Dear all,

Similar to the Ryanair thread at http://www.airliners.net/aviation-fo...eneral_aviation/read.main/4323189/ , I would like to dedicate a topic to new easyJet routes.

Unlike many other carriers, easyJet is (on their website) typically very quiet about new routes: at least their English website hardly mentions routes in other countries, so often they are launched unnoticed. Okay, to start:

On March 12, easyJet announced 2 new domestic Italian routes to start in June:

VCE-FCO (2-daily)
VCE-NAP (2-daily)

Typical schedules (weekdays):
FCO-VCE 06:50-07:55
VCE-FCO 11:55-13:00

FCO-VCE 16:15-17:20
VCE-FCO 21:25-22:30

VCE-NAP 08:30-09:40
NAP-VCE 10:15-11:25

VCE-NAP 17:55-19:05
NAP-VCE 19:40-20:50

It's obvious that the routes are operated on a 2 W-patterns:
FCO-VCE-NAP-VCE-FCO

This routes mark the further commitment of easyJet to the Rome market and from June, they'll have 2 aircraft based at FCO. All destinations are served with relatively high frequencies: MXP 3 daily, PMO 3 daily, LGW 3 daily and BRI 2 daily.

Probably LGW will see the first few new A320s, then MAN will get its 3.

Heard rumours that MAN would become all A319 with the 320s migrating south to LGW and BRS.



When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Not a chance of that unless they drop TFS and PFO from manch!

Why not? I don't think there is a huge difference in capacity between the ex GB Airways A320 and the A319 in U2 config? Maybe they don't need the extra capacity of the A320 on these routes?

It's a performance issue. As for A320's being based at LTN, BRS etc, every base is to get A320's if rumour is to be believed.



Proud to fly from Manchester!

156 vs 174 and soon to be 180.
The problem is the MTOW when the a319 is up near MZFW. You are unable to then fit enough fuel on!

So you either limit the number of pax or make a tech stop which is what has been done several times last summer when an a319 has covered for a320s not only at MAN but also LGW.

I always thought the A319 had a greater range than the A320. It certainly has USA transcon range which is longer than any of the routes we are talking about here. Are U2s A319s different in any way to those of AC or UA or is is just down to the increased number of seats on the U2 aircraft?

True. Fully fuel an a319 and an a320 and the a319 will go further (not including any extra centre tanks). As I already stated it is due to the MZFW and MTOW. Basically when both planes are at MZFW you cant get the required fuel and keep the plane under MTOW in the a319 for the longer sectors but you can on the a320!
