Military, business flights, emergency cover, general aviation, diversions etc. I always thought connectivity and providing a service to the local area was a rather important facet of local airports?
Ans like last time, all can be handled with PPR (might be a bit harder for diversions.... )

It's not nice out there - need to balance cost saved against income foregone.

Iberia Express, a low-cost airline owned by Iberia, will operate multiple flights to and from Newcastle between the 26th December 2020 and the 3rd January 2021.

I canít understand however closing an airfield for 4 hours in the middle of the day.

Oh well🤔
Why stay open if there are no flights scheduled? Shut the airport and save on the staffing costs.

Not worth staying open on the off chance a military flight wants to come in, and on the off chance they do, they can always arrange cover with a days notice. GA can continue with the airport closed, they just need to treat it as an uncontrolled airfield.

Hopefully this will be the start of more regular operations in the summer. The airport news story certainly suggests Iberia Express as a long term relationship.

Presumably just new for Jet2 at NCL rather than new to NCL - TUI do Kefalonia and Skiathios, did TCX do Santorini from NCL?

Hope the Vacinnce effects are quick and effective. Newcastle is a winner if Covid disappears for Logan. I do have a vested interest in any plans. However until people wish to jump on aeroplanes and are allowed to, that is the issue.

"Hope the Vaccine effects are quick and effective"

It's going to take quite a while - you probably need 60% of the population immunised before the virus transmission goes into serious decline - that's circa 40 million people in the UK - at 1 million a week it'll be September . People may start traveling earlier but you have to have a results at both ends. I'd expect little change in the rules until Easter, when we should start to see infection in the vulnerable start to fall - after that a gradual easing until the feel they can swamp any local flareups - probably around June once the universities disperse
