Not seen anything mentioned anywhere. Several of the Aberdeen flights next week are in the second fare band, and with small amounts of seats left on them too. If you play around with the Eastern site you can work out how many seats are available at what fare but the cheapest level generally seems to be 6 on ABZ and 10 on everything else. Some LCY flights are in band 2 also.
Incidentally yesterday’s southbound LCY was used as a charter for Middlesbrough FC as was today’s northbound which is why they couldn’t be booked. Photos on the Airport FB of them leaving yesterday.

Game was yesterday afternoon and they actually won and didn't get a 5,0 thrashing like Newcastle.

If Joe knew the flight existed he and the public might just book, the plane hasn't even got the company name on so all the launch publicity looses a fair percentage. Is it against the lease to place a sticker down the fuselage.

Who needs a sticker on the a/c when you've got Ben for publicity? Would that really make a difference?

I reckon they're more interested in Ben's wallet

He's just ME ME. A sticker works. Easy jet training was seen by a large number on Teesside were as a white plane with a red tail is nothing.

There was mention on here of CDKB coming back from Orebro after a C check. This one is fully branded so perhaps would be the 'full time' aircraft? KA was meant to go to Orebro today but hasn't as far as I can tell. EB is currently the only active one.

There is mention on here that the Saab 2000 is being phased out and being replaced with more ATR's. Sadly there are not many Saab 2000 as passenger planes left

Eastern are starting to load the winter schedule, but not much is on sale from Teesside yet. Good news that Newquay has been kept and will run twice weekly to the current schedule right throughout the winter season. Must have started reasonably well. Belfast is the only other route on sale a trip present, which stays 6x weekly. London City is increasing to twice daily from 7th September. Dublin confirmed to start on 28th August, and Alicante on 14th August but only 5 dates on sale. Eastern have confirmed a 2021 schedule will be confirmed shortly. Jersey appears to be on sale from the start of September only running for 3 weeks...

FLIGHTS to Alicante, Spain, will be taking off this summer for the first time in nine years, Teesside Airport has announced - and they go on sale today.

Weekly return flights, run by Eastern Airways, will be taking off on Friday August 14 through until September 7, meaning that holidaymakers can once again get some summer sun from their local airport following the lifting of certain travel restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic
Old news surely?

As to whether it'll be successful with only 4 weeks of departures who knows... fares have been dropped to start at £69.99 each way too I notice, which is less than what they were selling for last week. It'll be interesting to see whether they are successful and lead to a wider program next year.

Saab 2000 been added to this weekends Newquay departures on Friday & Monday to provide extra capacity according to the Airport facebook (& backed up by Eastern's site). Due to strong bookings, which is a good sign. This weekend is of course the start of the school holidays. The other one (CDKA) has just arrived from Aberdeen.

Drive-in concerts which were due to take place at Teesside Airport have been cancelled following "concerns" over local coronavirus lockdowns.

Talking Movements

Teesside was the 14th busiest airport in the country based on movements in May!

I wonder if the latest quarantine news essentially means no Alicante or Palma for the remainder of this short season?

Horrendous times for holiday companies, tourists and airports to plan anything....

I would think that will be the end of both for this year unfortunately, just like Bourgas was also blanket cancelled eventually.
