Unless easyJet has done a deal with another airline yet to be announced, they do not have slots at LHR. They are certainly holding none right now.

And with bases in Palma, Faro, Malaga and Alicante, they could serve Southampton if they wanted to. No W patterns would be needed. It’s exactly the same as the new services at Birmingham where the only remotely complicated routing is that to Corfu.

It would appear that we are now down to the final two hurdles, firstly waiting for the S of S to determine if the application is to be called in and secondly EBC to complete a new Section 106 Agreement to lock in the environmental mitigations that the airport offered/council requires..

Confident that if the Section 106 is robust and mitigates many of the environmental concerns, it will be passed back to EBC to rubber stamp!

In recent history have any 20 departures taken advantage of the 15 degree starboard slew which was implemented many years ago to mitigate the tree problem?

"In recent history have any 20 departures taken advantage of the 15 degree starboard slew which was implemented many years ago to mitigate the tree problem?"

Just about every departure. The runway 20 Noise Preferential Route (NPR) provides for it.

The NPR must be flown by all turbo-jet aircraft and those with a MTOW 5700 KG or greater.

The problem was, and may still be, that for some aircraft when calculating take-off weight the height of one or more trees in/adjacent to Marhill Copse was too high/close to the end of the runway to allow for a 15 degree turn to be taken in to account. in order to afford the much better obstacle environment.

Once the runway extension is complete (all doubters on this thread please note my positivity) as the start of take-off run will be farther away from the trees it may be sufficient to take full advantage of the 15 degree turn option.

I would personally bet on Alicante or Malaga - can't see them trying Geneva against easyJet. Maybe a small chance of something like Innsbruck/Grenoble/Salzburg/Turin if there is demand for it and a tour operator interested?

Also, I thought the airport was open from 7:30am on Sunday's? They might struggle to make that 7:15am departure...

If its only one flight per week should be possible if the 10 out of hours provision per month is still in place within the current Section 106 agreement.
