BA CityFlyer

Looking at BACFs schedule for Summer 2017 it seems the Saturday PMI flight has changed to an E170 with an earlier departure time yet the AGP, FAO, IBZ and TXL are still showing as the E190.

With rumours circulating about BACF at MAN and BHX for the summer could this mean some changes, perhaps a 2nd aircraft, for STN?

2nd AC but no extra routes - seems unlikely, unless more routes are planned

Btw, there were 8 EZY overnight the other day, fluke or has the airport picked an extra one up

Re EZY - there was a divert from SEN the other night, probably that.

Total Non-FR flights MON 7 AUG = 76

Heres a list of all non-FR flights on 7/8/17, just an example of whats to come this summer. As much as FR is so important to STN its good to see a larger variety of flights. I suspect large growth for the airport again for 2017. I just hope STN are prepared for the increase in passengers at check-in, security, departure lounge and immigration.

Are Jet2 going to be using the main satellite building (gates 1-19)?

Their check-in area/sales desk is looking bright and impressive!

Does Sat 1 has enough stands for EZY, TOM, MT and LS for the morning peak? I wouldn't be surprised if Jet2 use remote stands.

Stansted is very 'peaky' - huge demand early morning for departures and arrivals late in the evening. And yes, I know there's also a combined peak about 6 pm using a mix of arrivals and departures. Would MAG perhaps prefer to wait a few years so that airlines can be forced to schedule more flights in the currently vacant non-peak slots first ?

Passport Fast Track

Stansted have now introduced a fast track passport lane, which is about 7. On arrival you will, apparantly, be met by a dedicated host to assist one through as fast as possible

What is Passport Control FastTrack?
Passport Control FastTrack is aimed at making your arrival at Stansted Airport as quick and simple as possible. On arrival at the passport control area, you will be greeted at the exclusive fast track lane by a dedicated host. You will then follow the standard border control and passport checks conducted by UK Border Force before entering the Baggage Reclaim area or Arrivals.

Although another moneyspinner for them, might it also be a response to an inadequate service being provided by BorderFarce

Yes, Jet2 will be operating from Satellite 1 (Gates 1-19)

Does Sat 1 has enough stands for EZY, TOM, MT and LS for the morning peak?
Not quite but since the Jet2's generally depart a bit later, they'll probably tow any aircraft on remote stands over once the first few aircraft have left.

Last year they opened the new gates 90-93 which are located in a coaching facility below the Terminal used to access remote parking in the morning rush.

Would MAG perhaps prefer to wait a few years so that airlines can be forced to schedule more flights in the currently vacant non-peak slots first ?
Not sure that's a particularly wise way to manage growth. This is already being accounted for largely by Jet2 who mostly will be operating their second wave of departures between the 14:00 - 16:00 period which has often been much less busy.

I have used Stansted a few times recently including Christmas landing back around 2200 and I have to say a massive improvement. The longest I waited at immigration was about 10 minutes. That really isn't bad considering it's size and the amount of inbound Ryanair's at this time.

Also similarly the outbound experience at security has improved. I walked straight up last time, totally unexpected. It seems there are two entry points for security... The main one that everyone heads for and there's another entry next to the fast track, to the far right of the main entry point. Much quicker in my opinion.

Now they just need a revamp of the check in area. All those white washed walls that were put up with the terminal redevelopment look shabby and temporary.

22:00 is quite a good time to get in though, there is a bit of a lull in international arrivals between about 20:00-22:00. The crunch comes from about 22:45 when quite a few FR flights have offloaded and it gets worse until about midnight. LGW isn't much better though and LTN is about the same in my experience.

I agree security has been an improvement the last couple of times I've passed through

My last flight actually landed back at 23.20. So perhaps I was just lucky.

I believe a Satellite reconfiguration plan begins this week. Looking at a DN that came out the other day, there will be a change in the layout to a couple of Stands on Sat 2 so they will take 737-800s with winglets. Then they are doing something similar on Sat 1 but it will take a few months so could be some short term pain during the early summer for longer term gain.
