I see. Oh well, i did have hopes then we may get a second a320 or even a B757 based here too.empire said:It is on the based TCX LBA unit. Heraklion has been dropped from the based TCX unit with Thomas Cook taking an allocation on Jet2's scheduled service
Real shame regarding spanish airlines yes. We lost Futura and spanair this summer, now air europa seems to be leaving us. Ive always wondered why iberia never operated to LBA, i mean we have no one offering a MAD route at present? Thats just for starters...White Heather said:I don't know the answer to that, but this does seem to mean the loss of the two Air Europa flights, so another reduction in movements overall, and the last of our flights operated by Spanish airlines has gone - for now at least. I think that is a real shame and it is nice to see some variety arising from the Spanish airlines coming in. However, as we said before, it does seem to be a good move for Jet2 and it is also enabling Thomas Cook to expand their horizons out of LBA.
So how often are we likely to see TCX bringing the 757 in from GLA? Is it a once weekly thing or more regular. Was definately good to see that type in TCX colours today!White Heather said:Last year, and in previous years, we did have a regular Reus flight operated by the based A320. This is the first summer recently that we don't have Reus as a regular operation. Initially we didn't have it at all, but they added it back for the summer holidays using the Glasgow based 757.
