Of course, the airlines increase flights during the winter. It is the high season for tourism. There is more demand for flights because of a pool of more passengers. When air slots and routes are negotiated among airlines, airports, and governments; a window is negotiated allowing the amounts of flights for the routes. The result is airlines add more flights during the high season and reduce flights during the low season. It is a given.
