Yes the "gamechanger" has just slipped quietly into STN on the last DUB service of the day.

Introducing the HERT...

Revealed plans for a mass rapid transit (MRT) system dubbed the HERT (Hertfordshire-Essex Rapid Transit) to run from Hemel & Watford joining up south of St Albans to Harlow & onward to Stansted Airport.

What I think is more interesting is "With the county's population expected to rise by up to 175,000 by 2031, and plans for more than 100,000 new jobs and more than 100,000 new homes", more punters for airports and more income for councils!

Interesting too is the direction of travel literally within two county councils planning & thinking.

Previously Watford/Hemel/StAlbans could be safely placed within the LTN catchment...Centre of gravity within planning is certainly changing.

More likely that Herts CC - always vehemently anti-Luton - want a share of the action in the form of fare income, and joining with Essex as they both gain revenue from more houses/buildings in their patch. Never underestimate the cynicism of politicians....

Under the impression that HCC has always been anti-STN too of course.

Since MAG ownership Stansted has worked very hard with all the local communities to mitigate any/all impacts of growth which will & is producing dividends.

LTN has chosen the opposite path being a dictatorial neighbour to communities & which is now becoming/proving a serious obstacle to further growth.

For anyone thinking about Play, maybe just have a look here, I wouldn't comment on the thread but it gives an indication of their thinking.

flypop is pleased to confirm that London Stansted Airport will be its first UK airport base.

The flypop team see strong long-term demand for direct #flights between the UK (STN) and key ‘secondary cities’ of #India. London Stansted offers excellent connectivity, especially with its rail links into both #London and the #Midlands.

Nino (Navdip) Singh Judge, CEO & Principal of flypop , commented:
“During the pandemic we have been in talks with a number of UK airports and we can now confirm London Stansted as our first UK base. London Stansted Airport has a history of being the base for low-cost carriers and we feel it is the perfect fit for our passengers. flypop is focused on serving the Indian and South Asian diaspora communities living in the UK and their visiting friends and relatives, for whom London Stansted is the most convenient airport location.”

London Stansted Airport’s Managing Director, Steve Griffiths, added:
“We welcome the decision by flypop to select London Stansted as its first UK base and we look forward to working with the airline as it develops its route network plans in advance of the safe return of travel between the UK and India at the appropriate moment.”

flypop is currently in negotiations with a number of second city airports across #India and will shortly be confirming its first Indian #airport hubs.

Been a long time in the making. They certainly seem to be the most professional out of all the start ups, or at least project themselves to be. Time will tell.
Good luck to them. Hopefully they’ll create some much needed aviation employment opportunities.

Can anyone advise why the FedEx B757 always seems to park on the main cargo area rather than the FedEx ramp? I have never seen that full so wonder why it's not parked alongside company aircraft?

It has done for a few years now since the Fedex/TNT merger. It's the former TNT Liege flight that now operates for the ASL hub, so guess it's not strictly a Fedex freighter.

It is a FedEx freighter. Operates on a FedEx flight number into the LGG Air Hub (it's not an ASL hub).

Does anyone know what all the VG flights are on the STN arrivals screen, on Flightradar24 all from UK Airports ?

Same problem at nearly all UK airports on FR24. I understand that VG now relates to a trucking company and is being erroneously picked up from a 3rd part app.
Hopefully they will get it sorted soon.

Great news for STN! Is Satellite 1 now open? I've noticed Jet2, Turkish and Play still operating from gates 81-88 and 20-39 alongside FR, so I'm assuming reopening has been delayed slightly?
