And an equal curiosity about our vocal resident travel industry 'analyst'? Anyone could say they do anything and claim authority so I suspect not worth pursuing

There's also rumors that a extra aircraft is being based at BFS based with new routes and increased on other routes.

B737-800 at Edin Summer 16

And a rumour that a B737-800 will join the fleet at Edinburgh from summer 16.
With possibly up to 12 new routes(according to another forum!)

New Routes at Edinburgh 16

Seems that there has been quite a few new routes added from Edinburgh for summer 16. Also a few to Tenerife, Lanzarote & Gran Canaria from Feb 16.

Quite a bit of expansion at Edinburgh, but judging by the number of flights, think it may be two B737-800 going to based there next year!

Jet2 Edinburgh S16

It's about time we see some expansion at EDI - and in great quantity too! The timing's perfect - Edinburgh Airport enjoys busiest April on record | Deadline News

It looks like at least 2x 737-800 are to be moved up to EDI for Summer 2016. The expansion programme is mainly to give greater variety of choice for Jet2holidays, as the routes are mainly Beach destinations. An interesting city addition of VIE is also to be offered - the only other airport LS operate the route is from MAN. Guess it makes sense linking the capital of Scotland to VIE, a route that up until now is not offered from EDI

The 12 New Routes are as Follows: Blue = 737-800 | Red = 737-300 (All Based on August 2016)

New Beach Routes Summer 2016:

LS727 Tenerife TFS, B737-800, (2x Weekly - Tue, Sat)
LS705 Lanzarote ACE, B737-800, (2x Weekly - Thu, Sun)
LS715 Gran Canaria LPA, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Mon)
LS731 Zante ZTH, B737-300, (2x Weekly - Tue, Sat)
LS719 Kefalonia EFL, B737-300, (1x Weekly - Wed)
LS713 Heraklion HER, B737-800, (2x Weekly - Mon, Fri)
LS725 Rhodes RHO, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Sat)
LS711 Dalaman DLM, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Fri)
LS709 Antalya AYT, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Thu)
LS721 Larnaca LCA, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Wed)
LS797 Paphos PFO, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Wed)

New City Route Summer 2016:

LS851 Vienna VIE, B737-300, (2x Weekly - Mon, Fri)

So at last - my once considered 'ludicrous' theory about expansion at EDI, has finally come to fruition. Well Done Jet2!

Most likely also an 733W to EDI, as the 733QC's won't make it all the way to EFL and ZTH.

I don't think you will find a 737-300 making it from Edinburgh to either Zante or Kefalonia! Certainly not a QC, so I expect they will be -800 routes too.

EFL and ZTH are both showing seat maps for the 733. The 733WL should have no problem with either route

Thanks Exasperated, I'd just realised when I posted it that I missed out the VIE routes (I've added them on ). Good to see them expanding, twice weekly to Vienna, almost putting EDI on par with MAN's 3x weekly service.
The updated schedule is as follows:

The 12 New Routes are as Follows: Blue = 737-800 | Red = 737-300 (All Based on August 2016)

New Beach Routes Summer 2016:

LS727 Tenerife TFS, B737-800, (2x Weekly - Tue, Sat)
LS705 Lanzarote ACE, B737-800, (2x Weekly - Thu, Sun)
LS715 Gran Canaria LPA, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Mon)
LS731 Zante ZTH, B737-300, (2x Weekly - Tue, Sat)
LS719 Kefalonia EFL, B737-300, (1x Weekly - Wed)
LS713 Heraklion HER, B737-800, (2x Weekly - Mon, Fri)
LS725 Rhodes RHO, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Sat)
LS711 Dalaman DLM, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Fri)
LS709 Antalya AYT, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Thu)
LS721 Larnaca LCA, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Wed)
LS797 Paphos PFO, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Wed)

New City Route Summer 2016:

LS851 Vienna VIE, B737-300, (2x Weekly - Mon, Fri)

I too would also envisage that a 733WL will be up in EDI for the ZTH and EFL routes. G-GDFO has been up at EDI already this winter for a few weeks, and her sister G-GDFM is up there now. A non-winglet 733 (not QC) could probably make the route also, but I would think that the 733WL is a better option - better fuel efficiency, greater range... makes more sense!

Is Newcastle a 2 or 3 738 base this year ? Only seen 2 operating out so far

Edit: GDFW positioned in from Norwich yesterday looks like a 3 base now

Yes, NCL is 3 738 based now - G-GDFS, G-GDFW, G-GDFY, and they're all in the air right now

Privilege Style B757 Summer 2015 Lease

Any news when the above will join the fleet? Or has the unexpected acquisition of G-JZHD meant that the B757 summer lease has been cancelled? Where is G-JZHD based?

It seems that an order for 10 x A320, 5 x A321 and a further 20 options on A320/321 may have been made. Should we expect an announcement soon?

All depends on what your definition of 'soon' is.

That would be pretty major news! Source?
