Now covid is over some owners are selling out of infrastructure in general - I'd imagine they'd get a good price for EDI

If you read the Reuters article you'll see it says "Among the largest of the airports that may see a change of ownership as soon as 2024 is Edinburgh, five of the sources said". Hence a sale may happen in 2024 not by 2024.

A China Southern B77L cargo due in this morning. Presumably to collect the pandas.

Ryanair

SeanM reporting a new route. Cologne - 3 x weekly from end of March 2024. Good news and appears to show-up comments made by a regular contributor on this forum, made on a Glasgow forum that EDI is a big loser (max aircraft) and their is no new routes from Scotland.

Pandas left EDI today with China Southern, possibly the first time they've visited EDI.

I didn't know that Ryanair had to have a RUK G- based airframe at each UK base? We left the EU ages ago, was there an extended period of transition that easyJet missed?

Honestly I'm not 100% sure. My source said that was part of the reason that EI had to stop flying BHF-LHR as they couldn't because they are Irish and couldn't operate anymore.

I don't think they do. Certainly PIK has always been EI- registered based aircraft. I think the G- aircraft are needed to do intra-UK or UK-non EU flights.

Ah, that makes sense actually. Apologies if I got it wrong.

Ryanair have a different AOC for non-EU/domestic flights, Ryanair UK (RK), this AOC uses G- reg AC, from EDI they are used on TIA, RAK, NQY etc. Some bases have more/less G- reg aircraft, e.g. NCL and PIK have none, whilst BFS only has G- reg RK aircraft, presumably given the number of domestic services.

UK domestics and UK to non-EU should normally be done with G- aircraft, so hence the Ryanair AOC. This is also the reason for the G- Aer Lingus ATR fleet based out of BHD, they didn't want to add a single A320 to a new AOC to maintain BHD-LHR.
Thanks guys, makes sense.

UA S24

United appear to be making some changes. The Washington service will now resume much earlier than normal. First service from IAD - 30th March 2024. Credit PM for the heads up. Good news for pax travelling at Easter.

Thanks to SeanM1997 on X, Turkish Airlines are increasing IST from 7 to 10 weekly. I'm not sure what days the extra flights operate.

I noticed last week on the Austrian Website the Edelweiss have extra flights to Zurich for the Euros that depart EDI at 0320

Do we know if the extra TK flights will all be A321?

Swiss/Edelweiss

Swiss/Edelweiss increasing flights in days leading up to the start of Euro 2024. Additional flight leaving EDI at 03:15 with a connection via Zurich available for fans travelling to Munich and other German destinations. Will this be the earliest scheduled AM departure EDI will have seen?

Wont be many eating/Drinking options available for fans at such an early hour…
