainable?

Any form of growth at this stage is good news, at a time when a lot of airports are either flatlining or declining.

I would be surprised if the October figures show any growth, and after that it will be negative, with Ryanair in particular dropping several routes for the winter (although their warfare with Wizz over eastern Europe will be interesting)

I think next summer will see an increase again, as there is a few new routes scheduled and barely any decreases as of yet, although I expect some more big changes before S20 is finalised.

Perhaps the 1% increase would have been slightly more had it not been for the BA strike as the figures show a fall in domestic traffic.

The fall in domestic numbers is mainly due to the dropping of the Ryanair service to STN.

Edelweiss is to increase its Edinburgh Zurich route from 2x weekly to 1x daily in S20, extra flights should be on sale soon.

Airlines Website currently shows 4 per week in high summer. Is this already an increase on S19? Would be great if it went to daily 😊

It was five-weekly during July to September S19, which is when it was at its most frequent. The airline's website currently still shows only five-weekly during the same months in S20. Remains to be seen if the mooted increase to daily will be limited to those same months in S20.

AIRC, in W18 it continued throughout, 1/wk on a Sunday, presumably looking for the ski market, but this year it's suspended after the New Year for several weeks.

Tui add an extra weekly flight to Dalaman, taking it from 2x to 3x weekly, this will be on a 3rd party airline and away based.

All gone a bit quiet, any potential new routes on the horizon?

If not still looking like there will be an increase in passengers next year.

Also new £20 million taxi rank is due to be built for next summer, replacing the old taxi rank.: https://www-edinburghnews-scotsman-c...nounced-818850

You posted just yesterday to tell us about a new Dalaman flight. I don't think we can expect new services to be announced on a daily basis.

I already have, Nothing major in terms of changes there will be less seats available this winter than last!

Also noteworthy but not major is Flybe will be basing a wet leased E190 at Edinburgh this winter to fly the London City route and help free up some other frames, they are also recruiting staff for EDI next summer.

i thought Flybe we’re trying to get rid of their jet fleet??

Also how will there be less seats to Dalaman when there is an additional flight?

I meant after reading the slots report the total number of seats available is less than last winter.

Presumably the loss of FR routes - STN and, seasonally, several other routes - exceeds some increases elsewhere.
