The flight number implied a charter, return had a Ferry flight number.

Couldn't divert to Luton due lack of slots? https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-new...s-200-26735289

Possibly night quota slots as being so early in the summer season maybe Gatwick and Luton are being very strict over which flights use them.so they don't run out at the end of season.

Take your pick.

Total of 4 arrival slots per hour available overnight.
Total limit of 12,880,000 seats will apply across all Passenger Air Transport Movements between April and September.
No stands available since taxiway Foxtrot reopened.
Another reason?

I think LTN had already taken an EZY A321N from TFS to LGW on diversion in similar circumstances so probably lack of stands.
lt is strange the WUK didn't go to BHX where they are used to handling them.

BHX was closed 01:15-03:30 that night. 5 arrivals re-timed to land between 03:30 - 03:45.

Not too sure how often this happens at BHX but a US registered bizjet landed 01:41 last night which was in between one at 00:16 and another at 05:18 which gives the impression the BHX closure was not planned well in advance and could have been last minute staffing issues as well, as they would have chosen last night rather than the one with 7 or 8 arrivals

OltonPete Thanks for your input.
STN has few or any nighttime slots, SEN is effectively closed.
Once June 1st comes BHX can expect more nighttime BizJets for the summer, due to LTN Adhoc night slot ban.

Dubrovnik is back for the Summer season!

This route has come and gone numerous times over the last 5-10 years, and has previously been operated by easyJet, Monarch, Thomson and Wizz.
(Even further back in 1989, I flew it from LTN with Adria Airways and JAT on a Yugotours charter package holiday.)

This time Wizz are giving it another go, and will be operating it four times a week from the 4th July through to the 28th October.

Beautiful destination along with the surrounding islands and easy to nip over the border into Montenegro, which is stunning.

I'm surprised Wizz didn't announce any other new routes, with the suspension of all Moldovan, Russian and Ukrainian flights by the airline from the airport.

Wizz made a formal statement to investors shortly after the war started that flights to Kyiv would be suspended... so had to honour this for a while. That "while" has presumably now expired so can get away with flogging seats. In the last two months they have been gradually reducing the number of routes to/from Ukraine listed on their website - see wikipedia airport pages for details of what's been dropped

My point was I could see Lviv but not Kyiv. Prices on that Outbound show quite strong booking but very cheap coming to LTN.

What do you think they know if they didn't even notice that a war broke out? They want to collect some money.

More importantly, is the airport operator paying the owners again?

The council and its company LRT has agreed that LLAOL can keep an additional £45m over the next three years that could have paid for council services plus get an extra free year on the concession, as reported a few months back. The council has been rolled over by the owners of LLAOL who have a net worth of over a £1bn. Yes that is billion.

LRT accounts will be published this month. Now that will make for an interesting read as it covers a full year of covid. The 2019-20 accounts covered one month of covid where they made massive loses due to out of control borrowings and spending. To date that spending hasn’t added a single passenger.

Extra, extra "Airport in not making money during Covid pandemic shocker". Overly simplistic everywhere else.

Little birdie tells me that NetJets are paying out for the minor refurbishment of Monarch’s old hangars 7 and
8. I wonder if NetJets knows their aircraft will get trapped?
