Aer Lingus growth
« on: November 02, 2018, 03:29:54 PM »
I lifted this from another forum-quite the increase over the next five years:

"From Page 86L long haul fleet to increase by 13 from 17 to 30 in 2023
A321LR
2019 (3); 2020 (8); 2021 (12); 2022 (13); 2023 (14)
A330
A332:  2019 (5); 2020 (5); 2021 (5); 2022 (4); 2023 (4)
A333: 2019 (8); 2020 (8); 2021 (8); 2022 (8); 2023 (8)
A330 TBA: 2019 (0); 2020 (2); 2021 (2); 2022 (4); 2023 (4)
All up three incremental wide bodies and ten incremental narrow bodies.  Slide mentions A321 LR and potential XLR platform for narrow bodies.  Remaining 4 B757 to finish up in 2019.
On page P85 EI sees and additional five transatlantic destinations (to 18) by 2023, with flights increasing to 196 in 2023 (from current 115).  40% increase in cities but 70% increase in flights suggests quite a bit of the growth could be increased frequencies to existing destinations.
P88 sees a fleet of 66 aircraft in 2023 (up 11) as the long haul fleet is increasing by 13 indicating the short hail fleet reduces by 2, BUT P86 states that major increase in capacity will come from increased block time suggesting that A321LR will be used to Europe to compensate for the reduction.
No charts provided for short haul, but P167 indicated that IAG have a large pipeline of aircraft in the "to be determined" category", not nothing specific EI."
