IB, always happy to stand corrected, but that just brings the two carriers potentially level on fuel costs. I know EI push conx with Jet Blue but I just don't buy it as a serious alternative to a proper network connection.

And finally, can I thank whoever started this thread for calling Jet2 what they are - an airline, NOT a website. I really hate it when everyone else calls them Jet2.com - the prime service they offer is flights, not flight comparison!
Fair enough, but Jet2.com is actually the airlines trading name, a subsidiary of the Dart Group PLC. ''Jet2'' is just a brand of the groups travel businesses.

All advertising for the airline, airport/onboard announcments and communications are meant to be shown as Jet2.com .

Cazza - you are technically correct but it is marketing madness. The whole idea of Jet2 suggests Jet2 Malaga, Jet2 Amsterdam etc on the departures board.

Why the hell do I want to Jet to dot com? For most of us, websites are there to give us information, they are not a destination in their own right.

Of course, if DART group had set up Air 'Facebook', then it might be a different story

Could I just ask any LS insiders what prospects they have of Jet2 jumping a little bit further south to CVT?

There were rumours in the old days of Meeson being chummy with CVT mgt, but also of TOM effectively having a deal at the time not to have anyone operate routes in comp with them. I think in reality there wasn't really much room for TOM competitors back then, now there is plenty!

jabird - I am not an LS insider, but I can tell you that Coventry Airport is under completely new ownership and management since the old days of Thomson. The management personnel you refer to are presumably long gone, taking their industry connections with them. As I said, I have no inside info but Jet2 at CVT would be a real long-shot TBH. SHED.

Shed, I am well aware of new mgt & their claims of 'instantly' getting 1m pax pa - see CVT thread.

I posted here because essentially we have done an elimination process which makes every other airline very unlikely! Therefore, either Jet2 come to CVT, or new mgt are being wildly optimistic.

mikkie,

Think there will be a lot of Orange blood running through those taps! CVT has no carriers at present.

Jabird,

J2 very unlikely to open up in CVT as EMA only 15 mins up the road and it is expanding again at EMA next year. Only my thoughts though.

Regards

Matt

15 mins in a f1 car (no speed checks on the M69, M1 not so forgiving!)

Even CVT - BHX will take a good 25 mins (lots of cameras), but the argument often used is Cov BR - B Int station is just 10 mins.

So what? Baby & Ryan both @ EMA and BHX. Ryan now gone into allsorts of cities where they have used both (or even all) airports.

I would generally assume that an airline at BHX is less likely to add routes at CVT, but they could still add a different range of destinations. Jet2 at MAN & BLK, so would CVT really be out of the question?

Not out of the question certainly, but not very likely IMHO. The costs of setting up a base are substantial.

The costs of having an idle airport are also substantial I would expect a heavily discounted landing fee, profit to be made from the car parks!

Does CVT still have the necessary infrastructure to support pax flights, i.e. have the terminal, car parks, etc been used since TOM left?

Jet2 @ ABZ?

I'd like to see Jet2 at Aberdeen, which would help fill some more of the void left when flyglobespan went under a couple of years ago.

Would be nice to see the likes of them expand further north from the Scottish Central belt.

The likes of Alicante would be well supported at the right frequency, I reckon.

one hears a rumour for 2012...

ABZ is probably a more feasible shout than CVT in my humble opinion, would be suprised to see anything based, but maybe some 733 'w' patterns could work.

Not that I know of, besides a new route to Faro and the return of Dubrovnik for next summer (so far!).

Wikipedia Page shows that Jet2 have routes planned from Cardiff for May 2012. however, i think it has been edited as there is only mention on the CWL page, not on any other of the routes.
It would be brilliant if they came to CWL and would probably be their top choice out of CWL and BRS. The apron needs extending at BRS, there is no space. CWL could be in for something here, even if not this early !

Just heard that there is an airbus due to Jet2 very shortly. Source is top management.

Also will be A320. Not sure for how long tho.

A320 is to be a 'standby unit' so dont worry.

Someone did tell me who's it was going to be, but I cant remember.
