I would imagine the Air Europa would be PMI based like last summer.

Some lively chatter here on LS1507 STN-LPA diverted via Brest.
Perhaps someone could enlighten them?

Does anyone know what the ex Transaero B737-800's will be registered as?

Will they continue the 'G-DRT_' registrations? (As in G-DRTC & G-DRTD).

G-DRT may well be one they would not want if you pronounce it as a child would G-dirt!

Pretty sure it's to do with their parent company 'Dart Group', so it'd be G-DaRT

It is related to the Dart Group, however it’s not G-DaRT, there are already 2 aeroplanes in the fleet with G-DRTA and G-DRTB, so that sequence might continue with the 2nd hand aeroplanes that arrive.

Seen on the Jet2 website, they're looking to operate upto 90 aircraft. Are they leasing any further aircraft that we don't know about?

Also they plan to take 12m people this year, almost double the number of pax in just 3/4 years. Excellent work

There seems to be two A330s aswell. The second one doesn't seem to have been confirmed yet but assume it will come from air tanker aswell.

Don't think the second A330 has been confirmed by anyone yet (from AirTanker or whoever), so it may or may not appear before Summer 18.

GVYGM or K has been handed back from TCX to Airtanker - it is widely rumoured that this will be the 2nd aircraft but is yet to be confirmed - likely not to happen at this rate but should happen summer 2019.

ECIDT has been confirmed as PMI based this summer.
