Think it may come in conjunction with the results announcement tomorrow. Definately gonna be an A320 unit based, with crew night stopping, very much in line with the DSA set up.

I believe there is an Il 96-400T due in today about 2 pm, one of these


ematom1 16th Nov 2010 18:09

Still no easyjet announcement :confused: whats going on and anyone know what routes there haveing and what days there flying?

ATNotts 16th Nov 2010 18:39


Whats going on? In all probability nothing at all! Reading the spin from EZY regarding their results - it seems that they view their opportunities for expansion lie outside the UK, which given the lowly value of sterling against the euro comes as no surprise.

If they come, great, but I wouldn't stake my life on it happening in S2011.

I look forward to being proved wrong!

Quelle surprise, as the French would say! There seems to be a lot of people on here adamant that something is going to happen, and then it doesn't happen. I'll only believe it when I can book in the easyJet website...

BBC News - Jet2 to increase flights from East Midlands airport

Share this pageFacebookTwitter ShareEmail Print Jet2 to increase flights from East Midlands airport
The company said it was the only airline currently expanding at the airport Budget airline Jet2 is set to more than double its number of flights from the East Midlands, six months after opening a base at the Castle Donington airport.

The company said it planned to add a second Boeing 757 and recruit 39 new staff at the site in 2011.

By the summer it aimed to be carrying up to 300,000 passengers a year from the airport, as well as adding five new destinations.

Jet2 said the East Midlands was the fastest growing of all its bases.

Chief executive Philip Meeson said: "We are delighted that we've had such a successful first summer at East Midlands, and are excited about our flight programme for 2011.

"We are very proud we are the only airline currently expanding our presence at East Midlands for next year. East Midlands is the Jet2.com base which is seeing the largest growth for 2011."

Mickey Kaye 20th Nov 2010 19:34

In the 90's air kilroe used to do a bank cheque run in a Partenavia which crashed near Isly Walton if my memory serves me correctly. Later on in was flown by a Seneca of Bristol flying school.

Does anyone remember this route and does anyone know if it still runs.

ematom1 21st Nov 2010 11:18

Bit confused :s are jet2 expanding the flights that they were flying this year and the new ones to start in s2011 or are they just talking about the new routes they announced in may this year because they said they were basting another aircraft (757) and new hiers for the airport and are takein the flights from 9 weekly to 24 weekly. So are they to add extra schedules to them 24 weekly or the 9 this week or just adding more routes when they start the newer routes in s2011? Thanks Ematom1.

Mike16 21st Nov 2010 13:03

Well tom from reading the report looks like they are expanding Again, as 2011 is going to be there biggest expansion for EMA so they have good results and i do hope they give FR a run for there money.

Also very dissapointed to hear the EZY rumour was a false one, i did think it was a bit far fetched that they would return, but good news for EMA and Jet2.

Ian Brooks 21st Nov 2010 14:47

I think the only Easyjet expansion in UK is LGW/MAN/LPL

Ian B

OliWW 21st Nov 2010 14:52

That statement regarding Jet2 is just about the expansion they have already announced about 6 months ago... 2x B757 based at EMA for S11

LEEDS APPROACH 21st Nov 2010 15:54

Easyjet expansion
and Leeds!

I remember the EMA DUB bank runs well as I flew them for six months on the Seneca with Centreline 12 years ago. I think the operation moved down the road to Coventry some years ago, but I'm unsure if it's still operating.

ematom1 21st Nov 2010 20:58

so hopefully new routes anounced from jet2 again next year :) hopefully some decent routes that ema needs.

JonEMA 23rd Nov 2010 10:09

What routes do EMA need ? What are the market sizes and who would be the candidate airlines ?

FR- 23rd Nov 2010 10:14

RYG, NYO, CPH Ryanair
MAD Ryanair should move it back from STN, the loads were really high and good sales. But I think this is the market baby should try.

Also I wish someone would give WAW a bash, I know baby did but polish people just dont know baby, so it leaves the likes of ryanair or wizz

JonEMA 23rd Nov 2010 10:29

How big are these markets FR ? Pax per week ?

Jamie2k9 23rd Nov 2010 11:16

NYO and Trop were tried from BHX.

FR- 23rd Nov 2010 12:39

I know what you mean about the Oslo from BHX, but i dont understand why it works well from LPL. Maybe its time for EMA to have a go. After all we have seen a few flights switch between EMA and BHX.

dwlpl 23rd Nov 2010 13:11

i dont understand why it works well from LPL
Its because the routes are under pinned by big spending Scandinavian football supporters.

OltonPete 23rd Nov 2010 13:18

Don't forget Sterling's poor attempt at Olso, Stockholm & Copenhagen.

Loads for a Loco were dire, without even considering yields.

BHX-Torp was three times a week on a 189 seater and I was amazed
how long it lasted, it was awful and I can't imagine FR considering EMA.

BHX-NYO performed much better in terms of bums on seats but I monitored fares regularly (as I was considering using it) and other than school hols fares were rock bottom (not that expensive during school holidays).

I suppose this one is a possibility.

Ryanair Venice TSF is not bookable next summer, have Baby seen them
off this route?


FR- 23rd Nov 2010 17:43

Venice not sure whats going with it, not all the routes have been loaded yet, RAK has not bee loaded yet either. I guess we will have to wait untill just after Christmas.

Dick Fisher 23rd Nov 2010 19:36

Carcassonne (CCF)
As a regular on this Ryanair flight for the last 5 years, does anyone know what the plan is for next year?

I've browsed the schedule for Spring next year, and it looks like a 3 times a week service, or is that just for starters?

ematom1 23rd Nov 2010 20:52

Cyprus airways new route to larnaca i hear for next may does this takeover the eurocrypria flight?

Jamie2k9 23rd Nov 2010 21:02

Yes it replaces it.

Venice not sure whats going with it
Venice has also being dropped from Liverpool and I think it will dropped from East Mildlands as well from March. BmiBaby have being doing very well on the route since they started.

I've browsed the schedule for Spring next year, and it looks like a 3 times a week service, or is that just for starters?
It will be increased as a lot of routes are only loaded a low frequency to start with. It takes time to load all FR routes. A final decision will be made in Jan.

wanna_be_there 24th Nov 2010 06:57

ematom, cyprus airways are cutting back on routes, including the dropping of all BHX flights, so I doubt they will be comming to EMA.

OliWW 24th Nov 2010 09:10

We will be seeing a few more flights from Turkey in 2011... Freebird will be operating flights to DLM and AYT (as peak sum 10) but throughout the season on A320's.

paul atkins 24th Nov 2010 11:56

cyprus airways
the cyprus airways flight is on a charter direct replacement for eurocypria on saturday mornings. wanna be there can you tell me where you got the information concerning british airways cargo operating to frankfurt cheers

A planning application has been submitted for the construction of a hanger/office/apron facility at the airport for RVL, so it appears their re-location from COV will be permanent.
