Isn't this 'telling us again" rather than 'announcing" , thought these were already on sale?

Ryanair will fly six new routes from Newcastle International Airport as part of its largest ever winter schedule from the North East. Sun seekers and city breakers are being offered flights to Barcelona, Cork, Bergamo, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and Riga. All destinations will see twice weekly flights using the airline's two aircraft that are permanently based at Newcastle.
Speaking to ChronicleLive, Jason McGuinness, Ryanair director of commercial, said: "The Newcastle team are exceptionally good and exceptionally proactive. Richard Knight and his team have done a great job and they're reaping the rewards in terms of the continuation of the Ryanair two base aircraft into winter. All through summer when we had lots of chaos at Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester etc - Newcastle performed exceptionally well, like ourselves. They run a very good, tight ship there."

Summer 2023 now on sale and starts with 3x weekly flights. That’s a good start hopefully more will follow.

G-TUIL operating today's flight after it positions in from Manchester. Great to see a 789 at Newcastle.

G-TUIA must be pretty sick


UPDATE original aircraft G-TUIA now being used

Point to note.....NCL pax figures reached 3,402,111 by the end of August. Probably won't top 5m but should come reasonably close......recovery going well.

I have to say I am enjoying travelling through Newcastle a lot more than I used to.

I've found security far more efficient - it works better when the queue is manned but I've not waited more than 5 minutes on several trips this summer and the car park ops are spot on. Even Border Force have been pretty efficient.

My only tiny criticisms:
  • There stil isn't quite enough seating around the terminal when all the charter bucket and spade flights head out.
  • The old WH Smith/Aspire entrance by the Gates - that whole area looks very dark shabby and would be nice as a quieter waiting area.
  • The same goes for gate corridors etc - just needs a bit of TLC I feel.
  • Shame the old arcade area went - the airport has had one for as long as I can remember - used to enjoy taking the grandkids in but looks no more! Would be nice for kids to have more to do (if I can peel away their tablets -which might be the problem)
  • I've had to queue for the toilets each time - another set may be handy! Space I guess may be an issue?

Great choice to be honest rather than a certain Peel owned facility imho.
