SWBKCB..not sure what you are getting at with bias?

The airport is open 0900-1300LT. Not sure what good that is actually offering the NE economy,and dare I say it ,the UK efforts to get back to normal.
The airport over the the last few(many years) has been the major player in the region. I would suggest dividends have been greatly received by the local authorities,who yes...have contributed over the years?
An earlier post suggested that BA wanted to continue limited ops. but we’re refused? Any others?

Can’t believe the airport can’t offer longer and more effective opening hours.
There is a lot of activity out there still...and the NE ,as usual is at the rear end of the UK response?

Build it..and they will come.

Never mind..TIA. Maybe fortuitously ..continues to provide a decent available aviation service?

My understanding is that the proposed BA schedule was "somewhat random and flexible".

Also, apart from the regular published hours, the airport is available when requested. Teesside is open as requested by its major resident operator. Your point is?

Point is....If airports are closed..it becomes a little difficult to provide a service.

If an airport is open..it becomes slightly easier?

Yes ,I accept at the present time it boils down mainly to the economics. Would have thought the most successful airport in the NE would be able to stretch....a little in availability.

Just out of interest, are you referring to the Spanish and Portuguese quarantines, or to the UK one that hasn't actually started yet, and apart from BoJo doing a full 180 on whether France was or wasn't included, appears to have gone rather quiet since it was announced a week ago.

It's the UK one I was referring to, but like I say it's all up in the air (or not, as the case may be ).

OK, I'll ask the obvious question - why does it matter?

OK, I'll answer the obvious.
Who are the flights intended for?
Purely day return businessmen? Will the timings work for that?

I'm trying to understand why they are going to Barcelona, Tenerife, Malaga, Alicante etc when they are not allowing tourists to enter the country.

4x weekly that means no one can do a DAY TRIP

It’s a start

Spain’s areas are in different “phases” at the moment. There’s a decent chance by then they’ll be accepting at least some tourists in some areas. They’re putting preventative measures in places for tourists arriving to try to avoid the 14 day quarantine period.

The likes of the Canaries are reporting no cases daily most of the time so if they can heat scan etc they’re going to be in a strong position over the next 3/4 weeks.

I would have thought that in that situation the last thing they would want is lots of people flying in from places with a much higher infection rate.

‘They’ probably don’t want people coming but ‘they’ also will want their income. People will sit on the extremes of views wanting one or the other whilst moderates may take a pragmatic, risk based approach. Same debate happening in UK resorts; we don’t want visitors but help, our economy is dying. People on the extremes will have to accept if they get their wish they lose the other. Something has to give or we remain locked away for ever...

Good post, if only the people in power recognised that.
