Marseille’s growth driven by Ryanair’s international routes; TGV took one million air passengers on Paris route
The opening of Europe’s first dedicated low-cost terminal in late 2006 has helped Marseille attract several LCCs. Ryanair now flies to more destinations than Air France but where has it failed to make an impression? How significant is the North African market?
This week’s new routes are provided by Aer Lingus, airBaltic, Allegiant Air, easyJet, Indian Airlines, IndiGo, Kingfisher Red and Ryanair. The PR departments at easyJet (five new routes) and IndiGo (four new routes) have been kept busiest. We also report on the start of a new airline, GeorgiaSkies.
easyJet is on a roll thanks to absorbing GB Airways earlier this year. Just for once it’s growing faster than Ryanair and has higher load factors. But what’s happening at the other LCCs like Germanwings, SkyEurope and Vueling? Which two LCCs failed to reach 80% LF in August?

Since opening its Dortmund base in July 2004, easyJet has only grown its route network from eight to 11 routes and there have been some high profile casualties along the way. We look at easyJet’s monthly load factors by route for 2007 and see whether the newest routes are likely to survive.
European LCCs; SkyEurope joins Germanwings in reporting negative growth in April – easyJet passes 40 million mark
The retiming of Easter this year impacted Europe’s LCCs in April with load factors mostly down compared to March. Which LCC still reported 20% growth and how does clickair compare with its rivals in load factor terms?
Having started almost 190 new routes in the last six months (no, honest!) it’s no surprise that some of Ryanair’s new routes are low frequency. Among Europe’s LCCs this reduction in average frequency is a clear trend (with a couple of notable exceptions). Who is the master of the low-frequency network?
