Recent investment in freight at Newcastle from April this year

NCL's FedEx service has also grown from ATR-72 to B.738F recently
No covid anymore. The aircraft I believe is based at NCL but it goes to CDG for FEDEX and I wager it does a couple of UK stops on the way. I only see one or two pallets ever. CDG is the hub for FEDEX European ops.

No UK tour for the FedEx 737-800 as it flies first to Liege, then Paris CDG and finally Cologne before returning to Newcastle. And to think it all started with an ATR-42 based in Glasgow which dropped into Newcastle in both directions just on its way to Paris CDG.

Think it was a EMB-120 originally on the GLA-NCL-CDG

Good to see Aegean have added flights to Athens over the Xmas period, seems to be a popular flight.

Quite a selective bunch, Conde Nast travellers - they obviously haven't been to North Ronaldsay
Joking aside, good to see NCL on a list that we want to be on.

It's B744 of ATLAS AIR due in from New York at 2111......almost certainly carrying NUFC home.

Good news indeed...up to 5 x daily....especially as it goes against the constant cutting of slots at Schipol. Must be a profitable route for KLM

As usual, intersting use of the word 'new' - this is a restoration to 5. Hasn't it been up to 6?

​​​​​Think some journalists need to understand the difference between a divert and a tech stop

Has Newcastle fitted new scanners or do you still need your clear plastic bags for security.

odd that TUI NCL-Cancun 788 did a fuel stop in GLA ?
stop press:
Unfortunately, due to weather conditions at Newcastle Airport affecting the performance of the aircraft, the flight was forced to make a stop at Glasgow in order to pick additional fuel for the onward journey.
