Where Are Jet2's Aircraft Coming From?

Fri Dec 03, 2004 6:25 pm

Can I just ask (because I have searched and can't find an answer) where Jet2 are getting the aircraft for the extra services, especially ex BFS and MAN? I remember reading they have low aircraft utilisation allowing for punctuality and stuff, but if the fleet is limited (like WW) are delays going to cause havoc?

I figured that, but surely Channel Express need their own aircraft. No?

Yeah, but they've got a lot, they lease them out to globespan, jet2 and a few others. Channex will get a sum of money for them so they don't need to operate them. globespan aircraft are fitted with cargo doors, so at night the seats are pulled out and cargo goes in, flown by Channex

I mentionned in my previous post the "Jet2" fleet.

They all come, of course from Channel Express...
But the question of this topic is : "Where are Jet2's aircraft coming from ? "

Jet2 is a simly trading name of Channel Express - they are the same company. Channel Express own 20 737s and lease another.

It really is as simple as that.
