I know, Zurich, Basel, Munich, Nurnberg and Hamburg are in the run.
What I wanted to say is that Basel was never on their list and Germanwings is saying they want a hub in ZRH
since they are flying there. But nothing happens there so obviously something stops them from opening a hub in ZRH
A lot of LCCs preferred going into ZRH
instead of BSL
and said that, although BSL
would be better in terms of fees, there is more demand in ZRH
. In the recent months easyJet proofed that costs are indeed low in BSL
but that there is also great demand. Therefore I think BSL
is in a good shape at the moment.
Also I think that easyJet is mentioning too much in their press release that they move flights from ZRH
which is not true. ZRH
are two seperate markets. Not much people from ZRH
will use the flights from BSL
. It is more an increase in services to BSL
because the current daily STN
service leaves full every afternoon.
