How Are Seasonal Routes Chosen?

Thu Oct 05, 2006 5:48 pm

Hey all I was just wondering how airlines choose seasonal destinations. Specifically, I saw that US Airways did a PHL-ARN route this summer. Is this a one-time thing or is this a permanent seasonal route? Are they just testing to see how well it does? If anyone can shed some light on this that would be very helpful.

Any other notable seasonal routes that you've taken in the past would be interesting to hear about.

Thanks!

Seasonal demand really. Demand for skiing in winter, U2 do a few LON-GVA flights on Saturdays.
Demand for trips to IBZ is high in summer, low in winter, and the flight timings can be poor.
