A new Ryanair service to Lanzarote has been announced today.
It will compete against both Jet2 and TCX.
Good news for the airport. I wonder if Ryanair will announce any more new routes from Leeds tomorrow at their "Dinner" in York???.

Competing or complementing?

"It will compete against both Jet2 and TCX".

But how much? Jet2 maybe more than TCX but aren't both heavily involved in carrying their own package holidays? That isn't Ryanair's market is it? A bit like the new TFS route down the road at DSA, not so much competing with the present operators to a destination, but complementing them? Just a thought.

EDIT: Just found out it will take up to 48 hours for some people to recieve the new website depending on internet provider among other things apparently

Take a look at the LBA arrivals board, i am guessing due to the bad weather and back-log of traffic that the arrival and departure of the new Easyjet route have been badly effected..looks like they are running several hours behind schedule....

But you probably already knew this!!!

Hi

I see Astraeus have a nice big delay on there inbound Lapland charter. Flight AEU730 was due in at 18:05 yesterday evening (Monday 20/12/10) but it is now expected to arrive at LBA 19:45 this evening just under 26 hours late.

Dose anyone know what has happened to the B737-500, G-PJPJ. Did it go tech somewhere or has it been stuck at one of the many snow closed airports in last couple of days?

I guess the kids will have been happy staying in the snow for an extra day up in finland but I wonder what there parents are thinking.

is LBA getting a run way extension at all in the future? because it a short runway and aircrafts can not do long haul with bigger aircrafts with a fuel stop at E.G shannon does any body know?

I think a runway extension would fall off the edge of the hill, wouldn't it?
Northern England has a long-haul airport. Manchester. It doesn't need and can't sustain another.

No need for a runway extension as Boeing have the 787

i dont think LBA needs a bigger runway because we have direct long hall flights to islamabad on an a310 and we have had flights to newyork on a 757-200 and flights to bardos on a 767-300 and a a330-200

The truth is somewhere in the middle!

Some flights operate direct -the A330 did & the first of this years 3 TOM services went direct. The next two are planned to operate via MAN.
I think the load on the direct operation is limited to enable this to happen.
