Airport is spending thousands resurfacing the derelict stand 13 where one of the clubs used to park and the alpha taxiway, must be something in the plans.

They are also advertising on one of the flight radar sites along with pricing for each route.

Has anyone heard anything official about what Easternís plans are for next year.

Feels very much like guesswork and hope that all routes will return but I have not seen any official announcements or communications from them or the airport. What is happening with London? City and Heathrow? Dublin and Cardiff? The summer runs to Spain?

Thanks.

The only thing Iíve been able to clear up is that London City wonít return as Eastern see Heathrow as the replacement. I guess most of us assumed that anyway.

So that's advertising on two platforms for one carrier? Trouble with advertising is it needs to be widespread and rammed down your throat

I know YouTube is tailored but that will hit much more than a flight radar site, predominantly viewed by enthusiasts. At least You tube has the ability to reach large audiences.
Robert Ryan it may be only two platforms that 'we' know of at the moment. Better than none!

Eastern will stay at LHR while they can, probably moving back to LCY when they lose access to the slots.

Its anyones guess with the other routes.

With the competition from Loganair Easterns original deal will probably be over unless Logan are getting the same deal!

Airport - mayor - government offices

Airport in the news. South side would be a good office location.

The airport should be aviation related industry. The Southside had an enforcement for aviation related industry in the planning, presume Ben will bulldoze through that.

I think it was only a percentage for aviation related activities. Don't want to be rude, but the southside of MME really is the back end of beyond. Is it really the best place for a substantial office development?

Also, as many govt. depts have banned domestic air travel it would look a bit odd if the Treasury were regulalry using the LHR flights to get to London, so that isn't really an advantage.

Or it could be the ideal place.
Not far from Middlesbrough, Darlington, Stockton etc, not to mention the top of North Yorkshire too, A66 and the A1. Has a rail line running past, any building would be more than likely leased so public money used to fund a public enterprise.
Yes the government does prefer higher car, pool car or rail travel over flying but there are situation where flying is permitted and having the airport there will save on taxis if it was else where.

The airport has a very strong argument for the new office.
Having said that their will be plus points for having it in Middlesbrough, Darlington or else where.

Does anyone know how far the South side development has got, and also is the new road in place?

Southside Offices - has it escaped everyone that the Covid pandemic has rapidly and very significantly impacted on the demand for office space? Working from home is here to stay, and no serious private developer is now interested in offices.

They built a portacabin office, built a new eight foot fence and drove a couple of diggers around. The mayor was seen using one of course. No sign of the new road from the A67.

You know this for sure then?
Yes working from home will be encouraged more but there is still the need for office space. Productivity is higher in the office overall in my line of work due to better opportunities for collaboration.
I know government are more interested in new builds so any move out of London will highly likely be into a new build where ever it is. Just look at the new regional centres in HMRC - some of the old offices had adequate space to become the regional centres but HMRC chose to have built band new facilities and the lease them.
So if they want it built a private developer will build it.

Twitter post from the airport suggests Eastern will be flying Belfast City and London Heathrow only.
Press release from The Northern Echo suggests nobody will fly MME-ABZ either

Maybe they are suggesting ABZ isn't a holiday destination? SOU not mentioned either.

As the aircraft seems to do SOU-BHD-MME and V.V. maybe this might become a thru service
