There is a bit of confusion here. Just to confirm, this is where OPERATIONAL aircraft will be based, not factoring in 1x standby 737 & 1 standby 757.

Glasgow - 1 733, 2 738 & 1 757
Edinburgh - 4 733
Newcastle - 4 733 & 2 757
Blackpool - 2 733
Belfast - 2 733
East Midlands - 1 733, 1 738 & 1 757
Leeds Bradford - 7 733, 1 738 & 3 757
Manchester - 2 733, 5 738, 3 757

This is what the flights are on sale for, next years aircraft additions have not been acquired yet so things can change and I'm sure they will. There will be a standby 737-300 based at Leeds and a standby 757 based at Manchester to cover the 738 and 752 fleets. Summer 2013 should see a fleet of 44 operational and 2 standby aircraft over 40 operational this year. The plan is to have 50 operational aircraft in 2014 along with a new base.

Plans were out in place for a 757 to be based at Liverpool, but with Ryanairs growth at Manchester, the north was pretty saturated on the routes Jet2 were planning to operate. This new base should prove an ideal diversion alternative for East Midlands.....

Is there no longer an aircraft based at Stansted that used to do charters and night mail work?

My guess... Liverpool

The answer to your question is no. They moved the STN aircraft to EDI, swapping with Titan who moved one from EDI to STN. Made more sense as Titan are based in STN & Jet2 felt they could make better use of the aircraft on scheduled services from EDI. The mail routes were simply swapped over.

@ MKY 661

You've not really read righthandrule's post very well. S/he says that they pulled out of the LPL base because the north west was saturated with the type of routes they operate. S/he then hints that the new 2014 base would be an ideal diversion airport for EMA, hardly Liverpool I'd suggest.

I'd say BHX and DSA fit the bill pretty well, and of the two I'd go for the former. For their size, they have relatively poor coverage with Locos.

BKS- that's how I interpreted the post as well. Time will tell!

What ever happened to the talk a while back about expanding there operation at Belfast,they were gonna base another aircraft and start new routes.

COBHC 4th Nov 2012 17:21

or expanding the base at BLK?

there is currently less than ten flights a week with 1 733 based here at the moment. surely some of the seasonal flights should be made all year round?

they might realise that when the DLM, IBZ and ACE flights are fully operational?

also, a B738 or B752 wouldn't go a miss here ;)

Ernest Lanc's 4th Nov 2012 17:51

COBHC
jet2 are at the limit with just 2 a/c based at BLK is Dalaman and Lanzarote do OK..Ibiza has done OK before.

If Jet2 do expand with more routes and frequency at BLK. then a 3rd aircraft will be needed.

The plans for a 3rd aircraft seemed to be shelved, after FR expanded at MAN, the same time that FR threw their toys from the pram at MAN. Just as the recession was starting also.

Probably BLK will end up with a B757, as a 737 is not that great for Dalaman and 2 routes to the Canaries.

The fleet numbers given above donít seem to add up.

At the moment there are 11 x 757s, which do agree with the above.

There are only 4 x 738s in the fleet at the moment, so according to the list above there should be another 5 coming (and not six as previously reported) for next summer 2013.

There are 27 B733s including a B733 freighter in the fleet at the moment, which are 3 more than the operational aircraft+standby B733 reported above totalling 24 B733s.



Is JET2 going to sell/scrap any B733s for next summer 2013 perhaps?

DjerbaDevil's figures for each base add up to only 42 operational aircraft, rather than the 44 he says is the requirement for 2013. Looking at the Saturday timetables on the Jet2 website for peak summer, it appears it should be 2 x 738 (instead of 1) at EMA and 3 x 733 (instead of 2) at MAN. This would then make the 44 operational aircraft he lists as being the operational fleet for 2013.

This gives a total operational requirement of 10 x 738 and 24 x 733 (plus the 733F based at Exeter).

Lord Spandex Masher 4th Nov 2012 22:29

Possibly a leased Airbus at EMA too.

ematom1 5th Nov 2012 00:30

Possible leased airbus at EMA?

BasilFawlty 5th Nov 2012 21:40

I'm always wondering why they don't open a base in EXT. Get rid of the 733F (which is doing nothing except for EXT-EMA-EXT on weekday evenings) and replace it with a 733QC and operate some scheduled pax services during the day.

Ernest Lanc's 5th Nov 2012 21:46

I reckon it's Jet2's intention to monopolise the North from Scotland to the Midlands, before moving South.

BasilFawlty 5th Nov 2012 21:49

I know, but EXT is already a base, so it could be expanded to do limited pax operations quite easily.

757 Speedbrakes 7th Nov 2012 14:26

Well Basil, the 733F at EXT does earn the airline a profit.....

If there was a passenger market there that would increase profit I'm sure Jet2 would have done it. The airline employees a bunch of office bods and 'analysts' to sit there all day and look at look at this stuff. I don't think with jet2 being a larger operator now that its all done on the back of a fag packet from a pub in Bournemouth anymore!
