Having flown into both AOC (with FR) and LEJ (with AB) I, for one, am sad to see the switch. It was always a pleasure to have a delicious beer on the terrace at AOC and wait for the FR plane to arrive before dashing through security! LEJ is better connected of course but a total bore.
I think the Thuringen government are wanting to focus on Erfurt airport so have cooled their support for AOC.

Just to sort of confirm the rumour about FMO and PAD facing the axe - now both routes are on sale for a starting price of 190,99 EUR one way, which usually is the first confirmation that a route will go.
Both finish on 31 October. Still in booking system after 31 Oct but not bookable at all.

So let's wait and see what will happen to the DUS route as FMO and DUS are served by the same DUS-based aircraft.

Is easyJet going to terminate 3 destinations (namely : Faro, Fuerteventura and Funchal) from Stansted ?

They appear not to be bookable for the summer 2012 (FAO is not on sale after 4th of April, FUE after March 24th and FNC after 1st Nov 2011).

EZY...

Regarding EZY...

If you look Faro (FAO) is not even on sale from Gatwick from next May, either is Funchal (FNC) for that matter, though the Funchal route is available ex Gatwick for the winter period. Doesn't mean they're dropping it from Gatwick though does it?!

Fuerteventura is very popular and generally always full. The only London gateway for this route with EZY is Stansted, so unless it's moved over to Gatwick I very much doubt this route will vanish completely. Southend I don't believe will have the runway length for full load operations down to the Canaries.

And finally... EZY are only on sale for a limited number of routes May/June so don't jump your guns, give them a chance to get the full programme on sale.

The difference is that easyJet has not released its flights from Gatwick for April-June yet, but it has from Stansted. It has also been announced in Madeira that it is dropping the Funchal-Stansted route and cutting Funchal-Bristol flights from 3 to 2 per week.

Albanian Airlines has also ditched Stansted, with BelleAir remaining as the sole carrier flying between STN and TIA.

So DUS is axed as well? Or are you "only" referring to the confirmed end of flights to PAD and FMO?

Albanian

Have Albanian Airlines confirmed that they are leaving STN and are they possibly moving to LGW?

A few rumours on other online forums that Air Asia X may remain at STN although I can not see this myself after there 'big announcement' as to them moving to LGW!

What a real shame to see so many airlines leave STN, it is a fantastic airport and I love flying from it even though I live in Southampton it is exactly 123 miles from my drive to the long term car park at STN and is easliy done in 1.40 mins not that much longer than it would take me to get to LGW from Southampton.

Wizzair

Maybe Wizz could be the first target
Wizz are investing more behind the scenes at LTN with more increases in frequencies next year. I doubt they are going anywhere.
When the new owners arrive at STN, they will find it hard to attract anyone in the current ecomonic climate, if there is anyone left other than cargo & RYR.

Money talks and the new owners will want to see a quick increase in business, just like LGW I would expect to see plenty of "incentive" deals on the table. airlines are mercenary and will move for cash especially LCC's

that said until it happens it is all supossition

Why would Wizz even think about moving to STN. THey would have to go head to head with Ryanair on many Eastern European routes, why would risk it.

Not sure that Ryanair can add their 2pence.
They have what they want-total dominance of the airport.
If they wanted to prove a point why not move some flights to ltn or lgw from their european bases.
Instead they add flights(Leipzig and Barcelona) which just deters other airlines from starting up.
No unfortunately Stansted and Ryanair are a marriage.Ryanair cant move anywhere else around London at the moment.They lacked the vision shown by Easyjet earlier on with lgw/ltn so IMHO they cant complain.
