TUI have quietly replaced the Wed summer Palma flight operated by Alba Star B738 to a scheduled Flybe service instead

Turkey flights are being operated again by Freebird A320 on some days and the based TUI aircraft on others

Norwegian airlines still pencilled in to operate to TFS on a Tuesday like BOH

I have heard Ryanair will also replace Flybe at NWI on the sun routes also, as flybe won't be keeping them beyond the Summer, so yes I believe it's true

[QUOTE=flybeboy;10408922]The alba star flight to palma has been replaced with a thursday flight based plane , the faro flight it was ops on thurs is now a flight ops by a cardiff based plane so car-faro-exe-faro-car.

As i already said the Alba Star flight has been canceled and now passengers have been moved on to the regular scheduled Flybe service on the Wednesday

The Flybe service to Faro is still being operated by the based EXT aircraft not CWL on a Thursday

Good to see the continuation of the Ryanair flights into the winter , its most likely that they are definitely testing the water big time to move in on Flybe services to the Med for a " seamless " transition !!!

Would imagine that Norwich will get the same service soon

New air park and expantion

Today a new air pakt has been given the go ahead at exeter airport, with a new air park being built next to flybe hangar ang long stay car park. This will mean a new runabout by car park 1 , widening the road down to the flybe training buiding and hilton hotel. Maybe flybe , conect have told them their staying or want more space. Does seem funney buiding a new air parl \ biz park if flybe hq, main, training pull out. The anoucement this will the airport can expaned outside and air side.

TUI seem to be having a bit of a cull this summer with Antalya now only operates in the month of July and August and the Wednesday Palma service operated first by Alba Star then moved to the scheduled FlyBe service has also been removed from the booking engine
Las Palmas was taken off for the summer in January

Finally the Hurghada winter flights for 19/20 have also been taken off sale which was a new service , possible they could re appear later

Consequent the Max grounding perhaps, going into the summer with 8 aircraft fewer than planned for an unknown period must be challenging!

Changes elsewhere too?

Nothing to do with the Max grounding as all 3rd party airlines were operating the cancelled flights and the
LPA flights were stopped well before as well , and more to do with the Norwegian airlines contract I think

According to a post on another forum yesterday the seat map showed 170 seats taken.

That's great news, off to a good start.. plus the seat map reveals a conservative number because not everyone chooses to pay to select and confirm a seat, right?

Ryanair for trim reasons used to block the first and last few rows (3 rows ?) so any seat map may not be accurate - not sure if they still do that?

Its not 100% accurate but with them it does give a good indication of what the loads are like.

Flybe are removing all jet operations from EXT at the end of Oct 2019. But this couldn't be more than 85,000 passengers a year right (?) so the airport will still likely maintain it's 'million' passenger accolade.

I suppose this now explains why Ryanair were invited in by Rigby. Just hope they don't come on to TUI routes.

Would expect to see Palma and Faro added for next summer
