Menzies airport services deal gets provisional green light

The deal takes Menzies into four new UK airport locations - Liverpool, Newcastle, Birmingham and Exeter.
Thought it was just Swissport left at NCL?

Airline Services what Menzies look to be taking only do De-icing, Internal presentation, exterior cleaning and dry cleaning at Newcastle.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Menzies were to bring in ground handling into NCL as currently Swissport has the monopoly across all airlines with the exception of Jet2 (above wing).

Emirates


GLA Confirmed as A380 X1 daily from April

that frees up a 777

Im expecting NCL will see something being announced by the end of 2019 if not before

It does. But it goes back to 2 x 777 at the end of the summer season - and the original change to 380 at GLA was said to be to reduce the amount of movements at DXB during runway works.

Such as? It could be argued that EK expansion at GLA and EDI isn't to NCL's benefit.

Although NCL was down 5% it seems as if Glasgow took the biggest hit at 14% for the first full month of the EDI....EK route...next month should give a better picture of the effects on nearby airports. I do agree though that it won't help NCL's hope for additional EK flights.

Housing giant Bellway is to build its new headquarters at a new business park being developed at Newcastle Airport, committing its future to the North East. The FTSE 250 firm will design and build the office which will be located at the south side of Newcastle International airport, close to the Callerton Parkway Metro Station. The development will be the anchor tenant at the Newcastle Airport Business Park, which aims to create around 2,000 jobs.

14% drop is probably well within that expected and quite low actually particularly as we were once told it was East Coasters who were bank rolling the GLA service.
Dont think NCL anywhere near a double daily upgrade esp with likely ongoing drops due to the low fares being offered on the EDI route.

If Newcastle were to go two daily I think it would be more likely with their 787s that they have ordered. Potentially will provide a small small increase over one 777 but nothing as drastic as two 777s.

As expected NCL and GLA down in Nov on DXB. GLA down 15% which is probably not unreasonable and similar to last month. Interesting EDI carried a lot more last month, would have thought it would have been month on month increase

if you remember though they were operated by a Flybe Dash 8 this summer so unless itís an aircraft of similar size again in 2019 this isnít really a cut.

The cut in frequency to SZG is still an increase in seats compared to summer 2018. Flybe Dash 8 was capped at 74 seats (out of 78) IIRC. TUI will be using their own 737-800 Summer 19 with 189 seats (no cap). So BE could only offer 148 seats between 2 flights.
