Finally we will see a Jet2 B738 at BLK. It'll be the first scheduled one since early 2009 when RYR used to operate them!

So happy!

G-GDFR was previously with Austrian (OE-LNQ). It was seen in SNN in OS Livery. The Austrian title and logo had been removed.

Rumours last year were that Jet2 were going to look at LPL again this year? Anyone know anything? It would definetely be worth their while!

BOH

With the great success that Jet2 has experienced in the northern UK market since it's formation going to head to head with the likes of Easyjet, Monarch and Ryanair wouldn't it make sense for Jet2 to look futher south for future expansion perhaps towards Bournemouth which is totally under utilised with only Ryanair to compete with on scheduled flights for only 9 months of the year plus a single short seasonal flight with Easyjet to Geneva.

It has a long runway, a new terminal and a wide catchment area and is ripe for expansion if only a consistent operator were to offer a good selection of destinations on a yearly basis.

I know Bournemouth has it's drawbacks such as public transport links and not being on a main highway but the fact is there has always been a very limited choice at the airport over the years and not really catering to the needs of the wider catchment area.

I know Jet2 were going to fly from BOH to Belfast a few years ago but that's a different story but with the great advertising that Jet2 is known for I am sure that BOH could be a good opportunity for them.

In one word no, they have decided Liverpool has Easy and Ryan, so risky to start a new venture there

Its a shame, as I would have thought the new based aircraft in Lanzarote and Alicante could have been a good chance to gauge demand to non based airports in the UK.

ALC/ACE-LPL/BOH/STN/BHX could have been done. Its only 2 routes, but like I say, a good chance to see if the Jet2 brand could work at these airports. Ive missed out LGW as competition is rife here, and I don't think Jet2 could survive a price war down there.

I thought the ALC and ACE aircraft were only on standby to reduce costs under EU 261?

They are essentially standby aircraft, but the ACE aircraft has been given a flying roster. Flights to BLK/BFS/MAN at least.

EasyJet and Ryanair are also at Manchester and easyJet are heading for the same size at both airports and unfortanetely probably getting bigger at Manchester, surely Jet2 are in the same position at both airports especially as there is even more competition on some of their routes at Manchester.

There are so many un-served routes at LPL, it would be a goldmine for them!

An airline like Jet2, Monarch or thomson would hit the jackpot at LPL.

Jet 2 where established at Manchester Befor Easy And Ryan joined in THATS THE DIFFRENCE its just to much of a gamble at Liverpool in the current economic climate. In fact thats the prob at Liverpool Easy and Ryan rule the roost, and no airline will gamble money on a base there. Well for a few years anyway,money is just to tight

Jet2's ex Austrian Boeing 737-800WL, G-GDFR positioned from Manchester to Bournemouth this morning for its delayed paint job. It is hoped that G-GDFP will follow in a few days time.

Also looks like the first of the 2x leased Travel Service Boeing 737-800WL's OK-TSA has received an interim paint job in Norwich and is read for service.
