According to BBC East Midlands, WW will tomorrow announce new routes – including Sardinia, Corsica, BCN*, ORK, NQY and VCE* (and a couple others that I can’t recall). In addition, some existing routes will receive increased frequencies – presumably those that will lose EZY service, like NCE, AGP, ALC, FAO and PMI. To accommodate all this, 3 additional aircraft will be based at EMA. In all, WW anticipates carrying 350,000 extra passengers next year.

On the 17th June, WW announced EMA-PRG. This will start on the 4th December. Press release: http://www.bmibaby.com/bmibaby/en/index.aspx?p=43&cf=news&ID=438. EZY flies EMA-PRG, but will be ending this. So, will WW’s PRG route effectively replace EZY, or does WW operate the winter-only (it ceases 26th March 2010) service annually?

* VCE and BCN are presently operated by EZY but these will end when it leaves the airport later this year. Consequently, they’re effectively replacing EZY’s services.

How are WW going to carry out such expansion in terms of aircraft? Are they going to move a/c from other bases, or will they use mainline A32Xs?

I can't see them leasing/purchasing an additional 3 737s to cover the expansion; especially in the current conditions, and with the future of WW looking so uncertain under LH (and whoever comes next) ownsership.

Its good to see them reacting quickly though to EZY's withdrawal and taking on the extra business.

Gale force fog... don't you love it?
