Shame as the car parking charges at the hotel are about 1/3 of what it costs to park in the main car park.

Having said that, I donít know how many times I have tried to call the hotel to pre-book my parking and they donít pick up or donít know how to take a credit card payment over the phone.

This surely can't come as a surprise to anyone who has visited this millenium. Stayed there last year and whilst friendly, clean and accommodating, it is very dated and the paucity of other guests left you with a very strange feeling.

I have followed quite a few coaches in to the Airport going to the George hotel over the last few years
looks like they use the George as a stop off for touring coaches

MP suggests hotel staff are kept on by Peel

MP has suggested that the hotel staff are kept on by Peel. - Peel - no comment.
Whats the betting the housing estate plans change to add a few more houses where the hotel stands. Peel will probably build right up to the edge of the main car park which will become smaller
Councillors will probably know more!
Any news on the new houses from the Peel insiders on here?

Eastern/Flybe

Such a shame Loganair stopped their service to Aberdeen, the reliability of the Eastern/Flybe services is appalling, 2 out of the 3 flights from Aberdeen cancelled today - wonder how Flybe view all these cancellations and delays? The passenger figures will drop again to the 1100 odd per month before Loganair came on the scene and doubled the number of passengers on the route.

I suspect they'd be back if Eastern disappeared. Trouble is that many of the smaller routes aren't worth an expensive fight over until one or the other prevails.

Possibly due to the bad weather and workers mainly come home on a Friday afternoon.

Anyone heard anything from Sycamore Aviation recently? Unless I've missed it, it must have been a while since I heard of an aircraft coming in to be parted out.

Hope they're doing ok!

They appear to be doing well in America on their twitter page. Good luck to them.

Thanks for the update on the US operation but, as the posted asked, how are they doing at MME. Are they still alive?

I think as an active tenant they've moved out, but from what I'm told if they won any European contracts they would return for the duration of said contract. Not sure how accurate that is though

Almost another month gone by and all's quiet, nothing from the mayor, Peel or any development be it houses, roads or hangars. On the up shall we say we gained the JP from Newcastle, they supposedly didn't want it, but hangarage, fuel and fees make money.

Word in the village is that this plan is about to change. More house on the hotel site maybe?

Might DTVA get some cargo flights when a major online retailer opens a warehouse at Morton Park Darlington in 2019

Interesting possibility. No 'interesting' one-offs I would guess, as their supply and dist chains will be well-established. But it will definitely result in greater numbers of DHL, UPS, or whoever they use, parcels emanating from the Teesside area. Making a nightly flight viable? A possibility I would say.

We already have numerous car spares factories and they produce nothing. On the other hand when TNT cargo was operating they occasionally had two aircraft so there was some demand there.
