The ASL B737 might be available in 2020, they already had a contract for TUI so they could perhaps base in Dublin and move a Sunwing up or just base in Belfast. Sunwing should be able to supply another without major problems.

That ASL 737-300 EI-STA has left their fleet and been sold to Klasjet. It flew Dublin-Tallinn on Oct 14th

there is probably not enough demand for TUI to add a second aircraft considering Jet2 may also add additional flights. I can see both TUI and Jet2 adding flights/capacity but through non based aircraft or in the case of TUI other operators.

Thanks, midfieldgeneral.
I saw EI-sTA's Tallinn trip and wondered what was going on. Up until then it seemed to be doing what I presume were pilgrimage flights.

TUI - Summer 2020

Few increases for Summer 2020

Dalaman - Up to 2x Weekly
Bourgas - Up to 2x Weekly
Reus - Up to 4x Weekly

Extra Dalaman & Bourgas are non based flights using Aberdeen aircraft I think

Could be further changes

Forgive me if Ive missed this (amongst the threads on cancellations) but it appears Ryanair have canned Girona as it was usually loaded by now for the past couple of summers. Also, Jet2 have changed their schedule to GRO for next summer to match the days FR were operating the last couple of summers.

LS flights now leaving BFS early morning, returning afternoon on Thursdays (it was Friday this year). And, leaving BFS early evening returning late evening on Mondays (was early Monday this year).

LS begin late May until late Sept which means a capacity drop and much shorter season on GRO route overall next year.

What exactly do tui base at ABZ? Would that be with a positioning flight or W routing?

Aberdeen was a Sunwing B738 this summer. It will be a 'W' Pattern routing.

Gotcha. Be interesting then if it's a cut for ABZ to increase BFS.

No cuts to ABZ, it will actually grow with an additional DLM on Mondays. As has been discussed in the TUI thread, the ABZ a/c (TOM 738 last year and SWG 738 this year) flew w-patterns into GLA and NCL from PMI/DLM/CFU. As GLA and NCL will now each gain an additional a/c for S20, these w-flights are no longer required. It looks like Thursdays will see ABZ-DLM-BFS-DLM-ABZ, and Fridays ABZ-CFU-BFS-CFU-ABZ. Based on when I checked yesterday, the Tue and Sat PMI flights do not appear to be w-ing into BFS; however, I wasnt able to see where they will be going. Theres a chance it could be BFS and the times will be updated but Im guessing probably another base or the likes of HUY.

Good to see a few extra flights to ACE and TFS
disappointing GRO dropped to one weekly since FR have dropped their twice weekly GRO service

Jet2

Looking at jet2 schedule for July 2020 its still 54 flights per week. The AGP Wednesday flight is now only running to 25/6/20? Surprising as I thought running this into the July holiday period would be popular
Still only 3 flights on Wednesday AM and 3 on Wednesday PM
