Strange that Teesside seems to be able to sustain 3 flights a day to Aberdeen (even with the Mayor's money and two operators on the route) and Newcastle is not. Clearly the Chemical and Oil/Gas industries are more evident in Teesside but Newcastle is a far larger market and the train still takes ages.

Aberdeen will be back once the demand picks up.

Seems to be a handful of student (?) flights in October and at Christmas - although mid-October seems a bit late for students?

EK have brought forward their re-start date. It was due to be 1st September. New flight times are so much better. They ,ay be re-editing the winter schedule which is why its not on sale. They are using STN flight times and flight number instead of the usual NCL EK35/36 times

It looks like Emirates have been updating their website over the past 24hrs - flights are bookable from 15 October, mainly four times a week but some weeks vary.

They are using STN flight times and flight number instead of the usual NCL EK35/36 times
EK033/034 were the old STN flight numbers when the service launched single daily in 2018 as an afternoon arrival/evening departure, with a long layover inbetween.

When it went double daily from July 2019 the new flight numbers became EK065/066 and EK067/068. They're showing STN from March 2022 with just the afternoon EK065/066 rotation.

EK033/034 hasn't been used since, and the NCL winter timings are not the same as the previous STN times, which was a 17:45 arrival (EK067) and 20:15 departure (EK068).

Any update on the A330F, it seems to have gone quiet and doesn't seem to be operating.

Several of us have put up a question about this and the new cargo operation which seemed to have started up........ but no-one seems to have any information.

On a different matter....with 36 departures on the board tomorrow, this must be the highest so far...with Jet2 using 7 a/c

The only info on the cargo op is that the aircraft that was parked here for a few weeks (9H-LFS) is being used out of Kiev to various destinations, so draw your conclusions from that. Cancelled or delayed ?
