G-JZHT, HU, BC, BE, BF, BG, BH and BH now all have the scimitar winglets installed.

Surprised to see the ex Pegasus frames have not had them fitted during entry into service. These are quite young in age so will be in the fleet for a good while, would have thought they’d have preferred to kill 2 birds with one stone so to speak.

HP...

BP is currently stuck in ACE due FNC weather shenanigans.

Does the ownership status - owned Vs leased have an impact on SSW installation?

Unusual seeing Jet2 starting with a 2 aircraft base. They like to start with a bigger presence usually to state their dominance and allow them to do everything (handling etc) in house and be cost effective.

Selfishly though, this does give a little bit of hope that Doncaster may get a look in with Jet2 when it reopens. It would have been difficult to justify opening a large base there with the size of the operations at MAN, EMA, and, to a lesser extent, LBA taking out of the area customer pool. But with Jet2 seemingly happy to start a bit smaller and grow organically that now makes DSA a possibility.

I’m wondering if before DSA we may see

Southend
Norwich

can’t see them getting enough slots at Gatwick/LTN so maybe Southend to take some of the south east away from Gatwick?

Maybe CWL too when they’re established at BRS

They have said if Bournemouth is successful they would look to smaller airports. Southend possibly a bit to close to Stansted but still you never know.

Norwich is an interesting shout with their new relationship with RCA/Rigby group (who have managed to get Ryanair into Exeter and Norwich following Bournemouth). TUI have had a summer base for over 10 years now at NWI so clearly enough demand, however realistically a 1 aircraft base is the maximum NWI could support. Probably too small for Jet2 and may feel it could dilute the Stansted base, however doesn't seem to bother TUI, or Ryanair, so stranger things could happen, I mean I said Ryanair would never set foot in Norwich yet here we are.

Now for me I wonder a more realistic option could be Exeter? certainly seems plausible to me.

Surely now with the fleet size small one a/c ‘bases’ if you wanted to call them that could be done on W patterns to avoid the self handling and maintenance problem. Norwich, Exeter/Newquay, Cardiff, Southend amongst others could all have a daily or couple of daily flights done on W patterns from the likes of MAN, LBA, BHX or STN. They always have a couple of spare aircraft across the fleet so couldn’t that be feasible for the smaller airports?

That certainly could be a good option yes. If they are willing to do W patterns, then they will have a lot of success. Something quite telling is Norwich airport advertisement posts on Facebook for TUI with so many comments below asking for Jet2

Sorry to be a party pooper, but they haven’t said that at all.

https://www.ttgmedia.com/news/jet2-b...rnemouth-45518

Would suggest that they have the U.K covered now, and growth will be focussed on the incumbents.

Well I stand corrected. I must have got rather wrong from the article I read, my apologies. Thank you for posting that. Well there we have it from the horses mouth so too speak. Bournemouth to be the last base, a shame but from a business stand point very sensible.

Still hoping Humberside may feature at some point with Jet2.

We can dream!

Kind regards

If that ship ever existed it sailed many many years ago. I think with today’s news, more than 90% of the U.K. population will be within 90 minutes of a jet2 airport now. Any more than that would be overkill and risks huge overheads with little reward.

It could provide TUI with a niche though, serving local.
