How have they managed that one, as a third country operator?

Aren't Iceland part of the European "Open Skies"? Either that or no British operator capable/willing to do it?

I thought one-off charters have a more liberal regime ? I can't see London-Svalbard in March being a regular route... I'm wondering who on earth needed to charter an aircraft for the flight - army for winter training is the only thing I can think of; it's too far north to see the northern lights, and tourists typically go around July

mmm ok fair enough, it’s a weird flight as not even viewable or bookable on their website , when you look in a GDS both Heathrow and Stansted are loaded to view but classes all blocked out and when you look at ACL summer report they have LHR and STN slots allocated so , yea def a weird one

Jet2 ATH and FCO

A great start for Jet2 this morning on the new routes to ATH and FCO. 186 passengers on the ATH and 187 on the FCO.
good to see these routes starting so well for Jet2. Hopefully they continue for them and for Stansted.

Additional Stansted will have 40,431 departing passengers today and 37,333 arriving.

Why is that news for Stansted, is it due to be based?
EZY are just about to get 2 new build 320NEOs originally for Viva Air Columbia and should arrive at LGW soon, should we post on Luton thread as EZY are a Luton based airline?

It seems there is a rational for Turkmenistan Airlines flying to the UK...

If part of their plan to boost load factor on their London flight is based on taking london - Delhi traffic via Turkmenistan then would help if their Delhi flights connected, from what I see the Ashgabat - Delhi flight is on a Sunday, with their London Stansted - Ashgabat flight being on a Wednesday.

An increasing number of our seasonal agricultural workers are coming from that direction. Tajikistan was mentioned on TV last night. (Simon Reeve return to Cornwall ) Maybe that's the market?

I watched that. Don’t recall that one being written on the side of a bus.

Great news! I would not be surprised to see a 20 a/c base at STN at some point given their expansion at STN in recent years. How does this compare to EasyJet's peak capacity at STN when they had a base here?

I'm also wondering whether we may eventually see some of the new A320/21-NEOs based at STN at some point?
