Good to see SunExpress further expand before starting the new two new routes. Hopefully more to come. Also two destinations not been served at Stansted on a regular schedule since KTHY I believe.

There has been one KLM Cargo (Martinair) flight to Stansted this year and, as posted previously, it was a one-off horse charter. FR24 has a habit of showing flights that don't exist!

Also, Turkmenistan Airlines has not (yet) operated any cargo flights to Stansted this year.

Will SunExpress really fly to Adana... or is it more likely to be to the (soon to be completed) Cukurova airport nearby instead ?
I'm wondering if Trabzon or Kayseri might also see non-stop 1x or 2x weekly to the UK in 2024

Yes I believe it was fully covered in previous post's including the one you have quoted.

But, plans were officially submitted by MAG this week. The previous post's mentioned that outline planning permission would be submitted at the end of September..

The previous post's discussed the vague plans and child like drawings of the proposed terminal expansion.

Now that the official plans have been submitted we just have to wait and see. But I have no doubt that planning permission will be granted.

No where in ANY of my posts have I mentioned or suggested that it would be rejected.

If you could find any remarks relating to that in any of my posts I'd appreciate you posting it for all to see.

I stated in my earlier post this comment "I have no doubt that it will be granted".

Your tone was totally uncalled for in my opinion and seems to become the norm of late. What happened as it never used to be like that. Your reply was obviously you being flippant but I take it you know the difference between "granted and rejected" 🤔

As far as "lack of knowledge and research"! What type of comment is that!

We share our information here on pprune in a civilised manner. I'm obviously not local to STN but it's an airport I've always taken a lot of interest in since my first visit in 1980.

As far as research is concerned, I usually do but it was obviously a mistake on my part thinking the application was submitted last week. Oh silly me, it certainly fluttered your feathers.

Aurigny returns

Another nice addition for SUM24. Aurigny will resume STN from GCI 3 times a week!
Great to have Aurigny back and seeing GCI on the boards again!

Turkmenistan Airlines

London Stansted Airport currently has two long haul airline's serving two long haul destinations.

London Stansted is to lose Turkmenistan Airlines as the airline has announced that their London flight will move to London Heathrow.

From the 04 November 2023 Turkmenistan Airlines will operate Ashgabat to London Heathrow Airport replacing it's existing service to London Stansted.

T5427 ASB 12.00 LHR 14.00 73H 6
T5428 LHR 15.20 ASB 02.30+1 73H 6

Turkmenistan Airlines last served London Heathrow until February 2019.

It's a shame to see yet another long haul airline leave London Stansted but in my opinion this latest news is not totally unexpected.

Turkmenistan Airlines is very unlikely to provide any sort of significant growth or strategic connectivity for STN... it's very much not a tourist destination (unless like me, you're interested in the obscure). Doesn't seem like an airline loss that STN should worry about.

This may not be the best thread but is prompted by the previous post.
The Seasonal Agricultural labour force is now, I understand being increasingly supplied from the -Stans, replacing Eastern Europe who now have no surplus labour How are they getting here?

It's an airline loss in the fact that it's another long-haul airline and long haul destination to leave London Stansted.

Turkmenistan Airlines flying between Ashgabat and London was not about significant growth or strategic connectivity, regardless of what London airport the airline serves.

You're obviously aware of the country by your comments, so I don't need to explain anything further. (FYI, you're not alone in being interested in the obscure)

I don't think anyone is worrying either.

But I don't think that Stansted Airport management would have wanted to lose Turkmenistan Airlines from their airline portfolio and route network.

It might have only been a weekly flight flown by a national carrier to an obscure country. But it was a long haul flight from a national carrier, something of which Stansted Airport managemnent have stated in the past that they are keen on attracting.

No one is probably worrying, so no need to worry yourself, disappointed maybe, probably especially STN management, but they are more than likely not worrying.

Turkmen

They been using a B777 on the flight at Stn which was much fuller in the belly than in the cabin only gonna use a B737 at Lhr so not much freight uplift there. They do hold slots for thier cargo at Stn Sundays I think but not sure its turned up yet maybe it will after the pax flight goes.

Regards.

I wonder how profitable a once weekly flight to and from Heathrow, that is far more expensive than Stansted, will be for the airline.

Agreed.

Pax figures are often single figures from what Ive seen. It wont be profitable at Stansted (from the pax deck). It certainly wont be profitable at Heathrow.
