no never only neighbouring airports have been given these.
Who paid for the new approach road etc? MME receives/has available the same level of public money as other local airports

i maybe putting two and two together and getting five, but David Cameron was on Teesside on Friday and was photographed in Marton. The gazette talks about 3 cars including 2 Landrover/range rovers. The flight came in from Newquay too where DC has a home. So, to answer my own question, I'm thinking it was our ex-PM.

P330 that would be Peasant then, local elected mayor was probably sniffing around too then.

From the gazette "He asked 'can you buy a tea here'?

"I said 'no sorry sir, but can I make one for you'?

"He said he was in a bit of a rush.

"His wife only came to the door but his two kids came in, a girl and a boy and he was shouting to them to go back into the car.

"He picked up some crisps, chocolate and Tic Tacs for his daughter."

Dhurai told him his was from India and asked if he had met the Indian PM Narendra Modi.

"He said yes, he'd met him in Mumbai and Parliament.

Indeed a strange choice of words, the flights have been split fairly evenly between both airports since they started (anyone know the thinking behind this, you would think they would choose one or the other)

Come on. Most ..if not all cargo flights for a well known local car maker have always operated through Newcastle..check the records guys... last 25 years...or whatever..all I am saying is that in the last couple of months..75 per cent ish have operated through MME...most that haven’t..have been when the airport is closed.. its an observation...onwards and upwards! Nothing sinister..sorry..just blowing a trumpet which hasn’t happened for years..

London flights by Eastern

Eastern have chosen Newcastle Airport for flights to London City Airport.

Shame Peel didn't make DTV attractive for the London connection. No doubt Robert Hough will put a new Master Plan spin on it?

NCL has picked up an LCY flight as Eastern already fly LCY-ABZ but will now stop off at NCL on the way.

Would be fantastic for MME to get a London flight but once again facts get in the way of a Beefer post.

(Am I the only one to find that head banging emoji annoying?)

It didn't work last time they tried it, wonder if they have been given an incentive.

MME-LCY would actually be better and more useful than NCL-LCY in my opinion, but as both would be doomed to fail itís irrelevant. The other point to consider is that itís actually a vote of confidence in MME, because these flights would have been instead of rather than in addition to the existing ABZ schedule. That would have left MME with a reduced service with flights at less-than-optimum times.

Love your positive spin AirportPlanner1.

I am very surprised that to this day MME hasn't secured a London service when you see the likes of Exeter managing to keep one going. However, I think that a London service will only be self-sustaining if it can act as a feeder on to a hub network. Point to point and business traffic is surely too slim?

i think this exactly the problem when there are direct trains to London every 30 minutes from Darlington. LCY, LTN, STD flights would only be for point to point traffic. LGW is still leisure focused and if BA (or someone offering a BA codeshare) canít make MAN-LGW or NCL-LGW stack up then there probably isnít a business case for MME.

LHR world probably work fine but not when slots go for $30m a pair.

Beafer as per usual your inflammatory post is way off the mark. Peel will have reached the same conclusions as everyone else who has replied to you, regardless of this they will still have spoken to and continue to speak to all eligible airlines for this and other routes, but routes need to be both sustainable and profitable. Even if LCY was both of those things, Peel would probably then wonder why they should trust an airline with Easterns current reliability record.

A lot of emotions and views on this site..probably more than any other.

people genuinely care..even the doom merchants.
Most don’t have blinkers others do..it’s called democracy!

facts are..for years the airport has been treading water...passengers down,movements massively down. check the DTV movements site and pick almost any historical date and compare with same today..sad.

We all have answers..where is the Mayor when you need him? Where are the silent owners.

please ..what is actually happening here because most of us are clueless...

How long will Peel cover the losses shown in the latest account?
