While back on this thread it was quoted that jet2.com were gonna announce new flights from BFS to Larnaca anymore news on this.Think they were gonna use B737/800 aircraft.
From my contact at BFS this is still going ahead

So assuming BFS gets an -800 to fly to larnaca, what other routes will it be used on? And where will the -300 go that it is replacing? I think it may be wishful thinking from your contact.

....... plus BFS is one of the Royal Mail bases so it'll need to be a QC.

Why wouldn't they have a go at MAN or EMA they seem to do alright out of 2 flights per day to LBA carrying 8000 per month, MAN or EMA would pull more. Also do they have aircraft sitting at BFS vacant most of the day during the winter that could be utilised.

BFS-EMA

With 5 daily flights BHD-EMA there simply is not sufficient demand for any additional flights to Belfast at the moment. Perhaps when the outcome of the WW/BE "battle" is known, then there may be the opportunity to re-introduce a BFS service, but I doubt it would generate much profit, if any at all.
BFS-MAN could possibly work though.

BFS - MAN, BHX, EMA etc, I imagine would carry a good share of business passengers, so to be sustainable would really require early morning and evening returns to BFS. I would see little point of Jet2 using an aircraft to offer once a day, or middle of the day flights to these cities. I doubt Jet2 would prioritise 3 aircraft to take a chance on these routes and allow peak timed flights.

If Jet2 still intend to operate Larnaca from BFS, you think they'd want to release the seats soon, before they miss the peak booking period for the summer. Think its looking unlikely, no???

Seems like plenty of Jet2 aircraft frequently parked up again this winter. Other than the short Hajj contract, anything else in the pipeline to keep these birds working until summer?
Yeah, got a busy charter programme over the coming months. Includes

BFS- Weekly charters to Verona and Plovdiv. Ad hoc's to Venice, Budapest, Lourdes and Milan.

EDI- Weekly charters to Geneva, double weekly to Chambery. Plus several Ad-hocs' for Northern Lights.

LBA- Weekly charters to Chambery, Ad-hocs to Lyon, Krakow, Paris and Northern Lights.

MAN- Weekly charters to Cambery, double weekly to Salzburg, Ad-hoc's to Amsterdam, Lyon, Copenhagen, Oslo, Rotterdam, Turin, Paris, Nice.

NCL - Weekly charters to Grenoble & Bergen.

DUB- Weekly charters to Chambery, Ad hocs's to Salzburg, Lyon & Rome.

LGW- Twice weekly charters to Chambery, weekly to Plovdiv & Tromso.

The RAF charters to Akrotiri have just ended after 3 months of 2/3 weekly flights. Ad-hocs from other UK Airports: SOU, STN, LTN, LHR, GLA, BRS, BHX and ABZ. Very busy charter programme, plus all 737's in the process of having a cabin refurb. It may seen quiet with various aircraft parked up, but plenty of revenue streams coming in.

You sure it wasn't G-GDFA that just arrived from Amsterdam as the LS202?

G-GDFC is ex PH-HZC with Transavia, it is in basic HV colours so will need a paint job before entering service. It was delivered today from AMS.
