A second weekly flight (Wednesday) is back in the system for Heraklion. Though the system suggests it is operated by Corendon Dutch the timing suggests that it will be operated by a Corendon Airlines Europe plane based out of Heraklion.

Palma de Mallorca is down to 2-weekly. The 1-weekly planned Albastar operation has been shelved.

Palma de Mallorca will not be served during July and August.

Corendon currently seems exclusively focused on July and August which I can imagine they're already doing overtime for. I find it very doubtful that they will pick up the full schedule again in September for just a couple of weeks, but that's what the inventory currently shows - we'll see

Agree, short series are less interesting because of the empty legs at the start and end, but expect the season to last longer a little longer this year for some of the destinations. Nobody has been travelling during spring so with the current Covid trend it's likely that there's more demand in autumn then usual.

I think you are right ... just asking around friends it seems more and more of them are looking for holidays in Autumn when things are more sure ... could be interesting !

Let's hope for it :) . Corendon Dutch is only operating 3 737 at the moment so operating anything extra during September and October will involve getting extra capacity from somewhere so demand needs to be pretty strong to do that.
