Unserved Route of the Week
Madrid to Barcelona was once the world’s busiest airport-pair but the emergence of a high-speed rail alternative last year has impacted traffic. By how much? And how have the competing airlines adjusted capacity?
London – New York is still the busiest transatlantic route but how has the market evolved during the last 20 years? Which carriers and connections have been and gone in recent years and who’s left?
Valencia was ‘discovered’ by UK LCCs in 2004 and the market quadrupled in just two years. But that growth has not been sustained and having been a duopoly between Iberia and British Airways in the early 00s, now easyJet and Ryanair dominate.
