Good point. So what? Nobody tries to make it work? Airport closes? No new jobs? Not a very positive outlook. If subsidies can make the airport (and all its related industry) work, why be so opposed to the idea?


I'm not against local subsidies, it's up to the people around the airport to decide if the cost is worth it.

Hmm, if they launch this route they will be competing secondarily with a LCC which is an interesting move on UA's end.

Interesting those Transavia routes from Nantes. It looks like a direct response to easyJet's new base in NTE; some of those destinations/routes are pure easyJet stuff.

So it looks like Joon continues its displacement of AF routes, with CDG to MAD, PRG, ARN, and MAN all switching over, in addition to SXM and UIO.
https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/ai ... on-in-s19/

Does anybody know how much more capacity Joon can add within the current growth agreement with the AF unions? It will be weird to not have AF on some of these routes anymore!

Is it safe to assume they were losing money on these routes or are they trying to maximize their revenue/profits by lowering costs?

Does anyone have a complete list of destinations that were taken over by Joon?

All but 1 flight were full (knowing that they were only selling 100 seats per flight). The flight is indeed returning next year for an extanded period. They said they are looking at going up to 110-115 seats per flight since they excepted passengers to carry 25kg each on average and it turned out to be way lower. So they want to get more people on the plane but with a lower allowance. Details for next season shouldnt be released before early 2019.

It will be interesting to see what will happen in France with domestic routes ex-Paris with Ryanair now operating them on a larger scale (I know they had same domestic routes in W pattern like LIL-MRS). Now, in addition to HOP!, this is a quasi-monopoly of easyJet with Volotea as a second one.

ACE (Lanzarote), starting in December 2018, with 1 flight per week.
VIE, starting in April 2019, with 2 flights per week.
PUY (Pula, Croatia), starting in June 2019, with one flight per week.

Avignon in southern France has an airport. In 2017 it had 15,061 pax - entirely travelling to/from non-Schengen countries - presumably with Flybe and Cityjet to/from the UK

Cityjet have dropped Avignon and Flybe are flying just 1 day per month to each of Birmingham and Southampton in late May amd June (possibly more days per week in July or August)

Avignon is a major rail hub and Eurostar operate a direct train to/from London up to 4 days per week. Ryanair operate to Nimes. Lyon, Montpellier and Marseille are much larger with a wide range of airlines and destinations

Just how much longer can Avignon airport continue ? 2 flights per week in June with nothing in winter is difficult to justify the subsidy that must be involved...

How much longer

Separately, Agen airport (on the main road and rail lines halfway between Bordeaux and Toulouse) currently has just one regular passenger route, a PSO-subsidised route to Paris-Orly licenced to Hop! which operates 3x Mon-Fri and 1x on Sunday. The existing PSO agreement expires on 06-Jan-2019. In July this year, an invitation to bid for a new PSO for a period of 4 years beginning 07-Jan-2019 was formally issued, with a deadline for bids of 10-Sep-2018. It's now 6 weeks since the deadline for bids so presumably the Govt body offering the subsidy has had a reasonable period of time to evaluate all / any bids and start coming to a decision. Agen saw 37,367 pax in 2017 of which 37,329 were flying on a French domestic route. The TGV from Agen to Paris takes around 3h30 with a train at least every 2 hours

Has anything happened with this and has any news been made public ? I'm guessing that Hop! probably asked for more cash than the local Govt wanted to pay but wonder if the likes of Chalair, Twinjet, Eastern or other airlines submitted bids as well. I'm also wondering if Agen airport will still have a route to Paris-Orly on 07-Jan-2019 or whether Agen will end up in the same state as airports like Lannion and Perigueux

PSO routes from Paris to both Aurillac and Castres expire on 31-May-2019 and new bids for airlines to operate these routes are being requested formally by the relevant Govt bodies.
https://ec.europa.eu/transport/modes/ai ... ket/pso_en

Both routes are currently operated by Hop. Neither has any other year round services.
Both Aurillac and Castres have had summer seasonal routes to Corsica and Ibiza in the past but these do not seem to be on sale for summer 2019

There have been noises in the French Govt to suggest cutting the amount of state subsidy to airlines / airports to reduce spending by the Govt.

As a recap...
Lannion and Perigueux have both lost their sole PSO routes to Paris and now no longer have any commercial passenger services.
The Agen-Paris PSO route expires on 06-Jan-2019. A request for bids was issued in July with a deadline of almost 10 weeks ago; I cannot find any news reports indicating a new PSO has been signed yet
Chateauroux had very few routes this year. The (subsidised ?) Chateauroux-London route was a commercial disaster. It is not yet clear if there will be commercial passenger service in 2019
Avignon is reliant solely on Flybe - who propose 1 flight per week to each of Birmingham and Southampton from 25-May to 31-Aug. Flybe are currently having serious financial troubles and urgently seeking another company to take them over

So much that Spain is famous for "ghost airports", the southern part of France looks like a complete nightmare in terms of useless airports. On top of what you have mentioned, there are plenty of other airports that shouldn't exist and rely on subsidies. For instance, what is the need for Nimes with Montpellier next door? Or Carcassone with Toulouse? Or Biarritz / Pau / Lourdes next to each other?

Well Biarritz situated on the Atlantic coast of southwest France is 154km or one hour and 45 minutes drive from Lourdes so not that close in the grand scale of things plus the two airports serve two completely different markets even if both don't really see a lot of traffic.

I couldn't imagine either closing especially Lourdes for obvious reasons plus the fact that Airbus uses the airport for storage of aircraft.

Pau on the other hand I totally agree with you I don't see the point of that particular airport remaining open.

Having used Carcassone Airport on several occasions I find the airport far more convenient for my needs than having to fly into Toulouse Airport even though it's only 94km or an hours drive away.

I think that there was a discussion previously where the local government wanted to close Nimes Airport as well as Montpelier Airport to concentrate operations at Perpignan Airport but I think local opposition went against that idea.

A few years ago Angers and Dijon airports were closed by the French government due to lack of flights.

It was just announced that Air France will be returning to Belgrade with daily flights starting from Mach 2019. Vinci won the concession race for BEG so I guess they lobbied hard for this to happen. From the 2019 summer season BEG-CDG will be operated three times a day plus four weekly flights to BVA on Wizz Air.

I think those 4 new V7 routes haven't been covered here:

Bordeaux – Vienna eff 12APR19 2 weekly A319
Lyon – Prague eff 12APR19 2 weekly A319
Palma Mallorca – Brest eff 10APR19 1 weekly A319
Palma Mallorca – Caen eff 09APR19 1 weekly A319


From what I see this will be Caen's only route with Spain. You can criticise many things about V7, but definitely they think outside the box!

Closing MPL ??? :ugeek: that can’t be serious ?
FNI is ghost airport and PGF has small traffic and is quite far from MPL/FNI. And MPL is a large city justifying its airport.

Catania is CTA, not CTN :)

This Ryanair expansion in France is very interesting. Quite a few domestic routes. I bet Air France, easyJet and Volotea will not be happy. Also FR is insatiable adding capacity to Morocco.
