And we all know if MOL has a hissy fit with management then he'll threaten to withdraw services as he demonstrated in the past.

BA will withdraw their freighter service next month. Will Air Atlas operate affected routes in their own name?

STN needs to do more to promote better links to the airport which are still a pain. The rail network needs to be more reliable along with the M11 which clogs up frequently. Parking charges don't help which put people off driving. Come on management talk with National Rail and improve the rail links from the Midlands North especially. A 2 car DMU rumbling through the countryside in 4.5 hours is no good.

Uh-huh. At least other airlines are slowly increasing here, but still far too much orange and harps for my liking.

Atlas Air will not be allowed to operate the routes in their own name. That's the whole reason Global Supply Systems was set up in the first place.

Another healthy increase for passenger numbers at Stansted for January `14 +7.2% making that the 5th consecutive month of growth,MAG are obviously doing something very right & with all the new contracts for Summer `14 growth & beyond still to come http://images.ibsrv.net/ibsrv/res/sr...ies/thumbs.gif..............Thanks to FRatSTN for previously posting the info regarding the "filling in" of schedules during the quiet afternoon zone at Stansted for Summer`14,this bears out the statement added when MAG/Ryanair announced their 10 year deal, that Ryanair would & would indeed need to add/move some schedules to take advantage of the quieter times of day at Stansted...so looking forward to further take up in future years as the contract rolls on:D...Regards The Southside..

Who was it who claimed that STN is the wrong airport in the wrong place?

Let's not do it again.

From beginning of April, Air Moldova will now operate on Tuesdays and Saturdays instead of Mondays and Fridays.

Flight times are pretty much the same though, only 10 minutes later than previously. 9U833 now arrives in Stansted at 13:20, with 9U834 leaving 50 minutes later at 14:10 on both Tuesdays and Saturdays.

But the most interesting bit is that ALL flights will be upgraded to the Airbus A320 and will no longer be operated by the Embraer 190. It would seem the route is doing quite well back at Stansted and despite Carpatair giving Chisinau a go from Luton.

The not so good news is that it seems Aegean Airlines has removed the Stansted flights for the summer, leaving just the 3x daily Heathrow flights. Presumably Ryanair starting a daily Athens flight has something to do with it!?

Just seen this on Stansted's web site
Sorry if its been talked about on here but I can't find it anywhere.

Manchester Airports Group (M.A.G) is today celebrating the first anniversary of its £1.5bn acquisition of Stansted Airport, which has opened up an exciting new chapter in the airport’s history.
In the first 12 months of new ownership, Stansted has already notched-up some big achievements, including:
launching a £260 million investment programme to improve the passenger experience;
agreeing long term growth deals with Ryanair, easyJet and Thomas Cook;
attracting new airlines: Air Moldova, Atlantic Airways, Loganair, Aegean, Transaero;
returning the airport to growth for first time since 2007;
securing CAA agreement to free Stansted from economic regulation;
gaining corporate business support for direct long-haul services.

The bit I'm talking about is long term growth deals
Transaero ? What route are they doing ....

Transaero
 
Transaero ? What route are they doing ....


they operate a TU204 freighter to and from Moscow on Saturday nights in summer.

Could a PAX/CARGO flight work rather than just a cargo flight?

LadyL2013 1st Mar 2014 10:36

What aircraft will TOM be basing out of STN this summer, purely 738's or a couple of 752's too?

That's good news. Any idea who the handler is

dc9-32 3rd Mar 2014 08:07

Missed opportunity maybe for GSS. Could they have offered a wet lease B777 to Qatar Airways under a variation of their B747 AOC ?

Stansted Airport Plans Premium Lounge for Blue-Chip Clients

Interesting?

sxflyer 6th Mar 2014 07:26

The lounge is a great addition, yes it could mean long haul is imminent but either way it is a useful tool to raise the profile and image of the airport amongst the business community and premium travellers and get more of them passing through. It fits well with the enhanced EZY & FR offer.

They need an article in Canary Wharf magazine as SEN have done with their message being almost exclusively ease of use and the first class lounge - bang on for the demographic. The actual destinations served barely get a look-in

According to an interview with the Etihad Regional CEO, Etihad Regional has shelved its plans to serve DUS from CBG and LCY due to a lack of suitable slots at the DUS end and will instead take over AB's DUS-STN route with up to four daily flights, using its Saab 2000s and thus freeing up the Q400 currently used by AB to STN.

Not sure if that is a smart move...

sxflyer 7th Mar 2014 07:12

They would have to do pretty well to screw it up, this is the one route that has held its own over the years against true LCC competition and I think was one of Air UK's first international services. This one should be seen more as a DUS-East of England rather than just London area. Presumably it would still be sold through AB

Increased frequencies are good, though it's an overall drop in seats of around 34 per day. It would allow better connections to AB's long haul routes.

Having Etihad Regional at STN wouldn't be a bad thing. If you're going to have a small regional player on board you could do worse than it being one backed by one of the world's most financially powerful carriers.
