Dole

I think Ryanair flew Stansted-Dole for maybe a year about 7 years ago but dropped it - fares never seemed particularly high...

It was more recent than that as Dole-‘London’ Cambridge operates in 2012 and Ryanair came after that. I think they ran it year round then seasonally for a year or two, but it is a surprise it’s starting in winter.

TCX L/H

Is the TCX Long haul program this year being operated by TCX’s A/C or by another operator?

Operated by A330-300 OYVKG leased from Thomas Cook Scandinavia for the summer.

Promoted by who? It’s not particularly close to any resorts as far as I was aware. It’s quite some distance north from Geneva and Lyon.

I have put this post on the Stansted forum but it affects all London airport's. A well known sports travel company is unable to operate a charter flight to Samara on Saturday for the England v Sweden football match due to no night slots been available from any London airport.. The flight is being operated from East Midlands. A sign of things to come?

Yes, without doubt.

Well, no capacity to absorb anything out of the ordinary I’d have thought?

Personally I think the decision should have been LHR plus one of LGW or STN. But LHR was probably the right political call for the SE runway. If LGW had been chosen I don’t think LHR would ever have gotten the runway it needs. I think LGW has a better chance of getting a second runway so it can “compete” with LHR, other London airports, MAN and maybe even Dublin, Paris, Amsterdam, et al.

Global trading Britan is going to need to get people and goods on and off the island.

Ad-hoc charters, corporate traffic and freight flights will be pushed out of the top 4 London Airports to help capacity growth for the higher yield scheduled traffic, and to deliver on airport's noise obligations to government; either use quieter aircraft and/or to cut night flights.. This might help with context:

AirportWatch DfT confirms numbers of night flights ? till 2022 ? at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted will not be cut

The main problem Flitefone is that all the London airport's have used up all the available night slots so as you say no ad hoc charters. As regards freight flights not so sure about those being pushed out, must have my Amazon parcel before I have ordered it!

OK - so what were the "expectations?". Obviously they had a specific % in mind. Do you know SSB??

I suspect (for STN at least) it may also be the case they cannot secure any ground handling, with Swisssport now the only handling option available for passenger flights from the main terminal my understanding is they are maxed out at most times, and with this weekend being one of the busiest of the year as well they are concentrating on their current portfolio of airlines and refusing any ad-hoc work to try and ensure some level of service to their customers.

Night noise quotas need to be strictly adhered to and for ad-hoc extra night movements LHR is definitely out of the question. I suspect Gatwick, Stansted and Luton's night
quotas for this summer have been fully allocated to their scheduled traffic. In the case of Luton I understand that ad-hoc biz jets during the night period are not accepted.
So the alternative is to look elsewhere

Yes all London airport's which could handle the flight have used up all available slots so it is East Midlands at 0200 on Saturday morning on a Maleth Aero B737.

Which is why SEN is seeing a huge increase in night biz-jet traffic. The millions invested in the recently opened Stobart Jet Centre appears to be money well spent.
