Newcastle-10

Newcastle Airport is working in collaboration with two local COVID-19 testing companies to provide quick and affordable tests to passengers travelling from the Airport. The North East’s largest airport has joined forces with Newcastle based companies NPH Group and MDNA Life Sciences to provide COVID-19 PCR tests and when possible rapid antigen and antibody tests.

Many destinations now require passengers to provide a negative PCR COVID-19 test and it is hoped the newly formed service will provide passengers with a cost effective, reliable and convenient COVID-19 testing service prior to their travels. The COVID-19 tests facilitated by NPH Group are able to book now and passengers will be able to attend the testing facility at Newcastle Airport from Tuesday 1st December. Prices are set by the testing providers and the PCR test will cost 99.00.

A quick look at the Jet2 Summer 22 timetable shows that ALMERIA, PISA and ROME are missing destinations.....this could change of course.

EASYJET.....no one seems to have taken up BARCELONA....which surprises me

i think nobody will pick Barcelona up just yet until demand picks up and travel restrictions are over to many risks at the minute.

have Easyjet said anything about there new summer only AGP,FAO bases the planes will fly too?

some rumours are that ncl will be on that list

Jet2 hasn't loaded ALMERIA, PISA and ROME flights for Summer 22 from any airport yet.

When normality returns, Barcelona might figure in the IBERIA EXPRESS plans for NCL operations

Iberia Express don't even fly out of BCN so would consider that unlikely. Most likely one for Ryanair I'd say.

If it were IAG, and it were BCN - then it would be Vueling.

EasyJet have a Barcelona base. It is possible that they could do it in reverse when things settle down, just don’t take too big a cabin bag.

I would expect flights to continue through NCL in the future, albeit operating triangles such as BFS - NCL - ALC. or flights originating from our PMI, NCE, FAO and AGP bases. Several of my colleagues who’ve transferred to BRS have done their first flights.....to NCL😖

I think you are right. There is big cruise buisness out of Barcelona and Split (one of the cruise companies was underwriting a number of seats on the Split route) so it would be reasonable to expect these to reappear once the cruise market picks up.

Funny you mentioned that, one of my colleauges had said the skipper on one of the BRS flights was operating his first flight in 6 months and it was back to his home base a nice kick in the nads from EZY there . Such a massive shame.

Yes he did. Like the majority of ex-NCL EZY guys, I'm not due to start operating again until April. In the meantime, I'm sure you can appreciate that it wouldn't be a good move for me to publicly express my opinion on such matters.

The good news on the new giga-battery factory at Blyth will prove to be good news for the airport....transport facilities was one of the main reasons for the choice.

Looking forward to NCL ramping up again as I know a few people that jobs depend on it (and if getting worse, my own)

Anything that improves the economy of the region is good for the airport.

8,000 new jobs is more potential customers.

Track shows it coming from Toulouse, has done an overshoot and making another approach.

Diversion from EMA according to FR24, was a very brief stop after a few circuits.
