A nice HO building in the right place with some good parking to boot. Engineering arm which is mostly up the road in Brum now but some capacity for EZY Maintenance (they use them in the Winter anyhow), oh what to do with H89 then!

EZY to operate around 500 flights per week next summer, but that's not too far ahead of WZZ, who are currently operating about 350.

Which points to the fact that including routes from Easyjet, Tarom, Blue Air and Ryanair around half of all passengers using Luton are Eastern Europeans.

No evidence of a Thomas Cook presence @ LTN in 2018...credit their own Summer 18 short haul timetable in PDF format..

From the Luton rumour mill. Norwegian looking into setting up a UK base at Luton with Luton as the UK HQ using Monarch assets I here.

Monarch has such a long history at Luton which goes back 50 years from its inception. I hope it survives for another 50 years but if its name does disappear Norwegian could be very good for Luton and they could just snap up some of those new slots that will be coming to Luton with the completion of this phase of building work.

I guess it is a case of watch this space as easyjet and Wizz could do battle with a new boy on the Luton block.

I would suggest the prime targets are the slots for Manchester and Gatwick. A Luton base may just be a re-branding of current Monarch routes, should such a take over happen?

I think officially there is one based aircraft but in reality 3 Wizz aircraft night stopped for the summer peak. No idea about what is happening for the winter season or even now.

From what I'm being told Norwegian are not interested in short haul - specifically looking for Gatwick slots to expand long haul.

Could they not move some short haul from Gatwick freeing slots for long haul. Just a thought.

They are also looking for feeder traffic for the long-haul, thus the recent deal with easyJet and the 'failed' agreement with Ryanair.

Like Monarch, they have said they can't compete on SH, especially from the UK. So, I would rate that as unlikely.

I have always thought the same, easyJet should at least be 2 daily on weekends, with maybe an extra on a weekday, increasing to 9 weekly. Since Ryanair launched Faro head to head with easyJet, I have thought that maybe they might try LTN-IBZ.

Agree IBZ is a good money maker and if you look at STN on a Saturday they have 7 flights to Ibiza with multiple carriers it one of those routes that sell well and fill well.
