Lille "suffers" from the proximity of BRU
, both about one hour away by TGV.While the greater Lille area houses many companies,the area is less attractive for seasonal and tourist travels ( like MPL
Proximity of the highspeed-train to/from London pull away additional airline-clients.
I see unused potential for LCC's in following areas :
Croatia ( Split,Doubrovnik,Rijeka )
Slovenija ( Lubljiana )
Germany ( Nuremberg,Bremen )
France ( Montpellier,Nantes,Bordeaux,Marseille,Perpigan )
Spain ( Madrid ,Sevilla ,Asturia )
Italy ( Genoa,Bari,Naples,)
Greece ( Thessaloniki,Heraklion,Corfou )
Belgium ( Brussels - not Charleroi ,Ostend )
Sweden ( Gothenburg )
Finnland ( Turku,Helsinki )
Netherlands ( Eindhoven ,Groningen )
All North Africa ( I know it's nor EEC but the potential is hughe !! )
Turkey ( Istanbul,Antalya,Ankara,Izmir )
Portugal ( Lisbon and the Algarve deserve more flights )
All this is obviously un-scientific but based on observation on various airline-forums throughout Europe.
