I won't add Channel Express to the list of former scheduled cargo airline's operating from London Stansted Airport based on the two flights STN-IST-STN as there have been many other examples that I could easily add if that we're the case.

I'll be re-editing the list accordingly.
It's your list after all.

However most of the Channel Express flights were on Channex callsigns except the TNT which was "NITRO", and I don't remember the Royal Mail having their own AOC.

I've also remembered we did a weekly and sometimes twice weekly BA flight to Tel Aviv in 1997/8. BA callsign, and also STN-CGN-SHJ-LCA-STN for UPS 5 days a week in 2000/2001.

PS. Jet2 is Channex.
