BRS S17 schedule hasnt been released yet. Probably April/May time. But will awaiting with anticipation as it is rumored TCX will base a 3rd aircraft at BRS for S17 with 2 aircraft for W17. Lets see and fingers crossed.

It will be one of 3 that TCX have
G-TCCA
G-TCCB
G-DAJC

All 3 are currently operating for Condor in Germany so you wont know which one you are on until day of travel. All info about them can be found just by googling the registrations individually

It certainly has been rumored that an A330 could be making a small appearance, but i cant see it myself. In terms of the 3rd full time A/C, thats looking more likely - though it would be of the Smartlynx or Avion kind.

Given that the current single A321 only operates 5 days per week during the Winter, I'd say it's a given that it'll remain at one "unit" next Winter.

And please stop dreaming, no an A330 won't be 'making an appearance' at Bristol.

Back to the real world.

Actually the based winter aircraft has at least one daily service each day during winter and Thomas cook has already announced a new route to Malta from April 2017 onwards. There is plenty of scope for expansion from Brs both summer and winter

Sunshine79 - are the Luton routes TCX operated, or allocation on EZY flights as they have had this year?
