I would have suggested double daily from both LGW and STN would be more likely than a transfer from LGW. While STN has its own underserved market as has been pointed out I can't see why WOW would give up an existing apparently successful operation to service it. Also, they near enough have three daily flights across the two airports as it is.

Fair point from AirportPlanner1 re LGW & would be another possible scenario...but maybe other factors at work too...competition with even more NAX long haul planned from LGW....& perhaps a/c availability for WOW certainly in the short term with their own rapid expansion plans...Certain tho developments will be interesting.....

Well that was quick. Are we to assume early sales have been very strong from other airports?

Lost all credibility when they made the following statement and missed out London City

Being the first airline startup to use a gofundme account to raise funds we plan to fly passenger, cargo, and charter services and create bases at London Stansted, London Gatwick, London Heathrow, London Luton, London Southend,

2. Unrealistic expectations to become a national airline.
3. The posts on the FB group are insignificant to the reasons behind the group itself.
4. They can't respond to simple requests for information about the business which EVERY investor is entitled to see and read before investing.
This all raises too many alarm bells for me so I would warn people NOT to invest until the owners can provide information and evidence to back up the claims and prove this is a legitimate and viable business."

Unless I am missing something, aren't all these routers already operating this year?

Southside Bobby, did you miss the fact that there may be no RYR routes by S19! Ryanair Launches London Summer 2018 Schedule; Reiterates Brexit Fears - Finance News - London South East

I know it's all RYR huff & puff but I would have thought that would be of more interest to post on this thread!

Key words dear boys are "new for Summer `18"....Yes already announced for Winter`17 so a continuance & therefore first timers to a Summer sched...or together with other facts will make for 144 RYR destinations from STN Summer`18 delivering 21.4m pax pa...
Pabley...no sorry...altho RYR making the statement it would apply equally to any UK airport..so not in the STN thread please...Anyways the strong operational & commercial statement I have partly referred to above surely indicates reality that "it will be sorted"...

Ryanair have yet to get over the fact that the great British public take no notice of anything Ryanair say. I doubt that MAG do either with their plans for Stansted.

Sorry could we have that in some form of comprehensible English. I know it may be difficult but try.

Ryanair launching S18

I've tried booking a flight from STN to DUB for S18 - but Ryanair's website shows zero availability after 24 March 2018
Temporary glitch or are other people also finding that S18 has yet to actually go on sale on Ryanair's website (or any other website for that matter !)

With Ryanair I've always found that once they announce a route it generally goes on sale the following day. I'm going to guess that's probably the case for their summer 2018 schedule too.

I've had a look at what Ryanair have loaded for S18. Lorient and Rijeka were both flown in S17, but neither has a schedule published beyond the end of S17
One might conclude that Stansted-Lorient and Stansted-Rijeka are at risk of not being flown by Ryanair in S18

With a 7hr 20min stopover in KEF on the way back that is going to fun but if you don't care about that the price is good
