Not sure on the LBA B757 operator - doesnít look like Titan as they arenít configure to this.

Looks like BHX will be getting a Smart Lynx A321 y220 seats for summer.

STN is getting 2 A321ís with Y212 config. GPOWN confirmed and another A321 from Titan (sources but to be delivered to them yet)

GVYGL and GVYGM A332ís will be MAN based.

Awaiting confirmation of EC-IDT returning next year to PMI.

Are the two A330-200's confirmed for Manchester now?
I had heard that they were still trying to source the second one.

Also, are Titan not due to aquire 2 A330's from the Ex-Air Berlin fleet?

From the Newcastle thread

Beatts: Jet2 Rumour is that there are at least 2 new routes still to be announced for next summer 2018 from each base. Could be good.
Anyone know if this is true or want to speculate what these could be?

Apparantly they have filed slots for timescales that would fit Gibraltar. Speculation elsewhere is strong on this route. The filed intention is to use 757/737 which fit as does the intended flight length. Pure speculation though and could be many more alternative destinations. But good wherever, more options

GIB would be interesting. I've mentioned before that i couldn't see much opportunity for their holiday arm on the rock. Still, they've surprised us many times before.

Similar distance would be Seville? To complete their portfolio across the south of Spain and possibly more likely for package holidays

But GIB might fit in as a shorter city break style holiday. Packages for say 3 nights?

Very true, i just wasn't aware of there being too many hotels, unless they spill over into Spain.

Gib is very constrained on hotels, although a new Holiday Inn Express is due to open shortly on Devil`s Tower Road (walking distance from the Terminal). Although Gib would be a good fit if Jet2 decided to open up holidays in the beach area between there and Portugal. That said Seville would also fit that purpose with the addition of a very attractive short break destination and virtually no competition.

STN-GIB could be a fair bet with the demise of MON in the North London Market.

So GIB looks like a good contender.

Based on the distance from LON-GIB at approx 1,750km, Similar distance/ unserved destinations potentially on the radar include
Seville / Jerez - Spain
Naples / Bari / Sardinia - Italy
Podgorica - Montenegro

Depending which way you twist it, could be a potential case for any of these.
Or we could be jumping the gun completely, with it being extra capacity on similar routes...

In terms of possible routes.

GIB could be a contender. Fill in the Monarch gap at MAN/BHX as well as new routes to possibly GLA/STN.

NAP is already served from 6 bases.

Jerez. Thomson used to offer MAN flights, possibly still offer LGW flights, not 100% sure but not sure what the big market appeal could be?

Seville? Most bases seem to be filling in a holiday market role. Seville possibly could t provide the mass volume?

Bari/Sardinia. The southern part of mainland Italy has remained quite sparse on the British tourist scene, with only a handful of routes to the regions from the likes of Bari and Brindisi, they too only recently added.

Podgorica or Tivat could be good beds, Montenegro really on the up and up.

One not mentioned.. Bourgas? Bulgaria seems to be on the up again, with more flights added to Varna and Bourgas from the regions, surely only a matter of time before Jet2 enter the market.

I would suggest that of the passengers who fly to/from GiB do no not stop there at all, with passengers crossing the border into/from Spain.Regarding three day breaks in GIB, fair enough, but three hours is often too long for myself and my partner! Cannot see Newcastle being a goer it would have to be Luton or Stansted if anything.

Bulgaria?..Hmm interesting Lax and does make more sense. Jet2 unlike Monarch do have a business game plan and that centres around their IT business. Gib just doesn`t really fit that, but Bulgaria does.Or who knows,maybe both

As a Regular GIB flyer until Monarch went under I will say that a lot of customers who did use GIB did indeed cross the border to Spain, myself included.

I've heard lots of speculation of this route for the last few Months but I would not be surprised if EasyJet were to start LTN-GIB next summer, plus with the rumours about expanding their MAN base significantly they will possibly increase the frequency from there too.

We shall see I guess, but Jet2 would be a nice addition to GIB.

The main problem I can see is the choice of aircraft. With Jet2 operating Boeing 737/757 it is not the ideal aircraft to fly into GIB. I know Enter Air operated a charter into the airport a few months ago, but BA, easy and Monarch have used the A319/20 for a number between of years. A few years ago I was diverted to Malaga as an easy 320 had gone tech, with a Boeing 737 used to take the passengers to Gatwick. It is a captain's only landing at GIB with easy being a captain's departure as well. Unless Jet2 use a Titan Airbus I would very much doubt seeing them in RAF North Gibraltar.

The 757 is a long standing aircraft of choice at GIB..Monarch used them for some time down there, in the past, as did BA. Some of the recent Monarch repats were used with Titan`s 757. I agree there is a training requirement but Jet2 still have a number of 733`s which are a good fit. Bmi Baby used them there in the past and I understand, that the new 738`s are fitted with the `short field`performance package.

Filed slots from where? Seems many bricks being built with straw!

I would suggest the B757 is not a good fit for GIB especially after a Monarch one was almost written off a few years ago with the captain instantly dismissed. After a considerable time it was decided to repair it but apparently it was touch and go (no pun intended).

The 737-300 should be fine as Bmibaby used it on the EMA-GIB route about 5 years ago. Albeit certification may be required for some aircraft. I remember when second hand Monarch aircraft arrived they were not able to operate to into GIB when they first came, it was only a few Months later that they were able to run the route.
