Just got a twitter message from Easyjet stating that from 27 March 11 they will be flying to Amman Jordan from LGW.

Nothing on their site as yet to do with schedule. The twitter message says prices from £106 return inc taxes.

Who else serves the London-Amman route? Just RJ?

My wife and I have a Jordanian friend, so we might well have to utilise that new service...

Not sure if BA is happy with more competition in it's routes too.
VRN and BLQ, not sure if ADB is on their 2011 summer schedule.

EZY and FR will compete on the SVQ route.

EZY and BE will compete on the ABZ route

They will also increase flights to MAD, BCN, OPO, DUS and AMS.

"EasyJet
After listening to your route suggestions, we are excited to announce SIX new routes from London Gatwick in 2011. These include direct flights to Amman in Jordan, Izmir in Turkey, Verona and Bologna in Italy, Seville in Spain and Aberdeen in Scotland! Seats go on sale today with flights operating from March 2011. We have also increased the frequency of flights to Madrid, Barcelona, Düsseldorf, Porto and Amsterdam"

SVQ is a former GT route, not sure If XRY might have been better instead of going up against FR, probably reduces the chances of Vueling flights SVQ-LGW.

I noticed that Vueling SVQ-LHR flights finish in March 11.
Are these flights coming back next winter?
La Coruna, Bilbao and Galicia will stay.

Any idea where the slots for these flights are coming from, have they rearranged their schedule or are these new slots?

Quoting kl911 (Reply 10):

I expect them to use the A320. Theoretically, the A319's maximum range exceeds the A320's maximum range, but this is not the case for easyJet.

Their A319s lack the center fuel tank and use derated engines, and therefore their range is nowhere near the maximum 6,700km range published by Airbus.

Their A320s do have the center tank and higher rated engines, and are more suitable for medium-haul ops. easyJet's longer flights, like Egypt and Israel, are exclusively flown by A320s.

What will be the increase to AMS? 1 daily extra?

AMS will be 5x daily during weekdays next summer, which is an increase over summer 2010, where is was 4x daily. However, the frequency already got increased to 5x daily last month, at the start of the winter 2010-2011 season, so it's not really an increase compared to the current situation.

Also, the 4x daily during the summer of 2010 was actually a reduction compared to 2009, when they also flew 5x daily. So essentially they'll just be back at their original level.

LGW-BLQ

FR seems to drop the route after March 30, so easyJet will step in that void. FR will continue 1x daily flights STN-BLQ, though.

In direct competition with BA - one of their better performing routes from LGW too.

Quoting santos (Reply 3):
LGW-BLQ

Also in direct competition with BA, but filling the low cost void left by FR in March 2011.

Quoting santos (Reply 3):
LGW-SVQ

In direct competition with FR.

Quoting santos (Reply 3):
LGW-ADB

BA dropped this route in October 2010 - so U2 will fill the gap, yet again.

Quoting santos (Reply 3):
LGW-ABZ

In direct competition with BE, also a former BA route.

It seems BA is disappearing from the LGW map...



Next flights: LGW-LBA-LGW, LHR-SIN-SYD, SYD-BKK-LHR, LGW-GRO, GRO-CIA, CIA-MAD, MAD-LGW

Just booked my first trip to Jordan, Thanks to easyjet, BMI has always been expensive for my budget.
This trip was only £117 with a bag / BMI £475 for exactly same trip.

Am surprised BA has not launched LHR-AMM, codesharing with RJ ex-LHR and offering connections to RJ at AMM.

Hi all!

It seems that EZY it's opening a new destination here in SCQ, on their route map now shows a flight to GVA.
No tickets on sale, but it's good news to have this service.
Hopefully more to come from EZY here in SCQ, now that FR it's closing all their international flights here.

interesting that the new route map list countries that they dont fly to yet. The old one never did.
I wonder whether flights to norway and russia could be on the cards, maybe even saudi although i imagine that would be a stretch
