The new service arrives and departs 25 minutes before the Ryanair Stansted flights.

It should look like this fairly soon
Contact stands
main apron
1r-9l=11
60-61=2
north apron
41r-42l=4
east apron
43l-45r=4
46-49=4
Non contact stands
main apron
10-15=8
pond
16-19=4
south apron
20-23r=6
cargo
30-31=2
The cargo stands are very rarely used for pax aircraft so if you dont count them it is 43
Stands 46 and 61 are at the moment still being used by the builders
overnight seems we will be full up

The builders are allegedly meant to hand their compounds back to the airport for the arrival of the 2 additional Ryanair aircraft. Can't be bothered to look it up but I think there is always meant be 2 spare stands available.

Do you class yourself in that category too? Being a user of LTN...

Many thanks for that information crunchynutter. Wizz really ramping things up now with Lviv starting today and Larnaca increasing to 10 weekly from a daily service.

Total stands

It was my impression there were to be 48 stands in total, but of that figure the operator allocates 10% for eventualities which covers two freight stands (part used) plus 3 spare plus 43 regular stands = 48.

Is this a sign that work will soon begin on taxiway parallel to Delta?

Looks like a temporary fence to separate part of the airfield from airside. There has been the odd digger working parallel to Delta for months now just digging random ditches and then nothing for weeks. Maybe this is indeed the start but when Bravo was extended all of the work was kept airside.

Work was meant to have started July as per the tender and includes de-icing pads / pavement https://www.theconstructionindex.co....tice-codenuts-

Rolling 12 months figures a mystery.

LLA own website stats section claims rolling 12 months equals 16,088,218 pax. However adding up full monthly pax figures from September 1st 2017 up to and including August 31st 2018 the total is 16,178,093. With another member in here quoting a higher pax figure for the twelve months same period itís confusing to say the least!

How are passengers on private aircraft (who don't pass through the main terminal) counted?

Wizz Air to add new Ljubljana flights
Wizz Air: London Stansted - Ljubljana
So, looking at the above links, Wizz are starting a new route between Stansted and Ljubljana, with the aircraft originating from STN and arriving back at the airport at 1am!

Could we be looking at Wizz night stopping or opening a new base down the road and other routes will be announced shortly?!

Wizz have made it very public that they have been extremely happy with their recent expansion from the UK and how new routes are performing. Could be looking at Wizz wanting to expand quicker than Luton can offer them for the London area, and are now having to look at neighbouring airports to allow expansion?!

As has previously been mentioned, the airport is now more or less full with overnight aircraft, now Ryanair have announced their new expansion with 2 more 738's and now is no room left at the LTN Inn!

Looks like Ryanair played their trump cards here, by quickly snatching those last two overnight apron spaces! Makes you wonder if it was more a strategical move, than just wanting to expand at Luton?! I'm sure they would deny that is the case.

On face value this looks rather odd, aircraft operated just two return flights and lands at Stansted at 1am. Short lead-in time, aircraft to position back to Luton? Aircraft based at Stansted to compete with easy, Ryanair and Jet2? Aircraft moved to Stansted to free up slots at Luton for new routes? More to come I think. New schedules to be announced in a few days when all will be revealed.

Seem to remember they put a foot in the door at Stansted a long time ago before making a hasty retreat. Wizz though is a different beast now.

They added STN and LGW to KTW at the same time and quickly dropped both. They currently of course also have an oddball LGW-OTP route.

More routes at STN will be announced for sure, but Iím certain it will be mere overflow until such time as they can obtain sufficient space at LTN.

As I said on the Stansted thread, it looks more like a mistake on the system. The supposed new route has the same flight numbers as the LTN flights. I'm sure all will be revealed in a couple days.

So is it business back to usual tomorrow, divisions accepted and VVIP flights in the small hours?

I am somewhat surprised that 6 months into the DART project not a great deal is happening apart from piling at the terminal station and collecting hardcore at Parkway. Certainty nothing seems to be happening regarding the digging out of the route and the construction of the A1081 bridge.

Some digging going on by the fire station (North side), and some prep work between Bravo 7 and Bravo 8 to shift the taxiway when needed I've been told. Cant see it happening before next summer tho.
