Perhaps now review Jet 2 posts with SPANISH based A/C as posted last year.

Mr Mac
Hmmm I haven't heard this but sounds plausible considering the lack of package holidays at Liverpool and the fact that they wouldn't want to committ to a base due to Manchester and Blackpool.

How far off is this?

I have heard other things as well which could be very exciting...

Must admit haven't heard anything on the Jet 2 front for a while now. It's a possibility I suppose. Not sure a couple of flights a week to alicante would constitute very exciting news! If it was a 2 aircraft base like was apparently the plan last time around, then maybe... But I can't see it at the minute.

What other things have you heard Ezy7117?

It is to do with a Scandanavian airline that already operates into LJLA but I can't say anymore.

Given there is only one Scandinavian airline in LPL, you are hardly being
cryptic there are you. Anyway its not that, the news is the magazine, and as for the announcement being called exciting, the bold words show LPL airport do see it as just that, exciting. Its being held up slightly due to some last minute editing/printing issues, which is why it is subject to 'maybe' quotes:

New Magazine Launch for Liverpool Airport - VOYAGE

An exciting new magazine for Liverpool John Lennon Airport is being launched by communications agency Archetype at 5:30pm on Tuesday July 16th at Leafís latest venue Secret Space on Water St, Liverpool.

The magazine, called Voyage, will seek to capture the thrill and excitement of travelling to new destinations, as well as providing an insiderís guide to hot spots across Europe and beyond. It will have the look and design of a high-end consumer publication complemented by quality editorial spreads.

I follow Liverpool through social media website and they say they have something to announce very soon. Any ideas what this could be?

No someone claimed Norwegian were due to announce something, and that loads were 80% to full for July. Both were wrong.

EasyJet S14

EasyJet traffic seems very slightly down for Spring 2014 compared to this year. Still 7 aircraft but no flights to Nantes and nothing to Bordeaux until 14 June.

No Mahon or Newquay either but they will probably follow in the main summer period.

I believe Belfast is slightly less with only 3 flights on Tuesday's and Wednedsday's.

Also a couple of the Geneva flights appear to have a space for a W pattern in Geneva in-between the Liverpool flights, so the aircraft spends more time away from Liverpool.

Liverpool really need an injection of new routes/airlines quite urgently. Over 1million passengers have been lost in less than two years.

I don't see any mention of the new easyJet route to Larnaca whiich starts in March next year.

"EasyJet has gone on sale with its summer 2014 schedule which includes new flights to Romania, Venice, Cyprus and Bulgaria.


Starting next March, the airline will add services from Gatwick to Bucharest, from Manchester to Venice, from Liverpool to Larnaca and from Stansted to Sofia in Bulgaria."

Except none of those routes start in March!

Stansted-Sofia started last February so that is hardly new! Manchester-Venice also already operates.

Gatwick-Bucharest and Liverpool-Larnaca start October and November respectively, so are new for the spring season, but not new routes as such.

I don't see any mention of the new easyJet route to Larnaca whiich starts in March next year.
The number of flights and passengers though I still think is very slightly less than the same period this year (2013), but I could be mistaken.

And a route like Larnaca also increases the sector length of aircraft, which can also result in fewer flights as the aircraft is away from Liverpool for longer.

The schedules may not be completely finished yet and new routes are often not announced until Oct/Nov/Dec.

Hopefully we will see something for Summer 2014, we should definetely be seeing something from Wizz Air and hopefully Norwegian.

Norwegian is rolling out S14, but still nothing from Liverpool. There's still a few routes to go on yet though so maybe it will go on sale soon. If Norwegian do pull out I'm sure they would operate Copenhagen from Manchester instead.

WizzAir rolling out S14 too, only WAW added at the moment at 2x a week. They still haven't released GDN and KTW S14 schedules yet.

Flybe is the same as this year as it currently stands.

EasyJet growth looks unlikely as schedules seem complete and I'm not sure about any new airlines.

So I guess it's all down to O'Leary, or will even his airline continue to concentrate on Manchester? It sadly isn't looking much better for Liverpool, 2014 will probably be very similar to this year.

Just because the schedules are out doesn't mean that it's too late, Norwegian announced their Liverpool route around the 20th December, Ryanair usually announce new routes right up into January really and Wizz Air hinted at new routes for 2014 when they signed the new deal last year. Also Norwegians Gatwick base wasn't announced until the end of October last year.

Also with Ryanair a seventh based aircraft was hinted at for next year.

It has been reported on the DTV thread that a £100 fine will be imposed for dropping off/picking up passengers outside the termnal at Liverpool Airport.

Not a very passenger friendly policy in my opinion.
