Is flydubai flying any routes from DWC at the moment?Jump to post
Pobeda is starting service to DXB. I found it pretty surprising it’s not DWC since Pobeda often serves secondary airports, and its parent Aeroflot is present at both airports.Jump to post
Why should the Commission particularly focus on Eastern Europe? Shouldn’t the rules be the same for all countries and airlines involved? What about Alitalia, which is in my opinion the most obvious example of an airline kept alive by state support? Because in Eastern Europe / Balkans there are a lo...Jump to post
Probably the consequence of Adria being given €4.5 million subsidy to fly Ljubljana - Brussels I don't really understand why the European Commission does not look after all those carriers in Eastern Europe that are heavily subsidised by their governments (corruption & nepotism 101). Why should ...Jump to post

Still, if not Q400's than E170's or get Regional Jet to operate ATR's Word on the street is, Regional Jet will be operating a double-digit amount of E195-s on behalf of LO starting 2020. Regional Jet confirmed it will have “more than one” Embraer by summer 2020. https://majandus24.postimees.ee/6739...Jump to post
The Dash-8 have quite a reputation ín Hungary from the times Malév operated it. And not a positive one. I am afraid Dashes don't have a stellar reputation anywhere. Still, if not Q400's than E170's or get Regional Jet to operate ATR's I just hope that if the whole "second hub in BUD" expe...Jump to post
I am a bit surprised they are starting those new regional destinations from BUD with E195’s and not Q400’s. For example PRG - LO will serve it from their hub in WAW with Q400’s and with E195’s from BUD. If they feel constrained by lack of gates/slots in WAW they should upgauge the aircraft. If they ...Jump to post

CSA doesn't operate any flights to N. America so they might be willing to work with EK to feed their flight to BOS/ORD.Jump to post
It is highly speculative, but out of the two I would bet on BOS because of the connections onto JetBlueJump to post
Among things that have changed since LO stopped flying to Hanoi is their route network. Take Germany for example - this time around LO could offer connections not only to FRA, MUC, HAM, DUS* but also to STR, BER, HAJ, NUE - which previously weren’t available. (* I am not 100% sure LO at the time of ...Jump to post
I am really surprised to see that Georgian Airlines have the rights to operate between Yerevan and Moscow. Some media reports are inaccurate, stating that Georgian airlines are banned from flying into Russia: https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/06/russia-suspends-georgian-airline-flights-july-8-190...Jump to post

As per president Putin’s decision all flights between Georgia and Russia are now banned.
Who will capture most of the traffic between those countries?
My guess would be Belavia and Turkish, and probably to lesser extent Air Baltic and Azerbaijan Airlnes.
I guess that if they could LO would increase PEK to daily, before starting flights to PKX. Probably Chinese side didn’t allow that to protect Air China’s PEK-WAW flights (with so much traffic leaving for PKX getting slots at PEK couldn’t be the issue). Beijing is the 5th city for LO in which they se...Jump to post
The growth of low cost carriers in Ukraine is not only fueled by people visiting the country but also by large number of Ukrainians who are working abroad to support their families back home.

Silly stunt would be flying between DXB and DWC And still it's not the closest possible. That would be Sharjah (SHJ) which is closer to Dubai (DXB) than Dubai World Central (DWC). Dubai to Dubai World Central is 24 nautical miles, Dubai to Sharjah is 9 nautical miles. And didn't Emirates fly the A3...Jump to post
I would definitely bet on ZRH. As for the third route MUC or HAM.Jump to post

I don’t think that KLM needs it for such a purpose.
KLM’s unions are much more reasonable and flexible than others (Air France etc.)
Schiphol slots are too valuable to use them for feeder flights on such small aircraft.

Interesting. Does the E190 is economicly more interesting to operate than the Q400? Does anyone have the average range of LGW flights?

I’d love for you to show me where the “city completely surrounded the airport”.

Additional factor why bus boarding is more common in Europe and Asia might be the wider use of turboprops. (Are there any airports where you can board an ATR or Q400 via a jetbridge?) Btw.
