Re: Blackpool Airport - Thread

It's good to see the airline showing further commitment to Blackpool airport. The airport must be profitable for them otherwise they would have pulled out long ago.

Re: Blackpool Airport - Thread

Someone on fruit suggests BJV (Mon), TFS (Tue) and DLM (Wed) all with a B757. Aircraft to be based 3 days a week, routes to change during winter to LPA, TFS, ACE on same days. To start on 9th July.

Just dont see any domestic routes to work, and the ones that would will be swallowed up by EZY anyway. Besides which it doesn't seem to fit in with Jet2's apparant growth model.

The aircraft would also be free to serve a similar number of routes from HUY (or somewhere similar) for the remaining days of the week :s_thumbsup though sounds like any announcement regarding SEN will be made towards the end of the week or perhaps next week.

Re: Blackpool Airport - Thread

Sorry I didn't make it clear, I was refering to the rumour of new flights from SEN in response to the previous comments..

As for B757 and BLK, I believe they do operate 757's out of BLK sometimes?

Re: Blackpool Airport - Thread

There is/was one based or positioned in until recently that operated the TFS etc.. Clearly the 738 can do that job now, but not sure if they have one at BLK.

Re: Blackpool Airport - Thread

Currently yes, but they have operated the 757 frequently from BLK in the paat, so it can be done.

[textarea]Blackpool to get summer France flights

Blackpool Airport is to get a new seasonal summer service to and from Albert Picardie Airport in northern France. The service will bring tourists into Lancashire as it gears up for an exciting year of iconic celebrations, including The Open Championship at Royal Lytham and St Anne’s Golf Club.

Flights will be available on selected dates from April to August 2012. In addition to inbound tourists, they will also take passengers from across Lancashire and the Lake District to Albert in the heart of the Somme region. As well as access to the beautiful bay of Somme, the new route provides a gateway to the capital and the delights of Disneyland Paris.

The flights are being operated by Danish Air Transport (DAT) on an ATR 72-200 aircraft that can hold up to 66 passengers. Fares are from £95 and bookings can be taken either by visiting DAT's website: www.dat-charter.worldticket.net, by calling Blackpool Airport's Flight Ops team on 01253 472 507 or by visiting the Airport Direct Travel Shop at www.airportdirecttravel.co.uk/blackpool/

Re: Blackpool Airport - Thread

That's an interesting catch for Blackpool.

An ATR72 is probably the most ideal aircraft to operate this route.

I hope the route well!

[textarea]Airport fails in Jet2 appeal bid

Blackpool Airport must continue serving budget airline Jet2.com’s early morning and evening flights.

The loss-making regional hub suffered a narrow defeat to Jet2 after airport bosses tried to ban flights before 7am and after 9pm.

In a case which laid bare bitter relations between Jet2 and the airport, the airline went to court after being told by airport bosses, who were desperate to cut costs, it would only accept flights between 7am and 9pm.

The dispute reached a head in October 2010 when two of the airline’s flights had to be diverted from Blackpool to Manchester at short notice, “causing considerable inconvenience to passengers and expense to Jet2”, London’s Appeal Court heard.

The High Court later ruled the airport had breached its obligation under a 15-year contract with the airline.

The airport, 95 per cent owned by construction giant, Balfour Beatty, took the decision to the Court of Appeal, insisting it had acted within its rights, but has had its challenge rejected by a majority of two judges to one.[/textarea]

Phil Meeson, Jet2 CEO, said the airline is committed to Blackpool Airport and will remain there.

Jet2 must make good money at Blackpool otherwise they could have used this as an excuse to get out of there.
