Do we know when Jet2 are retiring the 757? I had believed it to be 2026 with numbers gradually thinning over the next few years until only G-LSAK and AN are left for summer 2026 before retiring themselves. I am off to the Canaries next year and am trying to get booked on one, possibly for the last time, but can't find a single flight operated by one on the website (seat maps from MAN are all 321N, 738, A332). Do we know if the retirement is being brought forward, or if perhaps they are being cascaded from MAN to live out their final days at another base?

Three 737-800 at MME almost ready for service, they must be able to fill in a few gaps.

Given recent capacity increases, think at least one is going down to STN

Jet2 reportedly set to announce yet another new base soon.

Where will it be: ABZ, LPL, BOH, SEN, SOU, EXT, CWL & MME must all be crying out for them to come along with the Jet2Holidays product, or will the go big into LTN or LGW?..

Later two will have insufficient slots available.

MME would dilute traffic from NCL and LBA, so probably not a contender.

Would love it to be MME, but as above it just wouldn't make sense for Jet2.

I’m going with a new base in the south and lumping on SOU

Think it will be LPL or BOH, hoping for LPL!

Could CWL be a contender here? People will say “no” as it would dilute their large operation at BRS…..however previous operators served both CWL & BRS together…..Air 2000, JMC, XL Airways, My Travel and most recently TCX & long standing TUI.

Small summer base to test the water be good

I think it’s a bit early for a CWL base considering BRS only opened in S2021. But I think it’s likely a few years down the line

Jet2's spiritual home is BOH, but in IMO I cannot see them taking on an even bigger TUI and Ryanair presence there, who are both now basing 2 x 737's there for S24.

As for SOU - Not gonna happen with Jet2, as the 737-800 flying economically into or out of SOU is not possible with the runway there, and with the clearway/obstacle clearance issues which are a way different criteria to that of Southend SEN.
Hence as to why also no Ryanair at SOU.
The A320 is what is suitable for SOU but Jet2 do not take their new A320N deliveries until 2028.

LPL would be a great choice for the NW and break the FR/EZY Duopoly at LPL.

In recent years the Jet2 strategy appears to be more directed towards substantial bases that have the potential for taking all the support services such as check in and ramp handling in-house, rather than the 'scatter gun' approach of place one or two units at a myriad airports across the UK.

SOU would be a good choice, but for the a/c performance issues that #rog747 has clearly explained. LPL could just dilute their MAN market, but BHX and EMA both have substantial bases. The Teesside mayor may have made an offer thats 'too good to refuse' as could that arm of the Welsh government, CWL.

Clearly nobody know here, or if they do they're sworn to secrecy. My fiver might go on LPL.

Wouldn't any new base dilute another? Could it be that any further expansion at MAN now is difficult with the T2 development, so I think you are could be right and LPL is sensible. Other bases seem to still have room to expand.

I think that is exactly it and why I think it will be Liverpool.

Manchester

If they are finding it hard to expand do you not think they will operate the flights with larger aircraft rather than move some of the extra flights to Liverpool ?

surely they could find some more decent A330’s on the second hand market or purchase some new ones

If they bought A330s then they're left with them to also fill in winter when business naturally drops off. Much better I guess to lease them in for the busy summer periods as they have been.

I'm very intrigued to see where this new base is.
