I live closest to BHX so I`m happy to see the amount of expansion easyJet has - FINALLY - announced at BHX...

Birmingham to Jersey
&
Birmingham to Newquay

Which bases will be operating those flights?... Will it be a W route from another base?........

They used to operate LPL-NQY which was popular, not sure BOH has the same draw but it may for this year. They have left it rather late however.

Apart from the obvious pressure from BRS, cannot understand why EZY have not looked at EDI-CWL-EDI as it was the most popular CWL route with Flybe with 3 flights a day. Loganair are due to start in August but only 5 times a week.

Iíd have thought this would offer more passengers than some of the domestic routes announced recently

Was EDI-CWL primarily business or leisure pax ? If you strip out maybe 50% of business pax, how many people are left on a weekday ?

Blamed on Sturgeon’s travel ban to/from parts of Greater Manchester and Lancashire allegedly.

RYR will outfly EZY by a factor of 4 to the new green list resorts.

Possibly the "new" EZY domestics looking a little silly now?

Plenty of people still not willing to risk it with Hancock and Shapps constantly changing the rules and there’s a good chance the destinations also change their rules (like Malta did).

I don't think it needed a change in the Green list to achieve that. I'm still amazed that Liverpool-Bournemouth made it off the route planning dartboard into real life.

Maybe quit bashing airlines doing an almost impossible job, whilst reducing cash burn. The commercial department at ezy know what theyíre doing and know where demand is/ or isnít.

Alot of the new UK routes are being launched to support the crew training plan. Bringing back those who havenít operated in months, and trying to keep everyone else legally current. So itís not all about routes being highly profitable but ensuring the airline is ready to react and expand the flying as and when they can. Thatís impossible with such few flights being operated so adding UK domestic sectors makes logical sense.

RYR have been ensuring they are ready to react for many months with continual daily base training at STN keeping crews & the aeroplanes valid.

No requirement then on behalf of RYR to launch new UK routes to support crew training...just straight to service.

Do the commercial department at EZY know what they`re doing and know where the demand is/or isn`t?...debatable...will have to wait & see which decisions have produced for the airlines.

PS...Not bashing airlines just pointing out the blindingly obvious & the markedly different approaches perhaps.

Appears the airline is being wrong footed by Mr L attempting "political" moves in flying short domestic bucket & spade trying to embarrass HMG over their stated green credentials.

You keep stating that EasyJet is trying to be political and embarrass the Gov but what evidence do you have for that? They are just opening routes which can actually be flown by pax given all the restrictions. The Gov isn’t embarrassed by some short haul flights. Boris flew to Cornwall for the G7. He couldn’t care less what EasyJet does (hence the limited support). Is BA also trying to embarrass the Gov launching flights from Belfast or Southampton to UK destinations?

errrrr...perhaps the evidence was the media attention & headlines generated with the announcements pretty much condemning very short mainland bucket/spade.

Nothing embarrasses this Government & leader all too evidently which is perhaps why Mr L has wrong footed his airline in launching or proposing those services.

It looks apparent he has been on his own independent political manoeuvres.

If the reasoning only is to work up the crews & aeroplanes then see the RYR example for instance which appear will leave EZY floundering somewhat too.

Just because the media ran those headlines does not mean it was EasyJet’s doing. Plenty of carriers have different approaches. EasyJet trying new domestic routes, Jet2 just not operating and Ryanair trying every route going.

I think you’re over egging it a bit if you think the CEO of EasyJet is trying to bring down the most shameless Gov in recent memory through embarrassment...

Gross exaggeration to suggest embarrassment will bring down a Government of course.

Different approaches by airlines indeed...merely suggesting the EZY position is to be proven too.

After recent ‘revelations’, shall we say, the Government is doing a perfectly good job of that on its own. 🤦🏻‍♂️

easyJet has traditionally had a policy of <4 hours over land, it doesnít operate. EDI was perhaps border line but ABZ and BOH (ex LPL) are over that threshold be it by rail or road. Plus these routes are at a relatively low frequency, with relatively height capacity aircraft and in fact I think the LPL-BOH is only twice a week and explicitly targeted at the staycation market.

As other have said, airlines have to reduced cash burn and keep crews in check. Operating revenue generating flights is the optimal execution of that in the current circumstances.

EZYís programme in general seems to have been parred back considerably, particularly when compared to FR. Iím not convinced that FR have been filling MAN-CHQ twice a week so banging on about environmental credentials is a bit ingenious.
