They've done the same with Newcastle too. I wonder if they are concentrating on Frankfurt for now until demand recovers? No doubt it will return in the future.

I was just looking at the figures from a more 'normal' year in 2019 - 11k pax between Edinburgh and Munich in Feb 2019 and 19k in August 2019. That's a lot of demand to have just disappeared now to be only served by one airline which, at the time of writing, will not even be daily! I guess it shows the true impact some airlines think Covid will have had on demand this year.

As reported on other threads, EasyJet are to start a 2x weekly EDI-BOH service from the 27th of May. Good to see some extra domestic services added.

Ryanair are adding a new 2x weekly service to Knock operating on Wednesday and Sunday, commencing the 1st of September. Will be year round. Good news to see more new routes.

interesting theyre dropping 5/wk EDI-LDY and starting NOC 2/wk.
Loads were often a bit ropey on a BE dash never mind a 738.

In fairness, you can't really Knock it until you've tried it

Knock is not meant to be a substitute for LDY as it's nearly a 4 hour drive from LDY.

NOC serves greater Co Sligo market, Knock serviced about 1 million precovid and before Ryanair.

LDY dropped/suspended due to Brexit rules about domestic flights.

So Brexit reduces domestic flights within the UK...great.

Is there a reason Ryanair UK can't operate EDI-LDY? That's why they've just put another one on the UK register.

nothing to stop "Ryanair UK" operating domestically within the UK.
They planned to Just wetlease any of the 450 a/c to Ryanair UK but the CAA won't allow this.

There are only 2 G- reg aircraft now. So maybe a while before more UK domestic routes added.

Announced a few days ago that Lauda are adding a new 2x weekly Zadar service.

Also very early days but Lufthansa have put the first few days of S22 on sale and MUC appears to return (7x weekly A319) from the 27th of March 2022.

I suspect they'll become quite popular on thin European routes

Can you elaborate, the A220-300 for Air Baltic has 145 seats.

If you look at the A318 thread that's around somewhere on here the general feeling is that LCO's are currently using the A.320 as the baseline and most expect to convert to the A321.

That's the reason Airbus bought the programme from Bombardier - its fits in under their current main offerings. An LCO needs a lot of seats (relatively speaking) because of the cost structure. Use turboprops for the real low cost/short range stuff and jets with over 100 seats for the mass market. Certainly in Europe & ME that'll be the pattern

Ah yes totally agree, thought you meant specifically Edinburgh to Riga was a thin route, Air Baltic only have the A220

In reaction to Air Baltic coming on to the route, Ryanair have increased EDI-RIX from 2x to 4x weekly (new Mon and Fri flights).
