Hi,

Wonder if STN will be their next UK destination?
Is there enough market to make it worthwhile?

Where else in the UK could they serve...?



from the Island with sun and great photo's.. Why not visit Lanzarote

I would love it if EK served STN....I think there is enough demand for it as well...at least a 5 x weekly A330 service would work in a 2-class configuration.


The next destinations I could see EK serve in the UK are Edinburgh and possibly Leeds and Bristol. There has been talk of EK adding a 3rd daily flight to MAN, but they could operate it from LBA instead. I think the runway is long enough, and it would be an alternative airport for people in the North to fly from. I bet a lot of the Pakistani community who live in and around Leeds/Bradford would use the service with onward connections to Pakistan from Dubai.

Bristol would serve the South-West UK market. The runway at Cardiff is longer but BRS is a better location.

I think STN would be a good idea for EK to serve the North London market

Dont see EDI in the short term because of GLA and NCL nearby

LBA can support the 767 without payload restrictions. Would An EK 330 be able to operate in the same way?

LBA might be a good spot for pax transferring onto India, Pakistan and leisure traffic to the far east and Oz but since there is a PIA service due to start from LBA to serve the Pakistani market and since MAN is only a short hop accross the pennines with much more choice of frequencies and airlines to choose from on these routes, would there be the demand from LBA?

Why not they fly to every regional airport in teh UK already. With their current service to LHR or LGW, STN would be a good addition.

Interesting, a thread about why there was a certain aircraft in Stansted has turned into a "where will EK serve next" thread after just 5 replies.

It seems to be some sort of charter, flying in under EK5029 and out as EK7030. All other EK flights to the UK appear to have operated as scheduled on that day.

It is a charter flight all the way from Oman. The Ruler of Oman booked this plane for his staff. They were on a delegate visit. There were 2 planes. A Royal plane and an EK Chartered plane. My girlfriend flew the staff from Muscat and then another crew took them to STN

Cheers
