I think you will find that IG Avion stopped all their other Chateauroux routes at the same time that the SEN route ceased. Their two SF340s are back on what appears to be full time ad hoc charter work, presumably light freight.

Do not get too carried away Expressflight regarding Jota G-JOTE freight flights. A grand total of three revenue earning flights - two to Southend and one to Liverpool in October are not going to bring home the bacon so to speak. Let usvc hope things improve this month with the other three freight aircraft are parked up.

What then could be less of a "continuing downer" in postings...?

News that Santa is again adding to the pax numbers at SEN.

Two EZY forty five minute festive flights from SEN on 1.12.18 flown by Santa himself all in aid of local charities.

Have you ever been involved in the air freight business? You don't expect to be inundated with work as soon as you put the aircraft into the market, so one month in I'm sure they will not be concerned. The point I was trying to make was that Jota have very rarely operated revenue charter flights from/to SEN in the past, normally positioning elsewhere to do so, and it was refreshing to see three such flights within as many days.

I think they were EZY last year and JOTA in the years before that; if I'm wrong someone will no doubt put me straight!!

Oh come on SSB, we know SEN isn't your favourite airport, but asking whether the terminal is locked at night just before Guy Fawkes night is a bit obvious!! 🔥

Just a rhetorical & tongue in cheek post Dave perhaps you are not up to speed with deleted? postings elsewhere.

Note the "quote" marks.

I thought you were good at this?.

Not sure of November 5th`s sig either.

Up to speed? Me!!! Bless you!

Is this about the "prodders" debate on the STN thread?

If it is why not air your opinion there? It's totally irrelevant here. No time for sleeping at this airport.

Santa flights from SEN went on sale this morning and sold out within hours. There's a lesson there. Trouble is I haven't got a clue what it is!

Good to see. When I was young there was more of this sort of thing-my first flight was with Britannia Airways on a one hour pleasure flight during Luton Open Days and my second in a Cessna 172 that operated most Saturday afternoons from the spectators enclosure. It gets people in the air when they otherwise might not. It could happen from many airports-DSA,EXT,BOH,DTV, etc.

Do Easy have a spare aeroplane at SEN to facilitate this or are they bringing in a spare from somewhere else ( there always are more spares in the winter).

So Paderborn, new route from SEN with Adria. How did I miss that. I'm assuming it must have been discussed on here before ...

It certainly has been. I'm sure a quick search would show that.

Looks like Volotea/TUI weekly flights to PMI end after S19, assume because of competition from both RYR & EZY!
