    Jet2 have announced a new winter route for the skiing fraternity, from LBA to Turin according to an article in the YEP.

    Yeap thats correct mate.
    Jet2's new Leeds/Bradford - Turin service is primary aimed at the ski market so its only operating once weekly using Boeing 737-300 equipment every Saturday commencing from December 22nd, 2018 running until April 13th, 2019.

    LS393 = LBA 06:30 - TRN 09:45 / LS394 = TRN 10:30 - LBA 11:45

    I see that Jet2 are taking more space at The Mint in Holbeck. Does that mean that they can get shut of those ugly red prefabs at LBA yet to make space for some much needed additional apron space?? (can I have my tin hat back please Finger66?)

    Of course Bigman. That is until I can think of something else controversial to post lol! I agree with your hope that apron space can be created as a result of this though. Now, back to controversial thoughts whilst I lay on my sunbed - just need the sun to come back out!

    I must say that when I realised that those" red prefabs" where for Jet2 it occurred to me that they were taking up valuable space for a westerly extension of the Terminal/and or apron space. In fact all that area behind is also relatively flat and would provide good extra apron space if only the existing buildings could be relocated.

    Good area for a National Express Coach Station to connect Lba to Scotland and other regions of the Uk.

    I think Jet2 would happily take up the space with aircraft rather than prefabs if the space was there. And the extra space may just attract another carrier. Not saying it will, but it might! We certainly won't be attracting airlines currently, at least not any that want to base at LBA with the limited parking space we have

    What new weekly flight to Turin and 2x weekly to Krakrow, dose that really count?

    Or are you counting the extra 1x weekly services added for summer 2019 by Thomas Cook (Enfidha), Tui (Antalya, Dubrovnik & Verona,) Jet2 (Izmir, Crete-Chania & Bourgas)

    That's Unless you know something else which hasn't being announced yet?

    I am counting all of them LBASpotter. I am sure that in total they will add up to more passengers than we have lost on the Aberdeen route. The point I am making is that we are actually gaining more new routes than we are losing, so it isn't quite a gloomy as we think.

    The acquisition of all floors at The Mint was rumored some 3 months ago so it's good to see that has come to fruition.

    Alongside the "red huts" aka Low Fare Finder House, they have the long term hanger space on lease at LBA, all of The Mint in Leeds CC, a training center in Bradford & hanger at MAN and inside said hanger they have another administrative office!

    Surely Low Fare Finder House must be in it's swansong years now, I would imagine a term was in place for that plot of land and that will be up for negotiation - the airport will either want the space for its own needs or try bump up the lease. Imagine what you could do with all that space!!

    It would be sad to see Jet2 no longer with it's head office at LBA however, it's still very cool to have the UK's 2nd Largest leisure operator based at LBA along with its operational offices overlooking the runway! Perhaps they will take a unit near the Hawthorne to maintain some presence?

    As long as Jet2 continue to operate from LBA, which they will because they won't throw away what they have built up and know there is demand for, then I would be more than happy for any of their current office space at LBA to make way for further airport development, especially if this was to create apron space. Sentiment has to be over ruled by progress and logic. That all said, LBA don't want to be annoying Jet2 in any way as it wouldn't be where it is today without them.

    Is the rumoured new Business Park for land behind the Travelodge still a possibility and if so would Jet2 want
    new office space in this area. Granted, the runway and apron are a bit further away. What about the other businesses adjacent to the existing Low Fare House, are they cargo related?, do they need immediate access to the apron? or could they also be located in the new Business Park. If all that area was cleared it would open up a sizeable area for new aircraft parking spaces and/or new pier.

    I understand that all fights (whole fleet) operations and engineering is still organised at Low fare finder house. Plus its also home to Jet2 's LBA based crews, which includes the spare back ups.
    So if they do move elsewhere, I'm sure they will want to remain close to the airfield.

    It's a shame they can't just move them down to the East of the apron, or better still put a first floor on top of Hall B.
