I don’t want to on the party but I just see these potential new flights as low cost services to Covid 19 and potential new variants. Why not introduce a direct service to Brazil just for good measure? This year is not the right time.

No worries LTNman not sure you are spoiling a party certainly not a STN party.

The "airline" appears to be putting its self out there for the benefit of new potential investors.

Of course the pandemic will have an influence on proceedings (but see above).

Possibly if acquiring a first aeroplane maybe eying the cargo market to start towards an AOC...Only a thought.

In a recent statement say are talking to LGW/STN/BHX/EMA to fly two destinations so premature to claim it is a STN party.

Fair go with your thinking as long perhaps as you carry the same sentiment on in the LHR thread too as Vistara & Spice Jet from the Indian sub continent have been awarded slots there this Summer

Potential new variants exist for all of time. Might as well just lock everything up and never do anything. COVID-19 was a new variant. And as we saw with the Kent variant they can occur anywhere.

Southside bobby,

I have concerns where some communities have a reluctance to take a vaccine travelling to countries where next to no one is vaccinated or tested, whether they are flying from Stansted, Luton or Heathrow. There is being proactive and there is being reactive and this is one airline I would not welcome this year.

LTNman...

Whilst not denying your legitimate concerns I would humbly suggest you possibly take those concerns elsewhere now.
The STN forum is not the place for a Government vaccine roll out programme debate.

Agreed this isnít the place for vaccine debate, although I would note India is the worldís third highest vaccinator and a major producer. So perhaps concerns about Indian route risks are overblown

Then stay hidden behind your sofa, and don’t forget to change your bed sheets every day. The rest of the world is moving on.

Given the size of its population and its manufacturing capability it's quite surprising India isn't top of the list for number of vaccinations, however per capita wise I imagine they have vaccinated but a miniscule of their proportion of their population.

FlyPop looks like yet another in a string of virtual airlines, they even state on their website that they are looking to begin operations without their own AOC! Recent history is littered with these carriers that look to flog seats at rock bottom prices to ex-pats through ethnic (perhaps to be more PC one should say "specialist") travel agencies in cities such at Birmingham, Leicester, Bradford and London; their "wish list" of UK airports reflects that to some extent. I just feel for families who are fooled into parting with hard earned cash for a trip back home to see the relatives, in all probability blissfully unaware of the status of the "airline".

I shall be amazed if it takes off at all, let alone lasts more than a few weeks. That said, I suppose one company could make the business model work, and I could be eating my hat in 12 months time!

An interesting development with the B789 as perhaps the A330 would have larger below deck cargo capacity.

There must be many low lease rates readily available on both types in the current circumstances however which maybe why plans are being advanced.

One thing I will say for FlyPop is that it’s been a long time in the making. Their website is more professional than some ‘real’ airlines.

There’s also said to be significant investment from the U.K. government’s future fund...

ATNotts - Not that I want to extend vaccine chat further but India has done about 5% of their population which isnít too bad by global standards

I believe if they go with the 789 it will be ex Norwegian.

Think LTNMan is just jealous that STN and LGW are both being looked at as a potential for another new long haul venture and LTN has to stick with short haul only 🤣

Ryanair MAX update.

MOL update on Ryanairís Boeing 737 Max order and said that Ryanair expected to take delivery of the first 737 Max in April 2021 and expects to operate 16 of the type in 2021.

Asked about consumer confidence in the 737 Max Mr OíLeary said that any passenger that didnít feel comfortable flying on the aircraft could get the next available flight at no cost, they could not however disembark and seek a refund.

Re the Norwegian B787`s they had assembled a fleet of over 30 with a mix of 8`s & 9`s within the various offshoots.

Norse Atlantic Airways have in recent days signed for 9 with a combination of both models.

Should leave a candidate or two for flypop then notwithstanding remedial work required on some with the engine issues.
