Officially the British summer time has ended this past Sunday as the clocks went back an hour and most of us enjoyed that extra hours rest or an extra hour of partying. Winter season is here although it may not feel like winter temperatures yet, for the airlines it is the start of the winter schedules which will continue through until the 28th of March next year. The airlines only recognize two seasons. It is in this period that airlines make the changes to their services.
This year will be particularly interesting with the impact of the economic downturn, which the airlines will have an idea of demand due to last winters experience. Flying to your favorite hotspot for the winter whether that is flights to Malaga or flights to somewhere exotic like the canaries will certainly be different this year as airlines are taking different approaches.
Some are just cutting capacity to reduce costs and avoid running into further cash flow problems, while some airlines are looking to introduce new routes to take a share from competitors very successful routes, others are introducing brand new routes that they hope will prove profitable and some are replacing routes that other airlines have decided not to service this winter. Routes worth a mention that could offer great deals include the Canaries as there is plenty of choices from multiple carriers are offering flights to the Canaries this winter.
Flights to Malaga will also continue to be serviced well as it proves a popular destination for the British during the winter as they seek a warmer climate and relief from the stresses of life or just a chance from the traditional British Christmas. If you are considering flying abroad for a holiday this winter time then as a result of the many changes to routes and competition on those routes then my advice is definitely compare prices before you book your Flights to Malaga or anywhere else.
With the reduced capacity and airlines looking to fill capacity to maximize profits and keep the cash rolling in then it is certainly worth taking the time to consider all carriers, even the full service airlines who will be competing with the no frills services.
