WN @ BWI - A Few Questions

Wed Aug 04, 2004 3:08 am

Is WN planning to increase or decrease its frequency on any route from BWI, or to begin any new route whenever from the Maryland airport?

How are WN’s flights from BWI to ISP, BDL and PVD performing in terms of loads, yields and profits?

Any news whatever from BWI concerning WN?

Cheers and all the best,

James.

James,

It's my understanding that once the new A pier is complete, allowing WN to occupy A and B, that the airline will have the gate space to look at adding new routes and increased frequencies. WN is around 160 fights a day here and I remember past discussions on the topic had people looking at nearly doubling that after the expansion. The A pier is set to open this spring and is coming along nicely. When I was at the airport last week a few of the jetbridges were installed at the gates, and it appeared that most of the external work was completed. When finished the piers will give WN 26 gates total, more if they continue to use the 8 (I believe) gates they use now on C pier.

Hope this helped.

Thanks a lot, Mainland!

Really? If this is true and it does indeed happen, any ideas of new cities? What frequency increases would result on current routes?

Thanks,

James.

Whoops. I went back through some old A.net topics to try and find where I saw that figure about WN expansion. I found this:

http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/1483018/4/

So it looks like I was off, 200 is the figure. Anyone with better/more recent info would be great. Regardless, I'd expect the expansion would come more flights to the west as well as the always on the horizon new WN destination(s).
