But all of this assumes that they really have purchased Airbus.

Of which there has been no credible evidence, other than posts from people on here, No Official Announcement although there was speculation that there would have been over a week ago. The only real evidence is the seat maps for some of next years flights.

Sadly this all seems like another series of wet leases from Smart Lynx and Titan to me, Hope I am wrong, I too have been through the pain of redundancy in this industry 3 times, 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.

We're going where the sun shines brightly, we're going where the sea is blue...a new destination route from Bournemouth Airport is unveiled here tomorrow. Find out where, and with what carrier, from 10am Tuesday, 22nd October.🏖

Admiral optimism but SOU is a complete no for 738 or A321 ops, and as for BOH, yes Jet2 had its spiritual home there, but both TUI and FR only base one 738 there year round, so 2 at BOH for Jet2 - not sure about that...Rumour was for TUI to have a 2nd 738 but even they are cautious at BOH and have reduced SOU ops for S20 by canning IBZ and 1 x PMI a week, with MAH remaining on a small 78 seat BE Q400.

BRS has seen around 3 or 4 TCK a/c lost but EZY TUI and FR all have very strong presence there
CWL was summer only TCK afaik?
EXT nothing for years (only TUI now for package holidays, plus FR muscling in)

Theres already been an internal comm to all depts about the introduction of Airbus it came out today.

To support growth and to give us additional capacity for Summer 2020, we are planning to introduce seven
Airbus A321s under our own Jet2.com Air Operator Certificate (AOC), in time it is likely more may follow. Four of these aircraft will be based in Manchester (MAN) and three will be based in Birmingham (BHX).
This is clearly a very exciting time and a return to Airbus operations for the Company having operated Airbus A300 freighters in the 1990s.
The Airbus A321s will be in the 220 seat configuration and along with our well established Boeing fleet, will help to continue to provide our customers with a fantastic experience going to and coming back from their well deserved holidays.
Once in service, planned for April 2020, they will be flying to all our current destinations and there will be additional aircraft in the Bases highlighted supporting, the current fleet

Exactly the same as we got in the Word on the Ground update then.

HM Govt has lifted the air travel ban into and out of SSH for UK flights -
SSH was a huge market in its hey day especially in the winter, but the Egypt downturn was pivotal in Monarch's demise.

Jet2 have wisely stayed well clear of Egypt and Tunisia up to now - I wonder what they are thinking?

Your statement is not backed up by the quote. The airline can lease aircraft and have them on the Jet2 AOC.

That was the point I was trying to raise. When the initial rumour was 4 A321's I assumed it would have been the 4 that TCX owned outright, but now the figure is 7 I'm thinking they may be leased.

It will be interesting to see if they're cheaper older frames (less sharklets) or whether they are newer more expensive frames (with sharklets). With Jet 2's history of 2nd hand frames you would say the former, however if they are intended as genuine 757 replacements the sharkleted ones would make more sense.

I understand it includes the 4x Airbus A321-231's G-TCVA/B/C/D (ex Monarch & Thomas Cook) machines which are currently sat in storage at Lasham.

If thats true, thats a great addition for Jet2, all four are only 5/6 years old. They'll be sure to get their money's worth out of them
