A bit of an odd schedule but much needed good news for GLA:

Air Nostrum launches new Madrid route

I wonder if this route is going to be used by Iberdola, Gamesa and to a certain extent Santander? Strange schedule but hope to see an increase should the route be a success.

Prices start from £640 one way just now. Ridiculous.

Where from?

I was looking on the Iberia website around an hour ago. If it really is that price i might try and get myself on the inaugural trip.

Ah yeah, if you try one way you get £640 but return gives you £130.

You reckon it will work?

Not with those schedules - but if Iberdola and Gamesa are using it along with some form of route deal, who knows.

Who knows what will work, or what won't. Always hard to predict. Decent yields will likely be the test though.

Certainly shows that IAG are looking at boosting the MAD hub, including from the UK. Good news.

OMG.....!!!
The CRJ900/1000 would have been much more suitable I guess. I think the CRJ200 is more suitable for domestic flights in Spain.

Air Nostrum operated to EDI a few years back, although it was only during august, and I think it lasted a year, maybe two max.

Edinburgh is very popular with Spanish students during the summer, coming over to find work in hotels and restaurants, I am sure Glasgow will probably see similar demand. This isnt particularly high yielding though, hopefully there is enough business demand to keep yields up.



That'll teach you

Nice to see Iberia/Air Nostrum expanding into routes that could provide connecting traffic

im guessing this is perhaps the start of that expansion, coming from IAG, to help feed and grow the Madrid hub.

Doomed from the start, there are no other inbound succesful city routes operated from GLA and to start this one in Winter is just nuts. Glad to be wrong though but this one just seems....unusual (!)

Ever the optomist. This is purely down to banking contracts and will grumble along quite nicely. The OW component may also add to it.

Excellent news for Glasgow. Can't imagine the route will do well over winter though.
If this is successful, does this mean we may see other european carriers in GLA, such as LH, AF or LX?

What banks in Glasgow???? I watched every route into GLA of this nature fail for reasons documented well on here. I did live in Glasgow for a decade so not unfamiliar. Less than daily is no use for business and starting in winter is wierd.

I was wondering the same. I think it is more likely geared towards Iberdrola/Scottish Power/Gamesa.

2 weekly on a 50 seater, must be contract related. GLA in the whole scheme of things is a poor city with minimal need for European connections (KL the only option, can't sustain BD to LHR?). EDI would have been better based on its current mix of traffic, AF, LH and KL...

Glasgow is poor, the GLA catchment area not so much. It's just a pretty particular and highly seasonal market. It's a very long way on a cramped aircraft as well.

Nope, nor would I if there was a more comfortable option. I fly MAN-LHR in one and that's about far enough thanks very much. Unless there is a corporate tie up with a gauranteed number of bums on seat per day this will fail. Given the markets know fascination with all things sunny and Spanish, it's not even aiming for the weekend away crowd at the leisure end and can't really help the man in the suit heading to MAD on business at twice weekly.
