I wondered if Jet2 might even be interested in domestic if EZY went altogether, given they have bases at each of BFS, EDI and GLA. On a similar note I see today is the first day of EZY ops, a couple of flights this evening to Scotland. Quite a few airlines in today.

Air Albania planning to fly 1x weekly, (Sunday evening), Stansted-Tirana from 26 July. Daily cases per 100,000 population over last 10 days looks about 3 times higher than the UK though... not sure whether flights really will start later this month

Id be more surprised if it ever does happen.

Once a week business class only to Barbados on an airline that no one has heard of is just crazy when up against BA daily with a Avios too.

The article mentions Eos using the Private terminal at Stansted. IIRC they used the main terminal and Sat 1 for their flights.

Emirates are only resuming service on their afternoon departure from STN from 1st September until S21, where the evening departure is planned to resume.

Agreed, that would seem to be consistent with other airports including LGW which is also down to 1 per day initially - so even more of a drop. It gives some reassurance if it were needed the STN service stands on its own two feet.

I wonder if there are strong cargo flows into STN? Its a big cargo airport which might contribute to the overall attractiveness of the airport.

Possibly but my own experiences of flying on it or seeing it board are that on the passenger side its packed to the rafters including most crucially up front.

Yes this is true, even when the flight had lighter loads. The percentage of people in first and business was always higher than economy. Ive cant recall working on a flight and not seeing at least 2 in first.

Also I had to speak to Emirates yesterday as this has changed my booking with the drop to one daily. The rep I spoke to said flights might start sooner than scheduled depending on demand.

Albawings appear to have dropped their Stansted-Tirana route
Air Albania opening the route, along with Easyjet starting Gatwick-Tirana might have something to do with it...

Several new appointments within the MAG estate results in a new MD for STN the former COO.

At least the appointment will bring a sound knowledge of the airport & continuity as such.

Stansted Express.

Has commenced this week introduction of the new Stadler 12 carriage electric trains between Liverpool Street & STN.

First two are now in service from an order for 12 and with a seating capacity of 767 provides an increase of 83% over older 8 carriage units.

New trains

Though no longer any first class accommodation I believe, which is a shame - but still a huge improvement all round.

Non- core property sold off

Assuming this property will be the northside business park at Stansted. Always been rumours of warehousing.
