Jet2 more likely to set up a Bristol base in my opinion.

I was just jesting really.
I'm not sure, in NORMAL times, that BRS would have the ability to take extra flights, the locals would whinge magnificently, the A38 couldn't cope
Whereas CWL, and Wales would welcome them with open arms.
For now Jet2 have enough to think about for 2021. Having had TWO Jet2 holidays cancelled this year (Bodrum then Fuerteventura) I have ZERO intentions of considering our Fly To holidays for 2021 until we can see ithat there is some kind of handle on this virus, particularly the 20 - 40 age groups lack of social responsibility and government realisation that the Rugrats migyt not be ill with it but ARE the Carriers who are killing Granny.
​​​​​ My opinion only.

Looks like 56 departures a week in August 2020, so 4 based aircraft

If you don't mind me asking, how do we know these bristol routes are confirmed? or do we not? I get that the flights are bookable on the website but weirdly not on the holidays component of the website in my research at this time.

I suppose BRS and Jet2 has been made possible now as no doubt EasyJet are probably reducing it's outlook into 2021. With a shrinking fleet, I would imagine the slot constrained airports like LGW, CDG and AMS will be protected at all costs.

With optimistic projections from Wizz, Ryanair and now Jet2 it would seem on next summer, it begs the question really have EasyJet potentially put themselves in an incredibly difficult position even to recover long term growth while competitors pile on capacity, albeit driven by discounting. And doesn't bode well in my mind for EasyJet holidays to have a meaningful impact on Jet2.

I do wonder now if LGW could be on the cards for a Jet2 base as opportunities will surely become available there.

Jet2 have announced the new base at BRS for summer 2021. Fantastic news in these very difficult times.

Great news for BRS.
Maybe airport capacity available due to Easy hwving binned it as a Base.
One mans meat etc etc. Easy may regret that decision in the fullness of time but meanwhile Good Luck, Jet2.

Think you should double check what you’re saying. One of EZY most profitable bases.

OK, so why does the BRS - NCL or is it now really NCL - BRS route use NCL based arcreft, not BRS - or am I misinformed?

Didnít Ryanair pull out of BRS. Donít think Ezy reduced the number of aircraft based there.

Suspect you are misinformed, easyJet donít have any aircraft based in NCL.

Easyjet has closed NCL, STN and SEN bases just a few weeks ago.

Good for Jet2! They seems to be very shrewd as to what they do, and the general feedback as to how they have been treating their customers regarding refunds and re-bookings are only positive.

Time we had a choice down here, and I wish all at Jet2 good luck with this new base.

BRS is one of EZYs biggest UK bases and reportedly quite profitable for them. 16 or 17 aircraft were planned before covid hit.

Capacity has probably come from TCX and Bmi regional going bust.
