Titan have a reputation as expensive, but in a positive you-get-what-you-pay-for way. As said Enter Air will operate the flights

If they concentrate on the sub 100 seater business market then they could forge a nice wee niche for themselves. No chance for main holiday flights to return now though

There may still be a slim chance of main holidays. Flybe from DSA do a fair bit to Spain, so another small airport wouldn't be too out of place/ a nice niche to make here as well.

No chance of FR/LS/TCX/TOM though. with nearby LBA/NCL bases to contend with.

I can't believe how many people know so little about the owners of Durham Tees Valley Airport. Peel/John Whittaker are one of the most diverse and successful businesses in UK. You just need to look at their portfolio to see how Peel has been involved in so much of the investment in North of England over the last 30 years.

Peel/John Whittaker have been one of the biggest players in shopping centres since the 80's when the process of what became the Trafford Centre was started. Peel/John Whittaker have been involved UK airport ownership since 90's when they got involved with the ownership of Liverpool airport.

Peel/John Whittaker now own 3 commercial airports all based in North of England.
The 3 airports are spread across the Northern regions of England. Liverpool Airport(North West) Doncaster Sheffield Airport (Yorkshire and Humber) Durham Tees Valley Airport (North East) This makes them one of largest players in UK airport industry by the number of commercial airports owned in the UK.

Does know the reason/reasons why legs for the Flybe/Eastern airways Humberside / Durham Tees Valley flights aren't being offered for sale on Humberside / Durham Tees Valley / Aberdeen route?

The only demand would be for the oil/gas industry using the connecting helicopters. How many is that?

On the other hand, how much does it cost to put them up for sale? Don't think they'd need to sell many to cover the costs

Maybe Humberside is to close for flight to work with it only being around 2 hours by road.


I just thought with all the business/work links between the two areas it may have been worth trying to sell some seats on those flights considering the flights are already schedule to take place.

Because a seat sold between Humberside and Teesside is a seat you can't sell for much much more to Aberdeen?

I'd suggest only a hypothetical issue for Eastern...

If it is to be operated by a Saab 2000, even if the previous J41 flights were full (unlikely!) that still leaves 21 seats empty between Humberside & DTV. I can't imagine it's going to cost a whole lot extra to carry paying passengers on this leg? Even if they only pick up 4 or 5 it's going to cover costs surely

True!

I guess that for that distance you could also just get a taxi for what Eastern would want to charge, and that if you factor in even the shortest check-in time and starting off any distance all from the airport, the time penalty wouldn't be that high.

Press conference started about an hour ago, launching airport's new 'Flying for the Future' campaign. Perhaps also an update to the (2014?) strategic plan...?
