You’ve now got Virgin and WS in the mix taking transatlantic connections.
Apart from UA, American about to start culling their regional Euro summer routes… Make of that what you will.
I appreciate your point that pre-covid the daily services to Newark may rarely have ran full; however GLA also had a service at this point too. So overall the Central belt is down to one daily flight to Newark which, for now at least, appears to be doing well but occasionally suffering due to the older airframes having issues.

IMO the VS MCO and WS/AC Toronto flights are a very different summer seasonal market to the Newark flights.
Newark is mainly about onward US connections or NYC so only DL directly competing.

Have you information suggesting that AA will not return to EDI in ‘23?

International Schedule

Not looked at Edinburgh arrivals for while. Great to see a busy schedule again today, 10 scheduled flights from Germany to Edinburgh. As well as flights from every scandi county between Iceland and Finland and those in-between.

April Pax up!

Good Pax number from EDI in April (931,552 pax) which is an encouraging sign of recovery. With more long haul and wide body’s returning then hopefully the recovery will continue.

They are, but there are certain routes which are clearly recovering more slowly, such as the more business-orientated destinations eg Munich.

Agree. Not all airports have reported pax numbers for April as yet. Will be very interesting to compare similar sized English airport by pax number - such as BHX. I strongly suspect Scottish airports such as EDI and GLA will recover much slower compared to airports down south. EDI CEO is on record as saying that Sturgeons complete refusal to engage about a safe return to travel hugely damaged the airport and sector more generally. For purely political reasons, only a few weeks ago, her deputy was suggesting that Scots should not travel overseas in 2022 due to the risk of importing variants of the virus. What chance do you have when individuals in power or with influence continue to brief against the travel sector?

Yet Sturgeon is off on her jollies to America next week. Wonder if she's flying commercial or private? She too good to sit with the plebs in coach?

There's each airport's March 2022 passenger numbers (those that have reported and leaving aside small airports) as a percentage of their March 2019 passenger numbers.


Not sure that data supports your strong suspicion.

EDI-MUC increased from 3 x weekly to daily. FRA 2 x daily.

When I worked at EDI it was common to see her in the terminal, using commercial flights, like everyone else. Of course she usually had a security guard by her side, but that's only to be expected of any political leader.

I have had a look and all I can see when I type in "John Swinney, 2022 foreign travel warning" are articles from May 2021. I also don't recall seeing or hearing any foreign travel warnings since early/mid last year from anyone in the Scottish Government.

Nice to have something veering towards ‘premium’ as the rest of the main departures is far from it and can often be a bit of a zoo during peak months.

Yes it’s good to see some new investment at the airport after No1 Lounges short stay.

Airport did seam busy this week so surprised that second Aspire lounge has not reopened yet (lack of staff maybe?)

Might try and avoid the mornings with the 5-6 wide body departures 😂

Wonder why TK retreating swiftly back to just IST? Would have though DLM and AYT would have at least survived a summer. Too much ‘cheap’ competition maybe.

So does that overcapacity then drop off in September and October as the flights seam to return twice weekly for those two remaining months of the summer season?

Is it not that August is NOT peak in Scotland more rather July because of the differing School holiday period ?

Can you provide more info on what you are talking about here? Have they announced they are dropping the routes?
