Good point but is it included when it's a non-EU registered aircraft?
absolutely covered. any flight within the EU or departing from the EU to a destination outside the EU is covered regardless of where the airline is registered. compensation may or may not be payable depending on length of delay in to the destination for the passenger and the reason - some things are exempted such as weather and ATC restrictions. duty of care always applies, so food and drink and overnight accommodation.

the registration country of the aircraft itself is irrelevant - it would be covered even if the operating carrier was a non EU carrier so even if it were being flown as a Sunwing prime flight it would be covered. in this case it is being flown as a TUI flight anyway so an EU carrier. another example is BA at the moment are using QR A330 with QR crew for some of their flights due to the 787 availability issues. these are treated as BA flights and therefore covered as an EU carrier. from the regulation

"the obligations that it creates should rest with the operating air carrier who performs or intends to perform a flight, whether with owned aircraft, under dry or wet lease, or on any other basis."

nonEU airline operated flights departing from outside the EU with a destination in the EU are not covered, so an AA flight from PHL-MAN is not covered by EC261. an EU carrier operating the same route would be covered.

Well to be fair to TUi, it appears they are going to position another aircraft in to operate the delayed Mahon flight today as it is showing on the departures board as due out around 1945, 1 hour 20 minutes before the Sunwing is due back from Corfu.

TUi have dropped the weekly Tuesday afternoon Dalaman service for next Summer 2019.
The LBA based aircraft on Tuesday will revert to operating a Palma w-leg to another UK airport.
They could serve a Greek destination or somewhere more exotic than Palma, but it's back to Palma the good old Tommy default button.

We were told that Turkey was now really going places and we saw a considerable increase in flights this year. Jet2 next year are still committed to Turkey and have introduced Izmir too, but both Thomas Cook and TUi have now reduced their offering in Turkey for summer 2019 - the former by more than half. So has the Turkish bubble burst or are Thomas Cook and TUi losing the battle to Jet2 out of LBA?

Oh no we've lost another one! TUI have now removed the planned Thursday Palma-Majorca rotation for next summer 2019 which was originally planned to be operated by Albastar.

Meanwhile the based aircraft will now no longer operate a w-leg on Mondays. Instead it will do a Ibiza rotation then in the afternoon do the Corfu service (Instead of the Late night departure that its operated over past 2 years)

Do we have two Neos flights then next year? LBA management have stated that the Innsbruck flights on Saturday are to be operated by Neos 737s too.

They won't heavily commit at LBA while they have a DSA base - or at least a base of the current size, as despite the fact LBA and DSA have different catchment areas, as far as TUi are concerned, any expansion at LBA would be likely to impact on DSA, and for now, they are committed to that airport. Frankly, I would rather have what we have (a single based aircraft) than nothing. Lets just see what happens after the LBA terminal developments are completed, and we have more stands, and around that time, the DSA contract may be up for renewal too. As I have said before, with TUi in the UK based at Luton, an airport now under the same ownership as LBA, our owners, AMP Capital, are possibly in a better position to negotiate a deal with TUi than their predecessors were.

Nope Neos are only down showing to operate the weekly Verona charter flight for TUI on Saturdays. Ingham's Holidays are still showing Flybe operating the weekly Innsbruck flight on Saturdays...

Flight details as follows.
NOS6832 = VRN 10:50 - LBA 12:20 / NOS6833 = LBA 13:10 - VRN 16:30 (Ops May 11th to September 21st 2019)
BEE9226 = INN 10:30 - LBA 11:35 / BEE9225 = LBA 12:25 - INN 15:30 (Ops June 8th to September 21st 2019)

I note that Neos, Nouvelair and the Turkish Airline, Freebird, are all now listed as LBA airline partners on the LBA website. The use of a Neos 737 on the Innsbruck route was quite definite and confirmed in the Consultative Meeting minutes, so I guess we will have to wait and see what turns up.
