It was always going to be Liverpool and not the best kept secret.

It adds needed capacity to the NW and avoids the need to put more units into Manchester.

Manchester will grow naturally as the A21N's continue to arrive as these add 20% more seats compared to the 738

Hopefully Liverpool will thrive and more units will be added to a point Jet 2 self handle there too.

Jet 2 are a very well run outfit and they know exactly what they are doing to serve their customers best.

Think this guy gets the credit!

I'm told Liverpool is initially 4x based 737-800s in Summer 2024. Expect more to come once Manchester starts moving towards an A321neo dominated hub.

We could add Birmingham and Newcastle to that mix as well.

I would not be surprised at all if an operation of two or three aircraft from Liverpool to popular Palma, Alicante, Malaga, Tenerife, a Greek isle ( or two), Paphos and Dalaman with attached packages were in their plans .

Such offerings would not cannibalise Manchester that much imho as they would be marketing at a more local ( City region) dynamic and with their family friendly marketing pitch to boot.

In winter a single part time aircraft might suffice for ski and sun holidays .

Example Chambéry, Tenerife , Lanzarote , Paphos .

Basically I am saying if Jet2 Holidays potential sales, (and analysis of prior trends surpass a threshold) then the vehicles (aircraft) will be delivered to support that demand.

This advocacy might surprise a few here and another place “tall towers”

The Jet2 offering differs in fundamental ways from Easy/Ryan and Wizz and even Tui at certain price points .

And the traditional package offering remains enticing to families that haven’t the time to build out there own deals ( in some cases the legal protections and ATOL bonds are also an added bonus when spending several thousands for that annual summer trip)
So as I previously suggested - Good for Jet2 Holidays the city region of Liverpool and indeed employment in the North West.

Credit TTG

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays will commit dedicated resource to launching flights and holidays from its new Liverpool base – its 11th – to agents in Liverpool, the North West and north Wales, chief executive Steve Heapy has told TTG.

The airline and operator on Tuesday (16 May) confirmed it would base four aircraft at Liverpool John Lennon airport next summer, with flights due to get under way on 28 March 2023 – just in time for the Easter getaway.

Jet2’s first flight out of Liverpool will be to Tenerife, with the company set to offer 20 destinations in total. These include mainland Spain, the Canaries and the Balearics, as well as Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, Portugal and Cyprus. Seven of the routes are brand new to Liverpool airport.

"Everyone is extremely excited about having our product come to the Greater Liverpool catchment area," said Heapy. "The reason we looked to Liverpool was because of the demand – demand from the airport, the customers who live in the catchment area, and the independent travel agents that serve this area.

"It’s a huge catchment area that goes from north Wales into Cheshire and extends right up to Cumbria. A lot of people want to travel from Liverpool airport, and currently do, but they don’t have a real package holiday product here. We’re able to supply that in addition to flight-only. We’re very happy to meet that demand."
Heapy said the Jet2holidays trade team, led by director of travel trade relationships Alan Cross, was already busy contacting agents in the area. "I think we’ll have dedicated resource for this catchment area," Heapy continued.

"It’s not a new catchment area really, we know a lot of the agents already, but I hope we will be getting much closer to them and doing a lot more business with them over the next few months and years so it follows that they will need support from us."

"One of the big reasons we decided to announce Liverpool was the incredible demand from travel agents over the months and years. The voices from Liverpool were very loud and we know we will have the support of our independent travel agents partners. We’re looking forward to working very closely with them."

Pausing to address the trade directly, Heapy said: "I’d like to thank them for their support, their resilience over the past three years and the fact they’ve responded by adapting their business models. That’s why we’re seeing a resurgence in high street travel agents, and that’s fantastic.

"Stay positive, keep talking to us, and between us, we will continue to grow and create sustainable, growing and profitable business for us all."

Here's an interesting development- Jet2 have bought ex Titan Airways 757 G-ZAPX and re-registered it as G-LSAO. Initially it was thought to be to be used for spares, however, it's a 2000 model with around 38000 hours on it. Most of the other 757s are late 80s to mid 90s build with 80-90000 hours on them.

​​​​​It will be interesting to see if it's added to the fleet or not, given that it's been re-registered. Given the delay in A321NEO deliveries, it could be a short term capacity boost!

I never thought I'd see a 757 being added to the fleet!

Would be great to see it become active!

You mention A321 delays; what is the delivery plan for this year? How does that compare to what was expected?

Originally, they were planning on having 7 A321 NEOs in service for the summer. One has been delivered so far with the second due in the coming weeks. They are delayed due to issues obtaining raw materials for the engines I'm told.

If it's short term cover for late 321's, would they need to buy it?

On the travel weekly interview last week Steve said 119 aircraft this year. Nothing else is showing as a planned delivery so wouldn't be surprised if LSAO enters service as the 119th frame. It's showing as reconfigured back to Y202....why would that happen if it was for parts?

Why send ZAPX/LSAO to Kemble if it wasn't for spares recovery? Well unless other MROs are maxed out and cannot reconfigure from TCX interior? CofA expires in 12 months, but no Idea when the next major check is due? Last at 2Excel Engineering Nov/Dec 2021.

G-LSAO is 23 years old, whilst G-LSAE is 35! Plenty of mileage in her yet?

Just to throw a spanner in the works! How about (G-JZBY) ex C-GTOH currently at Hamilton

That would indeed make 119. G-LSAO makes 120

Could it be that 1 of the older 757s will leave the fleet or maybe a 733, lots of questions which I am sure will come out in the wash.

I’m led to believe the slow exit of the 752 will start by Summer 2024.

Funny how I raise a topic of conversation on this thread, get bashed for it and then a week or so later you’re all talking about my topic. Must be ahead of the curve. 300s being replaced by 800s and the 757 being too young for parts by the way.

LSAH has been parked at Kemble with its engines removed since withdrawal but not broken up unlike others that have ended up there,maybe interior doner?
