I'm not sure thats strictly true as lots of the bigger international carriers/routes post date those decisions by many years eg Delta, Air Canada R, Lufthansa. I'm not even sure, despite the initial subsidy, EK were 'forced' to GLA and 'forced' not to consider EDI at that time.

In the 90s I mean, to pay for the expansion of GLA, there was no wish to do more than the basics at EDI. Very similar at LHR, ironically which was starved of real expansion to pay for the all-new STN. Once T4 was built, LHR really began to slide in terms of Terminal infrastructure, I used LGW North for years as the facilities were way better than LHR T1. I wish I had flown through STN in the AirUK years, never did alas.
btw can't believe I only noticed "Vicount" less 's' when someone else pointed it out. #blind

Emirates

Would EK really upgauge both daily flights to the A380 straightaway? If they really were to bring the A380 to STN, my thinking is that both existing flights (EK66 and EK68) would be consolidated into a single daily operation.

On the subject of Emirates, is there any news on the new Emirates lounge to be built in satellite 1? If the airline/airport is preparing for daily 388 ops, then I take it construction has already started?

Some connections were near impossible with just the one flight. It would be pointless to go back to one. I wouldn’t be surprised if the later departure was changed to A380 and the daytime remained 777 to begin. Let’s see. We can only speculate at this stage.

It was daily last summer too. They also planned to operate a Stansted - Stavanger route but was cancelled when Wizz launched their Luton route.

It was daily only from late June to mid August last summer.
On the reservation site service during winter reduces to 3 weekly.

Wizz fares to SVG this winter look to mostly be around £9 so wouldn’t be surprised if it doesn’t last, would be great if Widerøe do add SVG or any other routes, STN-KRS fares are always high.

So what do we make of this...

London Stansted ACL Summer 2020

I’m not the best at reading these grids, but some interesting airlines listed such as;

Vueling to Paris and La Coruña
Correndon to Antalya (presume charter possibly TUI?)
Tus Airways to Larnaca
Indigo to Delhi
Nouvelair Tunise to Enfidha (presume charter possibly TUI?)

There is also mention of Ryanair UK on Turkish routes. Also appears to be extra slots allocated to BA Cityflyer?

I understand that not all of this actually comes to fruition, but definitely interesting. Especially Vueling.

Thoughts?
