What is the current situation with passenger numbers from Stansted? Is it still down on last year like it was in December after the Ryanair and Air Berlin winter cut backs.

Why? Is this situation likely to turn around over the summer? I therefore don't understand the need for a second runway.

I would anticipate numbers being down from now on, for a year or more depending on the economy. STN has lost a number of its operators (Sky Europe, Eos, Maxjet, etc), and others have cut back, notably FR - the largest.

With increased fuel prices and recession beginning to bite, numbers are likely to be down almost everywhere, and STN will be no exception.

As for the second runway, I would not be surprised to see changes to its spec as BAA comes under the microscope of the Competition Commission, and as it tries to cut back on capital expenditure. Unless, that is, the whole airport is sold off. Then all bets will be off.

I can't understand why Stansted doesn't have low-cost operators to the Canaries.

Why is it that the charter operators don't seem to like it much either?

I don't know why that is, i've always thought the same thing and could only think that it's maybe because Luton is only down the road with Gatwick also not to far away.

Both GO and GSM have tried daily flights to TFS from STN.

Never mind, Sunday.

Luton has lots of Canaries flights, to TFS, LPA, ACE and FUE. It's not far from Sudbury, and it's a far better experience than Stansted!

Sad news

So short lived, at least we know it's nothing to do with loads.

So what next ? Ryanair to Newyork ? ?

I find this so sad, especially how the flights were usually always busy.

Bums on seats, as has been said many times before does not equate to a profitable route. The name of the game is yield and Stansted was always unlikely to be drowning in high yield traffic IN COMAPRISON with Heathrow.

The fact that the route isn't even surviving the summer tells that much.

Such a shame and feel very sad for the guys and gals that will lose jobs........ but as previously said by a fellow ppruner the aim was merely to get rid of MJ and EOS and use they are just using the fuel costs as a good covering excuse.

How is this going to affect the decision on the second runway??

Will this make Ferrovial think about selling Stansted now??

Not looking very good is it!!!

There is a demand there however, there are enough of us living on the right side of London (or wrong) who find Stansted an easy 30 min drive and having flown thru there a number of times lately I have to say it's been a pleasure for a change. My flights with AA to NY however I'm guessing I'll be having to take the very long schlep to LHR and get on the phone to them tomorrow to re book. Not everyone who lives in London lives in Hownslow or W1 or Luton for that matter. But as usual the Stansted bashing will start again (wrong place/grass field in the middle of no where etc.... boring move on)
