When was the last time we had a new airline?

Vienna bookable on the Ryanair website starting October 29 and operates 3x weekly (Tue/Thu/Sat) so complements Eurowings' current schedule (Mon/Wed/Fri/Sun).

VIE 1740 BHX 1905

Blimey, didn't see that one coming.

Eurowings loads haven't exactly set the world on fire so it will be an interesting one to watch.

The one to watch is RYANAIR since they are exploring the possibility of creating a low-cost version of IAG. Domination can end badly. Ryanair Sun becoming the new Buzz, LaudaMotion? Who is next? Will we see Greybull Holidays resurrect Monarch?

great to finally see a new airline starting ops at BHX!

Interesting choice Vienna, as the flights are bookable via the Ryanair website, will the take up be better than Eurowings?

And how will Eurowings react? I hope it doesnt see them leave, but cant help but think these new flights might mean the end to their flights?

Hopefully the start of a new low cost era at BHX ??

Unless BHX is to become a new base ? :unsure:
Never really thought of that, I guess it's not beyond Ryanair to create another UK AOC for their subsidiary.

If they don't use the Eurohub they might have parking space to do so if they wanted.

I’m wondering if this route does well if Austrian Airlines will then start at Vienna flight at all? But happy at last we are finally getting a route to Vienna but let’s hope Luada (Austrian Ryanair) does well and isn’t anything like Ryanair Ryanair.
