Well that is very good news, but it should be kept quiet until something is formally announced, if it even is. Thanks.

Jet 2
This report re CWL and Jet2 is a load of tosh.

Jet2 do not like southern air.

Perhaps now the person who put up fictitious report on Wiki will now take it down and get a life.:ugh:

antagonistic new poster alert ! always a worry.

I have it from the horses mouth (Cardiff Airport Management) that Jet2.com are still not interested in Cardiff Airport. However the team do contact them every month.

The Jet2.com CEO has made it very clear to Cardiff Airport management that operating scheduled flights south of East Midlands does not fit with their strategy in the short to medium term.

Cardiff Airport have informed us that despite this their quest to find replacement traffic in particular for Malaga and Faro continues at pace.

Maybe it's time that people don't listen to a word that's posted on wikipedia and this is why we communicate with the airport management to ensure we are discussing facts and not fantasy.

No Cabin Crewe just a little fed up with people who alter Wiki and then use that to put up false claims on numerous aviation sites claiming to have an exclusive.
I am told that this site encourages accurate posts and does not condone totally false contributions, if I am wrong then I apologise to you, otherwise I will criticise people that put up spoof info.

mathers_wales_uk 30th Apr 2012 21:55

To be honest Cabin Crewe i'm with Chock o late with this one regards it's first post or millionth post.

I know some wants a great future for Cardiff Airport and i'm one of them however to believe something that has been written on wikipedia before it is released in the public domain is quite naive.

This is not the first time that this has happened and unfortunately won't be the last. However now I have been in contact with Cardiff Airport management I hope we can put this fictitious rumour to bed.

Alas, we can always rely on the spotters clubs for the up to date information on route development.

Jet2 may soon be moving any spare airplanes to EMA so I think CWL is obviously further down the list of priorities.

BHD2BFS 1st May 2012 12:14

If and when baby close, do you recon jet2 will take on domestic routes ie bfs-ema or only the holiday routes?

pwalhx 1st May 2012 12:20

What spare aircraft do they have and why will they be moving them shortly to EMA?

sunday8pm 1st May 2012 12:33

Interesting situation on the cards at EMA if Baby do close (although I hope they don't). Its a pretty big FR operation there with 6/7 aircraft based and others have commented that they wouldn't necessarily be able to quickly jump in and stifle competition if Baby do close before November.

Easy are strongly rumoured to be returning soon and some of their big fish have been spotted at EMA recently. If they do indeed return and base a few A319's here then I can see them keeping the likes of EDI, GLA and BFS.

Its no secret that Jet2 have grand plans for EMA and Baby closing certainly frees up space for this to happen. Its unclear as to whether they wouldn't rather just pinch Baby's bucket and spade routes.

pug 1st May 2012 12:54

Wasnt the reason easyjet pulled out of EMA that WW were going after the same market and so they found it difficult to find room to expand there? There must also be a fairly large gap to be left open for both Jet2 and easyjet should the worst happen to WW? Particularly for Easyjet and the European city routes.

ematom1 5th May 2012 01:34

8 new routes for EMA winter 12/13 summer 13, Boeing 737 to be based bringing it to 2 757 & 2 737. :)

jabird 5th May 2012 09:48

Jet2 announced in early October that they'd be starting up MAN-IST, but this seems to have been quietly dropped, although I'm not sure when.

Have scanned back to the start of this thread (#4), which goes as far back as mid-October.

Did it falter straight away or have I missed something.

IST should have been quite a high profile destination, obviously up against the hub & spoke of TK, but there should have been room for both with the right marketing.

When I went there myself (from MAN) in Dec 94, we were part of a group of 7 and there were three other passengers on a 738 (iirc) with TK. Turkey has come on quite a long way since then - or is it still easier to fill jets to the sunny resorts on the Med, I guess it always will be!

First B738 delivered to TK on 30.10.1998.

Travelled that route frequently myself during the 90's and the TK flight was rarely less than 80% full. From memory I think the aircraft was a B734.

Penworth 5th May 2012 15:11

Apparently the reason the Istanbul route was dropped was due to the lack of decent (ie daytime) arrival and departure slots.

OliWW 5th May 2012 15:23

Jet2s expansion at EMA is pathetic... 1 aircraft per year since they started, considering bmibaby are losing 9 aircraft at EMA, what is all that about! Good luck Monarch!

jubilee 5th May 2012 15:41

Think you will find Jet2,and other airlines don't have that many spare aircraft lying around just to fund expansion at EMA. The fact Jet2 is increasing at EMA should be applauded, and not criticised. Aircraft to buy or lease cost a lot of money,and the phrase finance planning comes to mind. they that do it right succeed,those that don't

Just remind me which of these airlines is operating from EMA next summer?

bluepilot 5th May 2012 16:09


Baby are bust, always have been bust, never made a profit! Jet2..profits year upon year, planned expansion etc = stable profitable company.

EMA has 3 a/c this year, 4 next. Who knows what else. Jet2 are not interested in LOCO short haul routes, therefore many of the unprofitable baby routes will be left to the likes of Flybe, oh and one aircraft from Monarch? whoooppy wooo.

Jet2 are expanding the Jet2 holiday business and the airline has become the servant of the holiday demands.

My sympathy goes out to those losing their jobs at Baby, I hope that Jet2 , Flybe and monarch can provide you and your families with some hope.
