KLM

interesting thought from centre cities.

Not mentioned on here but at the same time KLM have chopped more than normal from here( i know they do this every xmas) Easyjet have started their flights to AMS from newcastle .I know (some) the loads have been very good(friends experience on 3 flights) could this be having an unwanted effect here?

just a thought if its them.

The bad news mentioned on the movements website is the Thomson news, it's common knowledge around the airport. The reason is said to be TOM are not in a good place financially and as such are consolidating to NCL and DSA (I believe Leeds have/are losing them as well)

KLM are very happy with DTVA.

TOM are not in a good place financially


Somewhat early for April 1st, no?

Brand new Dreamliners on the way, fleet overhaul with brand new B738s, very good summer 2012, revamp and removal of seats in some 757s for mid-haul routes like Cape Verde, impressive forward bookings into 2013.

Yup, not a good place financially....

Perhaps
TOM are not in a good place financially
should actually read
TOM are not in a good place financially at DTV, as the development of LBA and NCL has seen demand for the airport pincered and split between the two, making DTV unviable in the long term.

Tom at MME?

If the DTV news is that Thomson are leaving, how many flights will dtv lose per year?

Will that leave KLM, Eastern and Cobham who will be left for 2013?

Thomson Leaving ?

you ask how many flights? not too many but its the kudos?

really that leaves us with no IT type flights at all? Lots of 6 lost.Maybe its time to fight back and scrap this stupid charge(tax).

in some ways i hope it is thomson and not FRL/Cobham as Im sure they contribute more to the coffers ?

KLM signed a new contract beginning of the year so not them..

Northbound,

The only conclusion to be gained by any amount of rhetoric on this site is that it is hoplessly out of date.
As an example from the same site :-
Durham Tees Valley Airport handles almost 700,000 passengers a year

Passenger Tax at DTV Airport

With regards to the 6 passenger tax at Durham Tees Valley Airport,
what happens to this money and does it include VAT?

Who is responsible for adding this tax to customers at DTV?

It's not a tax i.e. nothing to do with the government. Its' a charge for using the airport. Quote from:

Durham Tees Valley Airport - Passenger Facility Fee

What is the Passenger Facility Fee (PFF)?
The Passenger Facilities Fee is a charge made by Durham Tees Valley Airport (DTVA) on all departing passengers to help support the continued operation of the airport and to secure its future.

However :-
Although VAT is not chargable on travel such as air or rail fares being zero rated, this does not extend to the DTVA PFF which is standard rated & on such basis then DTV would be accountable for the vat on such revenue. This is backed up by DTV stating that the 6 receipt can be used as a vat receipt.
i.e. a net revenue to DTV of 5 & an output vat liability of 1.....?

Came through MME the other day for the first time in years, I was on the TOM from TFS. It was quite a novel experience being only 15 minutes from home once through the airport.

It would be a great shame if the TOM winter flights stopped, we need more not less. My next flight in January from EMA to france, April is from NCL, and as per usual my business class flights to the USA are from MAN, I would be unwilling to book these through MME for two reasons, 1. I would hate my holiday ruined if by the time I was to travel the airport did not exist and 2. I got sick of my bags missing or being on the wrong connection from AMS.

People like myself and my wife are simply not being served by our local airport, I have no problem with paying 6 for the ease of traveling from near home but quite simply there are so few flights we have to look elsewhere.
At least the transpennine express benefits from an annual payment from us to MAN

I live next to the airport so have an interest in what happens there.
While out walking the dogs recently I noticed some surveying going on. Have any plans being submitted for building there or are they mapping the ground for another reason?

Bad news from DTV

We were led to believe by some that an announcement would
be made re 'some bad news' in the New year. Nothing forthcoming so hopefully its gone away!!

However...seems a little strange that KLM seem to have...for the moment stopped the third departure to AMS...is that it ? or just Xmas schedules...over to the guys who know

As 1st Jan was a Tuesday many people in offices took the whole of this week as part of their annual holiday allowance. Furthermore after returning from holiday people usually want a day or two at their desk before flying off to meet customers. Wait until the middle of next week and things should revert to normal.

DTV KLM Competition

I assumed that the announcement was going to be about Thomson - DTV is missing from their online booking for 2014. Mention of KLM cutting back led me to look at Easyjet prices for their new Newcastle to Amsterdam service - picking a random date: Wednesday March 6th 2013 Easyjet were offering a flight for 27-49 at 17-00. On the KLM website for DTV to Amsterdam on the same day at 17-10 433 was the asking price! Presumably competition on the Newcastle - Amsterdam route will affect KLM at Newcastle, but the northern part of DTV's catchment area will surely take a hit was well!
