EWR-STN probably a low risk expansion, however Dubai -- things will get croweded with Silverjet in the market also.
Quote: Eos Airlines Announces July 6 Launch of New Route between London and Dubai
Monday February 11, 8:00 am ET
- Service between Newark and London Begins May 5, Reservations Available Mid-February -
PURCHASE, N.Y., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Eos, the "Uncrowded, Uncompromising" choice for travel between New York and London today announced that it is expanding its schedule and route network with daily service between London's Stansted Airport and Dubai International Airport starting on July 6, 2008. Eos will also enhance its existing service to the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area with the launch of service between New Jersey's Newark International Airport and London's Stansted Airport effective May 5th. Eos will begin issuing tickets for travel between Newark and London starting mid-February and will begin issuing tickets for travel between London and Dubai in March.
With Stansted's easy access to London's financial district, the City, and industry leading on-time operations, Eos' new service will be the most convenient option between Dubai and London for business travelers, and the only option that offers an uncrowded end-to-end "Eos Class" travel experience.
For passengers who prefer EWR over JFK, and vice versa, or who's final destination is nearer EWR than JFK, and vice versa. The same reason BA, VS, LO, LH, AF, AZ, SQ, Jet, AI, KL/NW serve both airports. Serving both airports offers more choice, helps them compete better with rivals in the LON-NYC market. Slot availability could also be an issue
There are areas especially in Manhatten where EWR is a shorter trip than JFK. JFK sees more premium routes and airlines, but EWR can maintain well. EWR and JFK might not be that far apart, but with New York's size and traffic, they are separate market. We are only talking 50 seats a day.
Quoting Atrude777 (Reply 3): EOS offers First Class while Silver is only Business.
It is important to know that Eos is business class technically. This is important because although they have a higher quality product and do charge more, companies that are willing to pay business class fares but not first class fares will allow people to fly on Eos. Companies have become very strict when it comes to paying for first class, so marketing service as business class will allow them to get many more travelers. A first class only airline would probably not survive because companies won't pay for that on paper. However they will pay for first class quality at a business class fare and price.
