Also, remember that the business case based on which us taxpayers are supporting Teesside is to improve the regions connectivity to facilitate exports and inward investment, not to fund cheap holidays for Teessiders.

I imagine network carriers which would provide onward connectivity will not consider MME for new/increased service until they see perhaps 500,000 pax per year through the airport. This would show both substantial operational capacity and a desire for air travel from local residents (who are also the employees of exporters)

If MME wants flights that are *codeshared* with something in the Lufthansa, Norwegian or SAS groups, then maybe 10 short-haul leisure or migrant labour focussed routes need to come first.

Airtours left because of a company restructure/downsizing and Thomson left because of the MME market becoming overcrowded (bmibaby / Ryanair / FlyGlobespan's first route to TFS), if it was the lack of demand hinted at then the bases would not have lasted anywhere near as long as they did.

Standard procedure where possible is to go to the nearest engineering base

TUI's 787 operates from NCL 4x every 2 weeks with just the 2x on the alternative weeks , Thats a very good unchallenged long haul market they have here. They wont launch PUJ whilst they sell that many holidays to Cancun.

Easyjet went to Leeds?

Didn't Cancun replace PUJ at NCL?

Norwegian? and who would be the code-share operator? Any hub operation would need to take on a heavily entrenched KLM.

Should I have a list of these abreviations available for quick reference or is there any chance that destinations can have their actual names typed out fully so that us who not so clued up can understand ?.
Well said, that man.

Looking at it from the other end: Glasgow had a split load with Teesside, but still has service to the Dominican Republic!

Ok I see, you mean "It's not difficult" in the same sense as typing Glasgow is only a very tiny teeny weeny bit more difficult than typing GLA !!!!.

Stobart Air? They own Southend and are in partnership running MME.

The patient has been taken away from the source of injury but is still in intensive care. However much we may wish to dream, the patient remains in a fragile state and recovery is a long process
When I worked for British Midland at Tees Side in the mid seventies there were charters (on a schedule basis) to all over the place, Rimini, Teneriffe, Lanzarotte, Palma and a whole lot of the "usual suspects" for the bucket and spade market. As well as schedules to Heathrow, Amsterdam, Manchester, Cardiff, Bristiol, Norwich, Aberdeen and a few others lost to time.

Was kept very busy as a Traffic Officer every day.

Probably not the infrastructure there now to support it as a major diversion for airlines. I remember one winter when Tees Side managed to get a clear-ish runway when our BD062 arrived back from Heathrow, the word went out REALLY quickly and from about1045 to well past midnight we were almost stacking them on top of each other and calling off duty staff in. Probably couldn't cope with that now.

The lack of diversions is probably down to fire cover, as schedule/charter traffic returns this may mean more diversions from the likes of Easy/Ryan/Jet2 and others.

Superbreak

Looks like Superbreak have gone under. Were we still getting their ad-hoc charters throughout the year?

At least Superbreaks appear to be ATOL/ABTA protected...
