Mon Jan 26, 2004 7:30 pm

When offically does the summer season begin in the UK? 28 March until 31 October?

Probably the date range you mentioned first. easyJet use the end of March as the start of the Summer Schedules, which end during the last week in October.

Aaaah, thanks. Didn't think I misheard it. You wouldn't know the exact date in March and the precise date in October, would you?

March and April and the latter half of October are very quiet months on the charter scene and will only be a couple of charter flights a day from UK regional airports.

The charter scene is usually dominated from from LGW and MAN during this time and won't pick at other airports like BHX and LTN until May.

For airline schedules, the northern summer season starts after the last weekend in March to the last weekend in October
