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.

News

Could it be the possible link between Heathrow and DTVA in this news report, or are they planning more houses?

Peel announcement? More houses vicar?

Haven't seen anything in the press but I'll bet its to do with more houses being built.
Peel will do it there way as its their airport now with 89% of the shares.
Maybe they have another special clause in the original airport sale contract which will give them 100% of the shares after 15 years?

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...?

A little underwhelming as I too hoped for new routes, I was starting to think my co-workers had got it wrong, though they're still adamant they're coming and even the bosses at the press event today were not shying away from dropping strong hints

Amazing new website launched as well today Durham Tees Valley Airport ? Flying for the future

The PDF puts Beafer back down in the ground where he belongs, sorry pal but Peel are committed owners whether you like it or not

Heavy bed time reading for all!!
Some impressive graphics and text!!

As expected many of the forecasts are out of date already..it’s amazing the progress some airports have made in the last 12 months.Think that portion needs updating.
However on the whole it’s a pretty good document and web site.
Now as always the proof of the pudding.....

I would argue the document addresses that sufficiently, and my understanding is it's only been created in the last few weeks so out of date it most definitely is not.

What is it todays kids say? "Haters gonna hate..."

And the value was set by the local authorities at the time.
Airports are renowned for their large capital expenditure requirements. At DTVA, The Peel Group has invested in:
– Fire vehicles – Airfield resurfacing – Air traffic control radar enhancements – X-ray security equipment – Car park extensions and surfacing
This list is far from exhaustive. In addition to 26 million in capital investment, much of which is not necessarily obvious to the travelling public, the business has borne the entirety of the annualised financial losses creating an investment of over 36 million, relieving the local authority and taxpayer of this burden.
They definitely read this forum!

Out of date example,only used Newcastle as nearest but forecasting today’s passenger figures as being reached in 2030!! Assume other airport figures are out.
DTV shows around 200k. While real time is down at 1972 levels 130 k. Ish...and the recent CAA stats for August and September make pretty depressing reading.

Just an example as I say ..I’m sure the majority is factually correct if it’s just been completed.

Ah Robert, or should that be Mr Hough! That a sounded like the usual Peel diatribe being posted on behalf of Peel.

Read the last part of this page. The Peelers do make me laugh with statements about supporting 600 jobs, and providing 37m to the Teesside economy.
Usual rubbish Robert

Meanwhile Whitty has just pocked another 16m from his Intu shares.
Where did the BMI compensation money go?? DTVA account or Peel accounts?

The Mayor does have a valid point in that Peel have sold the airport before.
