Has anyone noticed that on Wikipedia (Newcastle) it says ...Air France (CDG) operated by City Jet (ends 28th Oct)...operated by HOP (from (29th Oct).
Confirmed on Air France booking site as operated by Hop! Air France, Embraer 190 aircraft

CDG

Jamesair

Probably because CDG will be operated by HOP from winter 17/18!

It is all in the booking engine 3 daily except Saturday which appears to be 2.

A good result for Newcastle if this happens although not a great difference in the capacity.

Equates to an extra 100 seats per week, good news I think, a bit more boring and I think it'll be sad to see the RJ's go, as well as sad we won't be getting the SSJ's, but it brings us in line with the rest of Air France's UK operations and hopefully... Hopefully... Might result in lower prices?

Hopefully the extra daily flight to Southampton will mitigate decreases in domestic traffic in 2017

Looking healthy again finally!

Newcastle Airports Total Passenger volume for 2016 was 4,860,265 (4.8m) - maybe this is what Beatts is referring to?

Press release on the airport website:

Newcastle International Airport continues to fly high with confirmation that over 4.8m passengers travelled through in 2016. With an increase of 6% compared to 2015, over 250,000 more passengers used the airport last year, which has now seen six years of positive year on year growth.

August was the busiest month for the region’s biggest airport, with almost 600,000 passengers passing through the terminal, the highest number since 2007. The airport recorded its strongest December in over 10 years, with more than 300,000 passengers travelling in the final month of 2016.

The airport’s daily Emirates service to Dubai celebrated record numbers in August. The route, set to celebrate ten years of operation in 2017, carried 22,745 passengers in August from Newcastle and its Dubai hub.

Alicante was the favoured holiday destination for the North East travelling public, with 341,298 people travelling to the Costa Blanca....

....Nick Jones, Interim Chief Executive at Newcastle International Airport, said: “2016 was a fantastic year with some amazing achievements. We have seen a number of record breaking months at the airport and to have now seen six years of positive year on year growth is a great accomplishment. We have worked very hard to build a route network that offers a wide variety of choice to suit the needs of all our passengers. With even more choice available from Newcastle for a number of years, 2017 is set to be a special year for the airport as we expect to surpass 5 million passengers.”

I think the Airport has done a good job over the last few years - it was heading downhill towards East Midland style operations but it is now pretty well established - and has held to to Emirates

Amazingly for a area with a reported massive "export" market for freight,that they don't seem interested in the slightest in Freight operations, Or even airline maintenance or scrappage or painting,aero clubs or helicopter ops or basically anything non passenger related???
Oh well..back to a real airport thread at DTV....

Freight; Unfortunately the airport is covered by Article 1(4) of Council Directive 96/67/EC which means ground handling has to be done by agents. So around 15 years ago the airport had to sell/transfer all the freight handling equipment to the then two handling agents. The most important piece of equipment was the high scissor lift was then sold on! So now unless the handling agents 'want' the business it goes to the likes of DSA, who are not big enough to be covered by the above directive and own our old high scissor lift I believe??
I guess when we leave the EU we could go back to the old way of ground handling??
GA?? Too busy?? Well when I moved to DXB we had a flying club with two twins and six singles and around 750 movements per day! Yes two runways but...... They only moved out when movements went through the 1000 per day!!
