Well the airline industry is to be hit hard once again due to the covid 19 lockdown. Easyjet will operate their flights as it is up till thursday. They wont be doing any flights between UK airports and the foreign airports will be cut out a lot. Airports around the world is not known who will accept flights from the UK as things seem to be on the change often.Easyjet were due to operate 30% of their flights in november but that will be cut back.

Not UK. England. Once Wales, Scotland and NI come out of their lockdown international departures should be allowed.

They cancelled internal flights last time and they have said they will do the same as last time with Scotland and Northern Ireland. They cancel flights at the drop of a hat.

November/early December lockdown

easyJet appear to be operating EDI and BFS, both at 4 x weekly, during the lockdown but no GLA or INV.

I don't usually do multiple posts but I'm aware that not everyone reads every forum on F4A and because easyJet is of such importance to BRS I've copied below a post I made to the easyJet Airline forum today.


easyJet's first ever annual loss - £1.27 billion year ending 30 September 2020.

A summary of the main points:

1. Expected to fly just 20% of normal capacity into next year.

2. The airline welcomed news of vaccine as underlying demand for air travel is strong - bookings rose nearly 50% when news of the vaccine was made public last week.

3. The pandemic has put great pressure on easyJet's finances forcing it to take on more debt, ask shareholders for extra cash and sell more aircraft.

4. The airline's CEO believes that in the near future easyJet should not need more than the £3 billion already raised. Unsurprisingly as he is the CEO he is bullish about the current situation.

According to one business analyst the next few months will be testing ones with easyJet having to 'navigate its way through a lengthy winter saddled with considerable debt'. She said the airline management had 'administered some tough medicine' including a cut in staffing levels and flying its aircraft slower to reduce the fuel bill. However, she believes there is optimism in that if easyJet can negotiate the difficult winter it could really surge in the second half of 2021 with pent up demand for foreign holidays.

I remember reading an article several weeks ago that suggested that easyJet would need a strong 2021 if it was to survive. Clearly the need is for countries to be able to relax entry restrictions and a vaccine or vaccines will probably be the key.

I could see them adding some based aircraft to block up stands and stunt any Jet2 growth maybe?

Seems a strange time for easyJet to go in for major expansion at some airports: unknown Covid effects on traffic in the next few years and a reduction in fleet size, unless they are retrenching to fewer airports (beyond the three UK base closures announced earlier this year).

Given that the industry seems to believe that it will be 2023 at the earliest before passenger traffic returns to 2019 levels airlines will either be flying aircraft with lower loads or they won't need as many in the next year or two.

If BRS doesn't get back to near 2019 levels until 2023 then there should not be a problem with aircraft parking until then by which time the airport will have known whether it's stuck indefinitely at 10 mppa or can expand.

If the former they probably won't need any more stands. If the latter although there is no mention of additional stands in the planning application that was rejected early this year the 2011 planning consents gave planning permission for extra stands - some of the consents in that planning approval were outline consents. A number of stands have been built since 2011 and if the airport is successful with its appeal it would be satisfied it had the means to ensure there were sufficient stands to handle 12 mppa.

Going back to the poster on the Dried Plum, I have no idea where he/she came by the information about easyJet expansion at BRS because there is no reference. A Google search throws up nothing.

I have seen a rumour that they are going to close Liverpool and I generally can see them retrenching to bases like Bristol.

Having a quick glance at next summers schedule I still make it 18 based aircraft on a Saturday. I know there’s plenty of time for that to change but nevertheless it’s promising given easyJet’s claim of passenger confidence

I think their latest sale might have helped with an uplift in bookings! I booked Bristol to Berlin for £24.99 one way in May. From what I've seen of prices on that route that's extremely cheap.

That's a positive statement in that they appear intent on at least consolidation next summer in terms of their programme although of course, as with all airlines and airports, it will depend on the virus situation then.
