I think the 4 Sunwing B738's will be based at ABZ, BFS, NWI and maybe BHX?
Or possibly CWL, pre pandemic i believe CWL was supposed to get a Sunwing 737 but ended up with a different company ASL i believe.

Very many thanks Matt995 for that research - it obviously must have taken you some time, unless you have insider information!

My understanding is that Bristol will have 6 based this summer - 5 737 and 1 787 unless there’s been a cull that I’m not aware of

I think the 4 Sunwing B738's will be based at ABZ, BFS, NWI and maybe BHX?

The A320's and A321's presumably will be leased from Smartlynx

2 B737 Max's dont yet appeared to be allocated anywhere, maybe spare aircraft, or allocate to another TUI airline?
Thanks for this. Don’t think it’s quite correct though.

GLA, for instance definitely has at least 2 737s based (presumably both MAXs) - on a Saturday there are early departures to IBZ and REU on TUI Airways.

The LGW 787 count is also surprisingly low, especially as the 767s are at MAN meaning LGW normally gets more 787s. I suppose the 787s do move around a lot throughout the week though so may just be Saturdays that are so low. You do have a LGW-MLB down as a 321 so presumably that’s actually a 787, meaning one more 787 and one fewer 321?

I also find it strange that they have so many MAXs at LGW and so few at MAN/NCL/DSA but they must have their reasons.

Yes

According to the above list all five 737s at BRS are MAX8s.

NCL is 3x 738 and 1x 7M8. It also see's a B787 3 to 4 times a week.

Summer schedule shows number of aircraft required :- 7 A320s, 1 A321, 37 B738s, 18 B7M8s, 2 B76W's, 8 B788's, 5 B789's, total aircraft required 78.

That's leaves 1 spare B738, and 1 spare B789 (SE-RFZ) as standby aircraft.

Still a question mark over the A321 SmartLynx lease, but TUI website is still showing it's seating plan on some Manchester flights.

new 737 Max G-TUMP due to be delivered to Gatwick later today, bring their Max fleet up to 18 aircraft, which is the number required for the summer schedule.

G-TUIF B788 still on maintenance at Luton, not flown since the 18th May
G-TAWO B738 hasn't flown since 31st May, currently at Prestwick being worked on?
G-TAWY B738 on maintenance at NWI since 7th June.

No wonder TUI are having to sub charter aircraft!
