certainly during the summer. During the winter, the based aircraft arent utilised heavily

I understood Barcelona and Split were partially underwritten by cruise companies so maybe they will stay as well (assuming cruising returns at some point)?

Haven't they operated a pattern to Malaga in the past as well? Think they did BFS-NCL-AGP-BFS or something like that? Or I may have gotten the wrong airport completely!

They've definitely done something like it in the past. I think one aircraft did a BFS-LTN-AGP-BFS, while a second covered LTN-BFS-AGP-LTN in order to serve early AM arrivals to LTN and BFS on both legs. You could achieve similar with aircraft starting out from the same airport serving a foreign link in counterflow inbetween, but it's a complex bit of scheduling and one I doubt will become commonplace.

Out of Newcastle they've done BFS-NCL-AGP/ALC-BFS and NCL-BFS-AGP/ALC-NCL in recent years, and also something similar through Bristol in the past. Gives the advantage of an early morning domestic departure and then a flight to the Med at a more civilised time after the 'first wave'. All get's a bit lopsided with only one base in the set up...

I would not build up hopes of any significant amount of flying remaining on non-based aircraft. The bases at BFS and BRS have redundancies as well (although BFS looks to be the smallest impact of any of the UK bases) and so there is no movement of capacity into these airports to counteract that being lost at NCL, SEN and STN.

Interesting statement from an easyjet spokeswoman (my underlining):
“As we have only just started this consultation and no decisions have yet been taken, the proposals are close our Newcastle base at the end of August so customers booked to fly from the airport over the summer will not be affected as a result of this. Newcastle remains an important network point for us and we will still continue to serve the airport as a destination as part of our wider network as much of our flying is inbound from bases around the UK. These flights will continue as they do today.”

What is going on with re-starting flights at NCL?? No BA yet.... no wonder MME LCY flights seemed to have good loads yesterday! KLM/AF no night stopper/early morning departure yet?? Look at AMS on FR24 around 0700(BST) just about every UK regional has an arrival first thing into AMS! Even Inverness!!??
I would dearly like to use the airport but with no EK and no hub connection its impossible! MAN here I come!

Not sure the loads on MME were good if you read the Teesside thread. In addition, no KLM morning departure until August there.

Very few few people flying yet...

KLM and AF both have daily flight, KL mid morning, AF either mid morning or late afternoon depending on day.
It does seem the airport is lagging behind mind, especially given that MAN now has its ET link back, and NCL/BA cant even get a daily LHR up and running

BA back next week? Presume you mean EK rather than ET - if so, how many other UK regional routes are back apart from MAN? "lagging behind" is a bit unfair, for an airport in such a small region, NCL does well for hub routes.

naw, ET I meant. In the context in that you wouldnt really think of them as a bread and butter operator.

We'll have to see what plans, if any, the airport has for replacing easyJet too.

Got an email from Eurowings this morning with a link to flights that are resuming this month. The link states NCL-DUS is starting again this month but when you try to book there's no flights until September.

London

If the trains is any indication of people travelling to London from the north east then itís no wonder BA have set it back.

most trains only have around 30-40 people instead of 300 so unless people start booking flights they wonít run them yet

cost BA more at the minute
