Probably a low risk, short-haul, low frequency holiday-focused route. BA has a number of these from LHR.Jump to post
I'm rather surprised they've picked a plane as big as a 737-700 for this route, must have some seats blocked off since the runway in St. Pierre is rather short so it's weight limited. Why not use the CS-300 for this route? It does have the range and probably performs better from the short runway in...Jump to post
Ryanair is now Italy's number-one airline.Jump to post
Hub = passenger connectivity from hub and spoke.
Base = aircraft and crew are based there.
Wizz has a lot of bases, but no hubs.

Airports play a vital role in working with airlines to determine viable routes. That is why there are huge events, such as Routes, that focus on this. And obviously many, many, many meetings between the two parties beyond such events. Airports can often provide key data, knowledge, and info to aid a...Jump to post
LO, LCY and BUD would have all done a lot of analysis on the potential of the route and its likelihood of working. Will it? Who knows. But it's good to wish it well rather than second guess. On a city-pair basis, over 1.5 million flew LON-BUD-LON in 2017, i.e. a PDEW of over 2,000 excluding seasona...Jump to post

I am sure I read somewhere a few months ago, Pegasus a Turkish Ultra Low Cost Carrier, had lower operating costs and better margins than Ryanair. Not according to their annual reports. Pegasus: non-fuel CASK € cents 2.54 and Ryanair 2.10. We'd also need to consider average sector lengths. Pegasus' ...Jump to post
In terms of Australia, I wonder if Ethiopian could become a competitive contender on the Kangaroo Route. According to Great Circle Mapper, LHR-ADD-SYD, at 11,500mi is only 1,000mi more than the great circle route between LHR and SYD. Why would it want to? Very competitive routes (UK-Australia) and ...Jump to post
Look at PDEW per quarter, look at average fares per quarter in itself and in comparison to MCO/TPA, think of how easy it could be to travel on a local basis RSW-DFW/DAL, think of how much demand could be stimulated through nonstop service and lower fares.... Of course, also consider connection traff...Jump to post

The only way to fairly compare fares is to consider average fares (including ancillaries) and their average sector length. These are all obtainable, with a simple calculation, via each airline's annual reports. Based on 2017 and including ancillaries: EZY: GBP£62.90 (about EUR71.70 based on an avera...Jump to post

289,242 flew LTN-CDG-LTN in 2017, up 14% over 2016. That is an average of almost 400 people each way, each day excluding seasonality.
455,425 flew LGW-CDG-LGW in 2017, up 38% over 2016. That is an average of over 600 people each way, each day excluding seasonality.

Ryanair also flew STN-CRL over 10 years' ago. At one point over 100,000 flew it annually, i.e. around 137 passengers daily each way ignoring any seasonality (source: CAA data), but presumably the average fare was simply too low to be sustainable, hence being cut. And before that, around 15 years' ag...Jump to post

Ryanair is, as stated, the main driver of this growth. It went from zero to quite a lot quite quickly. In May 2018, it has 101,000 seats there across 28 routes, meaning it is now the #2 airline in Naples by capacity with an 18% share of seats. easyJet is #1 with 28% and Alitalia #3 with 10%.Jump to post
