For Egypt, possibly Hurgarda or Marsha Alam? They seem to have continued unabaited despite the Sharm issues?

dunno about anyone new venturing into egypt right now -
pretty darn well killed off poor old monarch due to the massive downturn since revolution then SSH metrojet crash
marsa alarm and hurghada still have UK flights but way lower than before.
all it needs is one more major security issue and that will be it
(does Thomson still go into Luxor?)

FYI
738/73MAX egypt if fine with max payload from most UK airports
asateaus 737-700 did Taba Aswan SSH Luxor etc no issues
733 is not restricted that much going down that way either range c2500m

Wonder what might have happened if Monarch were still trading with a 737 MAX fleet then?

airbus route for OM (previously 757) - they were not getting rid of them that quick

you do make a good valid point though - what were MON thinking if the whole fleet was 737MAX eventually -

Murcia san Javier Airport closes in December with fights swapping over, I wonder if the new Corvera Airport in Murcia will be classed as a new route?

Ah Corvera, the wonderful airport slap bang in the middle of nowhere and also in a no fly zone. It takes an extra 1/2 hour to/from the UK to detour past LEI to be able to land/takeoff. I can see Jet2 just ditching it altogether and transferring the flights to ALC.

Assuming they do carry on with it, it'll definitely be a 'New route', they'll need to make a song and dance about it to introduce the airport to everyone, and get the route selling

Spain must be the only country in the world to have three "brand new" airports all closed.
Castillon, Ciudad Real & Corvera. Meanwhile in the UK we can't even build runway without taking half a century.
I can't see why anyone would want to fly to Corvera ? The whole point of the airport was to service the proposed mega theme park, which will never see the light of day either. Might as well fly to Alicante.

Castellan is not closed, Corvera is not yet operational. Most who fly to Murcia go to the la Manga area and southwards. Please do your research please Mr Atis.

Manchester Summer'19 schedule released.
https://www.jet2.com/News/Summer_19_...ester_Airport/

Had a look also to see what the ALC and PMI bases are doing. At the moment only a requirement for 1x aircraft at ALC (2x based for Summer'18).

PMI still looking like 2x aircraft however lots of gaps despite STN the only UK base to still go on sale. Looks as though PMI crew, and possibly ALC if it does stay as 2x aircraft, could be doing most of the STN sectors.

If thats where the gaps are, it'll likely be operating these STN sectors. They won't want to keep that aircraft idle for longer than necessary.

Had a look at the MAN schedule too. Nice to see LRH making an entrance, following from EGC for S18, those lovely french cities. I fell sorry for the Corresponding LBA sectors on this though, surely MAN will just cannibalise these.

Also saw a 2nd A330 is coming into the fleet. Probably early days, but does anyone have an idea where this is coming from. I would have said Air Tanker, but all 4 A330's are spoken for...aren't they?

Since all the other bases are on sale, MAN from the 17th, i would say no later than the end of April. Maybe they've saved the best for last?

Zante - Frequency reduces from 2 to 1 x weekly.

Frequency Reductions from Week Commencing 29JUL19

Two possibilities come to mind.

The peak holiday season from Edinburgh is the first two weeks in July - school holidays in Scotland start at the end of June, and the first two weeks are the traditional 'Trades' holidays.

Or maybe an additional 738 is replacing a 733, although several of the routes you list would use a 738 anyway.

Good theory InOban.
For a couple of years, over the end july-Beginning Sep period, GLA would swap a 738 with a 733 from EMA, to help with Engligh summer hols. Maybe this year instead of that swap, they've just sent the entire aircraft down?

As to where it could go, could be any of the British bases (or all of them, if it operates 'W' Patterns)

Just a thought...

I am sure no coincidence that these dates match the period of the 9th aircraft based at BHX for the 6 - 7 week Midlands school holiday period.

Doubt it, the 757s are supposed to be staying for a while despite their age. Most, if not all of them recently had LCD screens retrofitted into the cockpits.
