What was wrong with my reply? It was a tongue in cheek insinuation that it was more likely to be someone like Enter Air or Albastar than BA Cityflyer or Titan... Won't be lucrative enough

Some people need a sense of humour

Why wouldn't be lucrative enough for Titan Airways? I doubt the contract is just 1 flight but probably for the whole series of flights from quite a lot of UK regional airports and maybe the flights to Seville that they will be doing in March from quite a lot of regional airports as well. Surely Titan Airways as a charter airline would be interested in work like that?

Titan Airways as a charter airline would be interested in work like that, yeah but I don't think they are the cheapest out there especially for this type of work that tends to go to the likes of Albastar, Enter Air, Small Planet, etc.

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

Teesside Mayor - talks with Peel

Quote "Talks are fragile".

I bet the airport management didn't even offer to pay his car parking fee

Recap as Ben Houchen discusses Teesside vs Tees Valley, airport and life after Brexit - Gazette Live

He's got two Hopes of taking the land back into public ownership, and one is Bob.
Peel are laughing all the way to the bank after picking up 800 acres for 500k.

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.

Owner of DTVA - 413 companies

Was surprised to see how many other companies the owner of DTVA operates.
He even has a pet products company!
413 appointments. Someone must have a full time job making up the company names.
The Cronkdean name takes some beating He's moving into shopping centres in a big way. Maybe thats what he's got planned for DTVA as there doesn't appear to be much in the way of holiday flights.
Wonder how much tax he pays each year?

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
