I quote from the article "independent body called "Green Controlled Growth".
I'm all for that! But those who just say No should join the real world where UK is not a significant player and real efforts should be brought to bare on World players.

“Green Controlled Growth” that just happens to allow 32m passengers. Now if Green Controlled Growth meant not exceeding todays pollution levels then it would have some credibility except we are meant to be reducing pollution. In Luton’s case the plan is to substantially increase it by excluding aircraft from Green Controlled Growth targets.

Green Controlled Growth is actually a smoke screen to influence the gullible.

Obviously similar as OCED and ITF then.

That means Easyjet will pull the route and then Ryanair will retreat to Stansted.

MNG has been acquired by DHL. Does that mean another airline leaves LTN?

I know this is designed to kick the opposition out, but surely this route can barely handle 2 weekly flights let alone 5?

Spend money and endure loses to protect the back yard at Stansted. Watch Easyjet drop the route and then see how Ryanair reacts. Copenhagen is the classic example from around 8 returns a day by both airlines to nothing. Easyjet pulled the route after a short fight and then so did Ryanair when they won. It was once Luton’s busiest route.

Looks like fake news as FR is from STN, not LTN, and it isn’t a new route. I think it operated 4 weekly last year, certainly at least 3. It’s EZY which is the new entrant.

Not sure that is correct, think they have bought the local service within Turkey. Airline looks untouched and is aiming to list on the New York stock exchange.

The information came from the trade paper Travel Weekly. If you think it is fake news may I suggest you get in touch with their editorial team. Ryanair are also two operate twice weekly from Liverpool to Rovaniemi.

Ryanair website is selling flights 5x weekly between STN and Rovaniemi during winter, but not selling anything at all between LTN and Rovaniemi

The Rovaniemi flights are predominantly full of families going to visit Father Christmas and Lapland, booked through the companies you see advertised in the press, so basically a charter but l think they are open for flight only bookings too. They have been running for years.

It is fake news as it is not correct. The lesson is don’t believe everything you read in the papers.

Ryanair doing charters, I think not unless you are directed to an affiliate booking engine which generates cash for RYR!
Try booking it then changing your booking through the RYR app to reduce costs. This is a A to B flight only.

As my user name suggess l do not work for RYR. The EZY flights are sold as l mentioned, these companies you see advertised in the press block book seats on the EZY flights. Perhaps l should have said 'the EZY flights ....'

Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted and City are all fairly quiet airports with boarding announcements typically limited just to the immediate vicinity of a gate. Luton seems to have several automated broadcasts for each flight covering areas well away from a gate... meaning passengers hear a LOT of announcements. Is there a reason why LTN feels the need to broadcast so many announcements ? Is there anywhere in the departures area which is a quiet zone - ie "no announcements" ?

Luton seemed to be one of the first airports to implement the “silent terminal” ethos back in the early 2000s. Not sure why it had to change? I remember getting on a flight a couple of months ago and the system was clearly on the blink, as the same boarding call was going every 3 seconds after the last for about 20 minutes in several languages.

I remember the old days in Spanish airports with the iconic voices! Not been there for a while to know if it still exists there?

US airports are the worst for this sort of thing.
