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 15:32

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 15:50

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.

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

EK77WNCL 24th Apr 2018 13:16

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!

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

EK77WNCL 24th Apr 2018 13:24

Jet2 stopped flying to Valencia about 10 years ago

Plane.Silly 24th Apr 2018 13:25

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 13:13

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 13:19

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

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.
