Not in any way unexpected. Long-haul travel to the east in any sort of meaningful numbers will not be returning in 2021. Closest realistic restart date is summer 2022. There are many factors involved in that though. I think we are all hoping for QR to return in better days.

It appears that the app was a glitch. No idea about the website. Hopefully they'll be back in the future!

6 x weekly in July & August (no flight on Sun)
3 x weekly in September & October (Tu,Th,F)

Faro remains 2 x weekly Mondays & Fridays for the entire summer season.

As a side note, Vueling have started to load their W21/22 November & December flights to ALC - currently at 3 x weekly (Tu,Th,Sa) up to 18th December.

Barcelona looks like it might be returning. Its appeared on the app as 2 weekly Tuesday and Saturday from May until the end of October but at the moment no flights loaded. Fingers crossed they'll be loaded soon and maybe even Malta might return as well!

Well unfortunately it looks like the increases were too good to be true!
Malaga will remain 3 weekly but on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays except June when it's 2 weekly with no Thursday flight. The route will operate in September and October so some good news there.

Unfortunately Barcelona has disappeared from the drop down on the app.

It was reported elsewhere (I think Twitter) that Ryanair uploaded lots of new flights which were visible on the app/website for a few hours and included other airports such as STN, ABZ, BRS etc along with CWL that were then hidden.......who knows really but we may see BCN appear at some point again

No, the good news will be IF it starts operating on 1st May. Presently I really cannot see how leisure travel is going to get up and running much before July, I mean the plan at the moment is only to have vaccinated over 50s by May.

CANARIAN AIRWAYS IS BORN, THE NEW CANARY AIRLINE
Today Wednesday, the Cabildo of Tenerife hosted the presentation of Canarian Airways, a new air carrier led by hoteliers Tinerfeños and One Airways, which will begin operating from June from Tenerife South Airport with a single 144-seater plane.
The new airline will launch from next March the sale and booking of tickets, flying to destinations such as Madrid, Barcelona, Vigo and Bilbao, Glasgow, Cardiff and Berlin.

Interesting why CWL has been picked, not that I’m knocking it. One A319 has already been bought by the airline (ex Atlantic Airways) but cannot find a website for the airline at present but guess it be nice to have a new carrier for sure as and when it launches.

Saw mentioned 144 seats so assume A319, will be interesting to see if this ever gets off the ground!

Could there be a “potential” return of Aer Lingus and a CWL-DUB route ? CWL has appeared on drop down menu but all flights are showing “sold out” along with other flights to BHX & EDI from ORK & SNN.

Baffled as to why EI pulled that route so only time will tell

they pulled the route because CWL management got too comfy in bed with BEE, as they did with WW causing FR to pull out of the DUB route in 2006 (?). Fingers crossed CWL-DUB will return!

The other story is that they weren't getting enough onward traffic to the USA and wanted to use the aircraft to expand at other airports.
CWL has been on the drop down for Dublin for quite a while.

Wasn’t DUB one of BE’s most used route passenger wise though ? I remember in the FR days with both the 732 & 738 that the loads were always high. Yes £££ has to do with it but DUB was certainly not an under used route. If EI can serve EXT & NQY then logically CWL would also work but again all down to £££, COVID recovery and demand.
