This seems like an odd route for Czech to fly.
CSA's long-haul route network is quite odd as a whole.
Does anyone know the history behind this route?
-CMB route has been in operation for something like 2 years. This year they've extended it to MLE.
How does it perform?
This is only hearsay, but the route is (was?) supposedly a great success story. I wonder what the future of this route will be. I'm not able to support my statement with numbers. Sorry.
Where is the demand for this coming from?
mainly Czech travel agencies and I think CSA is successfully marketing the route outside of the Czech Rep.
Technically the flights are c/s as DL
flights as well, but how many pax this generates, I don't know.
