Looks like Tui taking on Skiathos on a Wednesday for S20, and Dalaman going daily? Still expect Hurghada and maybe Santorini to be added

A quick look on TUI first week in MAY 20 and VRN NAP RHO & JSI all depart on a wednesday morning for example so that looks like 4x to me ? Looks like more will be added.

Time moved on & with diminishing demand from military the route terminated at AMS & in late 60's Viscounts replaced by BAC 1-11's, which morphed into today's KL AMS route.
You are correct. I did some more research and apparently BUA took over the DUS route from BKS at some point in the 1960s and routed it via AMS instead of RTM. In 1964, it was thrice weekly with a DC3, in 1966 it was daily except saturdays on a Viscount. The flight indeed originated at GLA. It was, however, no longer operated in 1968.

TUI are apparently adding Hurghada too according to travel trade press...

Santorini, Hurghada and Skiathos are added from Newcastle airport together with additional flying days to destinations such as Orlando, Dalaman, Tenerife, Palma and Larnaca.

Thanks for that post. Forces - linked VFR traffic was important in that era and may give some support ( as families settled permanently in Germany) to the current DUS route.

Leon McQuaid, Head of Aviation Development at Newcastle International Airport, said: “We have received countless requests for services to be restored to Hurghada, Skiathos and Santorini, so we are extremely pleased that TUI is putting these routes on sale for summer 2020. As well as the three new routes, TUI has also added more flying days to some of its existing destinations including additional direct flights to Florida on its state-of-the-art Dreamliner. The fourth aircraft added by TUI has also added extra capacity to the likes of Antalya and Tenerife – showing the airline’s commitment to passenger demand and to creating additional jobs for the region.”

Good to see the additional TUI routes. Will they make it directly to HRG on a bad day?

Also, the Olympus SX-ABQ is still sitting at NCL after 4 weeks - must be costing them a small fortune, could have easily been wet leased over the next week or two.

It would appear more than “a bit” broken...

Maybe they don’t have the funds to repair it or something? Although I’d imagine they would’ve gotten a fair amount from TUI for all the work they did this summer.
