In the space of two days we've welcomed Flybe, Monarch and now Jet2 expansion to EMA. The bmibaby slack was never going to last long but this is happening fast. Still wonder whether FR or EZY are yet to play their hand here.

So what are the totals now:
-10 Baby 737
+4 Flybe Dash 8's (assuming GLA/EDI flown on non based aircraft)
+1 Jet 2 737
+1 Monarch Airbus
= -2 aircraft but also aircraft size reduction?

Not too bad going so far, I'm sure all 3 airlines will add further capacity if they can do so profitably.

Ten BMIBaby aircraft (thought it was nine) minus six is four not two and Flybe plan to base two aircraft at EMA not 4. Untitled Document
Good news for EMA but the new capacity so far doesnt make up for the loss of Baby.

ATNotts:

I think EMA are better off with a quality carrier such as Monarch.
Obviously you haven't flown JET2 recently.

Monarch aircraft interiors are as old as the aircraft, very tired looking,dirty and no leg room.

Jet2 aircraft interiors are brand new smell new, with excellent seats and plenty of leg room. Timings are very good and service on board is excellent.
Overall JET2 is a "quality carrier" with very little serious competition in the UK. My only complaint is that they are a bit more expensive usually but probably worth it.

You mustn't have been on a 733 then. As they all have brand new interiors.
DD is spot on.

I think their punctuality record says otherwise.

TSR2

Of my last 14 Jet2 departures only 2 were late and then only by about 5 minutes, all the rest were on time or early. Punctuality is improving all the time, and the company would be the first to admit that it was not the best.

But it is pro-actively doing something about it. Plus Jet2 records all departures as late if they are late, including ones outwith their control, ramp congestion for example. Unlike some airlines they do not record 5 minutes late as on time, or use the push and park method.

No doubt the BE flights to CDG will also carry an AF codeshare

Jet 2 a quality carrier ??..... Is this the same jet 2 who had one of their aircraft recently grounded by the CAA as it was deemed to be not airworthy ?

Looking at the S13 bookable flights looks as if LS are basing 2 737-300's and 2 757's at EMA.
