Thomas Cook flight slots

Hi

Anyone know what has/will happen to TC flights slots to Orlando?

I'm assuming someone will pick them up, but if its Virgin then there wont be any competition for Manchester especially so expect flight prices to rocket?

Last I read is that KPMG had received bids for the slots, but nothing confirmed yet on who has been successful.. I believe this will be announced this month.

However they don't necessarily have to keep it on the same route either.. so as an example Easyjet could buy their LGW slots but use them for short-haul. It just means more flights daily at different times.

However if a short-haul carrier buys the Manchester slots, it could mean Virgin prices will hike up a fair amount.

We can only wait and see!

Jet2 has purchased the Manchester/Birmingham/Stanstead slots.

Easyjet has purchased the Gatwick/Bristol slots.

Doesn't mean that they will be going to Orlando, the slots can be used as the airline so wish.

Just need someone to fill the gap

Just because an airline buys slots from TC it doesnt mean they will fly to Orlando , the slots allow them to fly anywhere they wNt. I read that easy jet bought a lot of the gatwick ones and theres no way they will fly to Orlando
