Is it only LBA using the B752 and all other departure airports are using the A332?

GLA's flight was the week before..

Has someone got their 'dirty' mind on?, you could say the same for DRTI
To quote Spock, "It's only logical", just rounding off the DRT line (still waiting on J,K,L and P)

JonnyH 2nd Dec 2019 12:45

Looks VYGL may have had something amiss this morning - according to FR24 operated MAN-NCL followed by NCL-MAN-NCL. Flight to EWR is delayed by 3 hours.

Another destination in Greece on sale today - Santorini - Jet2 really going for it in Greece next year. Looks like Birmingham, Manchester and Stansted.

Another Captains Only airfield?
Q - if Jet2 haven't flown there before, how do they train their Captains to land there?
Just asking.

Mooncrest 2nd Dec 2019 16:37

Use a suitably-programmed flight simulator. Jet2 now has five.

Just asking.

It's not captains only in Jet2's route manual, just cat B (requires self briefing) due to lack of radar, so shouldn't be any issue.

However, to answer the question, all AOC holders I have worked for have had some form of alleviation approved by the authority in the case of a first visit to an airfield requiring training for the crew, generally along the lines of restricted to training captains only and sometimes with more restrictive landing minima to be applied. Obviously if it's cat C and needs simulator training it can get a bit more complicated.

Yet they have dropped NCL to Corfu to one per week next summer season, they've provided 2 a week for the last few years. Hugely popular destination and a strange decision, especailly when the collapse of TCX has meant this route has already lost 3 a week.

NCL

i believe ncl program is being worked on there maybe more news to come yet find out more by the end of this month

interesting, thanks for the heads up will keep an eye out.

Jamesair 2nd Dec 2019 17:08

NCL - Corfu.....are you sure about that. A quick look at the timetable shows it has been re-instated to 2 x weekly with flights on Mon and Thurs.

That must have literally happened in the last few hours - I was just discussing this on another forum last night. Good spot, thanks!

Prices are a bit steep - they're all cashing in on the TXC loss. One week is £600 return on this route when I looked with TUI, flight only.

TUIís flight only prices are notoriously expensive Ė they donít really try to compete on these as they want to encourage package bookings.

Lisbon - New Route
 
LIS has been added to the booking engine from MAN and BHX.

MAN-LIS - 2x weekly Thu & Sun from beginning of April to end of October
BHX-LIS - 2x weekly Mon & Fri from beginning of April to end of June. It then stops for peak summer before restarting mid-Sep until the end of October

I expected others to increase their prices after the demise of Thomas Cook. It could be argued that some routes have been artificially cheap for some time due to supply exceeding demand.

The rumour goes that it didn't have enough ULD's (Unit Load Devices) so it had to pop back to Manchester to get them. Don't tell Greta.

How ridiculous - can they not just bulk load any bags over the ULD quota they already had?

Iím assuming they couldnít or they would have given the EU261 claims theyíll now be getting for arriving late is going to cost them a small fortune.

SealinkBF 4th Dec 2019 21:29

A travel agent in Dorset told me Jet2 are planning a programme from Exeter. Could be gossip, and I think too late for Summer 2020.

Probably summer 2021. It'll be interesting to see if because of Bristols cap they end up operating from EXT, BRS and CWL in the South West of Britain like TUI does.

rog747 5th Dec 2019 06:41

No word from the Dorset locals down 'ere....

Both EXT and BOH might have been logical advances for Jet2 but TUI have gone for some expansion at both these airports with almost 2 a/c now based for next Summer...

Jet2 is the darling of the North (and STN seems to like them too)

Flitefone 5th Dec 2019 08:19

There are very few options for further Jet2 expansion south of BHX, either lack of peak season slots, lack of aircraft parking, insufficient runway length, passenger caps, movement caps and night restrictions all limit the available summer programme new airport choices to EXT, CWL, BOH.

If current or pending planning applications are approved at LTN, STN, BRS, LGW and SOU, things might change, but none of these, if approved (far from certain), are likely to offer suitable new capacity in short order.

Meanwhile the established IT market is being increasingly pushed to long haul at LGW, the exception being the new EZY activity, which has yet to prove its worth.

There have been rumours of a BOH Jet2 base of 4-6 aircraft for some time.

Lastly Jet2 have recently purchased the TC slots at STN, BHX, and MAN. But interestingly not BRS, where EZY was successful. In my view that makes CWL, BOH, EXT more likely, my betting has always been BOH will be next and will be in 2021

Another two B737-800s acquired by Jet2 going by Jethro's

G-DRTL - ex Jet Airways VT-JFJ (Age 6.6 Years)

Hopefully in better nick that G-DRTI which I think turned out be a bit of a Shed, or knowing that already got them at a very good price. Being Yorkshire based I should think the latter goes without saying. Smile.

That's good news - both are relatively young (by Jet2 standards anyway) and a quick Google search confirms they have the Sky Interior.

Jet2.com and Jet2holidays has taken on more than 120 former Thomas Cook staff.

The appointments include more than 50 pilots, 20 engineers, and almost 40 cabin crew members, who have accepted offers of training and after successful completion will join the company in time for summer 2020.

Thomas Cook Group, including the UK tour operator and airline, collapsed into liquidation in September.

Following the collapse, Jet2 has held a series of roadshows designed specifically for ex-Thomas Cook colleagues in Manchester, Peterborough, Birmingham Airport and London Stansted Airport, as well as overseas.

The company said it could employ a further 50 pilots by the end of February 2020, taking the total number of ex-Thomas Cook recruited pilots to more than 100.

Alongside more than 20 engineers from Thomas Cook who have accepted offers to join the company, there are plans to fill a further 50 engineering posts.

Almost 40 cabin crew from Thomas Cook have also been offered training at Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, with the largest influx being at Manchester Airport where 20 cabin crew have received offers. There are also further candidates being offered places on the training scheme

Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, said: "With an ever-growing programme, with new destinations and more aircraft being added to our fleet, it is a very exciting time for Jet2.com and Jet2holidays. We expect to recruit even more ex-Thomas Cook employees and look forward to welcoming them in the near future, as our company continues to grow."

Jethros now reporting that the 7x A321ís will be a split of ex DE and TCX machines! D-ATCA D and E plus G-TCDP (also ex DE) plus three others. You would assume then that one would be G-TCDR with two more left to be identified.

They will be registered G-HLY*

Negative on G-TCDR. Yes, they'll be 2 x Condor machines only to start with.

G-TCDH A321 is with Air Transat at the minute as C-GTZX. Is this just for the winter and then the aircraft will go onto Jet2?
