We interview Dean Boljuncic about EIN’s development + future. The airport’s one-hour catchment has 7 million people + a 20% higher GDP than the Dutch avg.
W20 looks to be a bumper one for Palm Springs, despite – or because of – coronavirus. This builds on the airport passing three million seats last year.
We look into the drivers of Kathmandu’s fast growth and see four key domestic airlines are responsible. ‘Three Ds’ lead Kathmandu’s international network.
We look at Bamboo Airways’ plan for Melbourne – Hanoi, which is the largest unserved market between Australia and Vietnam and Hanoi’s #1 unserved market globally.
American Airlines’ growth at Daytona Beach will almost double the airport’s network. It’ll also mean it connects it to 40 destinations over Dallas, growing AA’s penetration to these from its present ¼.
These 15 airports had 126 million seats last year, down 22 million vs. 2010. Yet since 2015, 13 have been clawing back capacity, with seats up 9.5 million.
We explore American’s Arizona hub, its sixth-largest, at which it’ll have 98 routes this winter. We see no growth vs. 2010, but high seats per frequency.
Amsterdam busiest in Europe with 835 daily flights, Eurocontrol shows; we explore Schiphol’s network
Amsterdam is fighting back. KLM had 35 routes with 3+ daily flights on 21 August. Of all regions, we see that Latin America is very strong, with this region the least affected.
American Airlines’ (briefly?) cut 15 airports had 1.7 million seats last year; Roswell would lose most
American Airlines had 19 routes from these 15 airports with 37 daily flights. Roswell was #1 by seats and was only served by American. We explore connections on the shortest route, Florence – Charlotte.
This service comes about from being the largest market from Norfolk to the West Coast, strong YOY traffic growth, high average fare, and 95% SLF from last year’s nine-week trial.
San Jose has grown very strongly, with Southwest, Alaska, and Delta primarily accounting for this. We examine what’s been happening.
With Breeze starting scheduled ops next May, we think about its network and look at 4 underserved US cities that could have 66+ routes with between 2 and 5 weekly flights.
