I wonder if many of those passengers who would look to book at Bristol would instead end up going to Luton and Gatwick and still flying with Easyjet especially if they are purchasing through the Easyjet website.There will still be people wanting to fly this week to destinations where flights are already sold out, so they will either go to another airline or to another airport (or both).
Some might but I'd have thought that the majority would be looking at somewhere closer; either at BRS with another airline if there is one or at another airport relatively locally, which means EXT, CWL or BHX. Next week Ryanair is also sold out on four of its next five Krakow departures up to and including Christmas Eve along with easyJet being sold out on the route next week too, so very little scope there for an alternative local carrier at BRS.I wonder if many of those passengers who would look to book at Bristol would instead end up going to Luton and Gatwick and still flying with Easyjet especially if they are purchasing through the Easyjet website.
I suppose it's the fact that opportunities elsewhere might make more money. I wonder if the demise of Monarch at MAN which has led to a lot of easyJet growth there has affected growth that otherwise might have occurred at BRS.I keep banging the drum too. I honestly could see another couple of based aircraft just to boost frequencies on key routes year round. Not sure other than yields why they do not
I went to Stockholm a couple of weeks ago from Bristol with easyJet .it was a 319 but it was completely full both ways . There must still be scope for a lot of expansion within the existing routes from Bristol especially the ones that are only once or twice a week
I would imagine it's a continuing theme with the airport, any airport probably, to push for increased frequencies and new routes with existing carriers as well as looking at new airlines who, particularly in BRS's case given their stated policy, would not compromise the existing carriers.I wonder whether the airport is trying to get easyJet to up frequencies. Even new winter routes such as Catania have sold out this week. Incidentally most of Ryanair’s routes are also sold out
Is Geneva the most popular destination from BRS? I'd have thought that would be Alicante or Edinburgh?
The press release speaks of easyJet's busiest route but it's certainly not Geneva.That’s a bit odd isn’t it. It’s not even double daily is it ?
Maybe it was just a subtle way of giving the Geneva route a plug?In 2017 easyJet carried 226,500 of the 232,800 Geneva passengers, the rest being weekly ski charter flights. GVA is more popular in the ski season than in summer. As Marko points out, easyJet is not even double-daily in summer (10 x weekly with two rotations on just three days each week). In the ski season easyJet operates up to 22 x weekly rotations with six rotations on some Saturdays.
The following Sunday better still - over 100 seats taken so far. Still well below easyJet's average at BRS and well below other BRS easyJet ski destinations in the next week.Ostersund looking much better this Sunday
