Europe's LCC routes - lots of changes!

If you're planning flights in Europe with budget airlines for this summer, see if this could be of interest to you: A new report on anna.euro about the routes that have been dropped, and added, by the five major European LCCs for summer 2017 (easyJet, Norwegian, Ryanair, Vueling and Wizz Air -anna.euro calls them collectively "PELOCO5" as in Pan-European Low Cost 5):

[Begin quote]

Between them the PELOCO5 have ceased operations on almost 200 routes, while starting new services on well over 500 routes. Ryanair and Vueling have both stopped flying on over 60 routes, while easyJet and Wizz Air have each suspended fewer than 20 routes each, once you take out those routes that aren’t being operated because of runway maintenance work, notably at Targu Mures in Romania and Vilnius in Lithuania. Wizz Air has the best ratio of new routes to dropped routes (over 9:1) followed by easyJet (just over 5:1) and Ryanair (just under 4:1). Norwegian will have launched just over twice as many routes as it has dropped, while Vueling has actually dropped three times as many routes as it has added.
