Excellent news!

If some could look beyond "bums on seats" and passenger numbers they'd realise this is the business segment where EMA can challenge and thrive.

Apologies for the spotterish question: Are there any good spots at EMA for viewing? I am heading down the M1 next Friday and wouldn't mind popping in, but I understand that the Aeropark is closed on Fridays
TIA

This isn't really the spotter's thread but you might want to try out Diseworth Road nr. Castle Donnington. But if it's anytime between around 9:30 - 11:30am I wouldn't waste your time as you'll barely see anything worth seeing.

Thanks for the info, FRatSTN. I'll stick Diseworth Road in the satnav.
Much appreciated

DE74 2PR will get you close to The Nags Head, at the end of Diseworth Lane.

Diseworth Lane does not lead to Diseworth, though, so beware. Someone stuck a runway across it circa 1969. Sadly, I'm old enough to remember when it did lead to Diseworth!

"The Airport Trail" will take you from the top of Diseworth Lane, by the crash gate, along the northern perimeter fence if you fancy a stroll.

Is that the one that heads to the fire training ground?
If so a nice afternoon stroll and dog walk ( if you have one that is )

I'd expect both good load factor and yields on the Napoli flights.

Alot of ac holding north and south of the field tonight along with what appears to have been a missed approach and divert up the road to CC.

The operational advice notice in play states the runway should be open at 8pm. Wonder what if any financial contractual penalties might be in play for delays?

Runway

Local Variation

I think the runway might have been handed back and nobody you can bill for Fog and a 300 RVR.

I suppose some will moan that CAT 3 is not available but the NOTAM is showing CAT 1 during the period of the runway works with a minimum 450M.

Hi Pete,

Thanks for that. Hadn't considered the wx. Not too bad where I am. Must be the Markfield effect

Current Metar concurs with your response.

Eastern EMA-ABZ, originally taken off sale just for the period of the runway closure, now seems to have disappeared completely from their res system. Not coming back?

EMA-ABZ

When it is not in the booking engine, the route map or the destinations page you could almost say you don't get much more conclusive.

I wonder if Flybe could try it once a day or does it really need an earning morning and late evening departure? I would say a double daily Dash 8 would be overkill but maybe once a day could work?
