Around June this year the airport will start public consultations on itís 2020 - 2050 vision of expanding the airport to handle between 36 and 38 million passengers per year.

The vision should include a layout/map. The airport have been building up the land next to the fire training ground now for the last 2 or 3 years with a lot more to come with the digging out of the Dart. I would expect to see this airside land becoming useful for the first time.

So I spent a couple of hours this afternoon looking at the summer schedules. The below list is what I can see for Monday, 9th July 2018. I count a total of 39 based aircraft (24 x easyJet, 8 x Wizzair, 4 x Ryanair and 2 x TUI). On this particular day there are also flights operated by Blue Air, El Al, Vueling, Sun Express & Thomas Cook, making total movements of 336 between 5.55am and 03.05am. The most frequently served destinations on this day are Amsterdam (8 flights, 6 x easyJet, 2 x Vueling), Tel Aviv (6 flights, 3 x El Al, 2 x easyJet, 1 x Wizzair) and Bucharest (6 flights, 4 x Wizzair, 2 x Blue Air).

Thanks Clearland08, really good detailed timetable for a Monday at LTN. Didnít want to be picky but Sunexpress changed the timing and goes to Bodrum in the day from the morning arrival from Antalya. Also we see a Dalaman on Monday evenings from Thomas cook. Apart from that TC flight we have a full Monday which is known up till today. Only changes which could be possible in the future are for Air Nostrum and Aer Southeast.

Are there actually two Easyjet flights from Rome both arriving at 23.35?

No , there are two flights on the Monday, first arrives back at 13.10 and second at 23.35.
ClearLand08 obviously put a lot of effort in so one or two errors is not bad.
Think it makes 24 based EasyJet a/c

Anyone with inside info able to say whether the Air Nostrum / Iberia flights to San Sebastian and Vigo will return for summer 2018 ? I know that in previous years they have not been available to book until around Easter time but if Air Nostrum want to make a profit, it's getting a bit late to open reservations...

Should be 2 more stands for summer 2019 and possibly another 3 stands for 2020 if and when the biz jets are pushed out from around Signatures terminal 2.

Apologies if my previous post seemed churlish. It is indeed an excellent effort, and I'm sure the OP will welcome notice of any errors or omissions.

Thanks for spotting the errors guys (it doesn't bother me!) I've edited the original post for the record. It does indeed make 24 EasyJet a/c - is that 1 more than last summer?

Yes Easyjet appear to have 24 aircraft based at present and that is an increase of 1 on last summer. A few years ago they said they would double their presence at LTN so another six should be integrated into the fleet within the next few years. I guess this will only be possible once the airport start building more aprons!

Great chart ClearLand08 - can I ask where you got the chronological info to put it together?

I have always thought there is a market for a "who flies where" App which shows where you can go from your local airport or airports within a specified time window.

Seems that all the existing retail units in both arrivals and the check-in area will be closing at midnight. The retail units around the check-in area will make way for a bigger security area.

A question was asked on the airports Facebook page about the lack of a ceiling in the new ground floor terminal extension and the new canopy.
The airport confirmed a canopy will be built in phases but despite a follow up question about the lack of a ceiling they did not answer that question.

Makes me think that after being asked the question twice and choosing to ignore it the press department is too ashamed to admit the truth.

At least we know the canopy is coming though.

It's quite usual now to have an exposed ceiling. Our new Lidl has. It makes maintenance easier, and you don't get a cloud of dust when you move a panel.

1/ Yes I know but for starters the services are quite low so are in your face.

2/ This is meant to be the showcase entrance to a London Airport and not a discount supermarket.

3/ £180,000,000 spent and it doesn’t buy a ceiling or a finished look.

Saying that both the airport and Lidi focus on the same customer base so the great unwashed shouldn’t expect a ceiling

I would like to think that they forgot to answer the 2 part question but I am starting to have my doubts.

I echo previous comments about an open ceiling. Some of the new University buildings at Cranfield have them. Costs less, no void to hide nasty things etc.
