Yesterdays Billund flight operated as usual
Sorry Sharklet_321, I usually find your posts interesting and factual but I have to disagree with you on this one.

As I said, the Billund flight 'normally' operates twice weekly on a Monday and Wednesday. Since the route began on October 30th last year it has operated the following flights:
Monday Arrivals 12 Departures 12
Tuesday Arrivals 2 Departures 2 (14/11 and yesterday)
Wednesday Arrivals 11 Departures 9 (2 night stops departing Thursday)
Thursday Arrivals 5 Departures 7

In 2023, there were 7 weeks with one flight and 2 weeks with 2 flights
So far in 2024, there have been 2 weeks with 1 flight and 8 weeks with 2 flights.

It will be interesting to see if there is a second flight this week.

The Maersk 767s seem to suffer tech issues quite frequently, for instance the aircraft due in Monday this week hasn’t flown since arriving in Billund from China, and having its onward leg canx at the last minute. The aircraft was replaced by Tuesday’s flight - delayed from Monday it seems. Almost certainly a late tech issue. On another occasion a few weeks back the aircraft leaving Hurn for return to Denmark started and taxied to the runway, and lined up for departure, after a few minutes holding returned to stand and overnighted at Hurn. The route seems to have settled at twice weekly -good - but not great OTP with the elderly 767s - less good.

The Billund flight appears to have switched its days of week to Tue and Thu from Mon and Wed. To confirm, it is twice a week not three times a week as I had mentioned in a previous post.

EasyJet are continuing their increased service to Geneva for next winter which is daily except Wednesday
Double daily on a Saturday and again for 6 weeks on a Sunday

TUI seems to be having a shuffle with the schedules for next summer 25 with big gaps and missing a lot of the increased flights for this summer
It’s way to early to speculate for S25 , they usually announce new routes around mid April but at the moment the 2nd based aircraft looks to be staying

According to SPD_travels on X who is very reliable there is a airline announcing a new base at its spiritual home tomorrow

Jet2 at Bournemouth anyone?

In all seriousness though will be interested to see if TUI do perhaps have something new in store for 2025 for Bournemouth

Very cryptic, Jet2 at BOH would make sense on a spiritual home level. They’ve apparently been eyeing up the South Coast recently as it’s the last unserved region on their UK network. However, could BOH support a big enough base?

Im perplexed by the spiritual home statement, am I missing someting?

I've been racking my brain over that cryptic report and hadn't thought of Jet2, but it fits perfectly and to be honest there isn't another UK carrier that doesn't have a base at its "spiritual home", at least not one I can think off.

Methinks 3 x 738 base from late March 2025. Pure conjecture on my behalf. If slots aren't available at LGW, BOH is the obvious choice from which to enter the Southern England fray. Perhaps all will be revealed this week.

Spiritual home could refer to BA with BOAC’s base operations at Hurn. But somehow I very much doubt it ! Jet2 far more likely and they were of course based there as Channel Express for many years.

Of course the only other airline could be Virgin to Gatwick as I believe that's where they started, however seems more likely now I think of it being Jet2 at Bournemouth as it is where it all started for them as Channel express

Who knows my jet2 was a bit tongue in cheek, however looks like it will be revealed tomorrow whoever and wherever it is.

Virgin at Gatwick did cross my mind after my previous post, would there be room for them?

jet2 at BOH would not be a surprise IMO, guess all is to be revealed tomorrow anyhow.

My guess would be Virgin Gatwick if this has any weight to it.

I can't see Jet2 setting up a sizeable enough base at BOH. The bases they've set up in more recent years start with minimum 4 aircraft and have expanded within the first year of operations. Personally I think CWL would be a better fit for Jet2 and eventually, they'll find a way into LGW I'm sure.

Think there might be a curve ball heading your way tomorrow then.. Again, just my opinion based on rumblings of recent times.

Well I'll hapilly eat my words on this one. Jet2 Bournemouth routes now on sale for Summer 25. I'm sure someone will post the full details before long.

A great addition for Bournemouth and slightly different offering from Jet2. Given this is their first venture into a smaller UK regional airport (besides Blackpool when they were much less established on a national level), I wonder if this may lead into an eventual expansion into other smaller airports in time; ABZ, CWL, EXT, NWI to name a few examples.

I think it would be helpful if BOH built another shed, it will be a bit of a squeeze especially in the Customs hall.

Come to think of it, it might stir TUI up!

Interestingly quite a lot of crossover between the 3 based airlines. Perhaps too much?

Alicante - Ryanair, Jet2
Antalya - TUI, Jet2
Corfu - TUI, Jet2
Dalaman - TUI, Jet2
Faro - Ryanair, Jet2
Fuerteventura - Jet2
Funchal - Jet2
Gran Canaria - Ryanair, TUI, Jet2
Heraklion - TUI, Jet2
Ibiza - TUI, Jet2
Lanzarote - Ryanair, TUI, Jet2
Menorca - TUI, Jet2
Palma De Mallorca - Ryanair, TUI, Jet2
Rhodes - TUI, Jet2
Tenerife South - Ryanair, TUI, Jet2
Zakynthos - TUI, Jet2

Although looking at it I dont think Ryanair will be too fused, however TUI now have Jet2 on all but 2 of their routes. Is there enough to share is my question. Or will this effect TUI in the long run.

That's assuming Ryanair keep the same routes in S25, but in any case I doubt Jet2 will phase them too much.

TUI Gran Canaria is not on sale for S25 (ends April and resumes October 25) so looks like that won't operate.

Kefalonia and Paphos are the 2 routes that remain exclusive to TUI., but frankly the TUI schedule for S25 is still a mess so that could all change. I imagine they wouldn't give up on their newly added second based airframe just yet.

Looking at the frequency (once or twice a week), is that two based aircraft for Jet2 ?
