YL-LCQ has been reported as TCX summer lease for STN.

TCX operate to DLM this morning...1st service of season?

With the transition to summer schedules only the easyJet STN-AMS service appears to be prefixed EJU all others retain EZY.

Thomas Cook

Are Thomas Cook basing two aircraft at Stansted this summer? If so, both Smart Lynx?

Compared with an earlier edition of TCX short haul Summer`19 for STN the programme is now showing a healthy similar comparison to Summer`18.

Peak Summer`19 is now 34 departures pw over 15 destinations.

The 2nd Smart Lynx lease in for STN commenced 25.5 last year with the A320.

Definitely the 2nd a/c required but early days yet with source perhaps but very likely Smart Lynx would be assumed.

Since the TCX winter break at STN their radio callsign has changed to "Thomas Cook" from "Kestrel".

UPS Flights

Looks like UPS have added an extra flight to Stansted. Comes in from CGN via CDG as UPS218. Unsure if this is a temporary or permanent flight to their schedule. But a nice addition to the cargo volume levels anyway. with this flight it means we currently have three UPS aircraft day stopping x1 B757 and x2 B767ís. The B757 does position out to WAW at 1630.

The UPS B757 has operated for at least three seasons though but during the winter schedule the timings differ completely with the a/c departing to WAW in the early hours.

As you point out the a/c day stops with the summer schedules. Why the wide variation between summer & winter cargo who can say.Nice to see even so.

EZY has commenced STN/CDG Days1.4.5.7 with 31,000 customers predicted thru to end of Summer.

Weatherspoon`s opened their brand new £1.3m/3,650 sq m "Runway Bar" today on a new mezzanine level with seating for 200 customers.

As the name implies the new Bar has a 30m long window with views over airfield ops.

Weatherspoon`s say the existing Windmill Pub already serves 1.2m customers per year.

Stansted is at the present time now just 180,754 pax behind MAN in respect of the rolling 12 month totals.

MAN in previous Summer seasons has been the busier so time will tell.

Concur with Long Haul...The B word will not be helping.

Long Haul positive...

Due consideration must be given to the fact that STN of course operates the largest long haul all cargo network in the UK.
