Interesting. Also, another destination (Malaga) will be announced from Dortmund tomorrow.

Would be interesting if they were to convert to A319s, what would happen to their fleet of 73Gs?

I know they have 73G bases at LTN and BRS, but with the amount of them they have I imagine it would be difficult using them all up, considering LPL is one of their main bases.

Cheers,
Noel

Perhaps they could sell them to TUI?? They seem to be short on small midrange aircraft.

Don't forget BY had 3 737-800s which all went to BY Sweden IIRC. There obviously isn't that much of a market for smaller aircraft for them amongst the UK market, which I find surprising as Excel and Astraeus seem to be doing fine with theirs.

Maybe they just want commonality with the 757 and 767?

If it is A319 conversion I'd hardly see it as a surprise, they are doing at every other base, so LPL was bound to happen eventually as 737s go off lease. Would be nice to see them announce new flights though!

What would any new possible routes be out of LPL? There haven't been new routes from EZY for a couple of years now.

I thought BRS was slowly being turned into a 319 base?

737-300's:

G-THOI is ex G-OFRA, two more are planned from easyJet when their lease has expired

But it seems WW had the better of TOM, by getting a few:
G-TOYD ex G-EZYT
G-TOYF ex G-IGOO
G-TOYG ex G-IGOJ
G-TOYH ex G-IGOY

I think the leases on the 737-700's have a fair bit to go yet. Be good if LPL got the A319's in, sure LGW can spare a few.

Is that in direct competition with Wizzair or FR?

Little bit of friendly advice EZY Airbus - best not to divulge internal information on the Web so blatently. You can be sacked for this. From reading your prior posts and your respect rating, we trust your source, so its not necessary to do a screen shot from your Intranet.

Well i didnt expect MRS to be a new route from LPL. Nonetheless, still very welcome news. Im surprised its taken them this long to operate to FAO. I would have thought this would have operated years ago. Nice to see the airbus coming up here as well. Hopefully i should starting filling up my log a bit more now!

I wonder if EZY are jumping on LPL-MRS before Ryanair?

Perhaps. Don't FR only operate to MRS from PIK though? Perhaps they are planning on expanding services to MRS in the future? Kinda surprised they don't run STN-MRS. They usually open up a new destination from STN 1st before anywhere else.

Yes it is currently in the process. You'll still find a lot of 73Gs down there but now there are at least 2 A319s currently based at BRS, one of which I believe is G-EZII (it's certainly been operating a lot of the flights there).

Here's a great way to get live airport movement info.

MRS is rumoured to become a base, so maybe they now first try to set up a few routes and then make a final decision based on the routes' success.

Is MRS where they are building a new terminal specifically for low cost airlines? If so that would make sense.

Yes, as far as i know they are building a low cost terminal there.
Same happened in GVA if i am not mistaken and also in BSL where airlines have the choice between an older building and a newer one.

Ryanair announced MRS as well just recently so the incentives seem to work.

Cool, well perhaps MRS is going to be on the up in the coming years then. I noticed that FR are also operating DUB-MRS as well. Anyway, good news for LPL!

Ryanair doesn't fly to KRK from LPL and Wizzair flies to KTW. KTW isn't that far away from KRK so there will be some indirect competition I imagine.
