flyPOP have tweeted that this is still coming tomorrow (14/01) - do they have a UK AOC yet, can't see it on the CAA website?

Flypop’s second aircraft is scheduled in to Stansted at 1400 tomorrow as previously reported.
It is currently due to park on A15 Gate16. Flight numbers is 3L251P which is odd as 3L is the Air Arabia flight number and 3L251 is a scheduled flight from AUH-MCT ? But we will see what it comes in on tomorrow.

Googling doesn't reveal any evidence that I have seen that they are very far down the process of acquiring a UK AOC hence the foreign registered equipment.

Don't forget IATA codes aren't unique (there aren't enough of them to go round). So many codes are issued to more than one carrier, usually in different geographic areas with no likelihood of overlap

3L is also issued to Hi Fly Ltd (Malta), who are the operator of 9H-PTP

Would appear that the A330 is arriving as HFM251P according the Flightradar 24 arrivals for STN

Yes, that's the ICAO flight ID that would be expected if the IATA flight number is 3L251P.

Certainly as far back as the 80s, maybe earlier.

New route to Odesa in Ukraine with Ryanair, going up against Wizz's Luton-Odesa route.
Same days (Wed +Sun), but W6 fly mornings while FR fly evenings - so a day trip is possible from London. That said, it's a lovely place and I'd recommend staying a little longer

Sounds lovely. Of course, if there's a war, that's where Putin and Co. will be aiming for ...

FR at STN

One thing I've always wondered about FR at STN: Why is it that they've never used satellite 1? IIRC, FR weren't keen on having their passengers use the transit originally (hence their designated walk-to satellite, satellite 3). Yet, they do use satellite 2, with the international level requiring the transit to gates 20-39. MOL has made clear that he's keen on further expanding FR at STN post-Covid, especially now with the EZY base closure, so I'm wondering if they'd end up having to use satellite 1 (in addition to 2 and 3) further down the line, especially as satellite 3 gets very crowded?

I doubt they’d fit into Sat 1 with Jet2 around, along with Emirates, Pegasus and whoever else may or may not show up (Pop, Norse). If there was commitment to major expansion I’d imagine it would see the 4th sat built.

How busy was the Ryanair pier in 2019 relative to theoretical capacity ? I know it was pretty active, but wondering what the pier limits (as opposed to those in ACL's biannual reports) were. How much room was there for (non-domestic) more departures in the early morning and arrivals late evening ?

It would be based units that would be the issue with overnight stands. Plenty of bussing in from the remote stands over where Sat 4 would be used to go on over the summer season, less so in the winter.

I would think runway capacity is also likely to be tight during first wave not just stand availability

When Ryanair first arrived the 30-34 stands weren't built so they used the 20's.

After recent discussion, I arrived back into STN this evening to find a FR parked at Sat 1.
