When will the report be published and publicly available?

Rumours about Saudia starting BHX-JED were circling a long while before they started. I for one was sceptical about these rumours but it happened and the service is performing very well although I have no idea how much traffic is for Saudi itself or for onward connections. And cargo is a factor too

Saudi Arabia has huge ambition to become a major tourist destination on the global stage and is stopping at nothing to do so. So I'd be highly surprised if Saudia don't add another UK route or if Riyadh Air join the party. With Saudia now serving LGW, LHR, BHX and MAN it makes sense their next foray into the UK market will be Scotland and I'd put my money on EDI.

​​Having said that, Saudia did put ACL slot applications in for BHX so if as stated there aren't any in for EDI, then perhaps it's not happening - for now.

I personally doubt that NCL will see a service to Saudi Arabia ahead of EDI just because Saudia sponsor NUFC.

Air Transat to Toronto I would guess? 🇨🇦
Halifax was an Air Canada route out of PIK/GLA but not for decades.

VY EDI-BCN still not showing as available for Summer 2024 as of yet! Is it showing in the slot report for the summer?

Westjet it would appear, as per tweet below. ​​They operated Halifax-GLA for a few years prior to COVID. Will be interesting to see if, if it happens, it's in addition to or instead of Calgary.

Not surprised by that at all. It appeared to be a huge success this year.

Are they starting earlier or just extending the season. JFK restarts April?

First rotation is 24th May 2024 from ATL. Will they bring forward? Highly possible.

depends on US school holidays

as Wiki says:- " In the United States, depending on the region, summer break is approximately two to three months, with students typically finishing the school year in late-May or early-June and starting the new year in mid-late August or early-September."

Now that the September CAA stats are out the final average load factor for ATL is confirmed at 93.09%.

For those wondering this has been calculated by adding up all the CAA stats for the route from May through September to get 43,566 pax and then dividing it by the seats available figure from ACL Start of Season Report which was 46,800.

No formal announcement yet, but Westjet's website is showing daily YYZ (dropping to 4pw in Sept), 3x weekly YHZ peak summer only, plus YYC increasing to 4x weekly.

Excellent news. Look forward to the official confirmation. It is a substantial expansion and quite a u-turn from Westjet. A very welcome change of strategy. Direct, daily competition with AC on the Toronto route. Will they use a 78M again or go with a 789?

New route to Halifax, presumably on a 78M. A certain Glasgow forum will be livid. How dare EDI pinch our former route 😂.

Frequency increase for Calgary also.

CCF, MRS, FNI, PMO, PIS, OPO, SCQ, TLS, TRN & WMI all currently not available for booking - there is still a possibility of further changes, especially to WMI as noted in my original post.
Further to this post SeanM1997 confirmed on X that CCF, FNI, PIS, SCQ & TRN are removed.

MRS loaded at 2 weekly (will be 4, just 2 are showing as sold out currently)

OPO and TLS not currently loaded, however, Ryanair is still waiting to confirm 10% of it's summer 2024 schedules as they try to grip with ever changing MAX delays.

It's a very impressive increase - especially given that Edinburgh's only Canadaian route was a 4(?) Weekly summer only Air Canada Rouge service not that long ago.

Another number year for TATL capacity from Edinburgh. Makes me wonder how sustainable it is but let's hope it keeps up. Wonder as well where the extra rotations from YYC are coming from given WestJet don't have an extra 789 - fairly sure it was shared with Barcelona IIRC.

That Glasgow forum is entertaining - and this is coming from someone who lives out west and is disappointed at the cuts. I quite liked the reply saying that a poster would no longer have an interest in any airline which moves east from Glasgow 😅

Has it not come from the 789 that served YYC to LGW? I believe that has been cut.

Im pretty sure I read recently that Westjet have or is about to receive additional 789s. Theyll certainly require them as they appear to be increasing Calgary to Tokyo and Rome to daily in S24.

Quite a challenge to AC in S24, even if WS operate YYZ on a 78M.

The last 2 B789s were painted but NTU.
YYC-LGW being dropped frees up one B789.

Makes sense - hasn't realised Gatwick had been dropped. Cheers!
