Be great to see Paris back on the departure boards. Itís been some time indeed.

Shame itís not daily but but a great add nonetheless!

Brilliant news for Stansted. It seems odd why no airline has done Paris for so long. I can see this route being very successful for EasyJet and Iíd hope it goes daily eventually.

Great addition for STN it has been missing for too long.

Paris would have been one of the original destinations from the "old" airport circa the Air UK base with the Fk27.

Further memory prompts indicate Air UK originally had commenced STN/Paris with a twice daily EMB 110 service in August 1983 !.

They obviously feel it will not dilute the 3x Daily at Luton, they saw off Transavia France, just hope RYR do not respond.

A senior delegation from the Chinese Ministry of Commerce was welcomed at STN yesterday to view progress on STN`s £600m investment programme & learn more about the opportunities that exist for Chinese airline to provide direct long haul services into STN.

Further to the LDM/Laudamotion VIE loadings, the airline is adding further frequency in 2019.

That great news, I hope they add some more destinations as well as increasing frequency in 2019.

Stansted Aviation College was officially opened at a ceremony today & has already welcomed 300 students...

The a/c donated to the College by Inflite is thought to be a WFU Challenger Biz Jet.

Great endeavour by MAG & on site companies & the many educational authorities involved.

Paris

Air UK/KLM UK (canít remember which) did switch to ORY at one point but Iím not sure it lasted long?

Gill Airways actually operated the flights towards the end of Air UK dayís with AT4 on behalf of Air UK on the Paris route and possibly some other routes of my memory serves me correct.

all of this is of course history...

If FR wanted to respond with a London-Paris route, would they really open Stansted-Beauvais ? Or even Stansted-Vatry ? I just can't see either having much pax demand

LDM/Laudamotion will build a base at STR next year but in terms of a STN service that may cannibalize majority shareholder RYR`s services from STN into the region.

First of the three extra flights by EK over the festive season arrived on schedule this morning operated by B77W in standard FCY config.

Nice to view the new LDM/Laudamotion livery too on an A320 rather than the hybrid BER colours.

Must be fresh out of the printshop. There aren't any pictures online, just renders! Was it possibly at STN for painting?

Doubt they would do it as no real benefit BUT come Brexit when using ferry / train it might be an option.

Re The Laudamotion new livery...

A/c was OE-LOB A320 operating the morning LDM314/5.

It is I believe the first a/c in the newly adopted Laudamotion livery.

Large red Lauda titles over white with smaller full titles in grey & red stylised flash/arrow on the tail.
