Aviance Check-in desks and Iceland Express to Gatwick

Aviance have been given a ticket desk and a number of check-in desks at the end of Zone D. The Servisair signs have been taken down but at the moment we are still using these desks till AGS vanish from their current location between Zones E-F and stop using desks in Zone K.
With regards to EZY coming across to Servisair, I am not convinced that the airline will move. When I am walking around in orange and have a Servisair ID round my neck then I will believe it.
Iceland Express are looking at a possible move to Gatwick but after talking to the Iceland rep today nothing will happen until after this coming summer if at all.

And with the very good list of incidents none of them seem to involve any ezy aircraft directly so on what basis do ezy want to terminate the contract.
Almost correct ! I believe there is one which involved an orange aircraft but not their handling agent at STN.

if a company wishes to terminate a contract they would simply give notice ie 90 days to the 2nd party citing valid reasons and THAT WOULD BE IT!!!
That is quite correct - 90 days notice is all that is needed from either party although quite often an improvement notice is involved.

Seems to me that easyjet have ample reasons to do just THAT.
Such as .......????

Iceland Express

This is a bold one, considering alot of their pax fly in to stn and then off to other places in europe on EZY, AB, and FR

Also today, I spoke to someone from swissport and they said that theyve been told that theyre losing EZY, AB are off to aviance...... Dont shoot the messenger

FHE (Iceland Express)

Umm I think the airline would not be wise to move from STN, but as the rep said to me over the weekend the move is still in the early stages it may not even happen. Its up to Iceland Express.

So EZY are leaving Swissport hmmm. Still not sure yet! AB staying with Servisair till end of the summer. Aviance have made moves on EOS and Maxjet.

Thompsonfly are staying with Servisair for another three years.

Exclamation Vehicle To Vehicle Incident

Just heard there has been an incident involving a belt loader and a tug and the tug driver is badly injured.

Does anyone have any better more solid information.

Hope the guys OK.......

Belt loader incident

A Swissport easyjet belt loader T Boned a Swissport Ryanair electric buggy. The driver of the buggy had to be cut free by the fire brigade.

It happened this morning on the road around Sat 2 behind the Charlie 40 stands. The buggy driver is in hospital. Not exactly sure how bad his injuries are yet but it was very lucky that there was no passenger in the buggy as we could well have been talking about a fatality.

I'm hearing reports that the guy driving the tug/buggy has got bad spinal injuries.
Having driven many different types, these Beltloaders are certainly not the safest things to drive due to the position of the driver and most can go very fast which can cause them to bounce out of control due to the weight of the belt or rocket launcher and if the driver is not belted down he too will bounce causing him to lose control (I stress this is just a thought).

But my fear is that turnround times has a big part to play in this as they were probably both rushing to get to their aircraft.

Very often - they do have 2 seats after all

The buggy driver has no spinal injuries or physical breakages.

are not up and running yet and tickets are not on sale, route Stansted to Bermuda, due to start very soon.
Is this the FlyJet thing that's been floating around the rumour networks for some time? I think there were slots last summer for the route but nothing happened. Maybe this year.......

The flights to Bermuda are on the arrivals/departure boards most days at STN. It has the flight and then cancelled next to it. It has been like that for ages.

Flyjet were bought out by silverjet, mainly for their 762. I think this route has fallen by the wayside now, if it was to start it would be from LTN now

How the flipping heck can a small Italian carrier compete with the largest and most ruthless LC airline in Europe, especially in their own back yard!

It says one-way fares start from 35 euros - an FR service will get you that for return!

The only advantage of the Air Italy flight is that it has a better frequency at descent times.

I'm sorry, but is this just suicide?!

Why don't they try LTN, or venture further North to MAN or LPL?!

Any Idea of who will be doing these Air Italy Flights, AGS, Servisair, Swissport?? I guess they will give it a go for the summer, and like many routes and airlines, will pull out as soon as the kids go back to school.

Are there still chances of the route between STN or LTN to Bermuda starting, as Zoom UK have applied for flights to Bermuda from LGW.

Air India and First Choice

Management from Air India where up at Stansted today looking at the check-in facilities and out of size luggage. If they did move some flights up to STN they could be looking at a handling agent.
Air Berlin are having self service check-in machines installed in time for April they are going to have 4 in zone A, and First Choice are looking at long haul from flights from Stansted.
