BAW adds a weekly Summer flight to Berlin from STN,to accompany those destinations already announced of Faro,Malaga,Palma & Ibiza all by ERJ190...

BA to Berlin
 
This route surprises me.

I'd have expected to see another sun route, if anything. MAH, ALC, CFU would have been higher up the list of possible destinations if you ask me. A once weekly route to Berlin seems odd as most folk go for the weekend or at maximum a few days, but a week?

Do we have a schedule for this? I'm going to guess it'll be a weekend like the others?

Or are the waters being tested sun routes vs city destinations?

It's purely to get the jet to Stansted for the summer routes. This way it can be done on a revenue flight rather than just burning fuel getting it from LCY empty.

pamann 11th Mar 2016 14:22

BA's website confirming it as '6 times a week'.

We will see once it goes on sale. Link to this below...

New flight routes and destinations from British Airways

SWBKCB 11th Mar 2016 16:23

That link says daily from LCY and once a week from STN? Both from 19 June

It has been updated as it quite clearly stated earlier today '6x weekly'. Obviously in error.

Anyhow it's interesting and will make a handy connection for folk travelling from Berlin to London for a short weekend break, or vise versa for UK travellers wanting a slightly longer break. However for more flexibility people will choose Ryanair. What will be interesting will be whether they offer any routes for the winter 16/17 season. Ski routes could be a clear winner.

For all these scheduled BA marketed flights, what will be the lounge facilities at STN for all the Avios'rs ?

BAladdy 13th Mar 2016 16:03

BA CE and eligible exec card holders will be able to use the Escape Lounge at STN

whitelighter 14th Mar 2016 08:48

The escape lounge is quite pleasant. It's no T5 Galleries but then what is?

Certainly on par with BA destination lounge son the continent

j636 15th Mar 2016 17:44

New drop off charges. 3 for 10 minutes and 50 for 11 minutes.

Stansted Airport drop-off charge increase 'an absolute disgrace' - BBC News

whitelighter 3rd Apr 2016 20:29

I guess they'll keep upping the charges until people stop using it.

The queue in the mornings is huge so the 2.50 charge wasn't putting many off.

No doubt AENA managers at Luton and other airports will be watching closely. I'm sure if they think they can eek another 50p per car out they will

LTNman 4th Apr 2016 05:14

The word disgusting is often used to describe drop off charges and is often a hot topic on the airport's facebook page. If the charge was hidden in the price of the airline ticket no one would say a word.

Passenger expectations is that airports should be charities and charge for nothing.

If an airport is dominated by players such as Ryanair and Easyjet who don't believe that an airline should pay for services they get from the airport operator, then someone else has to. That someone else is the passenger.

So as you say, either the air fare goes up, people wind up paying for drop off, trolleys, fast lane security, or any other wheezes that the airport can dream up to replace revenue they are not getting from the airline customers.

This I think is why a domination of low cost (no frills - call them what you will) airlines is not necessarily a good thing for the passenger experience.

Thomas Cook - Summer 2017
 
MT's full Summer 2017 schedule for STN is now as follows...

ALC - 2x weekly
LEI - 1x weekly
AYT - 2x weekly
BOJ - 1x weekly
CUN - 3x weekly
CFU - 2x weekly
DLM - 4x weekly
FUE - 2x weekly
LPA - 1x weekly
IBZ - 1x weekly
EFL - 1x weekly
ACE - 4x weekly
LCA - 1x weekly
LAS - 2x weekly
PMI - 3x weekly
MAH - 5x weekly
MCO - 6x weekly
REU - 1x weekly
RHO - 2x weekly
JSI - 1x weekly
TFS - 6x weekly
ZTH - 3x weekly

Volume wise is fairly similar to this summer, however perhaps unsurprisingly a drop in Turkish flights in favor of predominantly the Canaries. Once again looks like 3x fully utilised A321's during the summer peak.

In terms of long-haul, it's a much better mix with LAS increasing from 1x to 2x weekly and CUN from 1x to 3x weekly. However MCO drops from 10x to 6x weekly for Summer 2017, therefore a reduction of 1 flight per week as the schedule currently stands.

Maximum total fleet based at STN will again be...
3x A321
2x A330

Thomson launching weekly Montego Bay Jamaica for summer 2017 on Thursdays.

Cancun not showing in brochures for Summer 2017 however it is bookable flying on a Wednesday.

Orlando showing in brochures for summer 2017 as a Wednesday departure, however this is not showing any availability on website and would overlap with the Cancun departure.

Early days still I suppose.
