Buster - the debt per head of population is £2,750, not £2.75m

LTNman - interest rates depend on when the loans were taken out. If you remember, interest rates were at 15% in the early 90s, 6% in the mid-noughties and at their current levels only since about 2010.

Add the cost of the borrowings for the dart at £225m and a more realistic price tag of around £1bn for a new airport attached to the existing runway and the money borrowed works out close to £17,000 per household.

Silverjet Terminal

Hi all,

This might be a bit off the topic but I was just wondering,

- What ever happened to the private terminal when Silverjet went under. Is it empty? If it is occupied who is doing what?

- While very unlikely if another premium airline ever came knocking where do you think would be the best place to set up a similar operation to the Silverjet terminal. By this I mean empty space (not anywhere that would require a new building.)

obviously never going to happen, just thought it would be interesting to hear your opinions.

Thanks,

james

By my records it will be 1 less rotation than this year, where there were 2 x weekly Ankara flights (Tue & Sun).

The temporary arrivals entrance was indeed the entrance to Silverjet. Their terminal basically became an airside staff access route and now it is being converted to an extended baggage hall. In fact I think part of it became the newly opened domestic reclaim area.

If Luton has space. Some traffic to Farnborough, Stansted and maybe even Southend and Cranfield?

If you are doing business in Milton Keynes/North London areas I doubt very much you would want to be flying into Southend. Cranfield, Luton or Oxford yes. Unfortunately two of those do not have 24 hours opening. The two stands back in operation would be taken up by the two extra Ryanair aircraft I would have thought.

I'm sure users of Northolt do so because of it's location, it is only open from 08:00 to 20:00 Mon - Fri, limited hours at weekend and up to 20 civilian movements a day so traffic would not be affected by any other airport opening hours. If you are visiting say The Queen or a Corporate Head Office in West London, why would you go to Southend! Luton, Farnborough or Oxford yes. If you wanted to land in London at 3AM in the Summer then yes Southend as there are zero other options.

People's Vienna line has been rumoured to be looking at London for a while but after their route to Cologne was closed I never thought they would even look at London

Assuming People's really do operate to London and don't just hand the slots back...
People's offer a high level of service in return for a high fare. I am surprised they would choose Luton rather than (for example) London City

Here is the link for anyone interested.

Interested to see what the new Easyjet route will be. Most recent new routes from them have tended to be 2/3/4 weekly (Gibraltar and Krakow being the latest)
Daily indicates the route will be popular

I thought TUI have already dropped Hurghada?

I suspect this would be linked to skiing and operate at weekends, so LCY would be of little use. Nonetheless, I would also expect it to be on sale by now so I reckon it can be discounted.

Stand 46 was already back in use by yesterday, not sure about 61 although it seems to have ground equipment on site in the above photo.
