Is this a charter, or a new route?

Almost certainly a charter.

Jet2 market themselves as "the north's low cost airline" so I imagine any routes from STN are unlikely!
Next flights: LGW-LBA-LGW, LHR-SIN-SYD, SYD-BKK-LHR, LGW-GRO, GRO-CIA, CIA-MAD, MAD-LGW

Its probably a Channel Express charter. Channel Express became a part of Jet2, but they still fly various charter and cargo flights.

Jet2 are actually owned by Channex, it was actually Channel Express that set up Jet2 in the first place.

Jet2 is now the name of Jet2.com and Channel Express. Channel Express no longer exists as a trading name.

Yes but then Channel Express were absorbed into the Jet2.com name. And actually, they are owned by the Dart Group.

If that was the case it would operate under AEU code and callsign, not LS2004.

This would most likely be a fishing charter operated on behalf of Astraeus.

http://www.roxtons.com/cgi-bin/location/4

"A great asset to the Varzuga operation has been the addition of our direct private charter flight from London to Murmansk every Friday. This greatly improves travel arrangements, allowing for more time to be spent on the river fishing whilst also alleviating concerns over lost luggage or fishing equipment."

Certainly AEU have operated flights to Murmansk in the past.

Looks like LS now have the contract.

Do LS base a dedicated 737 for their passenger charters from STN or use the 737 based for Royal Mail flights?
