Only 3x Wizz Air aircraft are in storage at CWL now.
Another aircraft (A321 - G-WUKL) departed to STN this morning (for maintenance I presume), and then continued on to DSA (making it the second based aircraft there).

The 'like' is for the information, not the fact that the delay has been pushed back.

Another aircraft (A320 - G-WUKE) departed to LTN this afternoon leaving 2x A321s remaining (G-WUKC/J).
Both aircraft have completed circuits in the last couple of days having been sat in storage since early March.

Definitely surprised by that one!
Likewise! I didn't even think an A321 could land/take off at JER. I thought it was tight with a 737-800. I suppose it utilises the aircraft on routes where there might be decent demand, although i'm not sure this will be a long term route from either airport.

Nice to see Jersey back, I thought they had an A320 at DSA, as well as the A321, they may be using that. Great news though, I think Jersey will be popular this year.

It's an A321? that's even more of a surprise! I'm guessing it utilises the aircraft for them while dipping their toe in a new market!

According to the Twitter comments it's an A321. I can see it being an A320 though given the way bookings will be going over the rest of this summer.
Jersey's runway is about 60m longer than Skiathos. Skiathos can take A321's just not with a full fuel load to make it the 3hr flight. So in comparison to that, JER may just be OK for an A321.

I think BA used to send the 757 to Jersey. So i’d imagine it would be okay?

I assume that the Wizz Air technical people know what they are doing and are satisfied that the A321 and Jersey are compatible.

The declared take off distances available at Jersey are OK for an A321 ceo and neo but only with a much restricted payload. Obviously, the fuel requirement for a sector as short as CWL-JER will not be great and you'd assume that most passengers would not be taking lots of checked baggage. Therefore, they may be able to operate with a reasonable passenger load.

Only 1x Wizz Air aircraft is in storage at CWL now - could this be the aircraft that will be based at CWL when the base opens?

The second-to-last aircraft (A321 - G-WUKC) departed to Baku, Azerbaijan this afternoon leaving 1x A321 remaining (G-WUKJ).
