I assume there must be different regulations for take-off and landing??

Fog and landings...

I think you will find that the ILS facilities at Newcastle are as good as at any major airport in the world. The problem is with the airlines/aircraft/crew not the airport facilities?

Minimum RVR for take off is 125m (assuming crew trained).

I remember a NCL-BRS flight a few years ago. Every other flight seemed to be landing and taking off ok but ours diverted to Cardiff. Many people missed connections.

The flight from Cardiff has just diverted.
The Southampton flight is in the hold.

Three factors affect Cat III minima for any individual flight:

1. The technical capability of the equipment installed in the aircraft
2. The operating minima set by the aircraft operator, this may vary by aircraft type and can be more stringent than 1 above (i.e. they deliberately give themselves a safety net above the technical minima)
3. The training certification level of the operating crew - if they ain't both Cat III trained they ain't Cat III landing

AviationNE have a read of Itchy Cracks post. The ILS is CAT III. In fact I did one yesterday and the day before with a DH of 50' and 200m RVR.

I was looking at this site.

Newcastle Airport Webcam

Is this really NCL and what is it with the never ending smoke?

Looking at the web address of the webcam and the fact the time seems to be an hour ahead I'd say it's probably Newcastle Airport, South Africa! Pretty certain it's not NCL.

Looks like they all made it into NCL last night despite weather. Only on Eastern service didnt. (also Easyjet from BCN cancelled for other reasons I hear)

I believe BCN was canx as crew out of hours due to previously delayed BFS. Ezy not having a good time of it lately, lots of delays and a tech 320 over the weekend.
Lots of 32S on DUS of late too, interesting to see how the pax figures look after this.

BH Air 5517 flight from Bourgas today, is again operated with A330-200 reg LZ-AWA due / expected to arrive NCL at 16:58. Wonder if this is to be a regular A330 flight and if passenger numbers are booked to reflect.

Think this is a UK wide thing at the moment, perhaps having some A320 issues. LZ-AWA has been into CWL and BRS in recent days too.

Could be interesting if they rescheduled them to A330 flights and opened them up to A330 capacity, would be interesting to know if they could fill them.

I was disappointed to find out that Balkans only sell 7 night packages
