Quite so, SARF. And I don't believe LTNman has any awareness of the fool he is making of himself by his continual obsessive troll posts.

Has it changed? Originally it was only the midweek early flights that weren’t operating. Mon/Fri/Sat/Sun were still 2x.

Glyn Jones speaking on Radio Essex said that over 60% of pax using SEN this summer are from London compared with 30% a couple of years ago. He seemed well aware of the importance of keeping the queues down and claimed that 99% of pax pass through security in under ten minutes. He predicts 3 to 3.5 million pax next year and confirms that planning permission has been granted for the expansion of the terminal. Are further airlines on the cards, I wonder.....?

They better get started on that terminal extension and a few more aircraft stands soon then if Glyn Jones is right with his prediction of 3 to 3.5 million pax next year.

Does prove the catchment area is bigger than thought despite the seaside location, Londonwise anything north of the river and east of the city is fair game. And the desire to avoid stanners at peak time

Just to clarify a few things,

shares being suspended are are those of Eddie Stobart, Stobart Group own around 12% of those shares available so a minor shareholder. Stobart Group also own the rights to the name/brand of Eddie Stobart which eddies pay group to use so those are the only connections.

Amazon

i am led to believe that these flights would be used to service the quite large Amazon facility at Tilbury and maybe if needs be some other locations around/inside the M25 should they need to.

All this info/rumour/news is out there in the public domain in some shape or form so no need to snipe at each other but also shows that a little bit of time spent searching the internet could save face for some people.

The question I have is if the Amazon deal works in Amazon's favour could they expand this operation without impeding the plans for pax flight expansion in the future and if so could SEN grow its footprint to accommodate this.

I can't see why any Amazon operation would need to utilise night slots - if you look at the current EU operations they all operate during daylight hours. Unless they were to operate in two waves with an overnight operation and a daytime operation eventually? The current UK hub is at East Midlands but with their chosen operator having many more aircraft on order I wonder if growth into other UK hubs is on their agenda, such as Southend, Teesside and maybe Edinburgh?

Who will be operating the SEN-LDY service?

Would have thought SEN-BHD also a viable service or perhaps that option may be under consideration?

Given Brexit and calls for control of borders, granted the CTA will be protected for both UK and RoI passport holders. How do security observe non UK or non RoI passport holders? Risk of Isis sympathisers exploiting CTA channel?

For Summer 2020 Loganair are adding a Saturday flight to GLA/SYY plus a third flight on Friday and Sunday and a second on Saturday to LDY. That makes LDY 16 weekly, +3 compared to this year’s STN schedule.

Why ISIS specifically? Anyone who is not a UK or Irish citizen who makes use of the channel is technically exploiting it. The implementation is a bit hit and miss. At the Irish end passports are always checked and almost always scanned now, but sometimes waved though at the smaller airports with only UK arrivals at the time. At the UK end I’ve never had my passport checked, in hundreds of entries.

I assumed the airlines informed the border force of travellers?

What you mean loads of ISIS sympathisers in ROI ?

Think it is ROI worried about unwillingness of UK security forces to tackle Islamic extremists.

Passenger lists are shared.

Targeted checks are more common on UK side now (as is denied permission to board an aircraft out of DUB for certain individuals) and co-operation is probably better than ever.

The easyJet schedules released this morning for SEN are identical in terms of destinations and frequencies to those released at this time last year.

I think the easyJet news is really positive and a vote of confidence in the airport. Rather than shrink operations in the face of so much uncertainty at the moment and some cut-throat competition from FR, our orange friends have decided to hold their ground.

I'm struggling to remember the last route easyJet dropped. It's definitely been a while and I do recall several contributors claiming that SEN had one the worst records for routes axed by the LCC 2 or 3 years ago.
