Dang lol, why is Edinburgh the only forum where people lose their absolute sh#t at the mere discussion of a new route.
Haters got to hate.
It's common on here.
MAN vs. LPL
BFS vs. BHD
BOH vs. SOU
NCL vs. MME
GLA vs. EDI
LTN vs. STN
Each local airport is working to take traffic from that which is "righfully" the others. There's also a few settled ones.
CVT vs. BHX
PIK vs. GLA
DSA vs. er....anyone else

anyway, back to predictions. If Hainan are resurfacing at MAN (and infact upping to twice weekly) could then retry the ill-fated triangle route EDI DUB again or even EDI MAN?

😂 Careful that sort of wild speculation might really wide a few people up!😂
I once thought that this thread was actually for exactly that purpose in terms of rumours and speculation - but have become dismayed by the number of self proclaimed experts ready to slam any hint of non verified fact.

Although it would be good to see I think a restart by Hainan is unlikely. Would like to see EK return at some point.

I reckon PLAY might try a thice weeky. It would be nice to get some Far East charters like JAL/ANA weekly during the summer months, similar to Korean at GLA. Would Hanian/CAAC try the same?

As much as I’d like to see a direct or some form of Chinese route from EDI, given the current political agendas restricting pax traveling to/from China, I don’t see this happening anytime soon. It would also be an open goal for Sturgeon to try to reimpose restrictions on foreign travel to/from Scotland. History tells us she would jump at the chance to politicise matters and do something different from England.

I remember it was heavily rumoured that China eastern would be announcing Shanghai a few years ago, Edinburgh was rumoured alongside Stockholm and Stockholm did launch. Once things settle in China you might see this pop up again.

IMHO EK is a given. It’s just when.

TK

Turkish have increased capacity for the next week with equipment changes. Starting tomorrow, A333, Sun 321 then 332 Monday to Friday. The slots allocation did indicate an increase in capacity in 2023. It could also be to meet increased demand from pax traveling from China. I suspect further changes to operating equipment is likely.

Just curious if TK add EDI to their Pakistan Airlines code share agreement?
I have seen posts that suggests that this has driven up loads and lead to TK increasing capacity elsewhere in UK.

Peak summer Jun-Sep FR service EDI-NQY for S23
Quite a lot of capacity from Scotland now to NQY, can it all last?

Calm down it's only 2 flights a week with RK from Jun-Sep

Loganair are doing a reduced 5 to 6 a week variable.

Don't see what the panic is, just Ryanair filling the mayfly for their UK reg aircraft that's doing 3 Edi-Stn a day with BOH and hopefully LDY on alternate days I'm the gaps.

Good old Tikkers.. right on cue. Its getting tiresome. Everyone is ‘calm’ and there is no ‘panic’ except seemingly some drama from you.

I'm challenging you to provide data for your claims and comments that two weekly FR is overcapacity after all you've invited discussion.

Loganair have already said back in August'22 they will curtail their NQY summer 23 programme

The eden project has over 1 million visitors a year, 1.2 million live within a 90min catchment of NQY with no real alternative. With the Cornwall area having and estimated 4.8 million visitors.

Loganair's curtailing of the NQY programme involved dropping MME-INV and re-directing planned growth

In a further blow to Cornwall’s connectivity, summer routes linking Newquay with Teesside and onwards to Inverness will not return in 2023, and planned growth on other routes is to be redirected to other UK airports.
This was due to:

We’re most disappointed that short-sighted and short-term decisions by the airport’s management to incentivise unsustainable operations by other airlines leave no prospect of winter flights remaining viable, particularly against a backdrop of high fuel prices and rising inflation.

Looks like it could be a return of Etihad. Very good news if confirmed!
