FR24 data suggests that it happened during the turn at the end of the runway at low speed.

Great news for DSA.

Without knowing the market there, I assume that would cause some degree of competition for catchment with Jet2 over at LBA?

I think this has been on the cards for a while, and the reason behind the terminal enhancements and extension will be going ahead soon.

Interesting developments. Will certainly give Jet2 a run for their money being situated halfway between their bases of Leeds and East Mids and now easier to get to via the motorways, at much cheaper prices.

Not just LBA and EMA, Newcastle and Teesside will welcome this news like a hole in the head.

They started with an expanded Europe sun spots at Luton and I would expect some Canaries stuff for next year at Doncaster as well as an increased offering from their existing base at Liverpool.

I wonder how much DSA is paying Wizz UK. The last time they gave sweeteners to an airline it didn't end well (Flybe).

Who says they are?

They have a 15-year relationship, and as stated previously, this has been on the cards for a while now.

Think you are comparing chalk with cheese - Wizz are in a far better financial position and will know the DSA market well having been there many years. This move will have a lot of people looking over their shoulders.

OMG, Timmy is now some sort of expert! One wonders why he didnít mention the negotiations in this post from January.

A quick reminder to his previous trolling. Only one person looking pretty stupid at the moment.
