I have compiled a list (see below), based mainly on looking at FR24 of bases. Whilst I believe most of these to be correct (especially s/h at regional bases), LGW/MAN/BHX can be very changeable. Also, don’t quote me on 787s or leased aircraft as again, these can change lots. I’d welcome anyone with better knowledge to make any corrections.

Norwegian are operating flights for TUI Holidays from LGW, EXT and BOH -- these are not wet leases, just charter flight series all summer

Add in Volotea from SOU for PMI and IBZ
plus AlbaStar and Freebird from EXT and BOH

TUI are actually using Norwegian on an ACMI basis this year with flights operating under the BY flight code as opposed to D8. This is different to previous summers. I think itís 2 or 3 aircraft under this agreement.

BHX has been 9 based for a few days and should be all summer.

There has been three TUI 757's based most days until today when one positioned to Bristol. Titan 757 G-POWH is currently based which is operating the P & O Malta which was a TUI 757 last week.

Surprising to see Cardiff having more based aircraft than quite a few airports a lot bigger than it.

Yes i realise they do have big presence from the like of FR, Jet2 and EZY but they are still airports quite a few of them which are much bigger, so it was surprising to me to see CWL higher in the list than them.

TUI @ CWL

The same could be said for DSA, no?

Again, a base with no massive lo-co or Jet2 presence.

I’ve updated the list with the AlbaStar 738 at MAN. The Titan 757s (POWH and ZAPX) are not operating consistently for TOM out of any particular base (both have worked out of MAN and BHX) and are regularly operating non-TOM flights, hence they are not listed.

BHX is still 9 and I would say: -

3 x TUI B73H
2 x TUI B757
1 x OLY A321
1 x TUI 788
2 x Airline and aircraft varies. This morning was 3 x TUI 757's (One in empty from Luton), 3 x B73H (the 4th went to MAN), 1 x Titan 757 and 1 x OLY A321 and 1 x TUI 788. However I assume the Titan is off to DUS and the Wamos A332 will be operating.

It seems to be fast moving but TUI appear to be coping quite well at BHX.

So ... any crystal ball predictions on G-POWK from London Stansted. 12 and 19 May rotations to EFL .... likely to be the case on 26 May and 2 June? TUI have not contacted me to say that there would be a difference to the advertised a/c - 737- and when asked on the phone, were unable to say ...

Still think Pete, that the plan at BHX is to have 3 TUI 757s based all summer. Actually a few delays on the BHX flights today, the 2330 flight to Palma is showing delayed till 0200!

I was led to believe the 2 TUI 757s, G-CPEV and G-OOBH were to have their leases extended for the summer period to cover for the Max's? G-CPEV is still at LTN, and G-OOBH at St Athan, are they both undergoing heavy maintenance? and hence TUI are still short of aircraft? can anyone confirm this?

Those delays aren’t too bad. 28.5 hour delay on GLA-DLM flight for perspective.

G-OOBH is not in St Athan and will not be returning to TUI. G-OOBG is in St Athan and G-CPEV is in LTN. I am not within TUI so can't confirm anything - maybe someone can? Both of these aircraft have been idle for a while but the fact they haven’t gone anywhere perhaps suggests TUI intend to reinstate them?

EDIT: What a coincidence... G-CPEV operating LTN-MAN now.
