I would like to see LBC - EIN too but that route mght be too short.
Air Exel used to operate EIN
on Embraer EMB-120 Brasilia aircraft, seating 30 passengers. Due to Philips- and related-traffic, this did work. However, I do not see them filling 189 passengers a day: both are not real touristic attractions and when you avoid peak hours you can drive from Eindhoven to Hamburg in 5 hours (without tolls), so VFR-traffic will not be too high either.
From Eindhoven, I suppose that expansion will be mostly aimed at tourist destinations for the Dutch (Italy & Spain) and perhaps one or two polish destionations - as the Dutch will issue work permits for all EU-citizens starting year, we will likely see an increase of people from poland, the baltics, hungary, etc., that will increase traffic.
My guess list for EIN
- Some other Italian destionation
- One or two of Murcia / Granada / Sevilla / Jerez / Seville
- Krakow (or Rzeszow)
Another airport that are 'hot' for a base is NRN
(Dusseldorf Weeze), however, I might think that once Eindhoven is a base, NRN
might be too close (1:15 drive between both airports) to start a base from too.
Apart from this, it is just guessing
