I had to lookup that third destination, I see TUI Germany have a regular programme, perhaps jump in with Holidays division before TUI UK do?

It was a growing route for Thomas Cook before their demise. If TUI UK wanted to go, they would. If anything they'll buy up seats on this easyJet service to offer their packages here.

It was also very popular in the 1970s and 1980s with IT operators (Cosmos, Thomson etc).

LHR-Djerba was operated by British Eagle the summer season before they collapsed.

The resorts around there have long been popular with German and French tourists. One assumes Easyjet Holidays has bought in some hotel capacity and is giving it a try.

I must say it looks quite good as a package destination.

The co-ordination report shows a planned increase by Dan-Air from 2x weekly to almost daily, and a doubling of Fly One from daily to twice daily.
The rejected application from Ryanair implies that they were looking to base the equivalent of about 5-6 more aircraft (depending on sector times).

Only companies that begin with the letter R will be considered.

As per runway 07 the taxiway will not go to the end of the runway.

Incumbent Contractor - quite common in business. All sorts of hidden costs when you go for a strict cheapest quote.

Alpha Taxiway extension will greatly speed up 25 departures though to stop 6/7 aircraft along Alpha waiting their their turn.
Also 07 arrivals in challenging conditions will be able to exit without a backtrack.

Looking at the aircraft split mix for approved slots, few 738s and mostly Max.
Luton must be doing something right for RYR with fortress STN just up the road.

Mark Turner, Luton Rising’s service director, said: “Work on these fabulous new facilities marks the first step in honouring the promise we made to people living nearby to ensure that improvements to Wigmore Park are brought forward ahead of our proposed future developments in and around the airport.”
Plan to destroy most of a park and call it an improvement. All part of the corporate lie that fools no one. As for the promise, they had no choice as the “improvements” are part of a section 106 agreement.

.

LTNman you failed to mention that the park is a former landfill site and from 1978 converted to what it is today. I see no reason why they can not relocate it to the planned location which will be far bigger than the park today. Further more Wigmore was once fields but today turned into housing estates. Did you fight your cause back then?

Probably needs to turn attention to proposed housing development at Cockernhoe now.
I remember when I was looking at property in Luton in 86, I thought Wigmore was not a good spot, the whole Pavilion area was a no go area at night, totally run down. I settled for a property between Memorial & Stockwood Parks, both well looked after and the Airport never bothered me, in fact most neighbours were either directly or indirectly employed by Airport, as I was.
I left that property in 2014, still not bothered by Airport noise, in fact other neighbours were glad for it after Vauxhalls Car production had declined so much.

If you do a bit of research you'll find that Wigmore Park was created as a noise buffer for the residents of the then new Wigmore estate in the 1980's. The park is now a very valuable local asset but the Council of course choose to ignore this and offer a very poor replacement (which is basically famers fields some distance away!)

And you have fail to mention that the landfill site attained official status as a recognised County Wildlife Site many years ago and together with the rest of the park has two Asset of Community Value orders placed on it, as nature has been allowed to do its thing. Replacing a park that has been twice voted best park in Bedfordshire with a former turnip field in a different County is not exactly replacing like for like.

FR's LTN base

Hi all,

Some questions re. Ryanair's base at LTN. How many a/c are currently based at Luton, and how many of these are the new 737-MAX's? I wonder if they will want to increase the number of a/c at LTN going forward; are there any plans currently for them to do this?

Currently 7 based plus a fair amount of away-based ops. Ryanair requested slots equivalent to basing a further 5/6 aircraft for W24/5. At least 3 of the based aircraft are Maxs.

Looking at the W24 slot allocations, more Max8 than 738s so I suspect down to only 1 or 2 738s by then.

This caught my eye highlighting Signature & Luxaviation- just see the charging points and wires across the apron!

Am surprised they requested so many slots, they know LTN is full stand wise overnight .
If it was for away based Aircraft slots during the day that would blow the 18M cap currently.
Maybe they hoped 19M would have been approved by now.
