If the agent has failed to deliver the service they agreed to provide in their contract, then the cost must sit with them?

August CAA stats:

Terminal passengers: 12,284 - up 11% v prior year
  • Aberdeen: 1,378 - down 15%
  • Amsterdam: 8,471 - down 5%
  • Jersey: 733 - up 41%
  • Burgas: 1,702 (new)
For the first time in nearly two years, Amsterdam shows a year-on-year decline, not helped by the KLM's annual service reduction during July & August (although I am not sure if there were fewer flights this year or not). Aberdeen is again still well down and shows no sign of improvement. Jersey up due to 5 departures in August compared to 4 last year but 73 pax per flight is strong on a 78 seater plane. Balkan Holidays should be pleased with Bourgas, 170 pax per flight looks good and is around a 95% load factor.

Rolling 12 month passengers: 145,461

In response to the concerns, a spokeswoman for Highways England said: “We have no plans to change the signs at present - and we have not been approached about doing so.”

The power of PPRuNe??
A spokeswoman for Highways England said: “Highways England is in discussions with Teesside Airport and the Tees Valley Combined Authority about the current signs which refer to the airport. “Because we would be replacing the current signs before their normal lifetime, we are working with the combined authority to take this work forward.”

Number Crunching...

quiet thread again at the moment so thought I would take another look at the Bold proposals and promises made by the new incumbents ,regarding passenger numbers.After all it was broadly based on these that the mayor managed to get the local councils to part with circa 40 million pounds of tax payers money?

2017. 128,000. Airport low point regarding passenger figures.
2018. 140,000. Competition on Aberdeen routes helped.
2019. 145,000. Projected...Mainly due to the Balkan effect and excellent KLM performance
2020. 150,000 Again projected..Balkan plus new Palma series.Little growth on KLM. Due Aircraft type and slot restraints at Amsterdam.Huge competition at the moment on Aberdeen from Newcastle.
2021. Assuming an extended Palma season and if it does well..maybe an Alicante ? KLM and Eastern little change..gives another projected figure of..say. 155,000 tops?

and so to 2022.Owners projected figures are 1 million. I leave you all to do the maths..but a bit like Brexit..there is a little bit of uncertainty I would suggest how that figure will reached?

I think the '1 million by 2022' is a mis-quote in the Gazette. The official view seems to be 10 years to get to a million.

Ahhh.the Gazette! That makes more sense! Still would need growth year on year of who knows..30% for 8 years?

A tall order without at least one major low cost carrier...trouble is they are few and far between now?

I seem to remember that 'W' patterns worked quite well for MME some time ago. In that respect would it offer a new selection of slots to use rather than a busier airport?

The Arriva bus service from Darlington might have returned to the airport terminal today instead of stopping along the old entrance road.

There seems to be only four services that run direct from Darlington, late afternoon and evening.

I suspect there is some press going on for the said bus service. An Arriva bus was airside this morning complete with camera crew.

MME-ABZ

Some slight timing changes for the mid morning and evening flights to Aberdeen from next week - also Thu/Fri just 2 daily flights in each direction. Sunday returns to being split with Humberside, but on the ATR72.

Is Loganair flying from Newcastle having any impact here? Although looking at fares for tomorrow on Eastern from here, still 243 for each flight! Lower fares for the rest of the week.

So Stobart launching a double daily Southend route from Newcastle has got to be a joke right?

Bring back Peel anyone?!

Stobart

As mentioned above, should we be worried that as a Stobart run airport, Stobart Air decided to fly from another Stobart owned airport to Newcastle? I believe when Stobart were announced as the partner, the inference was that as they owned Southend Airport too, that could be a route that was possible. I am not saying it would ever have been a successful route but surely it does not really inspire confidence in the airport.

Or were Flybe starting the Newcastle route before Loganair did?

Just shows how hard it’s going to be for the airport to attract any meaningful routes and services ?

Newcastle is an established airport with 5million plus passengers..TIA is ,yet again ,a relaunched airport in an area which needs so much help.Economically on the edge...

its probably a no brainier to most airlines..stick to the safe option? Airlines are a business and need to make money!


on another note...what is the latest with the Cobham's airport contract? Lots of talk earlier in the year re revised contracts..if they were to leave and take the 2 million plus annual contract (allegedly)with them,what would that do to the viability of the airport?


lots
