Another 737-700 en route for Willis. Looks to be a Fiji Airways aircraft and is currently flying in from Bangor, Maine. Originating in Fiji, it has stopped in both Hawaii and Los Angeles.

Booking tool reverts to 3 x daily from January, but as you describe until then.

This in itself is a change from a couple of weeks ago which showed 2 x daily from Jan back then.

Really good news about Cobham signing a new long term deal with the MOD keeping them at Teesside.

Anybody know what the contract referred to is? Can't find any reference to it other than in Teesside's press release, which is now been picked up/copied by sites such as the above?

KLM

Not sure if it is a glitch on the website, but KLM unavailable to book from 7th October until 23rd November.

Why all the postings about Middleton St. George/Teesside? It is such a small airport, after all. Perhaps you folk are enthusiastic about having an airport near you. Fair enough, enjoy.

I can see the same. Suspect it isnít a glitch, what small international demand there is, well, itís pretty much evaporating and can be absorbed through Newcastle. Maybe even the LHR is having an impact.

I havenít been able to get abroad with work since Jan and itís killing me. At the same time, not sure I want to be going anyway either...a weird feeling.

The Teesside thread is one of the best at present. Posters are well-informed, enthusiastic and overwhelmingly positive. This is backed up by the local mayor who believes in the economic benefits that air travel can bring. Iím sure those in the catchments of Humberside, Norwich and Leeds - and others, must wish their threads were as active, despite the dreadful times in which we live.

KLM

Not looking good for Amsterdam, no flights till January 2021 now and I guess that might be reviewed closer to the time. Inverness also seems to lose their KLM flights, apart from a few around Christmas - Newcastle at one point did have the KLM evening flight that was coming here from the winter timetable, but that seems to have gone too, so just the 2 flights a day from Newcastle, and 1 a day from Leeds.

NCL seems to be 3 x daily in December, 2 x 738, 1 x 73G, with the late afternoon/evening flight reinstated

LBA-AMS back to 2x daily E190 from November 23rd and 3x daily from January.
Also Jet2 on the route with 4x weekly B738 from October 22nd, increases to 8x weekly November 2nd (using mix of B733/B738)

Wonder if the Heathrow service is now eating away at the long established KLM route? Not the outcome the mayor wanted?
It’s a small market now everywhere..and getting smaller by the day?

One thing is certain is it canít be helping. How much of an impact is up for debate. Will be interesting to see the LHR stats for Sep.

I would imagine that most of the money on the AMS route is generated by Star Alliance members, so maybe not that big effect while there is no alliance tie up for the LHR route.

Mind you, difficult times so as others have said, can't help to split a small market.

Or even Skyteam members . But I think you are correct, future bookings for 2020 must be dire and I guess KLM know that if Teessiders need to travel for work, there are no alternative operators at MME and LBA/NCL have alternative KLM services.
