289,242 flew LTN-CDG-LTN in 2017, up 14% over 2016. That is an average of almost 400 people each way, each day excluding seasonality.
455,425 flew LGW-CDG-LGW in 2017, up 38% over 2016. That is an average of over 600 people each way, each day excluding seasonality.

Ryanair also flew STN-CRL over 10 years' ago. At one point over 100,000 flew it annually, i.e. around 137 passengers daily each way ignoring any seasonality (source: CAA data), but presumably the average fare was simply too low to be sustainable, hence being cut. And before that, around 15 years' ag...Jump to post

Ryanair is, as stated, the main driver of this growth. It went from zero to quite a lot quite quickly. In May 2018, it has 101,000 seats there across 28 routes, meaning it is now the #2 airline in Naples by capacity with an 18% share of seats. easyJet is #1 with 28% and Alitalia #3 with 10%.Jump to post

I always find F9 route announcements to be disappointing, most because of the low frequency and the fact that routes seem to come and go regularly with them. I had really hoped for a B6 announcement to BOS. What do you really expect when connecting thin routes? At least they'll have non-stop service.Jump to post
China Southern will add 2 extra weekly services from Guangzhou (where its hub is located) to London/Heathrow with a stop in Sanya. So Sanya will be the latest non-stop link from China to the UK.

LCY-JMK/PMI/JTR/JSI/FAO/MAH/CMF/SIR.

I wonder what Flydubai means by the similar DNA to Helsinki . HEL is kind of an oddball in Europe, a middle sized hub relying heavily on Asia.

When Ryanair announced that it was acquiring some of Laudamotion, it said it'll be leasing 6 planes with crew to them. This will probably just be a temporary measure.
https://www.rte.ie/news/business/2018/0 ... ion-stake/
Why would Ryanair need Laudamotion to get into eastern Europe? They have been flying there for many years now. Just look at their presence from Estonia in the north to the Balkans in the south. Much easier to penetrate certain parts of the market using a different brand. The Lauda name has a certai...Jump to post

This is totally insane, their losses grow faster than their traffic but they are still pushing more gas to pedal.

See the Norwegian financials thread. The more they grow the more they lose. Doesn't answer it. He was exceptionally precise: "They need 680 on board to break even."
