The 320s have come from Smartlynx previously so possibly them again

Looks like Smartlynx out of DSA and Avion Express and Titan out of LGW.

Assuming the first two can recruit any crew to fly the aircraft of course.

Last time I checked it was 2x A320 and 2x A321 from LGW and 1x A320 from DSA. Everything else operated by TUI. Newcastle is 4x 738/MAX. The 4 ACMI at LGW is essentially a like for like replacement of Norwegian pre-covid.

By all accounts bottom feeders Avion Express and Smartlynx havenít got anywhere close to the number of pilots they need for summer, so Iím sure itíll be a fun summer season for all whoíve decided to go down the path of cheap foreign contractors. TUI, Jet2, easyJet and BA are all signed up.

Really interesting - thanks for sharing!

Are the Max and 738 used interchangeably or will the Max be used on specific flights when there is a mix at a base?

I believe the Max aircraft will fly the same programme every week, and will not be interchangeable with the 738's, the Max will operate most of the Egypt & Cape Verde flights.

The 3 Edinburgh flights will be operated on "W" patterns by the ABZ or NCL based 738's

The leased in 787 at Manchester, I think is due to be a "spare" aircraft, so not included in my breakdown, and the Air Tanker A330 is not showing in any schedules at present, not certain if it might operate extra flights, or maybe replace a 737/763/787 , hence schedule it always subject to final confirmation.

As already mentioned, there is still a query about the SmartLynx A320's/A321's, and if they have enough aircraft/crews to go around for the summer.

I think the ďleasedĒ 787 is just the BLX 789 coming back for Summer but remaining on the SE register. Due to do MAN-CUN

I hadn't realised that Edinburgh operations were being slashed that much, considering that, pre-covid, the one based a/c was fully utilised.

No more than a couple. Generally an early rotation to the Med followed by an afternoon to the Canaries.

Believe they are going to be based at Aberdeen, Belfast & Norwich, but the 4th one is a bit more uncertain, had heard it might possibly be Cardiff

Are you sure itís not the 767? If Airtanker are operating for TUI I think itíll be on a backup basis to cover for the lack of spare if TUIP isnít delivered by Summer.
