To try and be fair, the Echo was directly quoting the Mayor's comments and we all know he is very much a political animal, and his comments have to be treated as such.

Also, I'm sure a company in the same group as the Echo is responsible for some of the airports advertising.

I thought that the idea for the South side was to have at least some aircraft based industry. Aircraft maintenance, freight and maybe re-sprays. Office space might not be required now but in the future it might be wanted. Obviously a new link road is a priority which should give access to the A66/A19 and A1M.

The original plans 20 years ago were for aviation related units but that changed under Peel so I wouldn't like to say exactly what they are now.
The road access will go in, there has been a long running planning dispute but the last I heard the Southside will be connected directly with the A67. The link to the A66 is already there and has been for 15 years or so.

The percentage of aviation related activity in the planning permission has been reduced over the years - aviation related likely to be some sort of logistics? Moving TNT seems like an obvious opportunity. Didn't realise Amazons MME1 was soo near to the airport! And yes, the link road is to the A67.

I've not seen any mention of where exactly at the airport any Treasury offices would go - plenty of space northside?

If there's not 3 Amazon close to the airport there soon will be. The concern about offices is they are very similar to houses, could the offices eventually be built on the whole airfield.

Demand? Location? To be honest other than the mayor offering a cheap deal, can't understand why anybody would want to build offices on that site.

Do you have a link to some photos of the offices being built ?

There aren't any. The Tees Valley Combined Authority have put forward a proposal for the northern offices for the Treasury to be located on the airport, but nothing has been decided.

The mayor has posted a new video walkthrough of the terminal - looks quite good! It's available via his Facebook page - Ben Houchen Tees Valley Mayor.

Latest from KLM is a once a day return from 12th Feb through to the end of the winter timetable.

Return to 3 flights a day at the end of March (beginning of summer timetable).

There must be something else in the pot flight wise to fill in the staff rota.

Would suggest x3 daily from March is a tad optimistic!

Definitely, I would have thought it only appears as such because that's the default template, and closer to the time it will be revised back down to once daily. The best we can hope for this side of October is twice daily.

The performance of Amsterdam from 2022 onwards will reflect whether or not the suspicion of online meetings and in-general reduced business trips being a permanent side-effect are well founded or not.

Fear for Eastern in the weeks and months ahead. To me they donít seem to have a brand or fleet mix that is sustainable and Loganair probably sense this with the duplication of routes announced recently out of MME. With BE mk2 muted to be reborn, this could also have a significant impact on their future viability

It was always quicksand and I fear...it won’t be the end as the mayor is throwing good money after bad?

Most sensible and unbiased folks on here..we’re always sceptical.

However..housing estate,government offices and other genuine revenue incomes,Can and will save the area.
