Stayed at 7000 for 100m before returning.

I thought the 757 could land with MTO. ?

However would it need a check?

Looks like G-LSAG is still in TFS.

Yes, G-GDFE has been retired to Kemble. G-CELY's retirement is scheduled for next May.

definitely no Dreamliners coming to Jet2.

Definitely seen on one of the threads someone getting a leased Dreamliner from someone (Bangladesh is ringing a bell). Obviously made the assumption it was LS!

Your not confusing this with Bangladesh starting their own service in January are you?

Jet2 are to open a 3rd non UK base at Tenerife South
This is old news, it was announced quite a while ago. It is only for the winter only with 1 B737-800 on standby.

G-DRTF in place now.


in English

The president of the Cabildo de Tenerife, Pedro Martín, has announced that Jet2 has opened on November 5, an air base at the Tenerife South airport, which has welcomed the agreement reached with the company, which will be a guarantee for the Island connectivity and job creation '.

'After the Thomas Cook crisis and the loss of the Ryanair base at the Reina Sofía airport, we have worked with two objectives: increasing connectivity, in the first place, and installing a new base that would replace the loss we had, in the second place. Both goals have been achieved, ’he said.

The president has said that the company's decision ‘confirms that Tenerife is an attractive destination, and that we did not have a problem of competitiveness, but of connectivity’.

For this reason, it has valued the solidity of Jet2, 'which not only has increased its places by 41% this winter, compared to the past, but also plans to do the same for the summer of next year', in one of the markets most affected by the bankruptcy of Thomas Cook: the United Kingdom. ”

Co-marketing agreement

Tenerife arrived at the World Travel Market with the aim of strengthening connectivity with the island and promoting the destination. To this end, Turismo de Tenerife and Jet2 have signed on Monday, at the World Travel Market in London, a collaboration agreement to carry out co-branding campaigns in the British market, which have an impact on the improvement of connectivity between the United Kingdom and the island.

The president of the Island Council has stressed that ‘this agreement will also allow us to attract more tourists to the island. They will realize that they have their perfect destination in Tenerife, ”said Martin, who explained that the campaign will define advertising spaces and formats of different kinds.

Can anybody quash a couple of rumours that I've read on PPRuNe and Facebook swirling regarding Jet2?

I'm 99% sure these are unlikely to come off, however I have been wrong before.

Jet2 to move into long haul market, over and above some seasonal flights to EWR?
More A330's to be acquired and based to STN & LBA?

azz767 7th Nov 2019 13:54

Definitely not A330 to LBA, it can't take them AFAIK

Flying Hi 7th Nov 2019 13:56

Maybe half the answer in post 1891 - the Air Tanker A330's dont operate out of LBA. Doesn't say 'can't' though,it says 'doesn't'.

Me personally would like to see mid-haul to Cape Verde rather long haul to Florida.

Edit - thanks for update info azz767.

BHX5DME 7th Nov 2019 14:02

Long Haul
 
More A330's to be acquired and based to STN & LBA?[/QUOTE] - NO (definetly not LBA)

Jet2 to move into long haul market, over and above some seasonal flights to EWR? - NO (well not yet)

Be a good chap 7th Nov 2019 14:33

Thanks BHX

Departed TFS 15.48 with LS918 to MAN.

Showing on FR24

I want to clarify a few points for people, as there seems to be a lot of misguided rumours here

"Jet2 to move into long haul market,"
NO - and will not happen for the foreseeable future. Any rumours on this are no more than wishful thinking in response to TUI, Thomas Cook and others

"over and above some seasonal flights to EWR".
This is the only exception as it has been a popular programme for years.

"More A330's to be acquired".
for S20, there will be 3, all LEASED, not owned, from Air Tanker (GK/GL/GM). All are planned for MAN only, So none going to BHX/STN/LBA

there are some A321's planned to be added to the fleet (A321 vs A330, two different aircraft types, but a hell of a difference between them. Could be where some people are getting confused)

Just because Jet2 have the aircraft available to operate long haul, doesn't mean they will. They will instead focus on short/ med haul and grow their existing programme. How else will they offer the capacity to the likes of the Canaries, Turkey and Spain?

it’s a standby aircraft that will be based their for the winter. Much like the one in ALC that is suppose to be there all year round. This has now moved to TFS for the winter.
Makes sense considering the amount of flights to the canaries there is and then the UK standby’s can cover mainland Europe.

Does this mean there is always a crew based at TFS purely for standby purposes? Or is it solely the aircraft in case of tech issues? If that's the case, it could be tight for crew hours at times.

TUI also base an aircraft at TFS for the winter season but this is utilised everyday on flights.

there’s going to be an Airport Standby crew on duty every day. Crew have been shipped out from the U.K. and ALC, a very easy gig if you ask me
