Possibly - though there was 8 large biz n/s, plus a private 738, an extra BA night stopper as well as the full complement of summer based a/c. I thought it was meant to be a bad year for grouse??

My thoughts exactly. I have no expertise in stand management but I remember the days when they used to park 4x737s/1-11s across the old stands 2 to 4, and they could stick 2 or 3 F27s/748s on one of the pier-end stands. Never seems to happen these days. Me being a bit of an eco-warrior, it would be disappointing if a Gulfstream made a return trip to FAE when it was possible to squeeze it in somewhere.

Yes - the modern Globals and Gulfs are not small!

Modern world guys...business is hard to come by..dare I say it..more so in the NE...you find a away and keep the customer and reputation in tact! Remember the ash cloud..Newcastle was amazing in what they did to accommodate those flights..tell me..what has changed?


that cargo apron..must be able to accommodate more than three business aircraft..even largish ones?
anyone been to Luton..squeezed in together all over..!

If you look at the Aerodrome manual and docking charts youíll see thereís only three stands on the Golf apron 60,61 and 62. Iíve seen the larger Gulfstreams parked up on there whilst the two mail aircraft were on there too and it was tight enough. Unfortunately under normal circumstances you canít just stick aircraft anywhere, the ash cloud was a slightly different set of circumstances.

Interesting they didn't send them down the road! Must be cheaper than Farnborough! Perhaps ground servicing might be an issue.

grow up - read the original comment confirming the loss of the Berlin route.

Then note that that there is no further speculation regarding profitability of the route and that they should have kept it going blah blah blah.

further there is then no follow up saying well if they based another aircraft and opened up routes to Lisbon, Munich and Madrid for example they would make a killing.

Whereís the non sense Jonny??

more than happy to discuss the demographics of the north east, Brexit, the effect of Airport departure tax, business models, etc etc on the airport anytime you wish 😀

and perhaps there is no need to swap Tui 737ís as they are so reliable unlike the subject matter discussed above.

I'm ready to be flamed here but, putting my eco-warrior hat on again, one of the changes in behaviour that is needed to deal with climate change will be more use of what highwideandugly describes as 'imagination and a slide rule', not just in aviation but in any CO2 producing industry. As I say, I'm an outsider looking in, but if the ash cloud could be dealt with in the way it was without compromising safety, I am sceptical that they couldn't fit an extra Gulfstream in anywhere (07 run up area even?) to save an unnecessary return trip to FAE.
Reet, I'll get off me soapbox (and retreat to a safe distance).

The ash cloud also happened in late April / early May at a time when the Summer program wasn’t in full swing so there was extra parking stands anyway as well as extra stands available due to many cancellations by other airlines. Not once that I can remember were any aircraft parked in Taxiways or run up areas. I’m fairly sure the airport will have various heath and safety regulations as well as potential insurance issues that go against parking anywhere other than designated parking stands other than in exceptional circumstances.

On Thursday night / Fri morning there wasn’t a spare parking stand in sight thanks to the extra business jets, the Stobart that didn’t return to ORK due weather, the extra BA night stopper at the moment and the EZY TLV-MAN diversion that came in the early hours!

TUI have added a Thursday NCL - CFU from next summer according to their schedule, leaving at 0600hrs. This brings the Corfu route up to 4 days a week with various airlines. Good news for us as we use the route 6 times a year. Anyone know what it's replaced?

I can't post a link as I don't have enough privileges but if you search Newcastle Airport on Youtube there's a video by JWinton filmed during Storm Ali last Wednesday 19th. Its called Storm Ali Go arounds & HEAVY Crosswinds 50kt+ at Newcastle Airport and includes an Emirates go around.
