Summer

Summer 2018 t hree airlines top The 2018 summer season is fast approaching and with that in mind anna.aero took an early look at airline networks for a peak week in July. The results show that Ryanair will offer the most routes with more than 1,600 on offer, Turkish Airlines will serve the most countries, and American Airlines will operate from the most airports. All three carriers maintain the top spots in the same categories they lead during the equivalent period in 2017. Due to kick-off on 25 March, S18 will run until 27 October. An analysis of the schedules reveals that for a peak week in July, Ryanair will operate the most airport pairs, Turkish Airlines will serve the most countries and American airlines will fly from the largest number of airports. All three carriers retain their first-placed finishes from a year ago when they topped the charts in the same categories. A full run down of the results can be found in the charts below. The following analysis does not account for all flights scheduled for the entire summer season, but is based on a typical week in the peak period, in this case the week commencing 24 July 2018. Some airlines have not filed their entire summer schedules yet, but taking this peak week as an example should give a good snapshot of what is to come. The obvious caveat is that more routes may yet be added. The S18 data is compared to the week commencing 25 July 2017. The results are organised by published carrier, so some flights will be operated by partner operators or subsidiaries. RYANAIR RULES ROUTES RANKINGS Ryanair retains number one spot atop of the routes rankings, offering nearly 600 more airport pairs than second-placed American Airlines during the week under analysis. The Irish ULCC has increased the number of airport pairs it will serve by 11% compared to the equivalent week from 2017. anna. aero’s New Routes Database indicates that Ryanair has already announced 88 new services that will launch during S18. The top five carriers in this table remain in the positions they occupied for S17. Seven of the 15 airlines offering the most airport pairs are European (highlighted in blue), with five based in North America (dark green) and three in China (red). Six of the top 15 carriers can be classified as LCCs or ULCCs, seven are full-service carriers (FSC) and the remaining two are leisure operators. Top 15 airlines for routes in S18 Number of airport pairs server (Change S18 v S17) Source: OAG Schedules Analyser – data for week commencing 24 July 2018 v week commencing 25 July 2017. Most of the top 15 airlines have increased their route offerings compared to 2017. Ryanair has the most new routes scheduled, but the next largest increases also come from LCCs or ULCCs, namely: easyJet (51 extra routes), Eurowings (50) and Wizz Air (46). The only carrier to see a fall in route numbers between the equivalent weeks in S18 and S17 is China Eastern Airlines, which is currently scheduled to operate 203 fewer airports pairs. It is highly likely that some of this reduction is due to the Chinese carrier not having fully filed its S18 schedules for the particular week being analysed. A number of other significant airlines finished just outside the top 15 for routes, including Lufthansa and British Airways. TURKISH AIRLINES STILL OFFERS MOST COUNTRY CONNECTIONS Turkish Airlines takes top spot in the country connection rankings for S18, with links to 28 more nations than Air France. The Turkish flag carrier will serve two additional country markets in S18 compared to last year with Comoros and Sierra Leone both added to the network. The top four remains unchanged from 2017. The airlines serving the most country markets include five European flag carriers (highlighted in blue), the MEB3 (Middle East big three – highlighted in orange) and the USB3 (US big three – highlighted in light green). There is also one carrier from each of Africa, Canada and Russia. 12 >> Travel Trade OUTBOUND - Scandinavia
