Shame they never put a base in at Bournemouth. With Channel Express now gone BOU won't be the same. Good news for NCL and nice to see jet2.com expanding.

What's with the weird timings? From the times given it looks like an aircraft is going to be based at TFS. Looks like the aircraft will do BLK on days 1 and 5, and NCL on days 2 and 6, which leaves 3 days with no flights, so perhaps a 3 times weekly service to MAN to fill in the gap?

I dount we'll see LS serving TFS from MAN. There is ZB and BA already on that route, and BA do a double daily some days.

I'd like to see LS start a MAN - PFO or LCA.

EDI next maybe? It currently has no scheduled services to TFS, Jet2 should get in there before Flyglobespan, who already have slots for this summer though, so they might be too late!

Could well be. At the rate flyglobespan are going they will announced the route and drop it a week later! Jet2 would be a much better option!

This is excellent news for NCL. Only the other day, I had a suspision that Jet2 would start up a route to TFS from NCL.
