Corrrr it seems like Flappy is the man to know! I remember someone saying once that Air India and PIA never have the same handling agents, if thats right, thatll leave Servisair out!

Mr Flaps 16th Mar 2007 19:44

Air India
 
That will give Swissport and Avaince something to fight over. Air Italy are being handled by Avanice. No one knows who will handle Wizz yet but it could be Aviance again.

A few questions....
 
With the return of Aviance at stansted this may be a chance for them if it true about Air India and PIA. Wonder whos aircraft would be actually fit to fly :\ especially with the recent events.

Finally someone has taken the brave step fowrard to introduce the self check in, it would be a dream if EZY did it with all the business pax that pass through, would save the check in staff a headache!

A helicopter landed on 14r on wed and rumours flew around that it was Emirates management having a look?? anyone know anymore on this? My guess is that they saw the state of disrepair that sat 1 is in and wanted to get back on :eek:

I noticed that the domestics is having some work done to it, is it just a few gates or are they trying to revamp the whole area and rearrange gates so that the desks are not around the corner from the gate entry area (gate 86 ) Does anyone know more of what the plans seem to be and when it will be completed by?

And i have seen that coopers end road has been closed but not very sure what is being done or built, is it an extension to the car hire places just done or something else.

Thank you to anyone who can shed any light regarding my questions, just curious as to what is going on. :hmm: All very busy at STN.

Flaps : Are you sure it was Air India ?

xx5572 : There is a brief DN about Sat 2. Basically there is work being done to improve the layout of the Domestic Gates and in particular I think an improvement around 83. The 86 problem crops up all the time and is mentioned time and time again. As is the problem at 84 whereby there is a bit of wood in the way of the PSAs. (And NO, it can't just be moved :ugh: )

The chopper on 14 was quite exciting. Rumour has it the stairwell to gate 15 had been visited by cleaners earlier this decade in preparation.....;)

As for self-service............:\ :\ :\ :\

Air India
 
As sure as I can be. About it being Air India, there where three of us all trying to catch a word while they where in Zone D.
Or if not it may have been Royal Bengal Airline.

Eos Airlines
 
I see Eos have a flight from Stansted to Gander/Miami tomorrow anyone
know whats thats all about ?

Eos have enough spare aircraft capacity to be able to offer ad-hoc charters. They have done quite a number of these since they started. Miami is too far for a 757 nonstop hence the stop at Gander. I believe they have done a number of such transatlantic operations from Continental Europe as well.

Thomas Cook
 
Thomas Cook added some spice to this evening by coming in on a full emergency landing after reporting hydraulic problems. The airport fire services where in attendance as where BAA and they aircraft was escorted round to the back of the sat 3 where everyone left the aircraft safely.
The runway was only closed for about 20 mins while a FOD check was done and hardly any delays to inbound and outbound flights.

STN would be next choice for FCA longhaul, last year it came down to STN vs BRS for the routes and BRS won through, so STN may get a couple in near future I imagine, next years summer brochures are out soon so keep an eye out, you never know!

Pegasus coming to STN
 
Pegasus are starting scheduled flights, & are operating Ercan-SAW-STN three times a week, from 25th March.

xxx5572 25th Mar 2007 11:40

Pegasus????
 
Sounds great but never heard of them so could anyone shed any light on this please. Seems to me as if Turkey is the place to go this summer, Sun express 2 weekly, Pegasus 3 times weekly along side all the other carriers such as turkish airlines, kthy. Only time will tell if they all last the summer. :eek:

STN-JER with WOW
 
Anyone know who will be handling WOW flights STN to JER.
Starts 05May through 22Sep, Sat only.

tommyc2005 28th Mar 2007 12:36

Pegasus are just taking over from Atlasjet who operated last summer (previously operated by Onur for a couple of seasons, before that Bosphorous European - remember them?!). So it isn't really a new flight.

Turkey is indeed all the rage this summer it seems, Onur are returning flying on Mondays to Bodrum, and Thursdays to Antalya and Dalaman. Sun Express are adding Izmir on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

THY is upgrading to a daily A321.

This is the first time Pegasus have operated to STN, and is the first time that they have ever operated scheduled flights.

Pegasus
 
They did charters in Summer '04, STN-AYT-ECN

tommyc2005 28th Mar 2007 15:05

Stanstedeye, trust me, the Pegasus Istanbul-Ercan flights are on behalf of the same travel agents as Atlas, Onur etc, its just that this year it is easier to book. In fact, the service has been 'scheduled' before when it was done by Istanbul Airlines, with a tradition going back to the early to mid-90s. Since their collapse, numerous airlines have carried it on which has added nothing to STN but welcome variety, the pax numbers and days of operation (the times even) have been broadly the same.

Mr Flaps 28th Mar 2007 15:51

Pegasus
 
Saw the aircraft sitting on gate 13 today. Waiting for the flight to IST. Another contract in the bag for Avaince. Good luck to them. Atlas Jet are still around they are doing a few add hoc charters over the summer. They where in a lot in the run to Xmas running people out to Jedah.
