Great news. Always thought a Toronto route from Edinburgh would do reasonably well and it's good to see the 787 being retained.

Would be even better to see the route continue throughout the winter as well, even if it's on a reduced frequency on the 737 Max.

Agreed re the winter service. Always good to see more wide bodies at EDI so a daily 788 in the summer is fantastic news.

I donít think Westjet are doing too badly eitherÖ

Great to see, funny I was just looking at the number of flights from Scandinavia today.

It's amazing, looking at a map of Europe only Bosnia, Slovenia, Monaco, Vatican City, Luxemburg, Andorra and Corsica aren't served direct from Edinburgh, huge change from the 80's when Amsterdam and Dublin were the only regular international flights

And on that note I see SAS's CPH service operating today, contrary to a previous post saying it had been dropped.

According to Flightradar24 itís only operated twice in the past 90 days (three scheduled flights but one cancelled). There is a further flight on 9th July. Could it be related to the Tour de France which started in CPH yesterday.

Edit: I checked on SAS and it seems available twice a week (Wednesdays and Saturdays) in August at least. Not sure thatís much competition for the other flights operated by Ryanair, Easyjet and Norwegian.

SK to still serve ARN from Edi in Winter as will Norwegian too

There won't be many cities in Europe that do have direct flights to Vatican City and Monaco...

I know, I was being sarcastic because if I hadn't said that but said all of Europe was served, someone would point that out as a failure of Edinburgh not having a service to Monte Carlo lol

Keeping the A321 as well, looks like Air France using their own metal on CDG through winter 22

BA Canellations

Does anyone know how many flights (if any) BA are cancelling to EDI as a result of there summer cull?

Jetblue

Lots of chat in various forums about JetBlue UK expansion. A number have expressed a view that EDI would be an obvious choice. I’m not so sure right now. EDI currently commands very good connectivity to US mid/east hubs. If they were to take a punt they would most likely be competing with DL and UA on established routes to NYC. DL - Boston route is also performing very strongly. In my view, UA may look at a Denver service to EDI in the near future. Denver is currently the largest airport in the US by size and is growing rapidly. United have just announced another multi million dollar investment which will mean 90 gates in the next 3 years.

Nope, donít see Denver (or JetBlue) anytime soon. Think the ill fated ATL might appear again before either of those.
Even BA from LHR to DEN is lacklusture (in gauge, fares, cabin offerings, and availability) so I think thats ambitious at best.

It would be great to get ATL back for the connectivity to the wider US and would I am sure drive more inbound traffic.
Ideally a year round Orlando and Toronto service would be great also 😉
As for JetBlue - Perhaps a seasonal low cost offering from the NE US may be attractive to different customer base similar to AC vs WestJet?
And will AA return with Philly inS23 when they eventually get more aircraft?

Ryanair - Spring 23

New route from March 23. Edinburgh - Belfast International. Daily service. Direct competition with EasyJet. A fair way off but positive news.

Excellent news. Quite an upgrade. Clearly they must have big demand. Surely Emirates must be thinking again about a Dubai service to/ from EDI?

The changes appear to be only for September. I presume they are due to a) aircraft availability due to A350 groundings and b) increase in international students arriving for start of academic term. It seems to revert to a 788 in October.

I would have thought EK would go back to double daily at GLA before resuming EDI.
