Let's not dilute numbers with flights to another hub
You should be so lucky..........

By standing still then the business is effectively moving backwards.

Dangerous situation having a monopoly, especially as the economy improves & the ensuing demand increases

Northern Echo, 26/09/2014

Peter Nears, strategic planning director at owners Peel Group... ...said: “When we lost the route down to Heathrow in 2009 it wasn’t because it wasn’t making money. It was just that a long haul route out of the same slot can make tens of millions."



Northern Echo, 19/02/2009

Peter Spencer, managing director of bmi, said a decline in demand and above-inflation cost increases at Heathrow meant the routes had become unsustainable and that unless BAA, which owns and runs Heathrow, reversed its pricing policy, there was little prospect of the routes becoming profitable in the future. Mr Spencer said: “The fact is that – due in the main to BAA’s inflation-busting increases and changes to its pricing structures that place a considerable disadvantage on short haul flights – travellers in the north of England are losing their important links to Heathrow. Instead of Heathrow, they will now have to rely on European airports such as Amsterdam, Brussels and Frankfurt to connect to worldwide destinations. BAA, through its tactics, would appear to want to completely cut itself off from the UK regions. This is a strategy that will inevitably have a negative impact upon the economic growth and inward investment in those key areas.”

Same old from the same old, enough said! Thought the Echo was going to produce something interesting but no just a re-print.

Exclamation God bless peel....

Blackpool. 227 k. Almost certainly being buried in the sand next month.

Hopefully DTV peels. pockets are deeper. Circa. 150 k. Passengers.

Both sites ripe for investment??

Uncertain times for all.

You won't let it go!! However there are questions which need answers??

My fear is Manston now Blackpool. Is dtv next? It seems pretty easy these days to close airports?

It's going to be an interesting few months.a bad winter might well accelerate the process..how willing are peel to spend money keeping the place open? De-ice rand snow clearance doesn't come cheap.wonder if fodtv. Are on standby again.

Would that be the same "Hugh" who is involved in that other fiasco in the Wynyard hospital development?

Hughie

Hughies and hospitals. Is this the same Hugh over at the Wynard development?
Peel aren't the developers at Wynard by any chance are they?
Unusual side on picture of this trust board, must have caught him by surprise
Meet the board| South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Beafer....would have thought you have known with all your local knowledge that the proposed Wynyard Hospital development is for North Tees NHS Trust, Hugh is on the board of the South Tees NHS Trust...like several of your comments close but no cigar!

Yes there is a river between the two trusts called the Tees, but I wasn't sure if it was the same Hughie who was mentioned at Wynard which doesn't exist yet.
As for cigars, I wouldn't want one thanks
Is Hughie still on the Peel board?

Beafer do you have any idea whatsoever how these things work? Tesco will have contacted multiple airports regarding storage of the aircraft, and Peel will have provided the better deal and therefore won the contract.

Sycamore Aviation

Any further updates on Sycamore? Not much happening recently with aircraft ferrying to UK for scrapping in general so not surprised of their difficulties.

Well there's nothing else in the hangar 1 after Sycamore were booted out so anything earned is a plus for Peel.
Wrong again they have been in there all week!

Zombie airports

A good piece in the independent yesterday. Unfortunately its a bit unbalanced.
Our airports demise, that has put us at the bottom of the table of decline in passenger numbers since 2008, is because Peel have forced it down, and down it continues to go.
The only reason they haven't kicked out FlyBe is because they are code sharing with KLM.
Let me ask a question , has anyone ever Applied 'How far is the nearest proper airport' to the Northern region;You would be surprised to see how much is covered by Teesside as the nearest airport, and this will increase further when Blackpool closes.
That aside why isn't Peel pushing to have a model like Globespans resident aircraft on stand delivering 2 destinations a day. I never travelled on it once when it was less than 90% full? let me tell you. They are not interested.

He's referring to Sycamore, they're back in their hangar.

Beafer you really are clutching at straws now in your efforts to find a reason to bash Peel, that's the problem with the critics, they don't want the airport to be turned around and succeed because they enjoy bashing it too much.

Codesharing with KLM from DTVA? Or are you referring to some other airport?
