Another 24% increase in Dublin pax....these are not exactly small increases....wish we knew load factors. The stats also show 279 pax to BHD which will be via IOM. I wonder if this needs to be added to the IOM figure?

Well at least he didn't "think he was going to die" and that the pilot didn't "swerve to avoid schools and hospitals"! And how exactly did he measure 10 feet??

Why do newspapers print this dross, apart from the obvious reason that it fills the space between the adverts?

Virtually every day is a "slow news day" for regional newspapers, and for that matter local TV news bulletins!

Fewer than you might think/imagine or expect !

Just 1.1m out of 27m of ALL passenger traffic through Dublin is actually connecting.

UK-Dublin is overwhelmingly Point to point.

Dublin figures won't be as high going forward as Ryanair went double daily June last year so I expect to see the figures increase slightly not by 20%+

Another healthy load today, SXF-NCL with 153 pax

NCL-SXF, 29/06, 135 pax (75%) - would have been 86.5% on the A319 as was scheduled
SXF-NCL. 04/07, 153 pax (98.1%)

The latest Norwich Masterplan shows a route to NCL as the most important domestic route requirement.

Revealed: Norwich Airport?s 30-year vision to treble passenger numbers and forge worldwide links - Business - Eastern Daily Press

In the above article 3rd paragraph below photo of check-in desk reads:
“We also want to increase domestic routes and serve the needs of that market. For instance, bringing back the route to Newcastle would join up with the wind farm and offshore energy industry, which is a key driver of this region.”

Thanks, that's great - it's not mentioned in the Masterplan or the airports own press release. As most local news stories just reproduce the press release, didn't look further - doh!

Sorry that was a bit misleading....it was said in a statement by the MD of Norwich airport while discussing the Masterplan, they asked him which new routes he would like to see operate.

NWI

Quite frankly I don't think any of our current based operators bar Eastern would be able to make any success in such a route, and then there's the fact that there isn't any capacity in Easterns based aircraft to operate this route. So The aircraft would have to come from elsewhere, perhaps dropping in the Eastern Saab on a transit flight on its way back and forth from ABZ would be an easy solution. Other than that I can only really see Flybe with a D328 being able to give it a good enough go, but I'm not sure what the situation is with Flybe and the D328, does the aircraft belong to Loganair?

Market Is big the amount of people using the trains from ncl changing at Peterborough to places of Norwich and near by..

My fear is the train is so cheap compared to what the air fares would be
I agree best idea aircraft drops in on route to abz

Route would have to be 2x daily also

That does sound the best idea. No doubt Norwich are already in discussion with airlines about the possibilities.
