London Heathrow in FLAP: still busier than Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Paris CDG, but far fewer destinations
We have one of our free, downloadable spreadsheets to accompany this week’s lead story which compares the global networks of Europe’s four leading hub airports. Which airport offers the most destinations in Africa, Latin America, China, India, Russia, the UK and the USA?
Italy again featured high in the airport prizes – Venice Marco Polo for the most new carriers, while Bari and Trapani both secured Traffic Growth Prizes. Moscow Domodedovo gained the Most New Routes, while Istanbul Atatürk and Schiphol share the valuable title for Most New Non-European Routes.
While tourism takes a turn for the worse in neighbouring Tunisia, Libya will welcome more flights from Western Europe this summer. But which routes are already served and which non-Libyan airlines are already present in the country?
ItAli Airlines launches routes to Rome FCO versus Alitalia using MD-82s; first Sukhoi Superjet coming in 2011
Who knew that a little-known Italian carrier was the first in Western Europe to order Sukhoi Superjets? In the mean time the carrier has launched three domestic routes (and one international) using MD-82s. We take a closer look.
Barcelona El Prat now fastest growing of Europe’s major airports; Copenhagen and Rome also up more than 10%
With 10 months of data for 2010 we take a closer look at how Europe’s top 16 airports have performed year-on-year. Which is the only one not to have grown in any month so far this year? And which two airports just escaped this fate thanks to October growth?
easyJet is growing faster than usual this winter. Which country markets and airports will see most new flights compared with last winter, and which are the nine new airports to see orange aircraft this winter?
easyJet’s Paris base is growing. Which new routes have been added this summer from CDG? And which new routes have been added from Orly? What new routes will be starting this winter? And which are the only destinations served from both bases?
London Heathrow still attracting new services; bmi, China Airlines and Kingfisher celebrate route launches; British Airways now serves 104 destinations
A busy week for London Heathrow, but what changes has the airport seen regarding its global network in the last two years? Quite a lot it turns out. And how does the airport’s portfolio of routes compare with its European hub rivals? Not well, and getting worse.
Despite easyJet’s best efforts Air France still dominates both major Parisian airports. How does it split its operations between CDG and Orly and what competition does it face on domestic routes? Which country markets are best served from CDG and which international routes does it operate from Orly?
Now more than twice as busy as Orly, CDG is rapidly catching Heathrow in passenger numbers. Over 90% of the traffic is on international routes with Air France dominating domestic feed. How dominant is the national carrier on international routes and what share do LCCs have? And which unlikely long-haul markets make it into the top 10?
We take a look at 16 of Europe’s leading airports and examine how their traffic has been developing during 2007. Among the major hubs Madrid has had a fantastic year with 15% while Heathrow has struggled match its 2006 performance. Two Scandinavian hubs have seen only modest growth while Vienna is surging ahead thanks to SkyEurope.
The UK government has just revealed plans for a possible third runway and sixth terminal at Heathrow. But will it be enough to keep London ahead of its euro hub rivals? Madrid is the fastest growing and Paris and Frankfurt have big plans too. We speculate as to who might reach the 100 million target first.
