Still think it's a totally bonkers airport so for now, well done to Jet2 for commiting but don't be surprised if things don't work out like MJV did
The runway is not the problem. It's the angle of decent and the surrounding terrain that has yet to be proven with a passenger plane.

I believe the plan is that San Javier should be fully closed by end of Jan 2019 (but this is Spain so who knows). I can't access the Jet2 Facebook page for information at the moment so cannot confirm this, but other people posting on various forums in this region who have seen the Jet2 Facebook page are saying that Jet2 will reduce the number of routes to the Murcia region from 4 to 2 (ie 4 routes went into MJV and only 2 will go into Corvera when it opens) and Jet2 will strengthen their presence at Alicante/El-Altet. A lot of people on the Southern Costa Blanca used MJV for convenience but Corvera is now further than travelling to Alicante/El-Altet.

Anyone else a bit surprised STN still hasn't gone on sale for S19.

Either they're struggling with the airport (though with MAN/EMA also in the portfolio, this would seem unlikely), or they have something very special planned.

Looking at how they added extra capacity quite late on for this season, I’d be surprised if they were struggling with STN to be honest.

Obviously that doesn’t answer why STN is being launched later than all the other airports, but I’m sure we will find out in due course what they have planned.

I don't think they are struggling Planesilly. That extra capacity is coming from a further leased aircraft - which suggests that Jet2 at STN are not struggling but rather performing beyond the expectations.

It was also added quite late on in the year again suggesting that they can fill the plane, profitably.

Looking at the timetable ... Burgas has appeared in the drop down box. So would imagine today the timetable is going to be uploaded with the announcement tomorrow.

One last thing - could it be that Jet2 are waiting on STN to release the slots. If rumours are to believed that they want a 12 to 14 base aircraft they very much could be waiting on STN to confirm slots.

I should have made it slightly clearer. I meant to say they'd be struggling with communicating with the airports owners MAG (which also own MAN and EMA), whether they're still coming to an agreement

I'd heard the expansion rumours too. 12 seems more likely than 14. But i didn't think slots were too much of an issue at this stage, they normally get confirmed at Slot Conferences later in the year

I had heard 14 based aircraft but that was before the ALC and PMI based aircraft was announced.
so I would expect a minimum of 12 based aircraft for peak summer 2019 but wouldn’t be surprised if it was more.

Just a quick question,

Are this years leased a321/a330/757 aircraft fitted out with the jet2 cabin like VGYL was last year? Particularly the Titan 757 with it retaining the Titan livery and not recieving jet2 titles.

And does anybody know where the second a330 is coming from yet?

cheers

Yes, I know.

There isnít a 2nd A330 for S18, there will be 2 for S19 though.

Has anyone any updates on the four ex-Transaero B737-800's and know dates when they are due to start flying for Jet2?

The Titan 757 (which was for Leeds) appears to be replaced at STN TOM for a second 321.

G-POWH is most likely temporary subbing for the second A321, of which the delivery has been delayed it seems.

G-POWH is currently in STN and is substituting for A321 G-POWN.

ANYONE know why LS251 the 8.15 to FARO went around yesterday. Weather was good and whilst I saw it do this the climb out was pretty harsh. I understand it happens just wondered if anyone knew why. There was a third pilot in the cockpit so possible training?

Thanks
