Great news! Every little helps!

Wonder what theyll be flying.

I think they sold their last Electra to Buffalo

RJ100 or maybe the A319.

So with Air Moldova and Atlantic Airways poached back, who's next on MAG's hit list? Aegean is back during peak season (Summer/Christmas). Maybe they'll relocate the LGW services to Stansted full time?

Air Arabia Maroc, Air Baltic, Air Europa, Air Serbia, Meridiana? All possibilities perhaps?

FRatSTN 13th Nov 2013 21:32

I'd like to hope Blue Air. They don't really bring much to Luton. I think they'd be more valued back at Stansted.

Wizz will operate up to 3 departures a day to Bucharest from Luton, hardly compares to Blue Air's 5 per week or whatever it is.

Gatwick has to be the big focus for attracting airlines to switch airports. Possibly could be a number of other airlines there where a move to Stansted shouldn't be ruled out.

Id say any operator of small jets into LGW is ripe to be taken thanks to the charges. Flybe have cut and run (Dash-8 and E jets), air Moldova (E jets) and Atlantic Airlines (Avro jet) have moved, so, is there anyone else?

You are not missing much with blue air horrible night flights and not even their planes sometimes. With Wizz increasing this could be possible but no way would Wizz ever move in the next 5 years to Stansted as more routes and frequencies are announced at Luton

pamann 13th Nov 2013 22:04

No one mentioned Wizz moving did they? (Not that old chestnut)

Boeing737-8 you have a lot to learn about the aviation business: Never say never :ok:

Did you get Atlantic Airways muddled with Atlantic Airlines who are now part of West Atlantic?

Aurigny currently uses AT7s on 6x daily flights between LGW and GCI. As of 31 March 2014 they will use an E95 (leased until June) on five of the six and an AT7 on the other. Fees will still be exorbitant despite the equipment upgrade.

But they treasure their Gatwick route more than anything - though perhaps in a few years there might be a refocussing of London services to provide each airport with 3x daily, thus spreading the cost?

Monarch!
 
Saw Monarch looking over the building work in the terminal at stansted yesterday and the operation around satellites...

Seen by a lot of people wandering around with swissport management,this would certainly explain why swissport are investing in so much new equipment.

Ah yes. I probably did

sxflyer 16th Nov 2013 14:39

An interesting one but I'm not really sure what they bring to the table. Is this instead of LGW/LTN? In addition to them?

They would have FR to directly contend with on most of their core bucket and spade routes, most city routes are already covered which contrasts with the situation at LTN, and they don't really do long haul anymore. All it really leaves are a few Turkish and North African routes EZY/FR could do if they really wanted to.

I wouldn't get too excited about Atlantic, I seem to remember that their schedule was sketchy to say the least. Flights were scheduled but more often than not got cancelled or ran horrendously late. I've not heard the Saturday night transaero lately, is it still around ?

Eleven more airports, including Luton and Stansted, to use full-body scanners | World news | theguardian.com

Can't copy link as on phone but fr announce 12 routes for summer 14 and increased freq on other.

fivejuliet 21st Nov 2013 15:16

New routes to Basel, Bordeaux, Brive, Bucharest, Comiso, Dortmund, Lisbon, Osijek, Podgorica, Prague, Rabat & Skelleftea

davidjohnson6 21st Nov 2013 15:30

I thought Bordeaux, Comiso, Dortmund, Lisbon and Rabat had already been announced some weeks/months ago... but I suppose things work differently in the Ryanair world...

Skelleftea is interesting - is it marketing support, or some other reason ?

FRatSTN 21st Nov 2013 16:10

I think it means 12 new routes in total for Summer 2014 that didn't operate in Summer 2013.

I'm surprised they haven't added Minorca or another Greek airport such as Kalamata or Zante. They seem clear choices to me. I guess there's still time.

whitelighter 21st Nov 2013 20:20

I suppose they have to do something with extra 7 base aircraft next summer.

Next winter will be interesting as they say they will fly all 47 rather than parking 20.
