Dont forget Air Berlin have a mini hub at STN so connections to Germany (plus a few other destinations) would be possible. And I know ther Germans do like Jersey. It wouldn't be much extra traffic, but it would be another source of passengers other than those just going between Jersey and London

With Air Berlin making a large presence at Stansted and operating a number of U.K. domestic services would this one attrack them with a Fokker 100 servic?.
Very disappointing news the Jersey Aurthorities are trying to encourage new routes but they dont seem to be able to keep what they have.
The CAA annouced on the 12th of December the Atlantic Expess has now there own A.O.C. then this happens.
It does appear that GSM have dropped their daily STN-YHM for summer 07,
although it is still shown on the STN site.

Are you sure? It's still bookable on GSM's website. What makes you think it has been dropped?

This was a separate operation to the UK 'regional' flights from YHM. All of those DSA/NCL/BHX/LPL/EXT/BFS flights were operated from YHM-(ukairport)-YHM, not from STN-(ukairport)-YHM!

Did this change happen when GSM's winter timetable STN-TFS was amended?

With bmi on the JER route from LHR, do we need the STN route. I know quite a while ago U2 was looking at JER and IOM but nothing seems to have come from it.

On a side note - have booked to go to BIO in May - really glad to see that the flight has gone 2x daily.

Has anyone heard anymore rumours that Channel Island Airline BlueIslands might be taking over the Jersey-Stansted route, may prove quite lucrative twice a day in a 19 seater aircraft then twice a day in a 50 seater aircraft.

Looks like Stansted is to get it's long awaited longhaul service to the Far East! Any ideas as to what aircraft Air Asia plan to use?

The latest on the long haul/low cost from Malaysia indicates that the company is talking to Boeing and Airbus about leasing 777 or A330 respectively.

FlyGlobespan's timetable listing is once again showing the STN-YHM service.

More new routes from Stansted

Sun Express are reported to be starting two new services see,
http://www.abtn.co.uk/New_flights_be...ted_and_Turkey

but no news on the IZMIR service that was planned with A319s, presumably they are still short of aircraft.

Easyjet doesn't operate to the IOM because it is something like 50m short of A319 full operations to a LON airport. I'm guessing that U2 aren't planning on compromising any empty seats on their a/c like FR do on alot of their flights to smaller airports.

Don't know about JER.

What does this mean for their LTN operations then - is Katowice just to take advantage that no one else serves it from STN or are Wizz going to focus on Essex in the future?
