They fit it out with a premium cabin/seats for the predominately long haul flights it operates over the winter.

It returned still in full economy so possibly there for some kind of other maintenance.

Cardiff Aviation seeks investment to turn around MRO business

A five-year contract with tour operator TUI to service Boeing 737s, 757s and 767s was the first under a new strategy of targeting larger, more lucrative airline support agreements.

Any body know what TUI UK a/c are operating in Scandiavia this winter and routes. I see flight mapper are not showing any 2019 flights, any guesses or has Thomson been changed in flight mapper to different category.

Saltburg Closure
I have seen a report that Saltburg is shut for much of May whilst the runway is rebuilt, and I've booked a family party of nine through the airport on TUI on 25 may returning a week later. Any idea please of what is intended for TUI services during the closure?

Many thanks for quick reply. I can see your logic but as we are going to Zell am See and many package holiday makers will be going south and east of Salzburg, I'm crossing my fingers for Innsbruck, if only to took up at the nearby mountains when still many miles from touchdown.

Is TUI withdrawing LPL-IBZ route for Summer 2019? It was flown on Mondays as LBA-IBZ-LPL-IBZ-LBA.

MAN-IBZ also sees 1 weekly flight less (the Thursday night rotation with the B787).
And I am not completely sure but I think GLA-IBZ also see a decrease of 1 weekly flight for Summer Season 2019 (the Mondays' one, maybe?)

Just wondering if its due to Ibiza Gov belatedly trying to clean its image up and the hardened drinkers and Party Partyers now looking for somwhere else to blight.
Shame though, they screwed it for everyone else who just wanted a nice holiday and Ibiza DOES have some beautiful, less in-your-face resorts. They, like us, went 'elsewhere' and never returned.

The first 757, G-CPEU has been wfu.

738 G-FDZA was also wfu at the beginning of October, with G-FDZJ due to follow soon, making way for G-TAWX and WY as well as the MAXs.

On a side note, I find it a bit strange that some TOM aircaft have already gone to Canada whilst a few Sunwing aircraft are still operating here for TOM.

Winter schedule starts tomorrow I believe, there have certainly been some interesting movements over the last week or so as always at the beginning/end of a season.

Does anyone know why TUI are operating a 787 on an evening rotation of AGP-DSA on Thursday 8th November? It appears to be a one-off and I can't find any information whatsoever as to the pattern, or where it's going afterwards.

It's strange as it's separate to the normal scheduled 737 flight earlier that same day.

Flight number is TOM7483 and I've booked a seat because hell, why not.

Around this time of year they usually send the cruise ships from Europe to the Caribbean, so it's most likely a cruise charter for one or two of these "positioning" cruises. They'll embark in Malaga and probably disembark in Barbados. These yearly relocations are surprisingly popular, I couldn't think of anything worse than crossing the Atlantic on a cruise ship.

Yeah theyíre all gone now. Iíve always found it a bit strange that they send so many of the youngest 737s over there. On that note, G-FDZJ flew BHX-AUH today so presumably is now wfu.

I saw that the NWI-TFS flew today. How are these being operated this year. I know that in the past there has been a based 737 at TFS during the winter operating flights to the likes of ABZ/NWI/LBA/HUY etc. Will there be such a base this year?

Is there any logic to which 737s head over to Canada or is it random?

Does anyone know the retirement plan for the early 738s in preparation for the impending MAX arrival?

The two oldest 738s (11 years) have been wfu but as far as I am aware these are being swapped with another TUI airline, meaning TOM will receive two newer 738s in their place (we have seen this happen before with TAWP and TAWR being swapped for TAWV and TAWW - that seemed a bit pointless to me). I donít think there are any real plans for retirement right now, the aircraft are not old. The MAXs will replace the 757s over the next few years before replacing 738s.
