Looks like Jet2 are acquiring a wide bodied aircraft for Manchester Ops next summer 2017.

As Manchester-Palma flights on service LS831/832 both Saturday and Sunday are showing an aircarft with a 2-4-2 seating config.

Looking at the page source it's a 327 seat A330-200 this time - maybe purely a coincidence but the only operator I can find with 327 seats on the A332 is Hi Fly.

Could it be Air Tanker? I've heard they are looking to place a 2nd A330 with an airline partner?

Perhaps you 'heard' about it on pprune 2 or 3 pages back!? Surely manc plane spotters are the worst!?

You need to get to bed earlier as you have a real bee in your bonnet about Manchester tonight,
heard any good rumours about Church Fenton recently?

LAX_LHR isn't even a spotter !

And that post said 'for A330 read 767'. Hardly ties in with what he is saying.

It's Hi-Fly

The page source for the Manchester Palma flights LS831/LS832 has a count of 387 seats(not 327), which would mean that it is an A330-322 aircraft.

And if it's Hi-Fly, that would suggest that it is aircraft CS-TRI, as that is the only aircraft in their fleet currently showing a 387 seat layout.

Interesting times for Manchester next year.

Air Europa Boeing 737-800, EC-LTM positioned into Glasgow this morning from Leeds as EXS61, where it will be based for a Jet2 summer lease.

LBIA 26th May 2016 14:14

Seem like Jet2 is expanding its presence at Leeds Bradford Airport with signing another major property deal. The airline has agreed to lease a further 54,866sq ft unit inside the Leeds and Bradford Airport Industrial Estate (Old WW2 Yeadon Avro Factory)


So much for Jet2 buying property over in Manchester, Have they sorted a deal out to buy the Monarch Engineering Hangar yet?

You live in Leeds go and knock on their door and ask

New Baggage Service
Just noticed on their Facebook page, Jet2 have set up check in desks at their package hotels abroad, so you hand over your luggage, gets labelled and put onto a truck and off to the airport. Passengers get free time without bags and on arrival at the airport they go straight to security with just hand baggage..

Interesting, if it works, but will certainly be one up on their competitors and an incentive for the punters to book jollies with them..Forward thinking here..

Obviously not yet available at all hotels in all resorts but they have to start from somewhere..The set up of the logistics involved will be interesting.

It was trialled last year in a few hotels in Benidorm, it worked very well and was well received. This year the concept has been expanded to more hotels, and from a conversation I had with my barber who has been to Tenerife on many Jet2 holidays over the last few years he thought it was a fantastic addition.:ok:
