Considering what a good route this was do you think another carrier will take up this route now Level has gone ?

Wizz would give Easyjet a challenge.

AMS is very slot restricted, can't see IAG giving those up. Probably increase frequency on another member of the IAG Group.

There also appears to be a legal despite with the airport operator who is claiming force majeure to get out of contractual obligations. Apparently that will also have a further financial impact on the Council.
Can't see AENA walking away from the LLAO deal, long term good money to be made, just some normal business hard bargaining going on.

They indeed won't walk away but they don't want to pay the guaranteed minimum payments to LLAL regardless of the passenger count claiming force majeure which is written into the contract.

It gets better, potential outdoor cinema for one of the airport car parks. Council in discussions with third party. Every little helps I guess.

From Blue Swan:

Aena CEO Maurici Lucena reported the company plans to develop a new incentive scheme in 2020/2021 to encourage air traffic resumption post COVID-19 (El Espanol/Europa Press/Reuters, 18-Jun-2020). The scheme includes reductions in charges for airlines exceeding a certain threshold of movements, adjusted monthly according to traffic forecasts. Airlines are expected to benefit by around EUR25 million from the incentive programme.

I wonder if this will affect Luton as Aena are a principal in LLAOL.

Confirmation from ACL, in case it was needed, that FlyBosnia won't be flying to Luton in winter 2020/21
Ryanair seem to have been granted slots for a 3x weekly to Valencia - no idea if they'll actually use them

Out of interest how would one be able to see these lists? I had a look on the ACL website but couldnít find anything up to date. Lots of screenshots being shared on other forum threads and it is a really interesting source of info.

Hi Cloud1
If it helps I went via the ACL Main Page , select “ Latest Airport News “ from the top of the Page , scroll down to Results pdf files.
Select which pdf you want. ie “ Luton Airport W20 Initial Coordination Report “
Press and hold on selected file then select Download linked file from drop down box . (I use a I Pad )

Things starting to recover on the VVIP operators now, up to 51 movements on Thursday after hovering arounds 30+ for a few weeks now. Obviously if lockdown eases more then those chaps/chapesses will be able to go to their second homes in Ibiza, Mykonos & Cote d'Azur.
Obvoiusly this is about 50% of pre COVID ops but with runway slots not an issue currently we could see a mini surge this summer.

I am starting to think that Luton might be heading for a faster than expected recovery. 24 airline movements tomorrow between 6:00 and 8:00. Easyjet seem to be consolidating their north London operations to Luton and both Wizz and Easyjet have announced new Luton routes.

Is the Council painting a darker picture than reality as it tries to screw the government for free money?

With the resumption of the F1 season this weekend in Austria a mini airlift started today with a TUI Belgian 737-800, a JOTA 146. Tomorrow sees an Aurigny E195 all operating to Graz plus a number of executive aircraft.

Wouldn't be good business sense not to.
With EZY restarting tomorrow things looking much better but will there be bums on seats?

the Kerry route is a cash cow in a normal summer, itís more popular than the STN route and can be pretty pricey. Itís back at a reduced service until end of August then it ramps up from memory. Iíve never seen it less than 75% full in about fifty flights over the last couple of years.
