Third aircraft would be fantastic, letís see. I hope Ryanair are looking at onboard spend because Geordies spend onboard like nobody else.

I wonder if Riga will come back, fares were always quite low from what I saw and it is a long-ish route. Fingers crossed, itís nice to have a bit diversity.

A return of Madrid, Warsaw and Cork would be top of my wish list if we are in for any new routes. Closely followed by a couple of either Rome, Venice, Budapest, Pisa, Berlin, Hamburg, Brussels or Valencia. A bit of competition on a Greek island or two, maybe Corfu or Rhodes, wouldnít go amiss either.

Ryanair have potential at NCL, and they will make money. We just have to convince them to stay, because as we know, there is always *more* money elsewhere. But there is still money to be made out of NCL.

I would really like to see NCL-STN come back as well
Looking at programme loaded, it is still a 2 aircraft base with no new routes (though thereís still time) and FAO, RIX and SNN not yet loaded.

Some frequency increases:
ALC 9x wk
DUB 10x wk
BCN 3x wk
PMI 6x wk
WRO/CHQ/IBZ/ZAD/KRK/GDN/FUE/LPA/TFS/ACE all 2x wk
BGY 4x wk
AGP 3x wk

Based aircraft seems to fly a mixture of all destinations, with exception of BCN, ACE and ZAD which are purely non based aircraft.

Not sure how all this compares to Summer 23.

S24 does look like a capacity increase overall at NCL with extra based aircraft from TUI and increase in frequency from SunExpress and new flights by Southwind.

Ryanair seems to have put all the Summer 24 flights on the timetable now from June onwards. Riga and Shannon have gone but the Polish routes are all back and Faro?? The big question is whether there will be any new routes to be announced.

They canít be finished yet. Iím sure weíll be seeing Faro back. Very shocked if not. Plus they need to sort April and May out. Give it a few days or weeks and itíll all come out in the wash Iím sure

Don't have the App, but BGY is on the website for next summer - apart from May and June as noted above.

thanks. Just has a look - no good for May half term. Appreciate they may come later. TUI are usually rubbish for October half term from
NCL (finishing flights early) only Jet2 seem apply some regional sense!

From the TUI thread, looks like NCL will get 3 based 737MAX and 2 737-800, as well as the already mentioned partially based 788. Additional flights by Freebird again and Albastar for next summer, itís quite an increase in capacity.

Also noticed EI have not yet put BHD on sale, DUB remains daily.

Half-term varies across the country - and it's only a week - no airline is going to build it's timetables around that - many have enough problems with 6-7 week school summer holidays which vary from June into September across the UK

I've always assumed that the weeks between the end of the summer school holidays and the October break are filled by the many people who don't have school-age children and can take advantage of the lower prices. Most of the population in fact.

Semi charter service on behalf of Holiday Best. Coincidentally, Holiday Best originally were selling 4 weekly services to Turkey shown as operated by Southwind, however these have now decreased to just 1 AYT service.

Ryanair seems to have fully loaded their S24 schedule, with exception of FAO. The 2 based aircraft are fully utilised looking at the schedules, RIX and SNN appear to have been terminated.

TUI also scheduled to use Freebird again for a few of their services to DLM/AYT, with AlbaStar also listed as operating a weekly flight.

NCL traffic seems to be building up again, with increases from LS, TUI and FR. I seem to recall levels of 7 million passengers a year at one point in NCL history, have we surpassed that?

So it looks like Saudia will be sponsoring NUFC more closely, maybe even introducing a route into Newcastle, which I do not think will be sustainable.

How do we know FAO just hasn't been loaded yet and isn't terminated? FAO appears to be loaded for some other UK airports such as BHX and EMA....

Newcastle Airport wins Best Airport under 5 Million Passenger at Routes World Conference in Istanbul.

Massive achievement, and was the only UK airport nominated. This award is voted for by airlines themselves which shows how much respect they have for the team and the opportunity at Newcastle
