Last October, EZY made a big announcement of a new base in LIS, which they said would open this year, but half way through 2011, and we haven't heard anything.

Is it still going ahead? Have they changed their minds?

Things are running a bit behind due to the new terminal being behind schedule. (I think). It was mentioned recently in an e-mail and I think it said that the base would open mid winter season or next Spring. I can't remember now. There still hasn't yet been any decision yet as to whether it will be a crew base or not.

There is no new terminal being built at LIS....so we may be in for a very long wait!

I said, I don't fully recall. Basically, EZY will be in a terminal to themselves and they're not in a position to have this yet.

Last I heard was that they wanted to move into Terminal 2, which is currently a Domestic Departures only terminal (all domestic arrivals are bussed to the main terminal, and all international flights are handled out of the main terminal as well). I can definitely see them fitting into T2, as it's a modular terminal (picture a large shed) and feels very low-cost. I'm guessing the charges for using that terminal will be lower than using the main.

Latest rumour I've been hearing on Galley FM is that its not going to be a crewed base and we (LGW) will be doing some flights out of there. If true, I wonder if it will be like the set up we do out of BCN with a couple of crews night stopping and doing some of the flights?

Maybe. You guys get all the nightstops. Obviously, nightstops aren't popular universally mind.

I'm afraid there must be some confusion here. That's not even possible at LIS. LIS is not building a new terminal.

You're correct on the description but T2 costs no less than T1. T2 was built as a stop gap terminal until the new airport is built. AFAIK there are no plans to make T2 any more than what it is today. I wouldn't even call it a terminal. It's really just a holding are for passengers.

MAD crews already nightstop in LIS in order to operate the LIS-FNC rotations.

We know Lisbonbear. We're easy crew.
Airbazar, it's hard to remember what was said but EZY will have a terminal to itself.

When T2 was built, the possibility of converting it to a low-cost terminal was considered. As such, they included a lower floor (which AFAIK is now empty), suitable to handle arrivals. One of the possibilities that are now being rumoured is precisely that of T2 becoming a low-cost dedicated terminal, which would explain EZY's statements.

I believe that they did similar here at MXP. Quite successfully on my opinion.

How many daily departures do we have from LGW? I've got 4 return trips to FAO next month alone....I bet i'll end up doing loads of night stops there if this plan comes into fruition!

No, some people go mad for them, others can't stand them. Im really not fussed either way, they're just hassle, espically on min rest.

Gutted the AGP night stops aren't back this summer though.

If U2 sets a base in LIS, would that mean that U2 might be able to fly LIS-SID/RAI someday?

Quite possibly. Like many different routes and destinations, they have been looked in to by Easyjet from the UK.

I actually think their priority would be starting flights from LIS/OPO to The Azores and break the TP / S4 monopoly.
TER & PDL

U2 started LIS-FNC and now S4 has droped the route for the winter season.
