This is great news for Jet2, but I'll be curious to see how things go over this winter season once the real LBA bad weather kicks in !!!.

Doesn't seem that much of a triumph when they only operate two services a day.

Considering the weather we have had up in the North this evening, time-keeping will be stretched to the limit in the morning.
Why drive when you can fly?

Trident2e,

Yes, they only operate two services a day to AMS, but they also only have a small fleet and the fleet does keep busy on other flights in between the AMS services (with the everyday risk of creating knock-on delays for later flights).

Large fleet/higher frequency = more aircraft to turn to when one goes tech or gets delayed.

Small fleet/lower frequency = fewer flights risking getting delayed but bigger impact if an aircraft goes tech or gets delayed.

Its all swings and roundabouts so the fact that they serve AMS twice a day should not detract from the award AMS has given them.
