Could we see some more LS routes from EMA with the news this morning that EZY are leaving which means loosing routes such as Barcelona, Venice, Prague, Geneva, which aren't operated by other airlines at the airport during the Summer...

Oli,

Unfortunatly i think after the big fan fair about EMA being the only airport with FR, WW, LS and U2 and now losing Easyjet, we wont be seeing anyone taking over the routes.

Its a failier on the part of the airport management in part. They cant blame the recession and passenger figures were pretty good from EMA most of the time. When an airline becomes stagnent, it becomes a problem. There has been no expansion at EMA in 7 years from Easyjet. Where are the 'perks' that Ryanair seem to get. Im also sure LS got a top deal, after signing a 10 year contcat with the airport. Wait for an even steeper decline in passenger figures. wi have lost about 750K pax from Easyjet and gained roughly 130K from Jet2

regards

Stu

WW might be basing a 6th aircraft at EMA next summer, a 6th aircraft is needed on a Monday and Friday in August 2010, so that might become permanent, who knows, its a complete joke EZY pulling out of EMA, yes they haven't expanded in 7 years but they didn't really need to, their routes as you say had good passenger figures. I'd like to now what EMA have to say about this, as they were so dam pleased about having 4 low cost airlines, well, for about a week! I do think the EZY routes would be perfect for LS though, and would also fill in jobs lost at EZY... I wonder if LS will get EZY's check in desks now, through 33-38?

I will probably get shot down for this but how about Humberside as 9th UK base? I heard they came close to before and now with all the well performing charter routes lost a based aircraft could help bring those destinations back?

Anyone think Durham are in the running for a base? Slap bang in the middle of Leeds and Newcastle I know, but then so would be Doncaster (LBA/EMA) - only other option I see is Prestwick

If LS were to have a base at DSA it could be ideal for them even though they are opening up a base at EMA and aswell as having their base at LBA.

The routes that could be offered from DSA would most likely be city and summer sun routes similar to that at LBA, whereas it seems the operation at EMA is geared more towards a niche market away from the ''bigger'' charter carriers to more mid-haul routes, filling in a void left by XL and a reduction in based charter flights. Thomsonfly showed the potential the airport had on these routes when it first started here, but with it's change of strategy they were steadily abandoned. Should LS set up base here (being the only non charter at DSA) they would then have the monopoly and control of how to control routes with cost and frequencies etc, so that it doesn't impact on their operations at their existing bases.

This same idea could also be said about MME. Located between its two main operations, LBA and NCL.

Dublin. Meeson wants a fight, Jet2 have done regular charters from DUB before. I believe Glasgow and Bristol would be ideal 1 a/c bases to start with also. Let's see what happens ...

There are a number of bases that Jet2 could choose from North of London yet I think it is more important to concentrate on their current expansion:

EMA Base
What a fantastic choice of destinations. We were saying that it would become Ryanair and BMIBaby country yet Jet2 have come in and picked a handful of superb routes that will be guaranteed money makers. I was in SSH during the last week and the number of British was far higher than I have ever seen before and all UK bound flights were full upon my departure - Jet2 seem to have entered the Egyptian market at a fantastic time!

Monastir
Another great little earner!

Durham, Humberside or Norwich would be my bets for a new base. I hope HUY get their act together and get it. Jet2 are already prominent at MAG airports Manchester and now East Mids. I suspect Norwich will be the one however, but I would love to be proven wrong.

Regards

Mike

I have got a grip, just checked with the CAA web site !
And what dynamic conclusion did you come to looking there then?

Hopefully that you should stop peeping round the corner of hanger doors and get on with your job and leave others to do their's!!

Well depend what way you look at the BD/LH story then there will be plenty of room at CWL for a new carrier as Jet2 offer many a route from other hubs that are not currently served by and airline at CWL and if WW do dissapear due to the LH/BD situation then they will be in a perfect place and position to move in.
