Communication campaign toulouse airport winter 2017

The winter programme on offer at the Toulouse airport is perfectly in tune with the rest of the year - incredibly positive (see the article above Excellent figures for airport traffic). The overall offer has increased by 8.6%, that’s the equivalent of 390,801 seats. A significant percentage of this capacity can be attributed to low-cost airlines, but traditional airlines such as XL Airways, with its two long-haul routes to La Réunion and Martinique, are also part of the picture.

Regarding scheduled traffic, low-cost airlines have recorded growth of 19.9% (+304,524 seats).

The three major players in this sector are behind these impressive figures: Volotea (opened routes to Fuerteventura, Caen and Nantes), Ryanair (opened routes to Frankfurt, Seville, Naples, Lisbon and Edinburgh) and easyJet (opened routes to Venice and increased capacity to Paris-Orly). Traditional airlines are by no means excluded from the phenomenon, since they also recorded growth of 3.5%, that’s 20,717 seats.

Aside from the major new summer routes operated by XL Airways to the islands of Martinique and Réunion, Air France is also a major contributor to these great results: the latter has increased capacity by 4.7%, in particular to destinations such as Paris-Orly, Nantes and Rennes.

Not to be overlooked: Turkish Airlines has added outbound and return flights to Istanbul.
