ncleflights - if one were to draw 2 straight lines, one from Newcastle to Lancaster, and another going east-west about 10 miles south of Edinburgh / Glasgow, we find a large area of land with a relatively low population density. Yes, the residents of Berwick or Carlisle might switch from choosing NCL / MAN to instead using EDI / GLA respectively, but I am not yet convinced many of those living in Newcastle, Lancashire or Scotland's central belt would realistically consider crossing the border and making a long land journey to an airport for a flight, either now or in the future.

Do you happen to know if there is any publicly available data showing how many people currently make these big land journeys to reach a different airport ?
