Yes there's certainly no profit being made, even buy one get on free I've seen advertised. Vueling really haven't done a huge lot of advertising which was the same last time, although I suspect in the case of both airlines there's support from Stormont at play, and FR made it clear they expect passengers to come up from the south, whether or not that becomes a reality will be seen.

Very good numbers on the first EMA flight on friday. About 165 in , 150 out. Not bad at all for a first day! Hopefully be a good route for easyjet.

Well if that is how tax payers money is being used, to support duplicate routes from Stormont's favourite airport, what a waste.

I read how airlines have experienced a 400% increase in bookings sine the changes last week. I have been keeping an eye on Ezy fares to Pmi, they have hardly moved since then. 27th July is £22.99. Jet2 also has some very keen fares. So has there really been a big rush, or is it just Belfast that isn't responding?

As a travel agency owner here, I can tell you that there has been no big rush ... a trickling of bookings, but nothing major. My colleagues in Britain are reporting the same, although slightly better than here. There is appetite to travel based on the number of enquiries, however once you explain the testing requirements to people it soon turns them off. How long the airlines are going to keep sending 75%+ empty aircraft around Europe is anyones guess

I completely agree, and exactly what we’re seeing. The only people who seem to be going anywhere are people getting to second homes or going to see relatives.

Excellent news. Still think they need do have daily flights and maybe double daily on LBA Mon and Fridays.

Will they be running flights to EMA and LBA in winter 21/22?

All Easyjet flights from BFS to Lyon have been cancelled for Jan 2022 - height of ski season - does anyone know why?

Bit frustrating as cannot be changed to the nearest alternative, Geneva, for free as it is in another country.

easyJet - Winter 21/22

Looks like extra flights on sale to route like ALC, AGP, IOM, FAO and more for Winter 2021/22.

I'd heard all three were doing OK. Although BOH might be a summer route rather than year-round, I can't understand why they may be holding back on putting winter services on BFS-EMA and BFS-LBA on sale as the loads seem to have been pretty good - certainly better than some.

BFS apparently remains poorly run.
I departed it Thursday 12th August to AGP.
Security didn't open until 0350 despite a crowd waiting.
The roof at entrance to security (after Boarding Pass scan) still leaks! How many years is that going on?
The place was filthy despite my being only the fifth to enter. The tables in the cafe overlooking the apron were uncleaned obviously from, at least, the previous day! The full height glazing there and beside JD Sports was also filthy.
This lack of cleaning would never be acceptable but in this Covid era when hygiene practices should be heightened, it demonstrates a lack of management and must be detrimental to the rehabilitation of the travel industry.

Would be great to see Easyjet operate to LBA/EMA/BOH even for the Christmas/Newyear period but seems not on the cards maybe they will change there minds in next few weeks.
