KLM return from monday.

Early days, but it also looks like they are increasing frequency this upcoming winter from 3 flights a day to 4, matching the normal summer schedule.

Normally just 3 flights a day in the winter, with the lunchtime flight not operating was it not?. All 737 operated apart from saturdays which see's an E175 on the late afternoon flight?

No, it was definitely 4 flights a day last winter and previous winters. The lunchtime flight (KL960) is normally an Embraer, it’s also normally the first one to be cancelled during disruption.

Sorry, been offline a couple of days. Not sure about the data but my perception, and this is all based on pre-Covid, is that the number of folks going for weekends in Dublin has dropped in recent years. Maybe it's 'cause I'm getting older, I don't know
Personally, I think it is the most overrated city I've been to, but there you go.

Dublin

The pendulum has swung in favour of Dublin - originating traffic. Newcastle is now seen in Ireland as a proper party town, so there a decent two way flows to sustain frequency and capacity on the route.

I doubt the date is an accident, looks as though Ryanair has a heads up that foreign leisure travel is going to be banned until July. The Government line has been that "all will be revealed" in April.

Very good news, especially as it is an unserved destination and Ryanair seemed to be reducing ops at NCL. Let's hope there are more new destinations to come.....even an eventual base now that EZY have left (except for BFS and BRS.
It should do well.

Or as they saying goes "air on the side of caution". They don't want to go full scale operations with new routes such as this before July when many believe that is when the ramp up will happen. I still believe we will be flying from June. If we don't get flying until July don't expect much of a summer season considering the logistical nightmare it will be to get everyone back throughout the whole of the industry.

a nice add to the airport.

Thanks to SeanM1997 for the headsup.
