@hjelnaes The norwegian regional airline Widerøe is operating a number of PSO routes and also some commercial routes now paid by the government during Covid-19. Consequently lower decline in traffic than other airlines and will remain so the next 30 days.
@LuxuryTravelled Stelios has never been happy with the Airbus deals. It would leave them vulnerable if there is a lot of consolidation in the market, and they wanted to remain independent.
@SeanM1997 Air India will increase its Mumbai – London Heathrow route for Summer 2020 from 7 to 11 weekly flights. An additional Sunday rotation has been added on a B787-8 aircraft.
@SeanM1997 easyJet are to consolidate all of its UK – Berlin routes to Berlin Brandenburg in Winter 2020.
@SeanM1997 Pegasus Airlines are to further increase its London Stansted – Izmir route from 5 to 7 weekly (daily flights) from August 2020 until the end of the Summer 2020 season.
