TUI/Freebird LBA - Antalya

Would appear that this mornings Freebird flight from LBA to Antalya, operating for TUI, is now flying tomorrow morning. Lots of unhappy families!

No news here. Typical YEP filler fodder.

1755 LGW-MAH on a Sunday in the TUI Summer 2024 schedule. Is this is a 787?
Can’t seem to work it out via any method.

if you try and book a holiday that flight doesnít show. The Sunday is a early morning 737 thatís all it offers. So maybe a glitch in the system

Reading about TUI (not just the UK airline, but the parent company, TUI AG) doing some sort of deal with Enter Air of Poland to provide wet leased aircraft. Details seem very vague at the moment. Does anybody understand what this really means ?

It will be named Fly4... It won't solely just operate for the TUI Airline group, but they'll pretty much have the exclusive rights to the aircraft during the peak summer months. It's basically a way of having more control on the contract and quality of the peak summer lease-ins that they have now. As they grow, I'd expect the likes of Smartlynx et al to not be included in the TUI summer plans for example.

Atleast 3 of the initial 4, Fly4 (TUI) aircraft, are expected to be ex-TUI Airline group planes. 2x ex-TUI Airways and 1x ex-TUI fly Belgium so far.

thanks for the confirmation. I guessed as much by the 1 hour 15 turnaround compared to the 1 hour for the rest of the weeks flights at Mahon

Hi, was watching NCL movements this week as was flying back with TUI yesterday. On Wednesday G-TAWV went tech in AYT and passengers appeared to have been flown back to MAN. G-FDZS positioned in to operate 2 flights and then appears to have been parked up since early Friday morning with G-TAWW picking up the program on Friday. Just out of interest does anyone know what happened to TAWV as it seems to have gone back to LTN for repairs and is anything wrong with FDZS??? Thanks in advance

Slowly transfer airframes to the new entity and gradually close TUI (the airline down) over the longer term?

In one word No!

It's simply to provide extra capacity during the summer months and to have more control over it.

Iíd say that this is the beginning of the end of Tui sadly.
