Jet2's latest brand new B737-800, G-JZHV, is on it's way to the UK.

Don't know if it's heading for Leeds or Manchester......but given the weather forcast...could be Manchester.

LAX_LHR 22nd Feb 2017 19:06

Been listed as Manchester for about a week on their system.

Most likely go to MAN as by the time it arrives LBA will be closed, the upgrading the runway lighting to LED this & next winter season meaning a NOTAM is issued for overnight Aerodrome closure.

Jet2 A330 (AirTanker lease)
 
I was having a look through the AirTanker fleet, to see which aircraft was possibly joining Jet2 for Summer 17. (Thomas Cook have G-VYGK, used for last couple of years , and also have G-VYGM joining for Summer 17).

I'm wondering if it will be G-VYGL, as this has recently just been painted in all white(from the normal grey), and would allow for the red 'Jet2' titles to put on, much like Titan's A321?

It would seem the logical choice...:)

BasilFawlty 27th Feb 2017 18:29

Since those three are the only ones in use for commercial passenger services, G-VYGL would make sense indeed.

Off Stand 27th Feb 2017 21:40

You are correct, G-VYGL is indeed the aircraft heading to Jet2 for the summer.

When BHX was launched as a base for 2017, the Jet2 announcement indicated "3 new 737-800's" would be based there from April so perhaps some of the new deliveries will be based there...?

BasilFawlty 27th Feb 2017 22:04

New doesn't mean the newest ones, could be any frame starting from G-JZHJ.

irishlad06 28th Feb 2017 00:40

The A330 is confirmed to be painted in full jet2holidays livery so white is a good starting point. Painting should be completed in next few weeks.

Flying Wild 28th Feb 2017 05:58

I think you'll find the base is opening with four of the new 737-800's.

What routes are LS going to be using the 330 on?

Johnny [email protected] Pants 28th Feb 2017 08:58


What routes are LS going to be using the 330 on?
The morning Palma daily, plus RHO, ACE, another Palma on a weekend afternoon plus a couple of other routes that I can't remember. All ex MAN.

GLAinsider 1st Mar 2017 15:55

It will be operating MAN-TFS also.

garry8g 2nd Mar 2017 16:02

Jet2 just acquired another second hand B737-800, arriving Apr/May 17, ex Transaero E-IRUG, bringing that to 3 secondhand planes this year....so far!

lbalad 4th Mar 2017 21:25

When is the A330 due to arrive?

Is it likely to make an appearance at LBA if only for PR purposes?

B712 6th Mar 2017 19:08


When is the A330 due to arrive?
G-VYGL will arrive at Manchester on the 24th May.

As for the Leeds visit, it has no reason to visit Leeds, I understand it will be solely based at Manchester, including maintenance, if needed.

:)

Junta Leader 9th Mar 2017 13:55

Jethros reporting speculation that G-GDHI might not be joining the fleet.

chaps1954 9th Mar 2017 14:36

I`m sure I read somewhere that MAN will be losing the B733 before summer is this correct and if so do we have a date?

LBIA 9th Mar 2017 15:07

Forward bookings must be doing well as Jet2 are adding yet more flights from Leeds/Bradford for summer 2017.

Ibiza increases from 8x to 9x weekly.
Corfu increases from 1x to 2x weekly
Zakynthos increases from 3x to 4x weekly
