LGW and LTN show reductions during that period but from a Max x8 to x6 daily on each weekdays.

The AMS slots are now under EJU, hence why they're showing as cancelled by EZY.

I believe there has been a gap in service before, sometime around Buzz being absorbed into FR. I think Transavia picked it up but were pushed off by EZY.

Transavia operated to Rotterdam-Stansted for a brief period not Amsterdam IIRC.

I believe they switched AMS to RTM when EZY turned up. I’m willing to be proved wrong though.

Also pretty sure it was more than brief. They were part of the exodus to LGW, think they tried LTN as well.

Hard to find any info but looks like I was right - although the break in service was brief (and Transavia are Dutch not Danish, but this was amateur local news in Essex):

A DANISH budget airline will begin to fly twice-daily from Essex to Amsterdam later this month. Basiz Air is to operate out of Stansted - the only airport in the UK from where the company will fly - with an introductory one-way fare of nine euros - about 3.60 - which is less than a packet of cigarettes. The airline is part of Transavia Airlines, which is 80 percent owned by Dutch national carrier KLM. Basiq stepped in after budget airline Buzz, now owned by Ryanair, pulled off the route earlier this year

I stand corrected. Id forgotten about their Basiq Air venture.

Ive wondered for years now why KLM have never given STN a go. Especially given the amount of connections they offer. Connections via Amsterdam were always very popular back in the Air UK days.

In the Air UK days of the 1990s, there weren't multiple large LCCs flying nonstop from Stansted to every village in Europe. Does rather kill the potential for a network airline charging high-ish fares on a 1-stop strategy.

I was thinking more specifically longhaul where there still exists a market for one stop connections.

EZY STN ops

Since their STN base closure, are EZY still using satellite 1 or have they consolidated entirely in satellite 2? Historically I remember their international services using satellite 1 while domestics used sat 2, although I'm guessing this has probably changed given AMS is the sole remaining international destination?

It would appear that both of today’s Amsterdam flights used gate 88 at sat 2.
