Good for Jet2! They seems to be very shrewd as to what they do, and the general feedback as to how they have been treating their customers regarding refunds and re-bookings are only positive.

Time we had a choice down here, and I wish all at Jet2 good luck with this new base.

One mans meat etc etc. Easy may regret that decision in the fullness of time but meanwhile Good Luck, Jet2.

BRS is one of EZYs biggest UK bases and reportedly quite profitable for them. 16 or 17 aircraft were planned before covid hit.

Capacity has probably come from TCX and Bmi regional going bust.

easyJet has been increasing its BRS size nearly every year - should have been 18 based aircraft (10 320s, 6 319s, 2 321s) in 2020 had the pandemic not intervened.

Ryanair is still a substantail presence at BRS. In 2012 it did have a fallout with the airport reputedly over parking charges and reduced its base size from five aircraft to two at that time, but it maintained all its services by using aircraft from other bases. Since then the base has grown again but Ryanair also still uses aircraft from other bases to augment its BRS network. TUI is also a notable presence at BRS - pre-pandemic it should have had six narrow bodies and a B787 based for summer 2020. Thomas Cook had three based aircraft at BRS and has never been fully replaced, so Jet2 probably thought there were some gaps to plug.

Just listened to an interview with Jet2 CEO Steve Heapy who made the point that they are aware of the competition at BRS. It was not a snap decision to go there but one they have been considering for a while.

There was never any questioning Jet2 heading towards the south-west eventually and Bristol was always going to be the prime contender, but slot/overnight parking caperbility and competion from the likes of EZY and TUI was enough to throw the spanner in the works to maybe see a CWL or BOH operation prop up first - frankly none of those are quite such an issue for BRS now.

Reference EZY supposedly going up to 18 aircraft pre-pandemic, was that not on the basis of them having acquired Thomas Cook slots? I'd be surprised if they even maintained that into 2021 anyhow as EZY will absolutely not be anywhere up to 2019 levels again any time soon.

The Jet2holidays and Jet2.com owner – formerly called Dart Group – reported operating losses of £111.2 million for the six months to September 30, against earnings of £361.5 million a year earlier. It fell to a £68.7 million pre-tax loss from profits of £278.6 million a year ago. In what would normally be its busiest period, the airline flew just 990,000 passengers in the half-year, down from 10.07 million a year earlier as plunging demand and restrictions amid the pandemic crippled the aviation sector.
Jet2 issues holiday caution after £111 million loss despite coronavirus vaccine hope

Loss is not as bad as I had feared (a horrid loss nonetheless).

G-DRTY is now out of paint in the Red/Silver livery, named Jet2Turkey

CWL757 24th Nov 2020 19:24

I know it's early days and a lot can and will change, but is the A330 retuning next year? Also what's the plan with the 321s now? Seems HLYA has been moving about a bit.

Any idea where it is?

irishlad06 25th Nov 2020 02:08

as far as I know it is in QLA - it arrived into MAN at start of March in all white registered G-TCDD from memory and never got moved to the Jet2 register - it was then positioned to SNN before lockdown 1 and is now registered as OE-IOV and went to QLA a week back.

Flying Hi 25th Nov 2020 09:09

Back to Lessee then?
FWIW G_HLYF is at MAN and did a local 'cirvuit" on Nov 23. Possibly to keep it 'current'?

Rt Hon Jim Hacker MP 25th Nov 2020 09:55

Lessee or lessor?

Flying Hi 25th Nov 2020 09:57

Lessor? My bad:uhoh:

Rt Hon Jim Hacker MP 25th Nov 2020 10:13

In which case, I believe you are incorrect. It is due to go into service with J2 after paint and interior fit out. Early 2021 by all accounts.

No, they arenít coming back.

CWL757 26th Nov 2020 14:05

Didn't realize they were gone for good. What a shame :(

G-GDFN & GDFO
 
G-GDFN (737-300) presently having a nice outing up and down west coast of Ireland ex DUB.
Is that prior to joining others at RMU or is there a cunning plan for it and GDFO at LBA which hasn't moved in a while?

JFP didn't say they were gone for good, just that they weren't coming back next year.

CWL757 26th Nov 2020 21:06

Sorry I must have misread the post. Hopefully they'll be back for S22 then!
