I note mention is made of Jerbourg's summer sun route to Spain by the E195 on a limited number of Summer Sats, stating it to be under investigation.

Certain media reports state that Alderney's runway is "crumbling", anyone know any more about this? Any ATC comments?

I'm sure they'd love to fly into Heathrow if they could.
Don't be fooled by the seemingly close proximity of STN and LTN - they both exist for a reason and have completely different catchment areas both of which are close to one of the most densely populated and largest capital cities in Europe. As the crow flies, the distance is akin to LHR-LGW. To drive between the two airports means a trip down the M11, along the M25 and back up the M1. Trains require a similarly awkward routing via two London terminals.

While to the general north and the eastern side of Stansted and the western side of Luton the catchment areas are different much of it is actually the same so some passengers would be lost to Luton if both routes operated simultaneously.

Well, if they feel that there is sufficient demand for additional frequencies serving the leisure market from LON, instead of adding frequencies at STN or LGW they can just as well add those at a new gateway which is more convenient for some of the customers currently using LGW or STN and probably is also cheapter to operate to because of new route incentives/discounts. So I don't think we are really looking at a cannibalization, but rather directing existing and hitherto unmet demand.

To correct Air UK's road knowledge, I personally would travel STN-LTN via Harlow and Welwyn. It's not that far and traffic rarely too bad.

Perhaps they are looking to connect into the fast growing Wizz network - amongst other Luton airlines.

Thread drift I know but A120/A10/A414/M1 is pretty good STN-LTN too - better than Air UK's route

How much of the problem with the Alderney flights are the aircraft and how much the condition of the runway and the associated 20 knot crosswind limitation?
