they're a service provider

The company’s first product, X1-Air, is intended for airlines that currently have “limited or no indirect distribution connectivity.” It allows participating carriers to sell flights through Amadeus, Sabre and soon Travelport, as well as offers scheduling, fare filing, messaging, inventory management, booking, ticketing and settlement.

Isnt this just airlines collecting desperately needed cash, knowing that if the flights don’t run they’ll only give some of it back and only after many many weeks/months? Simple cash flow exercise

Could be but I don't think that will be the case here.

I see Jet2 are starting up again on July 1st, though I've not seen specific airport info yet.

It's the same across the whole travel / accommodation industry, selling seats, beds, cabins over the coming months, that they have no way of guaranteeing delivery.
Commercially it makes sense, given that the principal reason you are unable to deliver are the actions of a third party.

It would appear that Loganair have pulled Bergen, Guernsey and Newquay from the Newcastle schedule these routes were all supposed to start this year.

Newcastle International Airport is pleased to announce that scheduled flights will resume operating from the Airport on the 1st June 2020. From Monday, Loganair will commence six flights per week to Aberdeen and KLM five flights per week to Amsterdam.
To support the return of flights, a number of measures are being introduced that will help provide a safe environment for passengers and staff.

This is the Airport’s Ten Point Plan:
  1. Anyone displaying COVID-19 symptoms or who has a member of their household self-isolating should not come to the Airport.
  2. Only car parks without human touch points will be in operation.
  3. A trial of temperature testing technology will be undertaken.
  4. Face masks must be worn within the terminal building.
  5. Only passengers and staff to enter the terminal.
  6. Intensive cleaning and hygiene regime throughout the building.
  7. Two metre social distancing enforced where possible.
  8. Initially, there will be no shops or restaurants in operation.
  9. COVID-19 prevention training for all customer facing staff.
  10. Specific measures to ensure the safety of all staff.

British Airways has axed flights to Leeds Bradford Airport.

The airline said it regularly evaluated its routes "based on where customers tell us they want to travel".

The 10 flights a week connecting Leeds Bradford Airport and London Heathrow will now stop.
-----------------------------
More business for NCL, you would think.

Cool

highwideandugly, reopening monday it seems! Red Arrow in to celebrate the reopening this morning too

Nissan moving its European HQ to Sunderland, Newcastle United being taken over by the Saudi's, could be a busy time ahead once the pandemic has died down (pardon the choice of words)

The airport has only been closed at weekends, limited hours on weekdays, so open today (and yesterday, and tomorrow...). Jet2 out on a test flight this morning.
From Monday, Loganair will commence six flights per week to Aberdeen and KLM five flights per week to Amsterdam.

In the second half of June, easyJet will commence up to four flights a week to Belfast, Eastern Airways up to six flights per week to Aberdeen and double-daily weekday flights to Southampton. Loganair will add an additional six flights per week to Southampton and Air France up to five flights every week to Paris.

Ryanair is also expected to commence two flights per week to Alicante.

Further flights are scheduled to begin operating throughout July and August.

Article in Newcastle chronicle tonight..re opening June 1st..new flight..new rules!

I wonder if the airport will consider diversification as the business model now..away from just footfall in duty free?Maybe similar to Teesside,Bournemouth,EMA, et al? Just a thought.

Pays not to have all your eggs in one basket..as has been shown these last few months?

As in my post earlier today...

The issue NCL has is with space/infrastructure for diversification.

I think any permanent divergence from the business plan based on a pandemic (at least in the long term) is ill judged - though short to medium term benefits are probably there.

This new business park and other nearby developments will certainly help.

From a purely selfish point of view, what is the latest theory on when Exeter will (re)start? Purely selfish as I'm due to visit that neck of the woods in late July. I guess this will be one of the routes that are less of a priority than Southampton or the oil run to Aberdeen. Firm news or rumours welcome
