Jet2 would find it easy to get route support, e.g. lapland flights/their flights to Jeddah this winter just gone, don't think that would be to much of an issue, clearly something they haven't yet tried...

SFB could be operated, yes with a one stop, however, flyglobespan dropping out of BFS, could be a perfect opportunity for EMA-BFS-SFB-BFS-EMA with no flight to Sanford from EMA anymore, YYZ would work, but JFK was just pure example, I have to say, it wouldn't work unless it was on a regular basis.

Where are these jobs then?. I spoke to a new Jet 2 F/O at EMA last week and he said that recruitment had been increased across the board, and that during the summer they were reducing the amount of ad hoc flying / charters etc and concentrating on the normal stuff. Going to be an interesting summer with lack of Egypt etc i agree but i don't think they will suffer from crew shortages as you pilots always say everyone's hacked off and leaving and surprise suprise you stay and take the wonga. :\

I'm sure I read that TOM is reinstating flights from EMA to SFB in summer 2012 along with CUN and POP? Jet2 could I agree also offer such flights with a stop en route but surely the runway at EMA is long enough to allow a 767 to do these flights non stop? Filling them profitably with passengers could I admit be the problem though.....

SFB is reinstated next summer weekly on a Saturday. The long haul routes from EMA are SFB, CUN and PUJ all weekly with TOM / FCA.

Jet2 will not be gong long haul from EMA for at least 5 years. Thats from high up the heirachy.

With 3 aircraft confirmed now from Jet2 for next summer, I assume at least another 3 or 4 routes should be announced soon?

Yes, especially with Corfu being one of the shorter routes from the UK. They currently fly EMA to Malta which is usually slightly longer than the Corfu route. They are however up-rating some of their engines on just a few of the aircraft, mainly because of the new European flights from Belfast City Airport (runway length/weight), so I guess these may also be used on such flights in the future. Perhaps they will keep the ex-Thomson Airways 733s they are currently recieving with the higher-thrust settings.

Nice Advert for East Midlands (London North)
I see East Midlands just made it onto the map for 'Airfields within 2hrs 30mins of London for the 2012 Olympic Games. Not a bad advert really, on page 24 of the pdf doc. http://www.dft.gov.uk/pgr/regional/l...ortoptions.pdf
Lets hope we see some business out of it !:ok::D
