These are:

AOC
KRK
SVQ
TSF
VLL
VST
VXO

From: www.TheAirDB.com

Nice to see more Spanish domestic routes: ALC-SVQ and ALC-VLL.

Including these 7, FR will operate 49 routes from its ALC base including 7 domestic routes (VLL, SVQ, MAD, PMI, SDR, SCQ, ZAZ).

Apparantly, FR have found that they can (profitably) fill 738s from virtually any airfield to ALC. Even the tiniest airports in their network (NQY, VXO, NOC, LDY) have or will have flights to ALC.

Their ALC network has been built up extremely fast; it's almost the size of the network from GRO, but GRO needed a longer time to expand to the network it offers now.

Wonder if they will add any flights to the Canary Islands?

Although there is still the question of what will happen
after March 2010 when the 0% tax was due to finish....

Will RYR depart ACE and LPA or continue....



from the Island with sun and great photo's.. Why not visit Lanzarote

Quoting Joost (Reply 1):

Not surprising considering the proximity of the popular Costa Blanca - which explains why it has flights "from virtually any airfield" - but also the size of the metro area - 750,000+ - and that the city is one of the fastest-growing in Spain.

If AGP, which presently has 20 FR routes, becomes a base, it could undoubtedly grow as fast or faster than ALC, with routes "from virtually any airfield."

Of course. Still, I would like to see what the split between inbound and outbound traffic is. I wouldn't be surprised if it's 70% inbound / 30% outbound. Of course, the percentages will differ between routes; AGP-MAD will have a different profile than AGP-NOC.

No doubt about that. It will be interesting to see what happens once the new AGP terminal opens.

Absolutely on both.

Interesting times indeed!

More details have become available:

3 new aircraft will be added to the ALC base (currently 6, so up to 9 aircraft).

All new routes start with the IATA summer season, so from 30 March '10.

Weekly frequencies:
AOC: 2
KRK: 3
SVQ: 4
VXO: 2
VST: 2
VLL: 3
TSF: 3

Increased frequencies on existing routes:
BLL: 5
CRL: 10
BRE: 4
EMA: 7 (not surprising as U2 is withdrawing)
PIK: 5
GSE: 4
HAU: 3
PSA: 2
NYO: 7

Recently introduced routes to EIN and HHN will continue.

Indeed. And EMA is my local airport - roughly a 15-minute drive away.

Quoting Joost (Reply 7):
VST: 2

You could argue that this service is principally for those for whom VST is their local airport, but it also means that the Stockholm area to ALC will have 9 weekly flights with FR.

There is so much spare capacity for rental accomodation on the Costa del Sol that the regional government in Seville, or the diputación in Málaga should be falling over themselves to get FR to bring more flights to AGP. I suppose AGP's geographical position means that sector lengths will always be that much longer than FR's average (cutting down sectors per a/c per day) but surely you could fill an FR B738 from any tiny aerodrome in Europe to AGP, at least in Summer...

Indeed, hence the high likelihood of AGP becoming a base at some point. As Joost said:
