I wouldn’t have thought so. Stobart have been looking to place the 195s for several months. Negotiations would take weeks rather than days, I suspect.

It looks nailed on that Durham Tees Valley Airport is to be nationalised on Thursday, with Stobart the strongly rumoured new operator. How close are Stobart Aviation Group with Stobart Air? I would imagine one would bring the other with it?

You never know, for all we know, Stobart could also end up doing wet lease on the Durham Tees Valley Airport to Amsterdam flights.

It didn't at Carlisle. I suppose it depends on how much money they have to spend.

At Carlisle they've managed to build themselves a new warehouse and office building in green belt land, re-built the runway but treated the resident operators abysmally and haven't actually provided the promised airline services.

At Southend they spent big (very big!) and have attracted some big name operators, but in one of the bigggest, most capacity constrained aviation markets in the world.

Which example will most reflect the MME experience? Be interesting to see if the nature of the deal struck by the mayor is made public.

Given the need to keep SEN expanding, get CAX up and running, deal with the Tinkler case, be involved in the Flybe venture, there's never going to be a dull moment in Stobart Towers!

Teeside does look attractive for at least more feeder flights and it will be interesting what happens there.

I don't think so as I first heard about the KLM E195 deal six weeks ago.

I suppose they could start a three times daily Teesside-Southend money spinning service!

Was always quite surprised how well ork/sou performed - would have thought a drop in frequency would have been more appropriate unless other factors are at play.

Maybe it's just moving over to the Flybe side of things? That could possibly mean that ORK could return to a 2 aircraft operation if they jig the SNN W's with Dublin?

Still, nothing surprises me. The way they managed and subsequently killed off the NCL/ORK route they are first class at shooting themselves in the foot.

I don't what routes will be operated but EI-GGA (ex G-FBEL) departed SEN for AMS this afternoon to commence its lease to KLM in an all white 'colour' scheme.
