Thanks Exasperated, I'd just realised when I posted it that I missed out the VIE routes (I've added them on :ok:). Good to see them expanding, twice weekly to Vienna, almost putting EDI on par with MAN's 3x weekly service.
The updated schedule is as follows:

The 12 New Routes are as Follows: Blue = 737-800 | Red = 737-300 (All Based on August 2016)

New Beach Routes Summer 2016:

LS727 Tenerife TFS, B737-800, (2x Weekly - Tue, Sat)
LS705 Lanzarote ACE, B737-800, (2x Weekly - Thu, Sun)
LS715 Gran Canaria LPA, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Mon)
LS731 Zante ZTH, B737-300, (2x Weekly - Tue, Sat)
LS719 Kefalonia EFL, B737-300, (1x Weekly - Wed)
LS713 Heraklion HER, B737-800, (2x Weekly - Mon, Fri)
LS725 Rhodes RHO, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Sat)
LS711 Dalaman DLM, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Fri)
LS709 Antalya AYT, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Thu)
LS721 Larnaca LCA, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Wed)
LS797 Paphos PFO, B737-800, (1x Weekly - Wed)

New City Route Summer 2016:

LS851 Vienna VIE, B737-300, (2x Weekly - Mon, Fri)

I too would also envisage that a 733WL will be up in EDI for the ZTH and EFL routes. G-GDFO has been up at EDI already this winter for a few weeks, and her sister G-GDFM is up there now. A non-winglet 733 (not QC) could probably make the route also, but I would think that the 733WL is a better option - better fuel efficiency, greater range... makes more sense! :ok:

Is Newcastle a 2 or 3 738 base this year ? Only seen 2 operating out so far

Edit: GDFW positioned in from Norwich yesterday looks like a 3 base now

Jet2_738 17th May 2015 09:12

Yes, NCL is 3 738 based now - G-GDFS, G-GDFW, G-GDFY, and they're all in the air right now :ok:

Privilege Style B757 Summer 2015 Lease
 
Any news when the above will join the fleet? Or has the unexpected acquisition of G-JZHD meant that the B757 summer lease has been cancelled? Where is G-JZHD based?

It has not been cancelled.

It seems that an order for 10 x A320, 5 x A321 and a further 20 options on A320/321 may have been made. Should we expect an announcement soon?

TSR2 19th May 2015 19:44


Should we expect an announcement soon?
All depends on what your definition of 'soon' is.

That would be pretty major news! Source?

fa2fi 19th May 2015 19:49

Exciting news! I wonder if they're to support expansion / replace examples of other types. Can't wait to find out where they will be based.

Check your PMs! :ok:

Like I said, they may have placed an order, but I'd prefer to see firm proof from Jet2 or Airbus before believing the source completely

chaders 19th May 2015 20:30

I hope the source is more reliable than PPJN. Someone showed me this over there and I had to chuckle.

DjerbaDevil Privilege Style Boeing 757-200, EC-ISY has received its Jet2 titles

Meanwhile Boeing 737-800 G-JZHD has been at LBA for the last week over at Multiflight.

I believe it joins at the end of the month, as my company is looking after it at MAN.

seahawks 19th May 2015 22:03

EC-ISY due at MAN tomorrow morning from MAD.

DjerbaDevil 19th May 2015 22:45

Many thanks to all for the detailed information.

Looking forward to the big announcement. Someone said, some time back, that the moment could be the Paris Air Show in mid June.
If it is to be an Airbus order then my bet is the aircraft will be based at MAN and LBA.

EK77WNCL 19th May 2015 23:48

Very interesting, not throw in a few A330's? ;)

LiamNCL 20th May 2015 05:20

It wont be before time if its true , A321 ideal replacement for the 757

Station_Calling 20th May 2015 07:36

A321...
 

A321 ideal replacement for the 757
Not even close!

Jet2_738 20th May 2015 07:41

A321 - 757 Not even close!

^^ Totally Agree! The only true replacement for the 757 will only ever be another 757.

paully 20th May 2015 09:05

The 757 is almost unique..The acid test of comparability would be say Gibraltar. A fully laden 757 can and for many years did land and take off there. The A321 can`t do either unless empty...Not anywhere near the same flexibility
