Wideroe

New service to Bergen 2x weekly starting 26th March 2023. Will operate in addition to their BGO-LHR route.

Not a big addition but nice to have nonetheless.

This would be a very interesting move by Vietnam Airlines if they did decide to enter STN, especially given that they already operate at LHR, and had previously tried LGW before consolidating at Heathrow - how likely would a dual STN/LHR operation be? Either way, it would be great to see long haul expand from STN alongside Emirates.

Also, does anyone have any further information or updates regarding the STN transformation programme? IIRC, something was mentioned about MAG supposedly scrapping the arrivals terminal in favour of a new terminal 2?

They have seven daily slots at LHR but they're in financial trouble. It may well be a fire sale of the slots? Unless they're not even their own slots in which case I am talking nonsense again.....

Certainly would be a great catch for STN and MAG if that were to happen - although I would have thought they'd be taking a look at reinstating LGW first before STN? (No doubt GIP would be willing to offer them a good deal).

In terms of the Stansted Transformation Project. A lot has been discussed. The most recent has been a new terminal towards the blue car park with a direct connection to a new SAT4 and link to SAT3. SAT1&2 would then be the current terminals satellites.
No plans or anything official has been announced. But a lot of movement in upper MAG management into new projects and transformation roles.

It would at least be nice to see them progress with the shoreline check in theme as originally planned.

Yes, except most of the desks they've built so far look s***!

Air Corsica have removed STN from their website for ticket sales. No idea if this is a temporary blip or permanent

As far as Iím aware they are charter flights for one of the Corsican tour operators. They havenít been scheduled flights since pre-Covid.

Stores and ancillary Offices, crew and maintenance Inspection post
Van storage.

Where is the new BIP going to be relocated.

Most impacted is Titan Airways, where will they end up going, There are no plans for a new hangar anywhere, surely they will need to relocate away from STN?

Where indeed for Titan. I can also see objections from Fayair & Universal with the loss of aircraft parking. We may never see such a gathering of Heads of State aircraft in UK as we did last year in one place - which will be a headache for security in the future.
As with Luton, Bizjets will eventually get squeezed out.
Who is going to be the next Farnborough........
Cranfield, Oxford......?

The loss of stands is puzzling as I agree these are vital for when large events occur but also utilised a lot during the spring/summer as the large private operators park up. Space for aircraft parking will be at a premium and there are not a lot of alternative airports to accommodate these.
Interestingly the areas in red on the map that Columbia Threadneedle owns cover a lot of Inflite Hangar 1 area so this too is at risk of change.

Itís all because MAG only see the money theyíll make from selling it. But thatís not surprising MAG have always used Stansted as a cash cow really to support the growth and development of Manchester and their back pockets.
This move to sell all this land hasnít gone down well with a lot of people.

I know for all the airport departments northside they are being moved to an area near the catering facilities along long border road. I know the motor transport team will be moving to their new facility very soon.

I did hear some time ago Titan where looking at acquiring hangar space in Malta to go with their Maltese registered division. Not sure what happened to this idea?

Not exactly a compelling business case when there's jobs on offer.

Looking at the north of stansted website, it was sold back in August 2020. Maybe to bring in revenue during the pandemic.
From what I hear, Fayair won't be objecting. I would imagine that passenger & freight is where the money is so the loss of some north side GA parking is probably not seen as a huge loss.

I hear, maybe just a rumour, that Amazon would be a major user of the warehouse space. Would it be logical that they would want parking for ASL & Primeair aircraft close to that? If so even less space for FBOs outside their own dedicated aprons. Bye bye A7- & A6- big biz.....

Fayair is no more and there is no objections from Harrods even though they have just purchased the FBO and soon to have a fence line across the east side of their apron so will affect what they can park in the future.

The HAP will have to go aswell so will MAG want to relocate or will we need slots for helicopters
