Edinburgh-4

According to SPD travels on twitter, Wizz have applied for a 4x aircraft base (A321) at both EDI and MAN. Good news if it comes to Fruition.

Just curious. There was an extra Finnair flight inbound on ? Monday but no advertised return. However there is a flight to Helsinki today without an inbound. Did the plane spend two days on the ground at Edinburgh?

I notice that several routes eg to Ireland and AMS seem to be picking up recently.

Finland's women's football team beat Scotland's 1-0 at Easter Road last night, so I suspect it was a charter related to that.

Article here speculating that MAN, CWL, SEN and EDI could be Wizz Air's next bases:

https://www.anna.aero/2020/12/02/rou...demic-started/

"Váradi expects more UK bases. He didn’t suggest where, except where slots aren’t such an issue. anna.aero predicts that Manchester, Cardiff, London Southend, and Edinburgh will become future Wizz Air UK bases."

Edinburgh and Manchester base rumours have been doing the rounds for a few weeks - 4x A321s to be based. Surprised they havent announced anything yet though, Cardiff came from nowhere. Perhaps they are just that.. rumours. We'll see.

The rumours are based on slot applications so some substance to them.

They'll be operating to 11 destinations from Southampton at weekends throughout the summer while LCY is closed. This seems to be coming at the expense of previous weekend flights they have done from Manchester and Stansted, possibly EDI too.

Loganair adding Edinburgh to Glasgow tag on flights to Stornoway! Next they'll be flights between Edinburgh and Newcastle! What strange times we live in.

https://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.c...-takes-3067009

Passengers at Edinburgh airport had been left scratching their heads when departure boards read the name of the neighbouring city’s flight centre, roughly an hours drive away.

But Loganair explained the obscure route via their Facebook page.

It wrote: “Well, it's no mistake, no publicity stunt, nor is it just a novel way of cutting down on rush hour traffic on the M8.

“The actual reason, however, is another side-effect of the pandemic...

"With insufficient demand for some routes from Edinburgh directly, we've temporarily amended our schedules to provide new mini-hubs across our network, allowing you to fly routes such as Edinburgh-Stornoway, via Glasgow, and Inverness to Kirkwall, via Aberdeen, to keep you connected as best as we possibly can right now.”

Ezy are cutting:
• 2x weekly Bilbao
• 2x weekly Catania (will not start)
• 2x weekly Stuttgart
• 2x weekly Seville (still served by Ryanair).
• 2x weekly Verona (still served by Jet2).
• 3x weekly Vienna (still served by Ryanair).

Terrible news.

Does this mean that they might replace them with new ones and maintain their slots at EDI?

I wouldn't have thought so. If there was to be a return to similar schedules it will be these routes that resurface, give or take.
