The thing is I would think they would probably have to have a codeshare agreement with SN I donít know if T3 have that

APD affects everyone equally - what is needed to build more robust airlines is (shock horror) higher fares. As long as someone can come in and offer very low fares then everyone but the true LCA's will continue to bleed slowly to death

Passenger Statistics has now been re-instated on Newcastle Airport's website, although only from last year (Previously these were shown from 2016) :

The historic problem has been that due to EU law, it would be seen as discriminatory to not levy APD on UK domestic routes whilst charging it on similar length UK<>EU routes. Of course things could potentially change in this area...

Also creating a base up here, good news indeed!

Well that was quick they don’t hold back. Hopefully they can bring more routes to the airport but Welcome Loganair. Hopefully they will take on the ex flyBMI crew to operate it probably saving them money doing that

Think they will need the crew and the aircraft to operate the routes.

Good news indeed given the situation, hopefully theyíll put some thought into adding more than just BRU and SVG. I suspect Eastern will be watching this rather closely given Loganairs links to Aberdeen...

I would very much suspect LM will transfer ex BM NCL crew over as they are all ready to go on the EMB 145s which LM will be operating out of NCL. Just new uniform, training etc before start of service as well as negotiating employment contracts.

the positive here (given both companies were under common ownership with access to trading information) is that the NCL routes must be doing well or they would have chosen other ones to continue... (looking a bit like a pre-pack administation if other ex BMI routes follow)

I agree with both these comments - the NCL operation was pretty much a stand alone base, but is clearly valuable as it's been immediately replicated. Any expansion would be a whole new ball game.

I've seen two start dates for new Loganair services, 11th March and 25th March. Wonder which is correct, hopefully the 11th to reduce as much impact possible.

11th March - https://www.itv.com/news/tyne-tees/2...r-by-loganair/
25th March - https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news...saved-15844234

The flights are now bookable on the Loganair website
NCL-BRU x 2 Mon-Thurs (0625 and 1705), x1 Fri, x1 Sun (Both evening dep) LM542 and 546
NCL-SVG x1 Mon-Fri and 1 x Sun (1310) LM504
All beginning on the 25th March

Same times as the BM which would make sense with the slots in BRU and the prices aren’t actually to bad

Id get the 'convenient' transition over first before worrying about expansion

The Loganair website says 25th March, but I'm assuming both the Chronicle and the ITV stories are cut and paste jobs from a local media press release, so maybe the ITV one is from a later version and things are moving fast...

Loganair could be good for airports like NCL and ABZ - they are used to running low density flights to less popular locations and there is no reason why they shouldn't be able to build a nice little network servicing places the big boys and the bucket and spade mob don't want to go to

Thats exactly what bmi regional did though, and that didnt end too well. Perhaps their fleet was a little too big, forcing them to try and find work for the extra aircraft through contract flying in Europe. Hopefully Loganair can cherry pick the successful routes and turn a profit.

Today's Emirates EK36 to Dubai is showing on Newcastle Airport'e departures as being Rescheduled to Tomorrow (Saturday 23rd Feb) with a departure time of 11.00.
Could this be a Technical issue or possibly crew?
