And there is an flight to go direct from LHR to TLV a little later! Usually a 739 around that time, perhaps bookings so strong from Luton that it justified the upgrade?

El Al flight tracker shows that as 00:45 departure from Heathrow except it is a Luton departure. Also how has that flight broken the Luton summer time ban?

One can only assume that it is part of the slots allowed over the summer period which includes Wizz, DHL and Sun Express.

I see that Wizz are starting service to Minsk from Budapest. Is there anywhere Wizz have started service to (beyond the ‘Iron Curtain’) that hasn’t gone on to be served from LTN? This is a fascinating destination I’d be interested in visiting!

El Al must have an allocation of night slots to accommodate their LY314 which operates 5 nights a week, STD 2330 local time, often delayed past midnight.

Has got to be on the cards, only direct route is through LGW

Wizz fly to Astana / NurSultan (renamed earlier this year) from Budapest. Never been linked to Luton nonstop by Wizz but probably out of commercially viable range with an A320 family aircraft anyway

Baku and Nis could be candidates for a Luton route

Rumour on the web that FlyBosnia will link Sarajevo to London - but both Gatwick and Luton thought to be in the running for these flights

Worth remembering that not all Wizz routes from Luton to central / eastern Europe work. Both Kharkiv and Tuzla have been dropped

If you are dropping off now, bring your electric car, it is now 75% cheaper!

So with G-WUKK having arrived, Wizzair now have 11 UK registered planes (G-WUKB through G-WUKL) made up of 7xA321 and 4xA320. Whilst they are all based at LTN, Wizzair has an interesting schedule which means only 9 of them require stands overnight. Last night, for example, G-WUKG was travelling to/from Constanta overnight and didn't arrive back to LTN until 07.05 (then departed to Bratislava at 11.10) and G-WUKL was travelling to/from Suceava overnight and landed back at LTN at 07.15 (then departed to Porto at 10.25). Nice use of scheduling given how full the overnight parking is.

I've also noticed the morning Krakow flight is operated with a W9 (Wizzair UK) flight number, and operates into the airport with the other inbound Wizzair rush in the mornings which are all W6 numbers (Wizzair HU), and then flys back off to Krakow 30 mins late using the same W9 flight number. Seems they might be basing a Wizz UK aircraft at Krakow?

Did not think LTN had any kind of ban...they do have noise quota periods for night time (23:30 - 06:00) but this allows up to 9650 movements annually in this period.

Allegedly in place. A few blind eyes have been turned like the European Cup Finals. https://www.signatureflight.com/even...noise-closures

Another El Al 777 in today - is that peak demand or the Heathrow strike?

I see the airport has increased its commercial passenger movements for winter 2019-20 by 430 to 38,778 from 38,348. If this has been reported before please accept my apologies.

Thumbs up ELAL 777 26 Intersection

I an confirm that I have witnessed at Dane Street (26/08 runway view) that quite a few ELAL 777 do indeed take off at the intersection 26 and seem to be airborne by the Firestation.
