Well, just have to hope Ryanair gets round to sorting connections out across Dublin and tweaks the flight times

Past history probably suggests that as soon as Ryanair make a move, EI will follow... Then pull again

FlyBe operating the NCL-SZG on a saturday for TUI next summer.
NCL-SZG 0800-11:45 BE9231
SZG-NCL 12:25-14:30 BE9232

It seems that TUI have dropped Faro as well?

Stobarts moving an extra ATR to SEN with NCL drawing the short straw.
Provisionally seems to remain at one daily 1045 departure for next summer too, think it’s time the airport did something to stem the loss of scheduled carriers, first SAS, EI down to one daily, who’s next Eurowings?

Chopping and changing frequencies/times does nothing except kill once feasible routes - I'd have hoped Stobart would have learnt by now.

It's a ruddy nightmare for business travellers and a single mid day service will result in FR success, and I won't be surprised if STK retreat completely sadly.

Flybe base timing??

Is aircraft doing SOU-NCL-SZG-NCL-SOU
or just positioning in to operate the 1 flight?

I'm assuming that NCL-SZG is going to be on an Embraer as opposed to a Dash?

Who's operating the Salzburg flight? TOM?

The FAO rotation has been replaced with a straight swap for SKG

Based on the flight times of 2hr 45min outbound and 3hr 5 mins on the return on the SZG I would say it will not be operated by a Embraer. Could the flight end up being operated by a T3 S2000 on behalf of BE?.

Bit of a drop from the B.734 used this year.

Berlin - varies - some days loads good, some days not so good.
Copenhagen - axed
Dubai - mainly consistent with previous years.
Dusseldorf - consistent - mainly onward connecting traffic.
Madrid - similar to Berlin but more consistent with higher loads.

A rough guide, take it with a pinch of salt.

Nothing new from TC for winter 18/19 just ACE, FUE, HRG & TFS until April when they add AYT & NBE.

TUI are doing ALC, AGP, LPA, PFO & TFS. They add PMI in April.

I swear you it used to be the case that bookings only went 330 days out... And now I can book 18 months in advance? It's crazy!

I'm not surprised, Monarch's demise has likely meant that all of TCX/TOM/LS' future resources will be directed firmly into the South East and the Midlands... As if it wasn't already

With EZY adding extra frames at LPL and SEN... Perhaps we could feature in their expansion plans, but I'm not holding out for much more.

Disappointed not to see any new Ryanair additions as well

"Such a shame it's always the same"

be careful what you wish for - a lot of airports are seeing a steady erosion of service.....

Very true for what we wish for.
Just it seems that winter schedule from TUI/TCX Hasn't changed for years now.
Only new routes we have seen have been Ryanair coming in.
Surely people from the north east would like a greater choice in winter time from there local airport.

To be fair (touch wood) I'm really really impressed that, on the whole, Newcastle has managed to build up and maintain a sustainable and profitable service

I just think it's about nurturing and developing that sustainable base now... I'm realistic about what Newcastle can and can't do... Things that I think they can do in the next 5 years are:

- Another easyJet frame
- Another Jet2 frame or 2
- More long haul offering from Thomson with a based/part based 787 (x2 weekly regular Orlando/Cancun, weekly/bi-weekly Jamaica/Dominican Republic/Puerto Vallarta... Perhaps Cuba/Thailand in the long term) --- and/or seasonal long haul from TCX/VS
- FRANKFURT!!!
- Increase in Ryanair offering, and after brexit is ironed out, a potential base
- 4/5 weekly Turkish to Istanbul once the new airport opens

With a heavy heart, I don't think we'll see a second Emirates flight before the 15th anniversary... Based on their track record, I'd even hesitate to say that Qatar jumping in on our turf with an A32x neo or 737 MAX would be more likely than a second triple from Emirates

Although all of that sounds like a lot, and it is! It would still work out as much less expansion than the likes of Manchester, Luton and Edinburgh have seen, ans still probably less than, or in line with average UK expansion recently

You think Thailand is a realistic expectation from NCL? Behave.
