Easy Jet - should I worry that they still have not released flights??

I have booked a hotel in Germany (Bavaria) for September. I keep checking easy jet and they only have flights to Salzburg through to mid April. Which is only 4 weeks away. Surely they should have released further flights by now? Should I be worried? It is not on their list of routes that they are dropping. Anyone in the know?

Which airport are you going from?

Oops! Should have said that. Any London airport.

Looks like that route stops in April, perhaps for skiing?

What about Munich?

Easyjet from Gatwick to Munich.

Or Ryanair from Stansted to Salzburg on certain dates in September.

Oh god! That hadn't even occurred to me! Yes, the route to Munich is plan B. I really want to avoid Ryan Air.

Not sure when you last went with Ryanair but I've been with them twice in last couple of weeks and they've upped their game recently. You get pre-allocated seats and the service is much more customer-friendly than previously.

How are you getting from the airport to hotel?

Ryanair ok. Go with low expectations (ie a seat on a plane to get you from A to B) and you'll probably be pleasantly surprised!

I just priced it up and ryan air are £300 more expensive to Salzburg than if we fly easy jet to munich (and that is with the hold baggage, seats etc - I did like for like. BUT I have just had to email the hotel to see if they can change the booking to Friday- Friday instead of Saturday - Saturday as the flights are at horrible times on the Saturday. So now I can't book the flights unless they say yes! We are taking the train to the hotel (in Ruhpolding) so it's a longer transfer from munich but that's ok.

Also have a look at Lufthansa to Munich from HRW for comparison (with bags included).

And Airberlin and from various London airports.

Thank you to the person who suggested Luftansa! I just booked flights on the days we wanted for only a little more than Easy Jet. It never occurred to me to look at scheduled airlines as they used to be so much more expensive than the budget airlines, but it guess things have changed!

Glad it was of all help. Have a good trip.
