I expect there will be more as this has only covered MAN and BHX. I expect NCL to get some additional flying along with STN and maybe BFS and GLA. The problem is securing the aircraft I think hence they have bought some Airbus A321s.

Alternate for BFI, for acceptance / delivery flights presumably (a bit late as theyve all been done already)

Off the top of my head, Jet2 has 35+ destinations in their Part C that are not in Europe. And that is just for Cat B/C airfields that need a brief, never mind all the hundreds of Cat A airfields that dont🤨🤨

I’d heard rumours about BRS or BOH and an announcement imminently - but nothing as of yet.

OOh well this is the Pprunemour network - Interesting though - Let's see!

BOH is Jet2's spiritual home after all.

And as for any speculation about new routes to Egypt North Africa Israel or Jordan I doubt very much Jet2 will venture into these.

I'm not sure why they'd want to. Presently there are large holes to fill at NCL, MAN, EMA and BHX. Because of the tightening of the market at those airports following the demise of Thomas Cook it's probably a better bet businesswise to plug any gaps there, and potentially gain market share from TUI, than move into new airports with the additional cost that that would involve.

Overstretching themselves could lead to disaster, it has happened all too often.

Jet2 venturing into the South-West is surely the next obvious strategic move for them?

They've developed strong market share already elsewhere in the UK. I can't see the likes of BFS, GLA, EDI, NCL, LBA, EMA growing much more beyond current levels as a short/mid-term plan and would hardly say there's big holes to fill just because Thomas Cook may have had one or two aircraft in each. The big strategic growth will come through MAN, BHX and STN with the potential for new bases.

I personally would expect to see at least one of BRS, BOH or CWL with at least 4 aircraft in the first year or two before any of the existing smaller bases get towards 9, 10, 11 aircraft.

Absolutely no chance of BOH or CWL getting 4 aircraft IMO and that is why they probably wont venture into that market. I think BRS would be an option but I do still think theres more chance of growth at existing bases with new routes.

I certainly wouldn't rule it out. Remember 4 aircraft for Jet2 is not nearly the same as 4 Ryanair based with additional non-based flying.

TUI are already heading towards 2 and 3 aircraft at BOH and CWL respectively and it's not unlike Jet2 to dwarf their presense elsewhere.

Did anybody really expect BHX and STN to each be 14-15 based only 3 years ago?

CWL is a 3 aircraft base during the summer already and next summer will be as well.

I would agree that there are hardly massive holes to fill with the demise of TCX. If anything, they may want to consolidate and lift yields at those locations. Unless slots are so scarce to warrant a land grab but I doubt it.

As for BOH, Jet2 have no presence at LGW so this could potentially pull demand away from the likes of easyJet and Norwegian. Could be quite strategic to do this especially if they did a split operation between BOH and SOU? 2 aircraft each.
