Will EZY Expand Their LGW Hub?

Wed Nov 30, 2005 8:44 pm

Hi, does anybody out their know if EZY will expand their hub @ LGW. Maybe the following destinations would suit their LGW hub: GLA, NCL, LPL, ABZ, VIE, SZG, INN, LIS, JER, MST, CPH, ARN, OSL, HEL, CDG, OPO, FNC, IST, LCA, MLA, and Germany. I look forward to your discussons/replys. From Timetable.

They have recently.

LGW-SXF is now operated by SXF based aircraft, freeing an LGW based aircraft to fly elsewhere, perhaps MJV.

TAP fly from LIS and OPO, I think if U2 started these routes, they may focus on LHR.

I can't see them doing LPL; there is too much competition from BA and Jet2 to MAN for them to support another LGW-north West flight; that and VLM also operate to LPL

Would need to be twice a day to LPL, perhaps more viable for FlyBe and their smaller aircraft.

If one more LCC starts just one more flight to Murcia from one more UK airport I think Im going to scream!

Talk about overkill!

I will get myself over there and see how many pensioners are at Murcias estate agents. My goodness, they must be building tower blocks not villas, how else would there be a 500% increase in flights to Murcia in 3 years?

Well isn't it the closest airport to La Manga. The big popularity of that resort, not just to old folks (see all the football clubs who take their players on breaks there) would explain how somewhere that had close to zero flights are getting a lot more now.
Just when I thought I could see light at the end of the tunnel, it was some B*****d with a torch bringing me more work

I wonder if EZY will move in on the "lucrative" Scandinavian market. We Nordic dudes and dudettes travel like crazy on LCCs these days - outsiders must think we have never seen a plane before, haha...  Silly
Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

Go Fly did STN-CPH very early on, now a U2 route.

Maersk or www.sterling.dk have been operating CPH-LGW for a while.

Not sure if there is room for LGW-STO for U2.

Gate space at Gatwick is a problem. Especially at the moment where they are replacing the ground on two or three gates which is also blocking off two gates on the domestic pier because the aircraft need to taxi in over them.

On my Ryanair flight on saturday, our aircraft was parked on stand 11, but we had to go to gate 10 and get a bus across the apron. But even when that is done, i think easyJet base 14 or 15 aircraft at Gatwick currently, all of which overnight and go off at roughly the same time in the morning. Gate space isn't too bad in the winter, but in the summer where there are a lot more charters going off in the morning, it can get a little crowded.

Wouldn't mind a couple of new routes from there though, perhaps Jerez or Bilbao?

Basle could need an early morning flight to Gatwick (or another London airport). The first easyJet flight to London leaves BSL after 10 o'clock. And since easyJet announced that they want improve their services for business customers ex BSL (and since the current London routes work well) I think it could be possible.
