I do feel that NCL is on a roll at the minute! I hope it keeps up.
Sadly, NCL has found itself firmly in the new inbound EDI catchment.

Never used to be and no reason why it should remain that way…

Its the 'inbound' factor here. Edinburgh has grown on the back of the higher international profile that being a capital city / seat of government has given it. This has given the impetus to open routes to Edinburgh and they will undoubtedly have sucked some of the oxygen from route development at NCL.

On a different scale NCL suffers with EDI in the same way BHX suffers from the scale of MAN.

Can you expand? What's an inbound catchment would be a good start

Catchment clearly doesn't apply so much when talking about inbound leisure travel, where the priority is how far you need to travel to the departure airport. If it wasn't nobody in their right mind would fly to Melbourne (MLB) to visit Orlando theme parks!

What's more, a case could be made for making the drive through the borders to reach a final destination ariund, say, Hexham part of a holiday.

Perhaps turning your question around, if EDI wasn't drawing otherwise NCL destined business, why doesn't NCL hoover up more inbound business. After all the Newcastle hinterland and Scottish Borders have so much commending them for an inbound tourist.

EDI also is a starting point for the Highlands - I'll bet 75% of foreign tourists go north and west rather than south and east from Edinburgh.

It has a world wide reputation that Newcastle (and Glasgow) don't

It has the various Festivals as well

Plus it's the Capital of Scotland

Interestingly, Northumberland benefits from 'northwestwards drift' from the ferry terminal at North Shields. I work at a heritage site in Northumberland, and our second-biggest foreign nationality is Dutch - quite a few of them popping in on their way to Scotland from Shields. I've often considered how a Benelux-Rosyth or Leith ferry service could blow a hole in our visitor numbers.

Controller training should be completed in the coming months - it's a long process.

As said before, it takes time. Try a Licenced Engineer. Even longer, years longer.

Interestingly EDI losing TUI longhaul in Summer 24 in addition to BRS.......so there might be downward drift of pax to NCL from EDI or Westwards to GLA for TUI longhaul flights, TUI concentrating on 5 long haul routes and Ad Hoc flights.

cr. SEAN M

I also note that LM have put back the expansion to 3 daily to SOU from 29th May to 17th July.

I think TUI longhaul out of Edinburgh will be mopped up by Virgin and the various other transatlantic options from Edinburgh.
