Interesting that there appears to be not enough demand for a winter sun charter, season may be too short and flight sector too long.
I think the travel companies who specialise in "winter sun" have plenty of their own metal to operate the flights operating from their usual bases. BA
's charter work appears almost exclusively to be weekend use of otherwise unutilised slots and aircraft, operating either from LHR
Additionally "winter sun" appears to be a very low yield operation, I doubt they do much more than cover the direct costs of the flight and hotel, certainly not enough fat to pay for BA
operating from LHR
. Skiing is entirely different, the clients are spending far more money, and likely to want the convenience of a LHR
