G-IFIT spotted at CWL this morning. Any significance ? Also seem to use St Athan for maintenance a lot more these days.

SWBKCB 15th Apr 2016 16:30

Probably the same as when G-IFIT was spotted at Southend a couple of months ago

I'll go with Stansted base maybe PMI base. A330 keeps getting mentioned as well.

canberra97 17th Apr 2016 17:34

A Stansted base what to go head to head with Ryanair, I don't think so as we all know who will win!

And you know as well as everyone else that the rumour of an A330 was quashed a few months ago when Jet2 made an announcement which mentioned that they will not be receiving one, as plans to charter an AirAsia 330 was scrapped.

So no AirTanker A330 for Jet2 either, are you sure? They wouldn't suffer the regulatory problems AirAsia did.

When is the remainder of Jet2's Summer 2017 schedule to be released. I remain quite intrigued with these CWL rumours amongst others regarding the airline moving further south ...

Where have the CWL rumours come from?

To be honest, I personally have no idea.

It was something that was rumoured elsewhere, where an article to Jet2 crew recruitment for 3 new airports including BHX was posted. I can't find the link now, and I know that PPRuNe doesn't like external links anyway ...

pug 19th Apr 2016 18:26

I find it hard to believe that they would commence recruitment prior to any announcement. And a new base would be quite a big announcement.

That's my issue exactly, hence the reason i'd like to know where it came from in the first place. Putting two and two together it may actually make some sort of sense ...

Recruitment is now year round anyway.

pamann 19th Apr 2016 22:14

A Stansted base isn't such a crazy idea. Jet2 will need to expand into the SE one day. Surely.

Other airports cope quite well having two or more carriers on similar routes. There's no reason why the UK's fourth busiest airport can't diversify and attract some competition from carriers. Don't Jet2 compete directly on routes from EMA, MAN, EDI and probably other airports with FR? Jet2 also offer package holidays and are now quite big on this. I'd see their main competition as Thomas Cook or Thomson at STN to be honest.

I actually think a Gatwick base would be a worse decision than a STN one if they want to set up shop in the SE. I'm sure the time will come, sooner than later?

A Stansted base would be a return, there used to be a Royal Mail and charter operation before they swapped round routes with Titan, it is possible they may do that again.

yeo valley 20th Apr 2016 07:06

the jet 2 roumer started when jet 2 were doing pilot training from st athan and also aircraft air tests.ppl seen this and took this as a new base.jet 2 been getting maintence done in st athan and also pilot training got to be done some where ,so picking aircraft up from st athan they did pilot training at the same time.more than likely see a lot more of same thing from st athan.

Council Van 20th Apr 2016 12:57

Mention is made of Stanstead and competing against Ryan Air. Jet2 is more of an airline for Jet2 holidays than a loco seat operation now days. Most of the growth has come from the holiday sales and a move to the South would be as an all inclusive opp rather than seat only. If our Southern friends would be happy to fly with the Norths favourite airline is open to debate.

For A330 read B767 from the latest rumour. Pilots and engineers ready qualified and the opportunity to go to florida for winter sun whilst providing plenty of capacity to Palma, etc on a Summer Saturday.

tws123 20th Apr 2016 21:26

Airports that had a strong interest in a Jet2 base in recent years were Bristol, Cardiff, Birmingham, Liverpool and London-Southend.

flyby1 21st Apr 2016 06:33

Ema and ncl on sale. Ema to go to 7 aircraft next summer. Also 3 new destinations naples, split and girona. And a reintroduction of cdg.

garry8g 21st Apr 2016 16:21

Another B738 joins the fleet today for the summer, leased from Primera Air (OYPSA) based at Manchester.

Is there still a B738 to come from Air Europa to be based in Glasgow?

BAladdy 22nd Apr 2016 12:56

Does anyone know when LS are planning to release there S17 schedule for EDI and GLA?

flyby1 22nd Apr 2016 14:06
