There are 3 LS Canary Island flights with indefinite delays at Newcastle. Ryanair still seems to be moving so has there been a decision taken just by Jet2?

Serenity 14th Mar 2020 09:59

Canaries have 2-3 hr delays due ATC sickness

GAXLN 14th Mar 2020 10:01

STNFUE has turned back to STN so this seems to be affecting all of Spain and Canaries. Spanish PM due to speak on TV this morning I believe.

Funchal
 
Funchal seems to be still open. LS875 outbound now NCL-FNC.

BA2632 from LGW to ALC appears to be landing in a few mins. Not clear why Jet2 are following a different policy...

Maybe BA are just flying Pax in and out whereas Jet2 are holidays with a defined in and out date. 14 days quarantine on a 7 day holiday? Turn round and fly home.

From the Manchester Evening News:


Full statement from Jet2


In response to local measures introduced throughout Spain to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including the closure of bars, restaurants, shops and activities including any water sports, we have taken the decision to cancel all flights to Mainland Spain, the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands with immediate effect. We know these local measures will have a significant impact on our customers’ holidays, which is why we have taken this decision.

We are contacting our customers who are currently in these destinations, and who are due to travel, to advise them of their options, so we urge customers not to call us.

This is a fast-moving and complex situation and we are reviewing our programme as a matter of urgency, so that we can fly customers back to the UK.

The health and safety of our customers is our number one priority, and we would like to thank our customers for their understanding.
Understandable I suppose, but seems odd to do this while flights are in mid-air, rather than overnight??

The third, LS545 to LANZAROTE departed Newcastle at 10.43?!? :confused:

It looks like ALL the various Csnary Islands flights are now airborne and en route.
AND LS1411 STN-ALC is also airborne. ???

Going without passengers as they still have people to bring home!

You think these are re-pat flights?

Alteagod 14th Mar 2020 11:05

Looks like the ACE was canx during pushback from BFS. Back on stand.

nclops 14th Mar 2020 11:07

Not necessarily re-pat flights as such but they aren’t going to leave the passengers they had booked to return today out there so outbounds are leaving the UK empty to return as originally planned.

So what happens now then? Since Jet2s bread and butter has vanished and they’re now left with a handful of routes, which it looks likely will also vanish at some point in the near future.

A well run and robust airline, they’ll come up with something, but what?

I think all there is to do is weather the storm and operate a massively reduced operation where possible until the sun shines at the end of the tunnel.

Alteagod 14th Mar 2020 15:42

Cherry pick some BE domestic routes maybe?

Long tunnel as I think the summer season is going to be a write off not helped by insurance companies now excluding this nasty virus from any new policies. Europe is at the start of a long road where even a few big boys will go under.
