Interesting....BAA have been dropping the Gatwick carrot on Stansted defectors. It would be interesting if this is true when we get through to next years summer schedules.

This news is now on the Aegean website. They will move to LHR on Oct 25th as they will be joining *Alliance next year. Bad news for STN.

I would have thought BAA was dangling the Heathrow carrot wherever possible, since Stansted and Gatwick will be competitors to BAA soon.

Blue Air

Noticed Blue are adding flights this winter to Sibiu via Bucharest and Thessaloniki.
Interestingly in the drop down box the destination of Brussels is now showing but not yet bookable.

Is BRU left there from when Blue Air flew BBU-BRU-STN?

Sibiu is not via BBU, but rather a stop a stopover in two of the five weekly STN-BBU flights. Thessalonki is non-stop and new, operating 3xWeek (LTN-Bacau also continues for winter)

Not yet bookable on the Turkish Airlines website. Do you think it will be priced a little lower than IST-LHR? Is there good public transport between SAW and the main areas of Istanbul?

Thanks.

From SAW it is very easy to get into the centre of Istanbul it takes just over an hour - I personally prefer SAW over IST as its often less crowded and quieter.

Seems TK are going head to head with YK(KTHY) & Pegasus' frequent service to SAW. Also is this new service in addition or instead of their existing IST service from STN?

I think TK will move some flights from IST (business traveller, connection) to SAW (point to point, tourism) to have some slots at IST for expansion and new destinations.
Also there will be a new terminal at SAW and Sun Express (joint venture between TK and LH) increasing flights from SAW more and more, too.
IST-LHR is/was flown with B773. I think TK will need these a/c for their longhaul flights in the future and will fly with A321 etc. to LHR and p2p traffic from STN (or maybe in the future from LTN or LGW) to SAW.

Does anyone know how the new route STN - SAW is doing with TK? I am not too sure if I would want a 04.25am arrival time in SAW if I was going for a short break in Istanbul.

With timings like that, it will struggle against the Pegasus STN-SAW-ECN operation.

The flights will operate through a German city served from STN. The flights will now a line more clearly so they will be made available for sale.

I'm sure they won't be direct as AB don't have a STN base.

Does anyone know if IST will be coming back next year for the summer? Or is IST gone for good and SAW simply replaces it? There were always some good offers on flights such as STN-IST-DXB/BKK/SIN etc.
