Great news for DUB and EI.

I remember a while ago they made a large order for Airbus narrowbodies, were they to replace the older A320s and B737s in the fleet or to expand?

Pera,
Me too! Used to work at EI here in STO. Apparently they might consider it next year - if their flight to CPH does well....

We'll see!

Good news for people travelling to and from DUB!  Smile

If a new terminal is built at DUB, FR said it will definitely base 10 additional 738 machines at the airport and serve 20 new cities. This has been on the cards for ages now, but that might, I hope, change.

Great news!

Unusual to have airlines flying to Bergamo and Linate and Malpensa; interesting to see if routes to all three will continue.

Just waiting to see if they have any long haul routes in the pipeline.

As someone who traveled through DUB extensively during my college years there I can't help but wonder how the airport has room for the ever expanding routes. The B Pier during the AM is by and large reserved for transatlantic traffic. The C Pier was quiet for a while but now EI have invaded that sanctuary, and the A Pier remains the FR stronghold . . . they desperately need a new airport / terminal . . . Once all the new 320s arrive the place is going to be mayhem!

X Kaitak
Just reading on an italian aviation forum that Milan Malpensa (MXP) will be dropped in favour of Bergamo (BGY).
Milan Linate (LIN) will continue to be served by EI with the 1 daily flight from Dublin.
BGY will get all the actual scheduled of MXP (I refer to the summer flights to Dublin and Cork).
So we'll have a BGY/DUB operated on a 4 weekly base (735) and BGY/ORK on a twice weekly (A-320).

The new Naples/Dublin service will be operated on a 3 weekly base (A-320).

Bye

But:
Introductory each way fares excluding taxes and charges

There beginning to sound like BMI and don't know what kind of carrier they want to be.

They are launching services to destinations that are already popular with LCC but want to remain a main line carrier.

I wonder if they will offer passengers the chance to connect onto their transatlantic flights. It would be more appealing than to customers who fly with FR.

That's true but there is very little competition on these routes from Ireland. They are losing the characteristics of a main line carrier bit by bit. One thing they'll never be able to do however is get their cost base anywhere near as low as FR.

There aren't too many more European niches left from DUB now. I still think there's potential for Athens, Istanbul and Bratislava however. Maybe we'll see EI move in to the Baltic market also. The Baltics have huge potential as a result of immigration (into Ireland), VFR pax and city break pax (from Ireland). Although Air Baltic, Lithuanian and Estonian all serve DUB their timings are shocking.

I agree. They have the right fleet to and no comp. It would say alot of people having to transit though other airports.

Aer Lingus placed the order for the A320's to replace all of the aging 737 series (734, 735) aircraft in their fleet. They will replace the 11 737's with 12 A320's for a total of 21 A320's, 6 A321's, 4 A330-300's, and 3 A330-200's.

11 A320's in service, with 10 more to arrive by the end of 2005. 2 x 734 and 6 x 735 still in service, all of which will be gone by end of 2005.

I remember soon after they made the order for the A320s, it was reported that they'll make an order for widebody aircraft to double their current long haul fleet. Have there been any developments there?

I would say Airbus will almost definitely 'win' further A330 (-200 and -300) orders for EI's long haul exansion, but they might consider the A340 if the airline seriously plan to expand in Asia and South Africa (as has been reported a number of times on A.net).

How old is there A320 fleet anyways?

The A320 fleet is extremely new; the four original A320s were only delivered in 1Q01, but the current order is being delivered right now, so they're very new indeed. I think about six of them have been delivered, out of 17 on order.

The A321 fleet dates back to around 98/99.

The A330 is certainly the front runner, but I think it would be a big mistake for Airbus to count these particular chickens. Boeing knows that EI is going to be expanding its long haul fleet very considerably and wants to be a partner in this. They want the new fleet from 2008, by which time the 7E7 will be entering service; do they want to start taking delivery in 2008 of an aircraft which will be outclassed? Don't get me wrong, I like the 332, but I think the 7E7 could serve EI very well; I'm not convinced by the A350. Sounds like a bit of a spoiler to me.
