So they will based with UK contracts? Will mean they will release some of their block bookings at budget hotels around the airport?

Last summer Wizz had officially one aircraft based at Luton but in reality it was three. Will these existing three aircraft now be officially at Luton?

If you are relating to the application for the UK AOC it probably has to be read carefully..
The application is to take over the Wizz Hungary base @ LTN,expand that unit with G-dash a/c with service & a/c transferred from routes already flown.
The intention being Brexit ready.

RE Wizz - This is an interesting article from Romania. Maybe the plan for the UK AOC is to fly to the US? INSIDER / Wizz Air vrea sa zboare din Londra in Statele Unite si Canada ? Aeronews

Pabely -

I was trying to link to the S17 figures for comparison, but somehow the weblink address is the same as S18.

In S17 runway capacity was 31 in each hour from 08 to 21 inclusive. Max movements was 114 in any 4 hour period.

It looks as though runway capacity is being increased due to the western taxiway link opening.

Summer 2016 the limit was 114 movements in any 4 hour period.

I haven't got the figure for this summer but for winter 2017 for some reason that had dropped to 112 movements per any 4 hour period.

Next summer the rate has increased to 124 movements per any 4 hour period.

Maximum hourly rate

S2016 34
W2017 34
S2018 37

That figure should increase again when the taxiway is extended at the 26 end.

Summer 2016 there were 37 stands including 3 in reserve.
Summer 2018 looks like 41 stands are available but 2 are kept in reserve.

Luton to go transatlantic again?

http://aeronews.ro/insider-wizz-air-...ite-si-canada/

Translation

According to sources, Wizz Air wants to start transatlantic flights from London Luton Airport to New York and Toronto in March 2018.
Flights to the eastern coast of the United States would be operated with the A321ceo (Current Engine Option), a model that has an autonomy of 5950 km. Wizz Air has 22 in the fleet and has to receive 19 more by 2019, and in June it ordered 10, and they will enter the fleet in 2018 and 2019. Moreover, Jizsef Varadi, Wizz Air CEO, said that he wants to obtain a British Operator Certificate (AOC), which would allow the low-cost operator to start direct flights from London to the US, but also cancel out the effects of Brexit. If the flight information to the US confirms, Wizz Air will join Norwegian, WestJet, Aer Lingus, Icelandair, Air Canada and WOW Air operating transatlantic monocular aircraft. via pasazer.com

What Wizz Air says: "We do not comment on rumors and speculation in the press.

I am surprised no one has commented on the possibility of Wizz opening services to America and Canada from Luton. I would have thought it was the biggest good news story to come out of Luton this year.

A321 NEO due in 2019
Although the stated range of the A321CEO is 5950 Kim's , the distance from London to New York is 5571kms and Toronto 5713kms ( quick check on the web)
The NEO version has a range of 6850kms.

Wizz obviously think it's fine according to that release with a CEO version

With a normal Wizzair high density configuration........or would we see muti-class configuration like Primera will be running? If Jet Blue arrive from US as well, they were supposed to had talks already, then it will be a busy market segment!

Don't look into JetBlue too much just because they are supposed have already held talks with LTN management as an airline they would probably be in contact with many airports but it doesn't conclude to them ever flying from those airports. In my opinion if or when JetBlue do announce transatlantic flights it will be from STN rather than LTN.

Another 6 months and some of Luton's major infrastructure projects should be completed. Even though there will still be work taking place in the terminal I would hope that passengers perceptions will start to improve just a tad.

If Wizz do start transatlantic flights from Luton I think they will do better than Primera at Stansted this is not due to lack of demand but Wizz is a well know airline at Luton and primera isn’t In fact its not well known in the UK
Even though it’s great news for Stansted I fear if it fails people will think Stansted can’t attract and support transatlantic flights I wish it were a more well known airline
But if true I wish Wizz and Luton all the best.
