7 x A321s acquired from Thomas Cook/Condor fleet
9 x A321s leased from various airlines for summer 2020
2 x A330s leased from Air Tanker for summer 2020
9 x B733s but two are for disposal early summer 2020
74 x B738s
6 x B738s may still be due to join the fleet for Summer 2020
1 x B738 lease from Air Europa for summer 2020
1 x B757 leased from Titan for summer 2020
11 x B757 but two are for disposal early summer 2020

So maybe something in the region of 116 aircraft......

Other airlines seem to manage with mixed fleets.

Jet2 also have a lot of their own standby aircraft planned into the programme to cover the inevitable.

It is 3 X A330-200, all from Air Tanker.

And 9 X A321 leased from other airlines - 4 A321 from Titan(Stansted), 2 A321 from Hi Fly(Man) and 3 A321 from Smartlynx(Birmingham). (That's so far!)

There is also currently 75 Jet2 B738 (not 74) - 5 have still to enter service.

The leased B757 from Titan is from May until end of July(Birmingham), until the 3rd A321 from Smartlynx arrives.

I'm under the understanding it is just 1 Hi Fly.

I would of thought the Titan 757 is for Jet2 A321over the Smart Lynx. Smart Lynx no longer have as much work, due to obvious reasons, therefore are good to go from when Jet2 require them. Therefore 3 Smart Lynx from April/May time.

Three were due in January (Ex.TCDD,DE DG) however that hasn't happened.
TCDH is due in May and DP/CD/CE don't have exact dates from what I can find other than they are due before S20.

Last I heard from the guys involved was March for first flights with April for entry into Jet2 service.

Obviously thereís a requirement to get the crews current again prior to this, which can be a little complicated.

320/321 Sims?

I know its in anorak question but if Jet2 only have Sims for their 737 fleet, whose Sims will they use for their growing Airbus fleet?
i wondered ( or is that 'wandered?') if they bought any TCX Sims etc.

Looks like HK had some issues on the STN TFS today, turned back shortly after departure. Rumour has it that it was a pressure problem and the masks in the cabin were dropped.
