Loganair are currently advertising for flight and cabin crew based at MME.

https://www.loganair.co.uk/about/careers/

I thought that the route would have been operated by ABZ based crews. Wonder if this could mean that Loganair are planning additional routes from MME in the future.

"Now recruiting Pilots and Cabin Crew for our new base in Durham Tees Valley"

Interesting that they are using the phrase "our new base".

No real difference from Easterns Base at MME though.
Why put crews up in hotels overnight when the aircraft is going to be night stopping/based at MME.
Good that they are showing commitment in advertising for based crews.

Any idea when the last F70 rotation through MME is?

They said in their first press release that they hope to add more routes, so I guess so!

Back to the Air UK days. Eastern operating NWI via MME to ABZ and return. Would this make sense in the future?

Eastern/Flybe

So the e-mail the airport sent out today was advertising the Eastern/Flybe route to Aberdeen and said that it would be on Saab 2000's.. looks like from 6th Nov the times change (very similar to Loganair departure times) so Saab 2000 from then?

Based on recent performance, anybody predicting what type will operate on which Eastern flight is a brave man!

Looks to me like the schedule isn't finalised yet. If it is it's very wasteful with a Saab 2000 operating to Aberdeen and back in a morning and evening, and a J41 operating up at 1000 and returning at 1600. Two aircraft based at DTV for 3 flights a day doesn't make any sort of sense

Certainly keeping my fingers crossed because I've just applied for cabin crew at MME with Loganair

Why do they state "a full clean driving license"?

I drive wagons with three points on mine, and no one cares a jot.

But did you actually have those three points on your license when you applied for your job, if you had well your application may have turned out differently that's how employers are these days, hiring squeaky clean employees plus I suspect driving wagons all day means that your not in the area of taking passengers or in a public domain hence your employers not caring 'a jot'.

Yes I had them when I started. I think you may be slightly missing the point though, how does having 0 points affect your ability to walk around a plane?

Seems an unusual comment to make, after all, I would suggest the thousands of members of the public I attempt to safely interact with on a daily basis would care very much about the quality of my driving ability ;-)

Looks as if T3 are planning on basing no aircraft at MME.

From the 6th November T3 will replace there current MME-ABZ and HUY-ABZ with a 3 x daily HUY-MME-ABZ service.

Was there a water arch for the first Loganair on Monday morning? Fire service looked to be in position when I passed.

Looking at fares ABZ-MME-HUY, it's easy to see which sector T3 are facing competition on!

SWBKCB arch was produced for the 11ish outbound, thought it would have been in the press by now. They actually managed a KLM diversion from Leeds about the same time.

The ATR-72 is still here for Eastern.

Hmm, an airport email advertised a Saab2000 on the route a couple of days ago

A post on the Eastern page seems to think the MME base has closed and HUY has a Saab2000 as its new based a/c. The revised route will be HUY - MME -ABZ using the S.2000.
