Except most people will choose the shorter route. I see the short term used to have 15 minutes free but I guess too many cars could get in and get out in that time.

Used it once, took about 2 minutes. Assuming double the pax brings double the traffic, thatís 4 minutes. Perfectly ample

Single exit barrier and time of day comes to mind. Just takes one driving sitting there pressing the intercom.

Jesus. You can drop people off at Mac Donald’s round the corner and they can walk from there. It’s probably a shorter walk than the sh.tshow that is Stansted post security

Exactly what happened to me last year (as previous noted on this thread post 1783) 5 mins drop off a complete waste of time especially, for the person who has to answer the intercom and keep letting people out. the free 15 min drop off is not really that well known about. I don't know why they even had to change it? Were they worried that the drop off car park was getting full? Because I have never seen it that busy.

Am I missing something? Glyn Jones in the Echo article mentions the Guernsey route as the third new route achieved in January alone. What were the other two?

Anyway, imho Guernsey has been missing from SEN’s schedules for far too long, although whether there will be enough demand to justify a daily service remains to be seen. I would have thought a Saturday, Sunday and one midweek rotation would possibly satisfy demand, although I hope to be proved wrong.

If you're missing something then so am I. I'm sure there haven't been two other new SEN routes announced this month - yet (maybe he's getting ahead of himself).

Guernsey

Can't believe it; it's on the destinations area of SEN website already! They must have been listening to all the moans previously.

Ryanair Winter 2019 has just gone on sale, perhaps that might be the source of any other new routes? They tend to drip-feed them.

BHD and EDI were previously spoken about at the same time that Guernsey was first mentioned.

Spoken about by who? I not heard that. I wish it is true though.

You would of thought the man himself (or more likely the person who wrote his press release for him) should have noticed...

That interview is quite dated now. It also looks as though their passenger profiling is flawed regarding catchment moving west. I wonder how many of those are people like myself who book corporately but live locally. There arenít many residents in the EC postcodes.

They had a space to fill. Carlisle has been removed.

Carlisle

You're right DC3 Dave, it has gone but only in the last couple of days or so. Has anyone got any info on this? Is Carlisle route dead and burried?

Can anyone provide an update on the runway resurfacing? And is the terminal extension underway?
