Wel ltold you, just had my meeting, the base closes in Jan 2010 as EMA is to expensive to operate from.
I have been with easyjet for over 7 years. Deffo not going to ryanair as i dont beleive in there policies.

I am just so gutted but like most of us at the bae have said, it has been on the cards for many years, shame all our loads ar 90% + on all routes, i blame easyjet for not expanding us, Well done to Jet2 for coming in and taking the next level with the new routes they will offer.

So sorry that i will miss working at the best base ever, Take a bow guys, you are all good !

Maria, so sorry to hear the news......I know the feeling having been made redundant from EMA post 9/11 and having to move away to pastures new for a job. Not nice.

First Bag..............where are you?? Any comments, anything at all? Maybe more importantly an apology to Sexylady EZY.

Your attitude stinks mate

I think that he should wholeheartedly apologise after what he said yesterday. Totally uncalled for.

You guys are all so nice and very kind people indeed... Mwah
Well i think Easyjet will move to Bhx now, bigger airport, bigger location and more industry i suppose, Watch this space as when you read the easyjet website announcement they want to move to more " attractive " locations and when i queried this, they mean't a more bigger and not so far airport !
So like i say, watch this space

May consider myself for Jet2, just rang them and got told they wont be recruiting till next year :-(

FR have reduced frequency to DUB on a lot of the regions. NCL now only has the one flight daily, and with no EI service any more, it seems like a gaping hole in the market.

An evening NCL-DUB could complement the FR service for the passenger. Fly out in the morning with FR and back with EZY!

Ryanair didn't multiply the frequencies over the summer, when EI had an A320, and loads seemed good, despite the fact that the EI product was significantly more expensive.

I am sure the capacity is there!

RTG!

Would make sense for EZY to move to BHX, with good loads at EMA would be possible to get them at BHX as well. Though then you get the issue of WW or FR moving from BHX to EMA, so its 50/50

When will close EMA base? Flights from EMA now are normally on sale until 30 June 2010.

Easyjet have now 6 aircraft to relocate (3 from EMA and 3 from LTN) i believe will be add at MXP, FCO and open new base at BCN T2.

May not be January after all, but flights up to the New Year are the only ones 'guaranteed' so far.

From the statement.

Flights to and from East Midlands up to the end of 2009, including the Christmas and New Year period, are wholly unaffected. Passengers do not need to take any further action and their flight will be operated as planned. Passengers travelling after this period will be informed well in advance if and how their travel might be affected.

The whole issue is that the market from many of the airports are saturated. EMA is a case in hand and BHX is too.

While airlines might get good loads and fill aircraft some of the markets are so hottly contested that the seats are being sold so cheaply (relative to the cost) that the base is not sustainable.

EZY being a ´pan european´ airline can move its aircraft to markets that are not so crowded and make an acceptable return on investment. I would suggest that BHX is full as regards to operators. with WW, FR, BE etc all in the fold. Besides EZY know the market as they have a few routes in and know what the yield environment is like.

There are not alot of base opportunities in the UK at the moment I would suggest. EZY will get big over time at MAN. I cant see much else happening until well after the recession.

On a different note, I am wondering is the arrival of Jet2 because the airport knew that EZY were leaving?

Really disappointed to hear this news. EZY were miles ahead of the competition in my humble view (well except pricing as you can't beat FR)
Good luck Sexy Lady. If Purser Rob Jones is still at EMA wish him well as he's had his fair share of Airlines crapping on him. He knows me from Orion, Excalibur and probably somewhere else....

Very Sad Day

A very sad day, I use Easyjet 5/6 times a year from EMA. Always good flights and crews. Booked to go to BCN in Sept and Nov and Malaga next May. It was nice being home 30 mins after landing. I sometimes use Brianair, but not if I can help it.

Maybe if Easyjet had expanded from the airport earlier, they may have found it to be a very profitable and important base. But as a result Easyjet no longer serve the Midlands...

All the best for the future SexyladyEZY and congrats on the baby!
