BCN AIRPORT WINTER SCHEDULES (SEATS)
Barcelona reduces its seasonality with a large seat offer increase for next winter. Terminal 1 grows in double digits in all months of the winter season, with a peak growth of 17% in January. Terminal 2 also grows in seat offerings, although at a moderate rate of between 1 and 3%
Terminal 1 has increased its offer with 1.7M more seats, 14% more than the previous winter, exceeding 14 million seats offered. Terminal 2 grows by 127,000 seats, a 2% more.
The large growth in seats is led by Vueling’s strategy; it offers more than 1.3 million extra seats for this winter 2017/18 season. This increase is even greater than the seat increases in the first 9 months of 2017. Its strategy is based on the restructuring of its routes to its main bases and the increase in supply in the gaps left by Norwegian and Alitalia at the Balearic Islands, Bilbao and Rome, routes where it offers 320,000 extra seats.
The structural and economic problems of Pegasus and Monarch, together with the reduction of Norwegian’s offer in Palma and Bilbao, hampered the growth of Terminal 2 at the Barcelona airport for this winter.
