Actually, EI flies to BOJ, which is just slightly farther east than ADB.

Why ADB? Why not a more prominent city like IST or ESB?

Why ADB?

Probably Irish holidaymakers coming along the western coast especially to Kusadasi. I strongly believe this is seasonal...

Yes this was posted in the Turkish aviation thread.

Choice of Izmir? Certainly due to tourism.

I agree. TK already fly five days a week to Istanbul.

EI wouldnt do well at IST at all! TK carry very few passengers just DUB-IST they would carry more onwards to ADB. Alot of people are saying this woul be seasonal only but I could see it doing aswell in the winter espeically around christmas.

Thanks giving to the fact that Antalya is the most popular holiday destination in Turkey it makes us wonder that Izmir is chosen.

Me too. I just had to read on!!

I guess their marketing people know what they are doing and think they may have found a niche.

Absolutely. Back in the Willie Walsh era EI did quite a few charter ops to ADB for the Irish tour operators.

According to the CSO passenger movements over the last year Dublin to Antalya had 9909 passengers and Dublin to Izmir had 45046 passengers and Dublin to Bodrum had 13615 passengers so the figures explain why Izmir was selected.

That says it all!! I think (and hope) that this route should be quite successful for EI. Turkey is a massively popular holiday destination amongst the Irish with quite a lot of people even owning a second home over there. Wouldn't be surprised if it were to be continued year round. The only thing is that it is a pretty long flight to be on without any sort of IFE/wi-fi etc so that might be something EI might want to look into.



Come with me, there's a place I want you to see, where the leaves are dark, I've got a hiding place in central park.

Question answered; that makes excellent sense.

I didn't even think of that until you mentioned it! Lost my sense of humor apparently...

Of course by "Turkey" it does not need to be a frozen bird, substitute any eejit of your choice.
Maybe MOL in EI 's case

Bird was named after the country, incase some people didnt know, that said Turkey's actual name is Turkiye as in Tur-ki-yey.
