Looks like SAS starts up the flights again on 26 October. To me it seems like charter flights (for Danish windmill specialists for the Humber Gateway Wind Farm) where they sell off free seats. One has to be bonkers to buy tickets on these flights with a return ticket prices of around 500. If you drive the two hours across the Pennines to MAN you can get the same return flight to CPH for 90 with SAS.

The fares reflect the niche it was intended to serve, so would be interesting to know who was using the service until now given that the offshore wind projects in the area have yet to take off.. However, if we are talking about charters relating to offshore wind, then flights to Billund would be more likely.

Clearly though, KLM offer a far better product, and the increase on that route far outweighs the impact SAS had on the airports own passenger figures. I understand they intend to reintroduce a 4th daily service again at some point.

Flights now confirmed - Will be operated by Germania on behalf of Thomson, using the Norwich based aircraft (Presumed to be A319 but not confirmed). Flights operate early May to late October on Tuesday afternoons (Arrive HUY 14:15, Dep HUY 15:30).

Clearly fantastic news for the airport to have Thomson giving the airport another go, hopefully these will sell well, and we will see extra flights in the future!

Flights are to be operated by charter airline: Corendon Airlines, who are based in Antalya. They have a fleet of 10 aircraft, 9 B737-800 - seating 189 (of which 2 are on lease to PIA) & 1 B737-300 - seating 148 (which is to be retired in 2014).

Most likely, we will be seeing a B737-800 which would result in 1,512 extra seats, should all seats be sold!.

All good news for our little airport!.

Wonder if this would explain why they've reduced the frequency from DSA for next summer to Tenerife.

Good news as it looks like Eastern Airways are going to be operating a series of charter flights from Humberside Airport in May & June 2015 to Barcelona, Nice and Venice using the Embraer 145 aircraft.

Actually not a bad price, 300 each in flights, I tried to book with another airline flying from LBA with baggage and car parking, came out very slightly dearer. HUY is nearer so saving all round and I wont miss the roller coaster of a landing. Hope it works out for both parties.

HUY - Shocking!

Flew into HUY on a Friday a few weeks ago via AMS from CPH, the whole journey was fine until my return last Sunday to CPH.


I entered HUY, picked up my ticket from the very polite and helpful KLM service desk and then found myself unintentionally at the baggage x-ray machined manned by what I can only describe as the most unpleasant, most unhelpful woman I have ever had the pleasure to meet in airport security.


First impressions always count, said a cheery "hello" to which didn't even merit any facial expression let alone a reply, then onto the x-ray machine, no instructions or advised as to what to place in the plastic container. Removed suit jacket, laptop, belt, laptop, shoes, emptied pockets of anything into said container while been looked at and expression from said lady of indifference and unfriendly manner. She then begins to unload the container, sorting out things from one container into another without any regard for a persons personal property.


I'm lucky to of travelled the world and experienced security at most international airports but this was beyond any doubt the most unpleasant experience I've experienced and my own "local" regional airport.


I was not the only customer travelling through HUY on that day to notice this individual and her unfriendly manner.


Dismayed, shocked and to be quite frank shall not be using the airport again, wishing to support HUY has been clouded by this individual and if your reading this you should learn some customer service and at the very least some manners. Your representing a regional airport, I am a customer, I probably contribute to your salary by way of my ticket and taxes.


I don't care if you've worked 8 hours, got family problems etc, your one of the faces of the airport, if you don't enjoy your job please leave!

Thanks, Initial post edited.

Indeed the flights are for the Winter 16/17 season, commencing in November 2016. The flights are down to be operated by Thomson Airways, so presume this will be using B738 equipment.
