Not a big fan of the new airport website. Too much in your face.

Jet2 LEI going 2 x weekly

I make the Jet 2 Summer 18 programme up 1 from 93 to 94 departures weekly....interesting to see what the new destinations might be. Maybe that will give NCL 8 a/c next summer.

I would suggest Bodrum, Thessaloniki, Kefallonia and Naples

Good choices Graham, not sure about Bodrum though. Maybe a return to Egypt or Tunisia if security clearance is given

If we were to get A/C 8, I'd say Kefalonia (x1 weekly) was well overdue, as is Budapest (x2 weekly) and a return of Venice (x2 weekly)

Aside from that x1 weekly Thessaloniki would be a very welcome addition once weekly (I don't know why we were left out from the initial destinations list)

Others on my wishlist would be an second Madeira flight and Kos (x1 weekly). Oddballs, but plausible would be x2/3 weekly Paris and x2 weekly Vienna. With x12 extra weekly flights, plus a couple of well placed frequency increases, that would just about see one more aircraft filled up. Fingers crossed for 3 733/5 738 next year.

I really can't see Egypt or Tunisia coming back, Jet2 has always been more on the cautious side with that. If anything I think it would be Hurghada and only from a select few airports, namely Manchester and maybe Stansted. I'd say Morocco would be more likely to feature than Egypt or Tunisia. I'm also hoping Iceland makes an appearance in the not too distant future.

Naples would be nice, but is it worth risking TOM? Same could be said for Split. Glad to see TOM return to Dubrovnik, hopefully they're co-existing nicely there unlike Madeira, it would seem.

It doesn't appear to be an error... But Rome will be x3 weekly in March '18 and x4 weekly April '18, reverting to x2 weekly for the rest of the season, any ideas why?

That would coincide with the Easter Holidays and with the religious connection, Rome would be very popular in that period.

I'd be rather surprised, and slightly disappointed if we were all 738 next year

Someone mentioned it earlier in this thread that the 733 will be replaced by the -800 next summer

A Dreamliner would go down well on a 'W' pattern to JFK from LBA/NCL, or just the 757.

I think when it's comes to NYC it's only Jet2 who can make it work and it's a very limited service.

A Dreamliner is too much and with no feed either end I doubt it would work.

Glad to see Thessaloniki making an appearance finally! And good to see Bodrum back, here's hoping it does well! I wonder, will this be all from Jet2 for another year?

I'll definitely be considering Halkidiki for next year now.

Descending into the realms of fantasy I fear!

Is there a reason the Italian beaches died out, eg Rimini, Cattolica etc?

The beach resorts in that area of North East Italy haven't really died out, they are still massively popular with Italian tourists. A lot of Russians go there as well. It's strange how different nationalities' tastes in holiday destination come and go. At one stage, virtually every regional airport in the UK seemed to have flights to the Dominican Republic, even our friends down at Teesside when it was called Teesside. Now it's just Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester and maybe Glasgow I think. Likewise, I seem to remember flights to Agadir from Newcastle back in my younger days - early 80s, maybe even late 70s?

CAA provisional stats for 2017 out; though no direct comparison with 2016, unless you want to manually go through Feb 2016. Bare in mind 29 days in Feb 2016, compared to 28 in 2017.

Brussels: 1651
Copenhagen: 1396
Paris CDG: 11350
Berlin: 2883
Dusseldorf: 3133
Cork: 1099
Dublin: 20918
Amsterdam: 26283
Gdansk: 2349
Krakow: 1060
Warsaw: 2388
Wroclaw: 2433
Dubai: 19695 (LY 18597) 82.17% Loads

For the last couple of days BMI's Stavanger flight hasn't shown on the airport website departure/arrivals board...is this technical? I've subsequently checked the BMI timetable and I see they have cut out Wednesday flights during April
