As much as i like Jet2, everyone on here seems to think they're Easyjet Killers, which i doubt...to a point

The main benefit from Easyjet at BFS/LGW is their economies of scale, the sheer number of based a/c at both bases mean that if Jet2 were to have any major impact, they'd need to go in just as hard as they did with STN, which they won't have the available aircraft or slots in destinations to make it work
That said, Jet2 do seem to have the better product with their holidays offering and their consumer awards, and the South of England might not be as price driven as their Northern heartlands might be.

Regardless, until Jet2 put in a new order, they won't have the aircraft to make it work, so Easyjet (and everyone else) can breath easier for now

Kavala

Someone on wikipedia using an anonymous login (ie just IP address) has edited the page for Kavala to say routes to Stansted and Berlin Schönefeld will start in mid May next year. The edit was then reverted very shortly afterwards. It looks like someone edited carefully rather than a kid wanting to vandalise.

Major works are due to end at Kavala make me wonder if this might be someone leaking info a bit too early and then realising the mistake.

Anyone else have thoughts ?

Wikipedia you cant trust any thing that's put on it.With it I think you have to wait and see if its true and try and find out about whats printed from other directions that can be trusted.

I wouldn't be surprised if Kavala was added to EZY's route network in the future. Unserved from Berlin, yet served from other DE cities by other carriers and only served by charters in London. Greek tourism booming at the movement too. Just wait and see I guess... Talking about STN, it's been confirmed that both Tel Aviv and Hurghada will operate year round in local press. So either cuts to other services in the peak 2019 season or maybe finally some growth at STN with EZY next year.

Well someone in the know knew of the STN-TLV route a good week or so before it was announced. They hinted at another route soon to be announced

Apparently another route to be announced soon aswell.
So I’m thinking Kavala makes sense. Let’s see.

With little room room to expand at LGW/LTN, MAG were promised an expanded network from EZY when they took on STN. Maybe we’ll see an eighth (or ninth) based unit for 2019?

Luton has 2 stands that will be put back into operation for summer 2019 so they are not quite full yet. They also had the opportunity to use some of the capacity created by the demise of Monarch but didn’t do so. If they did base an extra aircraft at Stansted I doubt it would be because of issues with Luton.

More generally issues at LTN are more than the provision of a couple of extra stands would rectify...actually may well compound those already existing issues.

Interesting...We will have to wait & see with EZY.

Luton is operating at I think 16.7 million passengers which is 1.3 million below its planning permission. The terminal work should be finished by Christmas although a couple of taxiways have yet to be started. Easyjet have been losing market share to Wizz at Luton but don't seem bothered. It will be interesting to see who grabs those last 2 stands for next year for night stoppers but with the airport now talking about another apron and more terminal improvements to add another 3 million passengers before the push to a terminal 2 I don't think the full signs will be going up just yet.

Notice that second A321NEO G-UZMB is in service from LGW and latest 320NEO G-UZHL has been delivered. G-UZHI has not returned from TLS since its problems in early Aug.

G-UZHI
Just for the record, it came back from TLS last Saturday (25th) and returned to service soon afterwards flying LGW-BFS. Hopefully now all sorted.

With the spring 2019 schedule release today, I've noticed that some UK-GVA winter seasonal routes aren't loaded to continue into April like they did this year and previously. The routes I've seen that this applies to appear to be SOU, BOH, ABZ and GLA to GVA. All are currently only bookable until the end of March. I haven't looked for others but can see that airports with year-round GVA services have theirs continue.Could this be due to the current Brexit uncertainty, or is there another schedule update due at a later date?

There seem to be a few others missing - Liverpool to Toulouse has nothing after March for example.

All winter seasonal flights and new routes launching in W18 seem to be ending on the last day of the previous schedule release.

A few examples are
SEN-BUD
SEN-ACE
SEN-TFS
SEN-GVA
STN-GVA
STN-KEF
STN-HRG
STN-TLV
LGW-WAW
LGW-AAR

One would assume that new routes to BUD, WAW and AAR will operate in the summer and STN's new TLV/HRG routes were announced as all year in press.

The ski/winter canary routes would operate surely operate in Easter as they have done every year. So there is more to come I am sure.
