Can't really think of anything massive other than loco longhaul but can't see it myself
Probably just a seat sale :rolleyes:

inOban 12th Sep 2017 22:42

Buying a large part of Alitalia or Air Berlin?

BHX5DME 12th Sep 2017 22:48

BHX base please

EI-EIDW 12th Sep 2017 22:57

Have I completely missed the EZY and DY/WestJet agreement as well as EZY to EZY connections announcement?

https://www.easyjet.com/en/worldwide

Jerry123 12th Sep 2017 22:58

Maybe finally a base at CWL?!

_aax1 12th Sep 2017 23:02

I doubt it's anything in the UK. Probably a base in Austria or Germany.

They kept that hidden. Not on their media page. When did this come out?

EI-EIDW 12th Sep 2017 23:07

Logged on to regular site and it was the background pic.

If it hasn't been announced I would expect it's what the tweet is about.

True Blue 12th Sep 2017 23:26

Seems to be connections with Norwegian and Westjet using Gatwick Connects.

toledoashley 13th Sep 2017 06:51

Well done, great find!

Captain_Caveman 13th Sep 2017 06:59

Official announcement to the world is today. That's why there has been no coverage until now.

lfc84 13th Sep 2017 09:10

gatwick connects has been operating for years already

Lon12 13th Sep 2017 10:00

Yeah

Just lunched new partner flights

Pegpilot 13th Sep 2017 11:14

All well and good, but the fact the pax will be responsible for handling their baggage themselves at connection airports kind of implies that what they're selling is a pair of point-to-point tickets. Who carries the risk for missed connections ?

lfc84 13th Sep 2017 11:21

Gatwick Connects

GAZMO 13th Sep 2017 11:35

Will the bookings have to be made via Gatwick Connects or will they be available via easyjet website

j636 13th Sep 2017 11:56

They will also allow connections at Euro bases such as MXP, BCN, CDG, AMS, GVA etc

Expressflight 18th Sep 2017 11:42

The easyJet Spring 2018 programme should be released on Wednesday of this week.

inOban 18th Sep 2017 12:02

Should be? They've updated the website today, so I guess it's will be!

ESCNI 23rd Sep 2017 06:04

8am easyjet Belfast flight to Liverpool cancelled at midnight last night.

Lots of our 52 won't be able to go the Everton v Bournemouth game now.

For "crew welfare issues" ... whatever that means!

virginblue 23rd Sep 2017 14:01

German media are reporting that easyJet is the preferred bidder for airberlin subsidiary LGW. The plan apparently is to prop this carrier up with A320s currently leased by airberlin proper and to expand the easyJet operation in Berlin (probably by adding TXL - my guess) and enter the Dusseldorf market at a relatively massive scale, including domestic flights. Currenlty there is sime wrangling behind the scenes regarding slots at Dusseldorf which is one of the most slot-constrained airports in Europe.

Does easyJet fly Luton to Menorca 7 days a week in summer?
 
easyJet has not yet released their timetable for summer 2018, but I was wondering if anyone can tell me how often they usually fly Luton to Menorca (Mahon) in the summer months? e.g. July and August.

No crystal balls expected, but maybe someone knows from previous years if they usually fly 7 days a week, or only certain days then that would be nice to hear.

Thank you.

Johnny [email protected] Pants 24th Sep 2017 11:03

As we are currently still in the peak summer season, why not have a look at easyJet's schedule for this next week. Alternatively, wait till Thursday morning, all will be revealed

AerRyan 24th Sep 2017 11:14

Why a new thread?

Flights in June 2018 operate Tue/Fri/Sat. It's likely that July and August will be the same frequency.

Edit: Just looked at the flight history for Jul/Aug 2017 - EZY2257 operated daily ex Sun/Mon, so ignore the above. :O

I wouldn't call September 24th as being 'currently still in the peak' summer season as that finished once the kids went back to school over two weeks ago, we're more into the beginning of autumn now!

Actually Wednesday, 27th.

Boeing737-8 24th Sep 2017 14:44

Thursday 28th should be any new routes

The schedule doesn't suddenly change in the first week of September. Whilst I appreciate that the schedule tails off towards the end of October I would be surprised if there is any difference between the schedule for this next week and what the schedule was 6 weeks ago, it isn't where I work.

VentureGo 24th Sep 2017 16:44

I was recently advised on the Newcastle thread that easyJet's service to Split, Croatia from Newcastle only ran from Mid June to their last flight for the season on 17th September - so maybe current schedules will not reflect the full summer season.

Same for EasyJet's STN-MAH and STN-ZTH I'm pretty sure both of those ended mid September rather than the official end of the summer schedule which is end of October. Easy clearly do operate peak season flights/routes.

Amazed they still launch so late. I booked my Spring flights with BA months ago and have crossed checked against EZY launch fares and BA were still cheaper.

LAX_LHR 28th Sep 2017 18:53

Looks like some Easyjet expansion in the UK next summer.

Belfast, Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester and Southend all look to be getting an extra aircraft each.

GAZMO 28th Sep 2017 18:57

Check Belfast thread for press release re BFS

Any guesses for new routes? This winters new AGA route from MAN doesn't appear to be bookable for next summer and neither does LPA. Thought these would've been popular year round.

LAX_LHR 28th Sep 2017 19:52

MAN-LPA was launched as winter season only, it's due to lack of volume on hotel rooms in the summer, as it's very popular with Germans in particular in the summer who take up the lions share of the rooms.

MAN-AGA probably suits the winter sun method more, as Agadir drops off a little in the summer as the Med areas are more popular. MAN has Air Arabia Maroc and Thomson in the summer so ample capacity.

It's no different to Lyon and Turin also being winter only, serve the routes at their peak flows.

As for new routes, I have heard 3 mentioned, but we will just have to see what transpires.

inOban 28th Sep 2017 20:30

I was looking at the EDI Easy departures for S18 and noticed that Madeira stops at the end of this season. It's several years since they dropped any route from EDI. Fortunately it's being picked up by Jet2.

So far the only increase for S18 that I have noticed is that Berlin goes to daily. I think there may be more bfs flights as well.

Liverpool also sees two A319s up gauged to A320s giving 5nr A320 and 3nr A319 from July '18.

tws123 4th Oct 2017 22:18

SEN 4th based aircraft for S18 confirmed as an A320 and will join the existing 3 A319s.
