Freight flts

I have noticed a number of large freight planes coming out of Doncaster and heading south in recent months.

Is their a regular freight schedule or are they only ad hoc ?

Thanks.

LA can you give me the figures for the catchment areas of MME NCL and LBA please. Just would like to know what figures you are using to back up you statement above.

Can anyone advise what the Antonovs to and from Sweden are hauling? Car parts? They provide some lovely sound effects over North Yorkshire, as well as some intriguing routings.

I would have thought its car parts going to Sweden.

Also losses are up at the airport.

Taken in the context of Peel's operations as a whole it's not a huge amount. Peel obviously sees a future in DSA, hence the investment, advertising and sponsorship. The losses are accompanied by increased passenger numbers. Obvioulsy such losses are unsustainable year-on-year but as they are pre-tax I imagine that they may be offset against taxes on Peel's profitable operations.

Must admit that was my fear a few years ago, but I can't see DSA ending up like Sheffield City given the investment, the growth of the nearby iPort, the publicly-funded link road, the new Amazon base, the planned business park, new freight facilities etc. I'm sure there will still be an airport there in 10-15 years time, even if passenger operations are scaled back. Even if the tonnage shifted is still very small compared to eg EMA, DSA is indeed well situated for freight and logistics

I'm thrilled the airport is doing better at freight, it just needs a few more passenger routes, especially in winter season, keep the routes and the airport will be around for many more years to come.

The one thing that still gets me is the lack of knowledge from locals that we have an airport and where the airlines fly to. Its still not good enough.

The proposed Vulcan hangar and visitor centre now has planning permission.

Still waiting on confirmation of plans from UoS on the AMRC proposed maintenance hangar.

Final phase of the link road is nearly complete, however no idea if the Carillon fiasco will affect its completion.

Reference the final piece of the link road the council has commented as below.

Peter Dale, the council’s director of regeneration and environment, said: ‘The scheme is at an advanced stage of delivery and is due for completion in April 2018.

‘We are currently working with Carillion staff and the receiver PricewaterhouseCooopers who are seeking to move forward and honour existing contracts. We are also working with Tarmac to look at contingency plans if Carillion are unable to continue with the work.

‘As such, we are hopeful that the project can continue with minimal impact.’

Credit to the eysource.

Withdrawn Etihad A340-600 A6-EHJ positioned Abu Dhabi – Bournemouth this morning (17/01) as EY9013 where it will be taken up by 2Excel Aviation.

Interesting to watch 2Excel's operations evolve, as the recently acquired 737 has been at DSA. Presumably the A340 will be based at STN also, but will move around the bases.

The Sheffield Star conducted an interview with Mr Gill yesterday and there was mention of a really big announcement coming at the end of March.

Sounds interesting.

Thought the big announcement was the new master plan?

Anyone managed to suss out if the 2018/19 Flybe winter schedule entails less routes or frequencies at DSA?

PAX figures are always very late but so far we're seeing a slight fall in PAX this winter when compared to last winter, presumably due to marginally fewer routes
