I would put a large wager on just that. IF, and it's an extremely large "if" three A330s were acquired then you'd find then based at STN, and / or perhaps EMA. That's not to day there isn't the intention to offer some direct services from NCL. The sad fact is however that the air cargo industry believes that there are only a handful of airports in the UK, and by and large NCL isn't one of them!

can see where you are coming from however, management/company seem to be north east based. EK brought in quite a bit on a daily basis but their ops put back till Nov at earliest. Would think companies would prefer a dedicated cargo flight than trying to get space on a passenger flight. More goods moved around the world and people do not want to wait weeks anymore. 3 flights a week may be optimistic but surely they will have done their homework. Here’s hoping it goes well to them.

southside bobby

The company has a Stockton address so possibly already poached from Teesside, the rumoured cargo also seems to come from Teesside.

If any aviation business starting up in the north east isn't talking to Teesside, they want their lumps feeling. However, does MME have the facilities for a general cargo service of any size, for example, where do you consolidate or break down the load?

EK use DXB as a hub for the whole of the Far East, this operation appears to be very much HKG / DXB focussed. I'm sure they've got a core client or clients but will be relying on the air freight industry to fill up the rest of the capacity, and in a world that believes the UK begins and ends in London that ain't going to be easy. Even EMA only has weekly connection from PEK over Russia and that is basically a DHL operation.

I really admire business people for trying to move the centre of the universe from London, but going back into history, Pelican Air Cargo had a similar issue with getting business through Manchester.

Nice to see the increased number of flights departing from NCL just now.

Still a long way from Pre Covid days but steadily increasing.
