These flights are Qatar Airways flights. If your getting information from FR24 it shows a code share with BA. These flights are operated by Qatar with mostly BA freight on board.
BA havenít run any cargo flights at Stansted since Global Supply Systems where shut down.

In terms of other cargo flights their is only one change today and thatís a TNT/Fedex flights coming in from Edinburgh tonight at 22:00

Looks like Tui have dropped Sharm this coming winter. Skiathos also appears to have been removed from sale for summer 20, but also for summer 21.

looking at the Romanian stats versus the UK, they should be getting danger money to come to the UK rather than self isolating. seriously though I would imagine that this has been taken into account.

AXY is Air X Charter of Malta. They often act as brokers so could be any other operator's aircraft under their flight numbers.

We don’t have 14 day self isolation rules in the country for inbound passengers unless they are from a cruise ship with the virus as far as I know.

From the BBC: "The firm has been working closely with Public Health England on safe transport arrangements and the group will be fully screened on arrival in the UK. Anyone found to have a temperature will be quarantined."

This Irish press are not very happy that Bulgarians can come in without any social distancing to do fruit picking.
"Separately, there is concern that earlier this week almost 200 fruit pickers flew from Bulgaria to Dublin on a Ryanair flight that allegedly lacked social distancing measures on board. Irish media cited a letter from purporting to be from a Ryanair employee which said the chartered flight put cabin crew at risk. Some politicians complained, saying it made no sense to import seasonal workers in the teeth of a pandemic when people in Ireland could not travel more than 2km from home."

In winter, SAS are due to fly 2x weekly to Lulea in northern Sweden - not flown before. The launch publicity came out at the beginning of March 2020 which was a bit unfortunate for timing. The only similiar routes I can think of are Ryanair's former STN-Skelleftea from 2014-2015 which had lousy yields in winter, SAS' ad hoc charter for Discover the World between Heathrow and Kiruna to take people to/from the ice hotel, and the odd Santa special day trip to places in Lapland

Anyone have thoughts on whether this route will actually go ahead ? I'm a bit dubious but interested to hear what others think

I'd say if tickets are still on sale then it's currently planned to go ahead, but frankly I don't think anybody really has the answer to that kind of question.

I think people need to be realistic and accept thereís quite a lot that wonít return, sadly that may even include Emirates. This isnít STN-specific but applicable to all airports. Even LHR will not be immune, though may hold up flights overall even if not passengers as routes are moved across (BA) or consolidated.

I hope Emirates donít leave STN, Iím due to fly with them next February. What is the likelihood, if at all possible to tell, that Emirates do leave?

I donít think EK will leave Stansted, itís been one of their better success stories of late in terms of performance expectations.
I think weíll see a reduction in seat numbers by downgrading a lot of services from A380 to 777 on U.K. routes, which of course wonít affect STN but will affect routes such as LGW.
