No, I have not heard much, I expect Turkish will increase Istanbul seeing as they have the slots to do so and I heard maybe a new route (most likely Antalya) but nothing concrete yet, we just have to wait and see if they are announced. What have you heard?

Edit: I forgot to mention there is talk of WestJet being finally announced this week, woud coincide with what I heard from sources. India was mentioned on another forum too...

But said forum claims a new longhaul route will be announced from EDI this week, any guesses from you guys?

Still nothing the rumoured WestJet route, perhaps EDI missed our again as new Halifax to Manchester route just announced. Would have thought they would have announced them both at the same time if it was ever going to happen.

Dublin and other European cities seam to be securing new long haul to Asia.....not much coming this direction with the exception of MAN.

Hate to sound pessimistic are any of the suggested rumours realistic prospects?

As well as ADD, ATL, AUH, BGI, BOS, EWR, HKG, IAH, ISB, JED, LAS, LAX, LHE, MCT, PEK, SIN, YVR. You can't keep looking at it in terms of MAN's win is EDI's loss surely? There's no escape from that rabbit hole.
EDI is punching well above it's weight in some ways, MAN is twice the size and has a much more diverse and international based population, whereas EDI does really well in bringing in the tourists to Scotland whereas GLA does better in taking our own on holiday.

You can though. They only have enough spare capacity to launch one new route - in this case it went to MAN . Although if the business case was there, it will happen eventually, next time they have spare capacity to allocate.

Oh, and good luck serving those destinations with a 737 from Halifax :-P

I would have thought that most people will be impressed by the 10% increase in International passengers in Dec, in spite of a cull by FR of some routes for the winter. Only a few years ago EDI was primarily a domestic airport in winter.

As far as TA flights go, I would have been looking not for new routes but for a longer season on most, and upsizing on the NY flights. Without Norwegian, TA capacity in S19 was much the same as in S18, and load factors/fares were high with much business transiting via Dublin or other hubs to save money.

Other than YYZ-BCN 3pw, I believe the 4x B763s are still without work for S20. I have no idea if anything else is still to come from YYZ, never mind if EDI is even in with a shout, but there is at least still spare capacity if they want to utilise it somewhere AFAIK.

It seems like Aer Lingus will be basing an ATR72 at EDI from Mon-Fri.

Here is the Monday to Thursday schedule (credit to another poster on egph. com

0625 EDI 0755 DUB
0835 DUB 0955 EDI
1025 EDI 1205 ORK
1235 ORK 1410 EDI
1440 EDI 1615 SNN
1655 SNN 1830 EDI

Then on Friday it postions to Cork for the weekend:
EDI-DUB-EDI-ORK-EDI-ORK

Then on Sunday it positions back:
ORK-EDI-DUB-EDI-SNN-EDI

Seems like there is a gap for another flight after 7pm, I wonder if it will be filled?

Also does any other UK airport have a based Aer Lingus plane?

Belfast City has an A320 base, and of course LHR has two nightstoppers.
Technically this is Stobart Air operating for Aer Lingus though.

I don't think it's based, it's just night stopping. ORK based aircraft/crew I suspect, given that's where it heads to Friday eve, and where it comes back from Sunday morn.

Still good news as it offers good business times to Dublin in the morning and good for connections too.

Anyone know why there is another Austrian coming in today alongside the usual Innsbruck charter. The flight is from Bristol on A320 OE-LBN with flight number OS2574.

I believe there's a small rugby game taking place in Edinburgh today. Probably related to that
