I still think you will be seeing the two JOTA passenger aircraft when they position in the early hours after a late night premier league football team charter.

Unsure of the logic there...that would entail two positioners...Major airport to SEN then to BQH...

The Enzo that positioned STN-BQH yesterday had arrived at STN the evening before & night stopped...

what's happened to the Milan & Madrid Amazon flights? My aged mother lives just off the the Rochford end of the runway and likes following 'her' aircraft. With Amazon being so busy it's strange the flights have stopped.

A lot of the UK network hasn’t restarted after Christmas, unsure why. Just the Leipzig flight from Southend still running, no BCN, FCO, MAD or MXP. Only 4 from EMA instead of the more usual 10 or 11?

Seems like a number of Ryanair routes are cut this year. None of the following are currently on sale:
  • Bilbao
  • Bergerac
  • Girona
  • Marseille
  • Vilnius

I believe its BREXIT related; Amazon are not moving as much into and out of the UK as they were when the paperwork was easier

Wideroe - 2 routes - Bergen, Kristiansand

Thanks, as I lost touch. Would this now be a two aircraft operation for Ryanair?

It would take a genius to make Swissport worse, and lo and behold here comes Warwick Brady...

I won't jump on the bandwagon here. Warwick Brady was asked to head up an airport project that required a belief in restrained airport capacity, especially in the London market. To support the airport the company was willing to sell multiple assets to fund airport losses purely to bring the airport to the attention of the leisure market.

Most people believe that the London Market was (pre-covid) capacity constrained. With asset sales income Warwick Brady had time and space to put the airport on the map and he did. The handling side of the business was also showing promising signs of growth. So he did deliver what was expected of him.

Collectively the Board made errors that Brady cannot be held responsible for. The inducements to EZY (and latterly FR) were over generous.

Could Brady have produced a business plan that was more inclusive to the aviation industry outside of LCCs? Yes, and I say he should have done. Where was the MRO business, the GA and the cargo? But he was brought in to prosecute a plan that wasn't his.

If the plan proposed by the board had worked well, would the CEO have declined all credit (including bonuses or other financial rewards) and told everyone he hadn't agreed with it in the first place but had just been doing as he was told ?
All seems a bit "privatise profits, socialise losses" to me....

I think that's a good summary although I would perhaps query the last sentence.

Brady always sounded convincingly enthusiastic about 'the plan' over the years so maybe it's just that the landscape has changed so much now. I always believed the Stobart stance was too one-eyed in chasing LoCo operators at the expense of everything else and that a more balanced portfolio of operations would have proven more shock resistant. Quite where they go from here is, of course, the conundrum.

The business jet market has had huge growth within the UK, I'm surprised the Stobart Jet Centre has done so poorly. The lack of MRO business, it would seem the airport were very focussed on certain airlines, not looking at the bigger picture.
