Are you seriously suggesting the airport should miss an opportunity to advertise to a potential crowd of up to 34000 people?!

Shame that the much discussed MME-NWI route will operate every day except Saturday

Nice to see lots of new DTV posters on here...more interest..maybe things picking up??
Some busy days on the movements section recently..and that's against a backdrop of ATC/airport closures/AFS restrictions..!! Just think what could be achieved with a full service???

Don't want to miss the match! (for the youngsters, weekend football games used to be played exclusively at 3 o'clock on a Saturday afternoon...)

Maybe the Mayor's paying?

Mayor says good progress is being made to 'take back control' of Teesside Airport - Gazette Live

Where's the rule that states the advert has to go out on the same day as the service?! :-S

Not a great deal I wouldn't have thought.

Robert..but does that restrict the movements and planning of customers? Plus the message it sends out that..the airport is not quite functional 100% ? Just a thought..

I think any operator worth their salt would approach the airport regardless and ask the question "can you increase the fire category for us" and the response would be "yes given the amount of business you'll be bringing in" or "no the income doesn't outweigh the additional cost", the atc closures are only short term whilst they train someone up

Major fog problems at AMS. Lots of delays & cancellations.

Great update on DTV movements regarding passenger figures.As reported and suspected not good.On course for the lowest figures since 1970?
More worryingly is the Amsterdam Blue Ribband airport route which continues a downward trend.Aberdeen a basket case and that's before 3 extra rotations per day!

Yes not good. But in the same way you were clearly itching for this:

to be the airports fault, there is also an undercurrent of blame towards the airport in your passenger figures posts.

Things will improve, Loganair will at least balance out the figures and like the movements website says, there is still more people using KLM than a 18 months - 2 years ago

NBM. Sorry is this what they call a a bit of a complex?? These are facts..being reported..what is there to hide??

There have been massive strides taken recently..but sometime all is not what it seems??
Fact. Figures are appalling....fact. The airport(maybe not Peel) is doing all it can to improve!
Staff are busting a gut and all credit and respect to them.

Any and I mean ANY airport that has no departures before 9 in morning..is it not a little unusual? Hence the innocent question,ably answered by tiger...
Chill out...

I'm late to the party and I hold my hands up to not having read the previous 100 pages.


That said, DTV needs to make a business case without relying on the Cobham work, which, in a world run by people who can see the bigger picture, would be based at RAF Leeming.

Surely the police should read all of the evidence before convicting the criminal!!


On the other hand what is at Leeming could be based at DTVA!
