That's nearly 20,000 passengers down on a rolling period**, while other UK airports are showing steady growth.

Was there not a new Business/Route Development Manager employed by the airport to expand growth approx. 9 - 12 months ago?

** slide started September last year, with a slight pick up in October, then steady decline month on month since.

2017's Figures (No longer shown on Airports Statistics page) were: September: 585,498; October: 504,979; November: 305,444, and December: 302,976

I'm surprised Domestic as up cos in Jan and Feb the drop on LHR dwarfed any other changes in the monthly stats. As to comparisons with the growth of other airports, just look at regional growth figures - the north east was the second lowest in England in 2018.

This will have been impacted by Easter being earlier in 2018 (Good Friday and Easter Saturday were in March last year). Surprised domestic is up after a big fall in February, presumably BA must be compensating with the loss of a daily flight with bigger planes.

Domestic was severely affected everywhere in 2018 by the Beast from the East.

Does this not happen every year as the summer season flights start ending around about Oct.

You've not read the post correctly...
Decline is in terms of comparison to exact same month of previous year as indicated by figures given for September - December 2017 vs 2018, Only exception is a small blip (Increase) in October 2018 vs. October 2017. Hence rolling decline on full 12 month + period is just shy of - 20,000 pax.

TUI 3rd time lucky lets see if AGA gets off the ground next summer....

These extra flights what have we lost or we close to a 4th based aircraft now?
I see that BRS is getting a 787-8 based all week and is doing short haul routes when not flying long haul.
I wonder if this could happen at NCL soon also

Ryanair new routes?

Just seen on the Ryanair booking engine on Ryanair.com that 3 new destinations have been added:

- Cork
- Shannon
- Toulouse

If these routes are coming I'd say starting Winter 2019 (for TLS base opening)

As the previous posts suggests it will be rugby and 10th and 11th May are the dates for both the European finals in Newcastle.

Toulouse is more of hope than definite as they are away at Leinster this weekend but the Challenge Cup Final could be all French with La Rochelle and Clermont at home and favourites against Sale and Harlequins respectively.

BHX has had around 8 or 9 extra flights from Cork and Shannon for the Saracens v Munster semi at the Ricoh in Coventry tomorrow so definitely be good for Newcastle to hope the Irish but on a good show against Sarries tomorrow

For Newcastle to gain a decent amount of extra pax for the final I suggest Munster will be the key, as I think they took 11000 fans to Edinburgh in the quarters. As for the other one Toulouse haven't been in the main final for a few years and might bring a few over but and of course Leinster if they win will ensure several flights but I am not sure if many Clermont or La Rochelle fans will travel for what is the football equivalent to the Europa League final.

Should be fairly good news for the airport in respect of the challenge cup final as results were as expected albeit closer than predicted - it is a Clermont v La Rochelle and it is the latters first major European final but not sure how many will travel but both games today were packed out with a very atmospheric/passionate feel.

11 May Final - Not so good news as Saracens won.

Hopefully, we shall have a good charter programme for the Rugby Finals 10/11th May. Leinster's win today gets us a good Irish contingent, two French teams and Saracens ( maybe a couple from Stansted./Luton)

Today's BY1211 from Alicante operated by Manchester based 757 Reg: G-OOBB, returning to ALC as BY1210, I guess on a "W" pattern, originally planned as 737 Max8 (as is also planned to operate as MAX 8 next week according to FR24 - so likely similar substitution will take place until MAX issue is resolved.

The above posted on 12th March re. Loganair expansion at Newcastle.
Nothing showing as yet on timetables.
Is there any further news on LM expansion from Newcastle to ABZ,BGO or OSL etc...
