Very sad day for Newcastle, especially for base staff and support staff. Personally I always preferred the relative ‘sophistication’ of EZY over Ryanair and Jet2 with their holiday camp style and constant announcements.

If you look at the timetables for EZY for next year, the flight times, certainly to Malaga are very similar with 7am departures outbound. Will these be subject to change or maybe these are served by Belfast or Bristol based aircraft and crew?

Newcastle Chronicle are reporting EZY will only fly to BFS and BRS, with NCE to continue until October then no more flights at all, surely that can't be true

I think we need to wait for them to re-jigg the summer 2021 timetable but winter does not look great right now.

It apppears so - from the Chronicle
A Newcastle International Airport spokeswoman said: "As of today easyJet concluded its staff consultation and has taken the decision to close three UK bases including Newcastle International Airport. Our thoughts go out to all easyJet staff who have been affected. The North East has a long standing relationship with easyJet and whilst this base closure will impact flights to all their international destinations the airline will maintain year-round services to Belfast, Bristol and Nice for this summer only. Over 80% of the international destinations affected are already served by our existing airline partners and we will continue discussions regarding their interest in the other impacted destinations.

And that's totally gone too? That seems like a big loss, I'd have thought that would be a profitable route. Here's hoping it makes a return once the current travel situation improves.

Wonder how they selected which bases were to go? Not sure it would be as a result of massive competition.

So where is there a published statement stating specifically that NCL-GVA is cancelled for Winter 20/21 ?
At present it remains on booking engine, and as stated elsewhere the equipment was from their European base(s) on numerous occasions last winter....

I just took that from other comments saying that the only winter routes from NCL would be BRS and BFS. Apologies if I got the wrong end of the stick.

Yep the last thing you need on a 7am departure. Jess Glynn on repeat with loads of drunken Geordies!

The only source so far seems to be the Evening Chronicle and comments on their Facebook from staff. Saying that, the press aren’t exactly reliable till official statement from EasyJet. Had to laugh on Look North tonight when they showed a map of the EasyJet routes and it showed Faroe in the Shetland Islands!!!!

Most of easyet's winter programme from Newcastle can no longer be booked. Nice stopping at the end of September, not October. Appears to be a Geneva flight on Saturday during the skiing season.

See my post 2567 - "whilst this base closure will impact flights to all their international destinations the airline will maintain year-round services to Belfast, Bristol and Nice for this summer only"

From a quick look, the booking engine doesn't seem to have been changed for any flights yet.

Booking engine has been changed for the winter season. Not yet for Summer 2021.
