Expansion

Jet2.com to create almost 1,000 new jobs - BBC News

Jet2 is to create nearly 1,000 new jobs, including 180 pilots, 700 cabin crew and 80 engineers.

The CEO is quoted: "We have exciting plans to expand the number of destinations we fly to, as well as the number of UK bases we fly from, and this means that our team is growing all the time too."

As much as I want them to succeed the expansion and the 30 brand new 737s with mortgages need paid. With the economic winds strengthening, a softening demand due to geopolitics and a step change in the business plan, are they not over exposing themselves to risk?

Jet2 has an ageing fleet and need new(er) aeroplanes. In today's market of cheap money, and the opportunity no doubt to screw Boeing on price in order for them to fill production slots before the introduction of the Max, what would be a more cost effective way to obtain new/additional aeroplanes? Aeroplanes cost money and airlines need aeroplanes.
With some of the order to replace existing airframes, expansion is significant but manageable in my opinion. With the exception of the seasonality of the business and it being UK centric (which need addressing), Jet2 are in a far stronger position than some of it's competitors. The BHX base is no doubt intended to heap more pressure on Monarch.

Jet2 4

I assume that the recruitment drive announced today is to cover the additional services already timetabled for S17.

Also, if Edinburgh is anything to go by, they must have made a tidy sum providing additional, short notice flights to the Spanish resorts this summer.

And still the share price continues its slow slide, so some are not convinced that its all go at no fun finder house.

Bristol is just over the river from Cardiff, not far to travel as a one a year trip to go on holiday.

300 of those jobs, 4 new based aircraft and hangar are all destined for MAN if the jungle drums are to be believed. Apparently stands will surround the hangar as that's the only place the new based a/c will fit ! The hangar is MON's and will be a nice bus trip around the airfield for pax boarding there.

Seems like every bugger in the country wants those extra jobs and new aircraft. I hope there's space to park them - very limited at HQ. New jobs are, of course, always welcome.

Stands cannot surround the hanger as it is technically landside, and there is no room as Air Livery, TCX, and Motor Transport have hangers there as well.

Well they are going over there somewhere...maybe on the ramp infront of the TCX hangar, which is close enough to the hangar for someone to describe it as I've heard. There is no room for them on T1 so makes sense they'll end up remote somewhere.

Personally i cannot see Jet2 setting up base at BRS, too much competition on the routes that they would seek to offer and ramp capacity issues for morning aircraft especially, pretty much rules out a base.

CWL for me would be the natural second option after STN (which i presume is the front-runner in the rumour stakes at this moment in time). Still a relatively untapped catchment since the demise of Baby all those years ago, many routes still underserved on what they once were, plus an article today has highlighted that the Cardiff City Region is 'Booming' at present.

Other options could be BOH, SOU, although the former pretty much serves its catchment well enough, with a pretty decent FR presence at the peak of Summer. SOU - relatively limited runway may hinder some of the routes, plus this serves its catchment quite well too.

For this number of jobs to be created i'm assuming there will be more than 1 new base opening in the next year or so.
