Ryanair are now loading their summer 2022 flights onto their system, I wonder if there will be anything extra for CWL.

Given Ryanair's track record for this summer anything they might come up with for summer 2022 should only be pencilled in lightly. There are instances at a number of airports where a summer 2021 route, or routes in some cases, have come, gone, come, gone, come and so the not so merry-go-round turns.

It seems that Ryanair might be returning to the bad old days of a decade ago when travellers could only be reasonably confident of the accuracy of a summer's programme when the season actually started.

There is a tread on twitter this morning from a concerned Ryanair pilot who is convince there is going to be a slashing of pilots over the next few weeks.

I really hope this isnt the case but he seemed really worried. I know its twitter but there maybe a grain of truth in it.

Ryanair have pushed back the start of Barcelona and Malaga until July. Faro looks like it'll be operating in June as it's onsale.

The 'like' is for the information, not the fact that the delay has been pushed back.

I don't think that's unusual at the moment. Seat selectors suggest a number of BRS flights to the sun have had load factors under 50%, sometimes well under.

Flew back from glasgow two days again via bristol on easyjet - full flight both ways.
A lot of people are sticking with domestic holidays so I'm not surprised.
In recent weeks loads from BRS to EDI, GLA and BFS have been high with up to four return flights daily. This should augur well for Loganair's new CWL-EDI route.

Ryanair have been operating sparsely filled flights across their much reduced flight programme through most of the pandemic, although their UK-eastern/central European routes have been very well filled recently. So lightly-loaded sun flights in the current situation are certainly not limited to CWL.

Seen a few complaints about high prices on the EDI route with Loganair so hopefully that augers well for loads!

I'm seeing Ryanair launching a lot of new routes lately and just get the sad feeling that CWL is missing out. They just announced a new base at Newcastle as well.

Nothing for Exeter either and Bristol hasn't seen any growth - one new route to Riga balanced by the loss of Malta. At the moment it seems that the south-west corner of Britain is not a major focus for Ryanair growth, but things can quickly change.

Yes it does seem that way, at Bristol has had Malta replaced at least CWL hasn't unfortunately. I think the blow for CWL is that we won't see Ryanair during the winter now that is disappointing.

When the Welsh Government are advising in a tweet this last hour for everyone in Wales to holiday at home this year and to avoid non essential air travel, this sends out a pretty clear message to airlines that they will be better off basing aircraft where they can maximise revenue.
