Wikipedia saying Eurowings to begin Stuttgart- is this the usual Wikipedia nonsense or is there any knowledge behind this?

More than likely. Especially at this time. I very much doubt we'll see any new route that need a good business travel market to support them.

Only airport booming with flights is Teesside.thanks to mayors money! I’m sure the people of Teesside would rather it be spent on more Deserving causes?

its a right mess..survival of the fittest unless the government steps in?

maybe a complete realignment of the UK airport structure?

of the top of my head...approx less than 20 airports to serve the UK after this horrific episode?

Airports official statement on COVID-19

https://www.newcastleairport.com/new...t-on-covid-19/

An increasing number of airlines are now withdrawing flights and curtailing their flying schedules as numerous countries move into lockdown. Newcastle is a strong regional airport, but in order to navigate the significant reduction in passengers as a result of the COVID-19 situation, we must take urgent steps to protect the long term interests of the business and the North East region.

Last week we stopped all seasonal recruitment with immediate effect, stopped other non-essential expenditure and paused capital development projects. We have also written to all staff asking them for their help, and will consult with all permanent staff and the Unite Trade Union regarding the implementation of a range of further measures. We have to take these steps to safeguard the long term stability of the business and we will endeavour to protect employment and in particular avoid compulsory redundancies in so far as is possible; albeit this can’t be guaranteed.

The long term outlook for the business as a key asset for the region and stable employer remains positive, nevertheless such is the gravity of this unprecedented situation that we must now act decisively.

Bavaria going into lockdown from tonight. Sadly, looks like no MUC flights for at least the next two weeks. Jet2 shutting up shop until at least May. TUI possibly suspending ops until at least July. With the Emirates news above there will be little left at this rate, especially once repatriation from around the world ceases which may be keeping certain hub flights going.

From Emirates:

Emiratesí flights to London Heathrow will be reduced to two flights a day, while Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham will be served with one flight a day from 25 March to 30 June, 2020.

These destinations will all be served by Boeing 777s. The airline will also temporarily suspend its fights to Newcastle, London Stansted, London Gatwick and Edinburgh over the same period.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. We continue to monitor the situation closely, and look forward to resuming normal operations when feasible.

And the reality is, even if restrictions ease a little, international travel wonít just be allowed to come back as countries will be at different stages with the virus infections and those in a better position wonít want it coming back.

Just read the SAGE reports from today. How could international flying co-exist with this reality.

Whilst we may get restrictions lifted enough to head to our caravans in the UK, I think it could be 18 months before international flying resumes to anything like normal.
