When I asked LBA management regarding parking stands at LBA and capacity, they stated that they had plans to completely re-mark the existing apron/stands and this could create room for additional aircraft (they didn't say how many). However, they did acknowledge that more stands would be required soon and of course phase 3 of the recently announced infrastructure plan is to build them, in around 2 years time. So for a short term fix, re-marking may work. I thought that in the past we had up to 24 aircraft based at LBA (in the days of Monarch) so on that basis they should just about squeeze them in next summer. One thing is certain - knowing these guys there is no way they would do any deal to take in more based aircraft without being certain they have somewhere to park them.
