Doubt it, the 757s are supposed to be staying for a while despite their age. Most, if not all of them recently had LCD screens retrofitted into the cockpits.

I thought jet2 are operating 2 Airtanker 330ís,TC the other 2??

chaps1954 21st Apr 2018 16:32

Think Air Tanker only have 3 available for commercial use i:e 2 to TCX and 1 to LS so LS will have to source another from someone else.

LAX_LHR 21st Apr 2018 16:50

I think one is coming off MT lease after this summer and then backfill with an ex Scandinavia A333 (to become G-TCXD).

LS could then take the 2nd Air Tanker.

Just been checking STN Wiki page and Monastir Habib Bourguiba International Airport is down as starting May 05th 2018, this is obviously not happening as not in the booking section of Jet2 website, however could it be an error and should read 2019, I know nothing has officially been announced for summer 2019 but just thought I would share my findings.

Just had a look it appears to have been removed.

Monastir would be an odd choice seeing that the holiday operators now use Enfidha, and had done for a few years before the break in flights.

Your correct it has vanished from wiki, very strange as I posted as soon as I seen it and yes it would have been a very strange destination given most airlines now or soon will be returning to Enfidha.

Hopefully we will see the release of summer 19 this coming week.

GLAspotter 23rd Apr 2018 16:45

Anyone know dates when the four ex-Transaero B737-800's are due in service for Jet2?

EK77WNCL 24th Apr 2018 14:16

Looks as if Bourgas is to be Jet2's newest destination, schedules loaded for Summer 2019 from:

MAN - x2 weekly
BHX - x2 weekly
GLA - x1 weekly
EDI - x1 weekly
LBA - x1 weekly

NCL, BFS, EMA are listed but yet to show schedules. STN is not listed

A quick dig through the Jet2 booking engine also suggests that the following will be new routes:

Izmir:

MAN - x2 weekly
BHX, GLA, LBA, NCL - x1 weekly

Chania:

MAN - x2 weekly
BHX, LBA - x1 weekly

Lleida seems to be a new ski route from Stansted for W18/19

Very pleasing in my opinion!

Lon12 24th Apr 2018 14:19

VLC..?
 
Where is Valencia in Jet2...? Lol

EK77WNCL 24th Apr 2018 14:24

Jet2 stopped flying to Valencia about 10 years ago

Plane.Silly 24th Apr 2018 14:25

So most peoples suspicions were right about BOJ. Chania (CHQ) also seemed a decnt option given its size, operations at HER and that FR have just pulled out. Could that have been a last minute addition?

As for Izmir, didn't see that coming, but with the Turkish Revival, not surprising.


Where is Valencia in Jet2
Not this year it seems, maybe for 2020?

LBIA 26th Apr 2018 14:13

Murcia Corvera is now on sale for summer 2019. It will operate 3x Weekly (Mon, Wed and Fri) from both LBA & MAN.

daz211 26th Apr 2018 14:19

Wonder why Stansted 2019 is taking so long to be announced I did hear last year that they were planning a big base increase with upto 14 based aircraft for peak summer 19 not sure if this will still be the case with the utilisation on based aircraft from ALC and PMI but Iím still expecting big things for Stansted just have to wait a bit longer to find out the details.

Could it be that they are waiting for STN to confirm slots for them?

Also 14 aircraft will require a substantial increase on a vast amount of routes. Will the market sustain that.

According to Jet2's press release its only the LBA and MAN routes being transferred from MJV to RMU . The is no mention of either EDI and NCL.

Bit of a strange press release and perhaps Jet2 may be trying to take a flyer on other airlines but not committing to transfer of all routes at this time. Jet2 were the only airline that publicly backed Covera and put out a press release several years ago that they were transferring imminently to Corvera and that never happened as the airport never opened. With the operational concession removed from the previous company a few months ago, Corvera now has to re-undertake approvals procedure for the new operator AENA to open Corvera. The previous concessionary is now suing for damages and local land owners have not been paid for land taken to build the airport, so a lot of legal arguments still ongoing. A lot of the equipment at Corvera is obsolete and has not been maintained so the airport needs a complete survey. Knowing how things move over here in this region, slowly, no one can predict when approvals will be given and politicians have only declared Corvera will be operational from the end of the year - which might have something to do with regional elections and to look good. Operational or ready for a airline to fly in/out could be two different timescales. Also worth noting that a plane no bigger than a twin prop has landed at Corvera so at some point an airline will have to test the airport with a passenger plane.

From what i can see, LBA is on a B733 (148 seats) and MAN is on a B738 (189 seats). A 3k m runway would be more than sufficient for takeoff/landing.
with only the 2 routes being on sale for now i would imagine (like others have suggested) they're dipping their toe in the water. If things go well, we may yet see the re-introduction of NCL/EDI, maybe even more?
Still think it's a totally bonkers airport so for now, well done to Jet2 for commiting but don't be surprised if things don't work out like MJV did

_aax1 28th Apr 2018 13:14

Jet2 website showing Bourgas, Izmir and Chania as new routes from STN on their homepage advertisement. I imagine next week we will hear an offical announcement.

garry8g 28th Apr 2018 16:13

Jet2 latest Boeing 737-800, G-JZBM is the latest aircraft that has been delivered to Jet2 overnight.

She arrived into LBA at around 07:19 this morning.

EI-BUD 28th Apr 2018 22:22

Corvera
 
The Jet2 statement said that San Javier airport will close at the end of November 2018!!! San Javier is convenient for the largely inbound tourist make up going to the coastal places close to MJV and Murcia. Corvera seems to be quite in land and for this reason I wouldn't be surprised if Alicante/Altet will pick up some of the traditional MJV bound pax...

The runway is not the problem. It's the angle of decent and the surrounding terrain that has yet to be proven with a passenger plane.

I believe the plan is that San Javier should be fully closed by end of Jan 2019 (but this is Spain so who knows). I can't access the Jet2 Facebook page for information at the moment so cannot confirm this, but other people posting on various forums in this region who have seen the Jet2 Facebook page are saying that Jet2 will reduce the number of routes to the Murcia region from 4 to 2 (ie 4 routes went into MJV and only 2 will go into Corvera when it opens) and Jet2 will strengthen their presence at Alicante/El-Altet. A lot of people on the Southern Costa Blanca used MJV for convenience but Corvera is now further than travelling to Alicante/El-Altet.

Plane.Silly 2nd May 2018 08:43

Anyone else a bit surprised STN still hasn't gone on sale for S19.

Either they're struggling with the airport (though with MAN/EMA also in the portfolio, this would seem unlikely), or they have something very special planned.

LAX_LHR 2nd May 2018 09:18

Looking at how they added extra capacity quite late on for this season, I’d be surprised if they were struggling with STN to be honest.

Obviously that doesn’t answer why STN is being launched later than all the other airports, but I’m sure we will find out in due course what they have planned.

LBAflyer22 2nd May 2018 10:26

I don't think they are struggling Planesilly. That extra capacity is coming from a further leased aircraft - which suggests that Jet2 at STN are not struggling but rather performing beyond the expectations.

It was also added quite late on in the year again suggesting that they can fill the plane, profitably.

Looking at the timetable ... Burgas has appeared in the drop down box. So would imagine today the timetable is going to be uploaded with the announcement tomorrow.

One last thing - could it be that Jet2 are waiting on STN to release the slots. If rumours are to believed that they want a 12 to 14 base aircraft they very much could be waiting on STN to confirm slots.

Plane.Silly 2nd May 2018 11:19

I should have made it slightly clearer. I meant to say they'd be struggling with communicating with the airports owners MAG (which also own MAN and EMA), whether they're still coming to an agreement

I'd heard the expansion rumours too. 12 seems more likely than 14. But i didn't think slots were too much of an issue at this stage, they normally get confirmed at Slot Conferences later in the year

daz211 2nd May 2018 11:32

I had heard 14 based aircraft but that was before the ALC and PMI based aircraft was announced.
so I would expect a minimum of 12 based aircraft for peak summer 2019 but wouldn’t be surprised if it was more.

Junta Leader 3rd May 2018 18:59

It appears to be on sale now and looking for some more -800s at STN:

G-GDFY currently returning a day late from KGS after yesterdays outbound from MAN (LS743) , anyone know why?

bladesman 7th May 2018 23:40

Just a quick question,

Are this years leased a321/a330/757 aircraft fitted out with the jet2 cabin like VGYL was last year? Particularly the Titan 757 with it retaining the Titan livery and not recieving jet2 titles.

And does anybody know where the second a330 is coming from yet?

cheers

Johnny [email protected] Pants 8th May 2018 20:40


anyone know why?
Yes, I know.


And does anybody know where the second a330 is coming from yet?
There isnít a 2nd A330 for S18, there will be 2 for S19 though.

garry8g 11th May 2018 18:15

Has anyone any updates on the four ex-Transaero B737-800's and know dates when they are due to start flying for Jet2?

Stanstedeye 11th May 2018 20:36

The Titan 757 (which was for Leeds) appears to be replaced at STN TOM for a second 321.

TD in service around 21/5 and TC around 30/5.

Titan Airways Boeing 757-200, G-POWH is not due to start operating for Jet2 from LBA until May 24th..

BasilFawlty 13th May 2018 01:24

G-POWH is most likely temporary subbing for the second A321, of which the delivery has been delayed it seems.

G-POWH is currently in STN and is substituting for A321 G-POWN.

Thanks for the info!

castleford tiger 13th May 2018 12:36

ANYONE know why LS251 the 8.15 to FARO went around yesterday. Weather was good and whilst I saw it do this the climb out was pretty harsh. I understand it happens just wondered if anyone knew why. There was a third pilot in the cockpit so possible training?

Thanks
