Think you might have got confused on this one , the Titan B 757 G -ZAPX positions into SEN today from STN to operate the service

Not really - You have TOM/TUI but they will not fill a 757 on an IT charter series out of SEN several times each week - Do they still use Volotea for their SEN IT ops?

Icelandair and Jet2 are the 2 other major EU 757 operators with sizeable fleets for now but they are both retiring air-frames

Condor/TCK/MT now have 16 757-300 which are basically unsuitable for SEN operations

Any way you can confirm that, runwayman? If not we'll have to wait for the official February stats. If it is 202 that must be the the most pax departing SEN on a single aircraft.

Apparently Loganair are to announce 3 Scottish destinations from SEN at a press conference at the airport sometime this week. Anyone heard anything regarding this and whether it’s true? Perhaps ex-BMI aircraft being put to use?

Or has someone got their wires crossed and it’s just a Carlisle route network update which is due imminently?

Where did you hear this tws123? Would be good if turns out to be true, however 3 Scottish destinations seems a bit hard to believe. As you said it may just be the long awaited Carlisle route announcement, hopefully we will know very soon.

A reporter for Business Travel News tweeted this earlier today:

“LOGANAIR will introduce its first London route on Wednesday (Derry to Stansted) and will also announce at a Southend Airport press conference three Scottish destinations. Stobart Directors will be in attendance. Full details next Monday in BTN.”

Interesting. Expressflight is usually one of the first to be aware of new developments at SEN. Any inkling, EF?

Are ‘Business Travel News’ forgetting Loganair already fly from Stansted to Dundee?

In a word, "Yes"! - hopefully the rest of the comment is more reliable. Presumably GLA, EDI, ABZ?

I saw a post recently concerning Loganair starting SEN-INV, for which the poster was mocked. Perhaps the laughter was premature.

INV ABZ GLA are the only Scottish bases with spare ERJ capacity so I'd think they'd be the routes. Maybe thats why INV just got another ERJ.

I heard in January that Loganair had held meetings with the SEN management and would operate three Scottish routes. I am pretty sure one was Inverness, and the other Edinburgh or Aberdeen we will find out next week. It has nothing to do with Carlisle.

Wouldn't be at all surprised to see an SEN-MME-ABZ appear at some point... it links two (potentially, at least) Stobart bases, gives MME a 'London' link, as well as stepping on Eastern/Flybe's toes once again on a big oil market MME-ABZ. It also offers the ability to fill seats between ABZ and SEN offering an alternative to Eastern/Flybe's LCY service if timed correctly.

I had heard that this was imminent a couple of weeks ago so I'm as sure as I can be that it will be announced. I haven't heard which routes it will be although EDI and BHD were mentioned.

Southend airport now listed on the Loganair website as a destination. Also listed as a "To" destination from Edinburgh and Aberdeen.
