@LuxuryTravelled From April 8 2022, @volotea will be connecting Paris CDG and Verona, flying four times per week in peak season. Their first service to Paris.
@LuxuryTravelled Interesting partnership between Allegiant and Viva Aerobus in the Americas, would be interesting if something similar didn’t happen in Europe.
@LuxuryTravelled Leasing slots to easyJet is strategically more beneficial to both BA and easyJet, rather than allowing Wizz a foothold. Smart.
@LuxuryTravelled Some interesting numbers I came across the other day, regarding Italy – especially considering the Wizz ‘fanfare’. Ryanair will have 90 based aircraft in Italy in 2022 (17 bases), EasyJet 33 (3 bases) & Wizz 22 (7 bases).
@MaltaAvOutlook During the past 24 hours Brazilian company Desaer has launched the ATL-300 which should reach the market by 2027. The aircraft is a 40-seat regional airliner which will go in direct competition with the current ATR42-600. The aircraft has a ceiling of 31,000 feet.
