Thought Titan were getting a A330? Just because no obvious A330 operators at STN does not mean there is no expertise present.

The fare structure is mentioned here - https://simpleflying.com/flypop-airb...ircraft-lease/

The airline will offer flights on a fixed fare scale. The cheapest tickets will start at 350, and never exceed 750. The lowest fares will only include a seat on the aircraft. However, there will be no nasty surprises as the default fare will include a checked bag and a meal.

I'll believe that when I see it. High density A333, no premium/business cabin, presumably once daily at most. For India/Pakistan maybe, but doesn't sound like a recipe for success on London-New York if you ask me.

I think they will be marketed as through flights from the US to India/Pakistan.

Small start-up airline that wants to fly from London to multiple long-haul routes as a pseudo-hub and not bother with short haul, while a pandemic has yet to end. It's certainly ambitious...

The market they're aiming at is on the website - the aim is clearly to link up large local populations:
Our Vision We are our customer. flypop is an airline for the South Asian diaspora run by the members of the asian diaspora.

We want to make travelling ‘home’ an affordable proposition for everyone.

Does Stansted currently have airside flight connections facilities without passengers entering the UK? Last time I was through you could just walk out of the departure lounge and leave for landside.
You can't have that if you are allowing India-STN-US connecting traffic access? And anyone flying from India onto the US needs to reclear security to UK DfT guidines before departing again. Maybe a secure gate set up on Sat 1?

Stansted no longer has a connection area. If I remember correctly in the BAA days there was this facility.
Can you be more clear? You can’t just leave the departure lounge straight for airside.

Sat1 does have the ability to be able to used as a transit/connection area but is only possible for how it seems FlyPop want to operate US. Land from India and offload. Passengers split from up, arrival to the UK goes to immigration and connection to US can be check in one of the gate areas which can be converted to a small security area and then allowed to go to the new departure gate in SAT1.

There is/was a one way departure door out of the departure lounge for landside with no return possible, saw it last time I was through although that's 2 years ago now. Maybe it's gone. It was well signposted, caught my eye, for people who miss flights I guess.

Don’t all airports offer this? People miss flights at every airport and need an exit route other than the apron.

Transfer facilities have existed before. The reason they’re not there now is that currently they are not required. They can easily be put in when/if the need arises.

Only ways of exiting the departures lounge is by getting on your flight and exiting via a staff security area and then customs (Signposted as Returning Passengers)
There is an exit for domestic arrivals via the link bridge to SAT2 but this is manned by security so you can’t freely exit from here.

This is to stop people buying Duty Free goods and not travelling? So how do you get out if you miss your flight? There was an exit last time I was through, 100%, it must have been removed as I remember filing it for future reference as a handy to know. There are always people who miss their flights every day, there must be an offical way to exit airside if you're not travelling. I mean they don't actually check the domestic arrivals, you could head to Sat 2 lower level then put a jacket and hat on and just exit with the hordes of arriving easyJet passengers (!) but I'm sure there's an official way.

No I have worked at Stansted for many years and we don’t have or have ever had what you are describing. The only ways of exiting are the ones that I have previously stated.

So what happens when a whole flight of say 300 passengers gets cancelled at the gate?

There has to be a way out of the departure lounge. Every airport has to have this facility somewhere. There definitely has to be one at Stansted. Maybe a question for a handling agent?

Don’t try and be condescending by saying it’s a question for a handling agent.
As previously mentioned it’s would be exiting via a staff security area and then customs (Signposted as Returning Passengers) This is the exit for of one individual has missed his flight or a Ryanair flight is cancelled.

Not trying to be condescending at all. I have no knowledge of your role at the airport, if indeed you work there? Just suggesting that perhaps one of the airport handling agents might have an answer.

No need to get all defensive over a simple suggestion.

I have given you the answer. It is the correct answer.
If you don’t have the knowledge, and ask a question, be grateful for the answer and response.
