From a reliable source in the "cargo area" it has been posted on a local e-group that China Southern will be starting a 3x week cargo service from mid June with B777fs from CAN (Guangzhou). Even more variety in the cargo area.

Thomas Cook Summer 2016 Long-haul

Good to see TCX are expanding their long-haul programme from STN in 2016.

Cancun:
16th July - 20th August 2016: 1x weekly; Sat

Las Vegas:
21st July - 25th August 2016: 1x weekly; Thu

Orlando-Intl:
17th July - 29th August 2016: 4x weekly; Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun
20th & 22nd May 2016
21st & 23rd October 2016

This year I believe they have 15 long-haul flights in total, so quite a nice increase. Well done to STN/MAG and thank you TCX.

Another 777F is hardly variety, QR already drop them in. Now QR adding and A330F would be a nice change

TOM to SFB & CUN

Any idea of frequency of these two new routes?

Shame it took TCX to lead and test the water for TOM to follow in their success. TCX are going 4x weekly on the SFB route in peak season. To think that only last year this was a completely untapped market.

China Southern

TOWTEAMBASE

I think he meant variety as in cargo airlines serving the airport NOT aircraft types, having China Southern amongst the line up of cargo airlines serving STN adds to the variety unless you prefer the 737s of Ryanair.

Having new airlines at STN cargo or passenger regardless of aircraft type is called variety!

I think you know exactly what he meant.

According to Airline Route TCX long haul flights will operate using a 757. Guess they'll have a tech stop in Canada first.

TOM Long-haul

Well done MAG and TOM

These destinations are long overdue and will be a welcome addition to the departure boards at STN.

Just a shame it's been a hotter topic of conversation over on the Luton thread, but then that doesn't surprise me in the slightest.

Airline route is incorrect, as per discussion on the Belfast thread RE: BFS-LAX same issue.

All MCO/LAX/CUN flights ex STN with TCX are to operate with A330.

Thomas Cook 2016

Thomas Cook Airlines website appears to be highlighting flight dates for all routes in Summer 2016 although no times showing and nothing yet bookable (other than long-haul). If accurate, there seems to be even more from them at STN in 2016...

Looks like new routes are to Bourgas and Gran Canaria but for July and August only as well as Sharm El Sheikh which looks to be operating the whole season.

Also extra flights in July and August to Antalya, Corfu, Enfidha, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote and Tenerife.

If this is the case there's going to be quite a lot of TCX at STN in July and August 2016 what with the increased long-haul programme also.

Seems only Izmir has been dropped.

ROI arrivals at STN

Can anyone tell me if all Irish arrivals are still bussed from plane to terminal to avoid UK Border Control and mixing with other non CTA arriving passengers? I use priority boarding on FR rather more for the quick exit it allows. The bus transfer negates this.

Thomas Cook Summer 2016

Flights are now on sale and are indeed those short-haul increases for STN as posted above.

This means through July and August in 2016 STN will have:
2x TOM 737's
1x TOM 787 (Tues and Weds only)
3x TCX A321's
1x TCX A330

Combined they will operate up to 81 departures per week.

I think if anybody told me only a year or two ago that TOM and TCX 2016 schedules were to look like this I'd never of believed them.

Well done again and thank you TCX, TOM and MAG.

would I be right to assume the Thursday TCX to ACE in September is an A321 ?
