FYI A Jet2 flight from STN to DLM was forced to divert back to STN in 2019 due to a disruptive PAX. Happens everywhere nowadays Iím afraid, including in Essex. 😘

And if Jet2 were operating from Liverpool similar, but also quick security and passports on the way back.

Unless Jet2 open with *8 aircraft or more it won`t be self handling and of course MAN is quick on return

I think this continual exchange of views as to whether Jet 2 should open a LPL base or focus on further expansion at MAN to serve the region is no longer productive.frankly. The debate is in danger of just going round in circles. Jet 2 will decide how they can best expand the market and gain market share, and I doubt any arguments on here will persuade them one way or another. We don't even know for sure whether they plan to open a new base let alone where that would be if they do. Obviously capacity and slot constraints at airports will be one factor.

There is probably more airline management expertise in the heads of some people (no, that definitely does NOT include me) on this website than in the heads of the fund managers employed by many of the pension funds / insurers which are major shareholders (and get to vote on the major decisions) of many airlines. I don't know much about Jet2 as a business... but some of those who post here really do know their stuff

Have to say that was a curve ball, and having checked the booking engine it is in there. Great news for LPL and for Jet2.

So what happens now to Jet2's network at Manchester for S24 ? Would one expect a slight cut / zero increase in frequency on core routes like Alicante / Mallorca / Tenerife, and increases in capacity on the routes not served from LPL or even the opening of a modest number of additional routes ?

This is about expansion and market share, not about cuts or transfers from MAN

No not necessarily, however it does suggest that there are some people on here that understand business strategy and building market share.

LPL was, for many of the reasons espoused upthread one of only a few airports remaining in UK where parachuting 3 or 4 aircraft in makes economic sense.

Eventually, but not in the short term, SEN and CWL could be other potentials, all depending of course on the state of the economy/market.

LBA-CPH coming back. I was sure they were drifting away from city routes. Youíd think a good route from other bases.

Nice short route that can be slotted in to keep utilisation up.

I can assure you that this has come as a complete, yet welcome shock to many of those at the coal face. Particularly when that very question was rebuffed a mere couple of months ago at an internal conference.

Itís no secret that they have been in talks for many years, as they will be with a number of other airports. On balance it does make complete sense, the largest city until now not served by the UKís largest tour operator. Obviously a strategic benefit to strike now. Also a lot of space in the terminal that can be turned red.

Happy to have been proven wrong.

MAN-CPH has about 3 or 4 carriers on it, with Norwegian starting it soon.. donít think itís worth the risk

Credit TTG - So actually 4 aircraft not 3 and 565,000 seats nice boost for Liverpool

The airline and operator has put 565,000 summer 2024 seats on sale across 20 destinations from LJLA, with flights taking off on 28 March ahead of the Easter getaway. Jet2 will base four aircraft at LJLA, flying to mainland Spain, the Canaries and Balearics, as well as Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, Portugal and Cyprus.


It will operate up to 54 weekly flights from Liverpool during peak summer, including 12 a week each to the Canaries and the Balearics. LJLA will gain seven brand-new routes in total – Bourgas (Bulgaria), Gran Canaria, Madeira, Menorca, Paphos, Rhodes and Zante.

Jet2 said its decision to set up at Liverpool came in response to "enormous demand" from customers and agents in the North West, and would create more than 200 jobs locally spanning flight deck and cabin crew roles, as well as opportunities in engineering and ground handling.

Jet2.com is this year celebrating the 20th anniversary of its UK flight operations; it will operate a fleet of 119 aircraft this summer, flying to around 70 destinations. Jet2holidays, meanwhile, is now the UK’s largest operator by Atol authorisations, licensed to carry 5.86 million passengers this year.

Steve Heapy, Jet2.com and Jet2holidays chief executive, said: "This announcement further expands our footprint and comes on the back of the enormous demand we know is out there from customers and independent travel agents across Liverpool, Merseyside and the wider region. We have seen that demand really ramp up over the past couple of years, so we know there will be a fantastic response to this launch.

"The announcement of our 11th UK airport reflects our long-term strategy to continue growing responsibly to become the UK’s leading and best leisure travel business. It also means significant investment in the region, with four based aircraft coming into operation and the creation of over 200 new jobs."

John Irving, Liverpool John Lennon airport chief executive, added: “This is a great day for the airport and for the region’s holidaymakers. For the first time, travellers from across the Liverpool City Region and beyond will have the opportunity to book package holidays with the UK’s leading package holiday provider, direct from Liverpool John Lennon airport.

"It’s also great to have seven new routes available that we know will be popular with holidaymakers and for our local independent travel agents to be able to sell."
