STN-NCL
 
Anyone know if this route will be operating this Summer, and if so, by which airline?

STN-LCL
 
A quick check via google shows a few options via Germany and it will set you back close to a grand! On this I think you should let the train take the strain!

Why have EZY pulled out of this route, it does back many years.

geordiejet 28th Jan 2011 09:04

The loads are pretty low - apart from the Friday and Sunday flights. Wonder if flyBE or anyone will take over. I'm hoping for a last minute change and EZY continue the route - like they did last September.

Obama Visit
 
I know its abit early But details have come in that Obama is scheduled to come to the Uk from the ,24th-26th April. As STN is Obama's first choice of London airport i am guessing that he will be landing in there again.

Official State visit will go to Heathrow,as did Emir of Qatar last year on his State visit!

Would be good to see it again though!!

wanna_be_there 17th Feb 2011 21:52

on the subject of unusual visits, can I ask a question.

Im sure I read at the time of STN being granted as A380 (cat10) ready, it would be the main EK diversion point for TATL/UK flights.

Emirates boost for Stansted

So far though, the only 2 EK that have had to divert over the UK have been a YYZ flight (fuel) and an LHR flight (snow), and both went to MAN.

Whats the deal then, and is STN actually a diversion point for them?

Come on everyone, let's all leverage our market leading headroom going forward
 

Stansted Airport has won approval to take massive Airbus A380 jets from Emirates Airline on divert in a move that could hold enormous long-term potential for the Essex hub.
It's unlikely to be enormous long term potential as the biggest aircraft at the minute in Essex is a single A340-300. On divert, unless on an emergency, Emirates would use Gatwick were Heathrow unavailable and vice versa, if both London fields were out, then it's Manchester as it's an exisiting Emirates station. Hence on those days where LHR, LGW and MAN are all unavailable then STN it is. Even LGW's A380 stands are miles from the terminals on new remote stands and are also claiming similar enormous potential....


The management’s strategy is to leverage the market-leading headroom Stansted enjoys in London – in terms of passenger numbers and movements of both freight and passengers – while Gatwick and Heathrow struggle with capacity.
This is the the utter nonsense that I am surrounded by every day at work. Like minded people, blackberry fondling marketing types spouting identical nonsense about schemes that never happen mainly as these people are 99% blah and 1% delivery.

market-leading headroom
= vast areas of empty stands and empty check in desks

Vilnius is back, with FR
 
News just in (various Irish and Lithuanian sources quoting FR): New daily flight from STN to Vilnius (VNO), the capital city of Lithuania, starting in May. This is in addition to the Kaunas (KUN) flight. Good news for STN. Not bookable yet though. Part of a small new FR base at VNO (5 destinations).

jpthomas72 22nd Feb 2011 10:01

Vilnius
 
Flight times now out, bookable. Well chosen. STN-VNO 16:50-21:25, VNO-STN 21:50-22:30. Daily, starting 1st May. STN-based plane then.

according to the gatwick thread, its looking like air asia x will be moving there ops to gatwick and air berlin will be moving the rest of there ops to gatwick. whats the reason for air asia x moving to gatwick if true and whats the future like for stanted now will it only bean airport for ryanair and easy-jet.

tommyc2005 23rd Feb 2011 14:47

The quicker STN is sold the better. Look at how LGW has flourished, partly by taking STN's airlines. It makes good sense geographically for both Air Asia and Norwegian to be at STN over LGW. The same goes for Air Berlin, but the joining of Oneworld made a move inevitable and unless they leave the alliance I can't see them going anywhere else.

In more positive news, I have heard that North Cyprus Airlines which is the successor to KTHY is to commence in the summer.

jdcg 23rd Feb 2011 15:22

I think the reality is that LGW generally gives higher yields than STN, judging from prices on flights that operate from both airports for EZY. Always seem that bit higher than at STN.
I've always thought that Biman should sell its LHR slots and move to STN as most of the Bangladeshi community is this side of London anyway. Hardly a catch for STN I know...:hmm:

I believe this requires the UK/Malaysia bilateral to be renegotiated but I might be wrong. I have heard this rumour from three different sources so it must have some substance to it.

I dont believe that AB will move the rest of their operations though they have a big passenger flow between FMO/PAD and East Anglia which would not welcome the move to LGW.

In the 90s and noughties, Stansted took a great deal of Luton's traffic (TNT, Ryanair, etc). This was achieved through cross-subsidy by BAA from the more lucrative Heathrow and Gatwick, and happened despite Luton being better positioned for the north of London catchment area.

Now that Gatwick has been freed from the dead hand of the BAA, and itself has capacity as a result of the recession and migration of transatlantic services to Heathrow, it is winning business from Stansted. Stansted can no longer rely on what are now illegal cross-subsidies, although it may benefit from sharing ownership with Heathrow.

The most attractive airport for London is Heathrow, in terms of catchment area, proximity to the centre, and connections. However, it is overcrowded, expensive and slot restricted. The next most attractive in terms of catchment area is Luton, but it is far too small, and is not being managed well due to its legacy owners (Luton Council). Gatwick has a slightly smaller catchment than Luton, but is in a wealthier area and has more capacity. Stansted has the smallest catchment area, and land communications are mediocre. However, it has both capacity and the ability to construct more.

It's no surprize that the airport of choice for London is Gatwick, and Stansted probably has most to lose under the current ownership pattern. The only way Stansted can grow will be after Gatwick is 'full', and by competing on price to fill its underutilised facilities.

Otherwise, look forward to further reductions in traffic.
