Given the situation in Russia-Ukraine, I wouldn't imagine Bulgaria is particularly high on many people's wish-list of countries to visit at the moment.

Jet2 Expansion

Jet2 have announced further expansion to Stansted for next summer. A base of 15 aircraft raising to 16 in peak summer. No new routes apart from what has been previously announced.
No mention on of these will be all Jet2 aircraft or some to be leased in again from the likes of Titan and HiFly.
In sure that Titan will be used as I doubt Jet2 will have enough of there own A321ís in to cover Stansted.

Link to this news release about expansion below.

Interesting news from Jet2. Maybe it only me that is planning to cut back on foreign escapes next year due to rising bills and dwindling end of the month spare cash. I plan to cut back two trips abroad next year from Stansted that will cover the increases to my cost of living including a new mortgage rate yet I consider myself to be a middle income family.

Is it all about market share or does Jet2 really think they can grow the market out of Stansted, as they believe everyone actually has more disposable income on not less?

Perhaps the type of travel? Banking on people keeping the week on the sunbed but losing the weekend in Lisbon. Iíd be the opposite but if what I liked was popular it would be Iím a Celebrity on at BBC4 at 11pm on a Tuesday and a Scandi political drama every night at 9 on ITV and across all the tabloids

Many people cutting back during hard times will always find money for a week in the sun and especially the smokers who can get a free holiday by buying all their cigarettes abroad.

Nothing to do with an existing Boeing customer who is STN biggest customer and will need to start looking at replacements soon!

Canít see much going on tonight as itís still bucketing it down, and likely itíll also be misery tomorrow morning because most of the FR based fleet appears to be down route or in the Midlands.

Stansted-Oradea will cease at the end of March as Ryanair is going to abandon four Romanian airports (Timisoara, Oradea, Sibiu and Suceava). Apparently these airports refused to pay more money to FR.
