I think the Ultra Low Cost carriers prefer a total wheels on to wheels off less than 1hr, consisting of 15' taxi in, 30' turn round and 15' taxi out. I'm not sure that's achievable at LGW, so Wizz and RYR will steer clear.

It's all about yield and that was always good at LGW. RYR even operator at AMS nowadays and that can have very big taxi times.

Ryanair and Wizz both operate to airports with constant airport slots, ATC slots, congestion, holdings, extended taxi times, extended ground times, slow handling agents, manana attitude etc.(Fiumicino, Lisbon, Malpensa, Madrid, Barcelona, Frankfurt, Berlin, Hamburg, Copenhagen, Keflavik, Oslo, Tel-Aviv, Moscow etc, just to name a few) but LGW is a unique place in terms of having all these problems at the same time.

Does this mean that Wizzair once again will not get any more coveted slots at LGW for S22 since U2 snagged them from BA or is there still room for them too?

It works nicely for both BA and easyJet to keep Wizz and Ryanair out - in the short-term easy are in a position to use them, and BA see them as being less of a threat in the long-term.

Routings

Over the last week or so I’ve noticed on Flightradar24 that EasyJet take a different (southern) route from KLM on AMS-MAN, both flights depart at roughly the same time but KLM (northern route) has arrived earlier and with a quicker block time on each occasion, today with an almost 20% shorter trip time. Can someone who arranges flight plans please explain this difference.

Have EZY finally woken up? Hearing they are trying to undefer those NEO deliveries, we already know they are looking to leases 6 A320 for S22.
Also defer phasing out those older 319s if they can agree terms with the leasors.

Does anyone here work for Easy or has done in the past?
I'm looking for a change from my current job within the aviation industry and was wondering if anyone was willing to give me their honest opinion on their views within the company?
I'm in the process of trawling through their open vacancies at the moment...Manchester or Gatwick stand out for me as their biggest UK bases, but also willing to travel further afield.
Thanks and all the best for 2022

FROM CH AVIATION

04.02.2022 - 07:04 UTCeasyJet (U2, London Luton) is planning to wet-lease six A320 Family aircraft from SmartLynx Airlines (6Y, Riga) during the summer 2022 season to support its operations out of London Gatwick, ch-aviation has learned.

Spokesman Andy Cockburn confirmed the contracts would begin with the onset of the summer season.

The Latvian ACMI/charter specialist operates six A320-200s and six A321-200s, the ch-aviation fleets advanced module shows, while sister carrier SmartLynx Airlines Estonia (MYX, Tallinn Lennart Meri) operates a further four A320-200s. SmartLynx Airlines Malta (LYX, Malta Int'l) operates seven A320-200s, two A321-200s, one A321-200(P2F), one A321-200(PCF), and six A330-300s.

All of easyJet's flights out of Gatwick are operated by easyJet UK (U2, London Luton). The LCC is by far Gatwick's largest operator with a 48% market share by scheduled weekly departure capacity.

Curious to know if these ACMI aircraft will be able to fly UK domestic routes from LGW given they will be LY, YL and 9H reg.

Why not?
Prior to its collapse (but still post-Brexit), Stobart Air (EI-reg) (and Aer Lingus?) were flying BHD-UK domestic routes technically on an ACMI basis under BA flight codes.
Star Air (OY-reg) are operating daily B767 domestic cargo routes from EMA to EDI and BFS technically on an ACMI basis under Titan's AWC flight codes.
No reason by the SmartLynx aircraft ops for easyJet should be any different - if easyJet chooses to use them this way..

The six SmartLynx aircraft for easyJet will be in addition to the aircraft for TUI (I'm hearing four) and also now two allegedly for BA. Quite a presence.
