A very busy week as many airlines launched new routes aimed at the winter leisure market, whether it be skiing in Europe or sunshine in the US. We tracked almost 50 new routes that started this week operated by 24 different airlines including: airBaltic, Arik Air, British Airways, Copa, easyJet, Emirates, jetBlue, Ryanair, SAS, Singapore Airlines, TACA, Transavia.com, Turkish Airlines, WestJet and Wizz Air.
A brief lull this week before we have over 50 new routes starting next week. However, BA started a new route to India, easyJet launched four new routes including a domestic French route, and Transavia (a Dutch airline) started a whopping eight new routes from Copenhagen (in Denmark). Ah, the joys of EU liberalisation. Plus new routes from Mexicana, SriLankan and TUIfly.com. Ryanair took the week off but will be back with a bang next week!
It’s been a surprisingly busy week for new route launches over the last seven days. Airlines busy promoting new services include Aer Lingus, Aeromexico, Air Alps, Air Astana, Air Busan, Air Pacific, AirAsia, Asiana, easyJet, Etihad, jetBlue, JetLite, Jetstar, Jetstar Pacific, Korean Air, LAN Argentina, Mandarin Airlines, Mexicana, Pacific Blue, Polynesian Blue and Ryanair. Whew!
