SEN-JER route is very interesting...

Seems like they will be going head to head with FlyBE on this route. Interesting to see how they will respond.

That's what I thought. I reckon the EZY route will kill the BE route off. 4 x weekly (I'm assuiming all-year round?) vs. 1 x weekly in the Summer?! EZY are bound to be cheaper too. Shame really - I thought BE may have set up a small base at SEN to various UK & European destinations but it seems like EZY may be taking over!

Any new route to JER is welcome, but I would have hoped for something else, particularly MAN-JER; I know it's close to LPL, but with WW having pulled off the route, BE will have it to itself ... and will be in fleecing mode. Likewise, BRS, with the closure of Air Southwest.

I fly to JER once or twice yearly to see my Granny, and I usually try to fly from and to various airports. For example, this summer I flew EMA-JER-EMA and LPL-JER-MAN. So, I foresee SEN-JER!
