Comical....
Never let reality get in the way of a good prejudicial viewpoint eh Skipness.
Your post is an attempt at baiting & can be ignored.
Somebodies getting their MAG's and BAA's confused
Ahhh fair point, apologies all, getting old and stupid.....good thread though, I promise to read more closely!!!!
Am I imagining it, or did Emirates Skycargo not serve STN with the B777F?

BTW I wouldn’t say I was prejudiced, I think that’s unfair. Play the ball, not the man. If you want to help me contextualise this better, (it’s how I learn), perhaps you could tell us what year BAA made the offer? Helps understand what era of Emirates growth this fits in

Egyptair Cargo

(After 15 yrs of absence) When does Egyptair Cargo plans to start flying to STN? Starting? Anybody have an idea? As a neighbour of Ostend Airport I’m just curious if they want to shift activity from OST to Stansted?
Maybe because they expect a hard Brexit, and access to (south) UK via Ostend might get difficult?
But of course could be also “just an expansion of their services”, they have two extra A330Fs on order.

Emirates Cargo has only run charter flights into Stansted before. Most commonly doing horse box charters.

Emirates

Emirates will be operating two flights on 14th and 21st December and the 03rd January. These flights are on sale on the Emirates website. Showing as a B777-300ER on all flights. Seat map is not currently available for these flights so unable to tell if it’s our standard three class configuration B77W or a different kind.

14/12
EK2643 DXB 0405-0755 STN
EK2644 STN 1400-0055 DXB

21/12
EK2643 DXB 0405-0755 STN
EK2644 STN 1400-0055 DXB

03/01
EK2643 DXB 0350-0740 STN
EK2644 STN 1400-0056 DXB

Also I have passenger figures for Emirates for the last week.

Inbound/Outbound
22/11 187/297
23/11 199/275
24/11 238/238
25/11 278/242
26/11 308/237
27/11 257/243
28/11 249/___ (figures unavailable)

Still very good figures in my eyes for the time of year. I do know that today First and Business where both totally sold out. Which I think is extremely good.

Very useful figures from Emirates...

The 3 extra holiday period services with their timings could almost be a reflection & dummy of an intended schedule for the eventual second daily.

MAG reporting 6 months stats ended 30 September `18...

STN 6 months pax traffic 15.9m + 8.9%.

MAN 6 months pax traffic 16.6m flat growth.

Both large airports in the group now nearly level pegging in pax volume.

MAG CEO says in an interview today expects to unveil two long haul routes at STN in 2019 & one mid haul route.

STN expects near to 30m pax in 2019 financial year.

Mid-haul could be Jordan with Ryanair. They’ve launched Amman and Aqaba from various non-UK airports. Otherwise likely to be Cape Verde with TUI or Thomas Cook I reckon.

I wonder if one of the routes could be Emirates 2nd daily.
worth a look up at Manchester I think for inspiration on the other routes, Yes Cape Verde would be a nice addition with TUI or Thomas Cook.

Yes India isn’t really mid-haul. More long haul to be honest.

Scoot to Singapore has been mentioned in the past. As has JetBlue to NY and/or Boston.

Then again it it could be a total ‘didn’t see that one coming’. A bit like back in the day when BA under the guise of CF announced their intentions to operate from Stansted.

Maybe Level ? Can I just ask before we get too carried away, are we talking new routes or in talks to gain new routes?

My Guess...

Emirates: Second daily
jetblue: New York and/or Boston
Pobeda: Kaliningrad or Moscow
Pegasus or AtlasGlobal: Ankara

I’d personally love to see a couple of unserved European Routes added to.
Paris CDG or Orly, Düsseldorf, Helsinki, Brussels. I’d even love to see Gibraltar added.

Ryanair going to Amman and Aqaba: This would depend on the speed on the MAX200 as I know the current -800’s can’t make it their and back within the crews flight hours.
Cape Verde: Possibly a chance this could happen but I’d think for W19 at a low chance but more likely S20 if it does happen. I only say this as I know S19 and W19 is already on sale.
But with Airlines and the current world who knows what will happen.
