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.

This Morning's Loganair flight LM642 from ABZ has diverted to Newcastle after holding above MME for quite a while.
Eastern's similarly timed flight T3581 ABZ-MME has been cancelled. (ref:FR24 not listed on Airport page)
KLM diverted to LBA

KLM1533 from AMS has also diverted to LBA. Eastern must have thought it not
worthwhile operating an empty aircraft so cancelled the ABZ EZE581/582 rotation.

Eastern airways have most likely decided due to low visibility it is best to put passengers from the earlier flights on to the later flight.

Eastern airways has been using a ATR-72-600 with 72 seats instead of normal 29 seater BAe Jetstream 41 for this route. Because of this Eastern airways can accommodate this with ease.

I wonder what the thinking is behind the changes from 6th November.

This means Eastern Airways have merged two of their best selling routes to Aberdeen.

What does this mean for other eastern airways routes like the Leeds Bradford and Newcastle routes to Aberdeen which get less passengers? I wonder if they will be looking to merge or reduce or cancel those routes.

Easyjet

Can you believe a crew training session by an EasyJet A319 made the gazette website today!

Must be a slow news day in our region.

On another website it's sparked up the old debate of whether or not the income from the flight outweighs the cons of having the competition fly a massive billboard over the local towns

Both Loganair and Eastern's time keeping has been poor this last day or two. I can't see any reason for it, weather has not been an item. Last night Loganair placed an Saab 2000 on the route to help catch up. I think if you were a new airline on the route you would try and make a good impression to gain customers.

Our local travel agency have just advertised a direct charter flight to Seville for a 5 day trip departing in March 2018.

Hopefully its the first of many :-)

Seville

Yes, the Seville piece is mentioned on the Gazette website today. Talking about the first of many mini breaks offered by Super Breaks.

Good news!

Doesn't appear to be anything planned with Newmarket or Omega for 2018 though?

Airport management cancel next years airshow

Airport management have cancelled next years airshow. Usual rubbish from the spokesman.

Airshow organiser is gobsmacked!

More in the Echo about the airport using a "get out clause" in a 5 year contract to hold the airshow.

Sounds familiar. Peel used a similar clause to make councils give up more shares after 10 years.

You do wonder about Peel at times - whose bright idea was it to make the statement about the airshow on the same day as the "Super Breaks" announcement?

Did they really want them virtually next to each other on the Gazette's home page?

But surely the Seville announcement would have been co-ordinated with "Super Breaks", which could mean...
