Debt is debt and is a bad thing no matter how you spin it.
I mustn't have been paying attention that day, can you remind me how this economic theory without the use of debt works?

Durham Tees Valley Airport has welcomed the Government recommendation that London Heathrow should be the preferred location for additional south east capacity and the proposal of a new domestic service to Durham Tees Valley once the expansion is complete.
Steve Gill, chief executive of Durham Tees Valley Airport said
“We welcome the Government’s recommendation for London Heathrow as its preferred location for additional south east capacity. Connectivity into the UK’s global hub is key to supporting economic growth of the regions and secured slots for regional services will ensure the economic benefit including inbound tourism are felt across the UK.
“Heathrow’s announcement proposing that Durham Tees Valley will be one of six domestic routes added once the expansion is completed is welcome and we look forward to working with them and airline partners to explore this in the future.”
Not sure who would operate the route, and the runway isn't guaranteed yet!

Catch 22 -Heathrow Expansion

So,that puts our friends at PEEL on the spot and in a pickle....

A) invest and plan for the future.Routes etc..
B)go with the master plan..houses etc. And hope the residents don't kick off when the airport gets busy(like Heathrow!)
C)come up with another master plan (2) now -that alleviates any future problems !!
Or
D)cut an run!

Answers on a postcard please...

Interesting times.

And you'll find the same story running in relation to every regional airport - once all these new domestic services start they'll need another new runway...

what about the terminal??


2025 when the 3rd runway will be operational at Heathrow apparently.. that's if everything goes to plan, so do we really think the terminal at DTV will still be open then??? lets see in 5 years shall we??


On the other hand, lets hope peel get their act together now and pull something out of the bag with flybe flights via Doncaster or W flights from their..

If any LHR flights materialise, they'll just be on the scale of AMS, so what changes would be needed?

What they would do is strength the global connectivity point, so putting Peel in a stronger position with the LA's

Caravans: Issue with a third party company and not the airport as clearly stated and therefore not relevant to this thread, it's a non-story even if it was

Comments under article: Always the same, luckily the majority of [uninformed] members of the general public all thinking the same thing doesn't make it right

Peel money news. £323 million richer.

Peels Pinewood Studios has been sold for £323 million.

More money for the rich man on the island. And they say there isnít any money around. The rich just get richer while taking government grants to put access roads in for housing

Pinewood Group sold for £323m, netting majority shareholders Peel £126m - Prolific North

If anyone thinks Peel will be putting any of their own money into DTV or Teesside as it should be known, you'll be waiting a long time.

What was it they said when they got the place for £500k? "We will spend £20m and make it a successful airport"!!

Pull the other one, its going the same way as what they did in Sheffield.
Any news on the rubbish plant in Hangar 5?
Have Peel made any announcements while I've been on holiday?
Has Robert Hough been up to spout any new Master Plans? Maybe he is on the island counting the £323m

Beafer, unlike CO, my alleged alter-ego, (please to God come back!!!) I cannot be ad to pick apart your last post point-by-point, so I will just keep it nice and simple by saying what a big load of misinformed, inaccurate BS!

£323m, well bought it cheap as it was a failing company in a downturned industry. Turned it around back into a success and decided to sell it on.

Durham Tees valley

well well well.... no surprise to see anyone from Peel/DTV on the north east news tonight, only Newcastle airport management saying how the extra runway at Heathrow will help the north east... yet again, fair play to Newcastle airports management for promoting the place in any way they can.....

And of course a deduction of £10 off the Ncl to Lhr fare courtesy of Heathrow airport.

Probably more to do with the fact that it is easier & quicker to get a film crew to NCL from Newcastle city centre than it is to MME.
