Well the potholes have now got their own potholes, come the first sniff of ice the roads start self gritting as the surface breaks down, but I wouldn’t expect it to improve anytime soon, the Airport headquarters building has a bloody great hole in one end through the outer wall and I’m talking feet wise, it’s falling apart, which doesn’t exactly hint at any spending anytime soon.

Does anyone know what the status is with the new UPS facility? I have heard it is due to open soon but not sure when. Is there any idea what sort of changes may happen to the UPS route network from EMA maybe we will see routes from Louisville? one of the new stands is marked for a 747 so will we maybe see some UPS aircraft other than the 767s?

think the open date is now expected to be April, and I’ve also heard rumours about flights from STN being moved up to EMA including some 747 traffic but I’m guessing time will tell

When I left nearly 2 years ago there were so few Admin people left that B34 was shutting and staff redeployed around the Airport, guess that's still the case, probably why nothing gets done to the pot holes - nobody to report to/ take action on!

Mars? It looks more like East Midlands Airports roads...joke.

AP, I cannot see how anyone could miss the poor standard of the roads, they after all have to drive over them to get in. Call me old fashioned but the first thing punters see is the road surfaces as they drive in and if that is worse than some third world countries to the punters they have to wonder what the rest of the infrastructure is like.

not sure if this is the start of new flights but this morning has seen

CGN - EMA - SDF 763F
CDG - EMA 763F

Also worth nothing the new 747 stand on cargo east is now in operation with Swissport handling the Cargologic 744F on the LGG - EMA - ATL flight

Cargologic

So following the daily flights of Cargologic out of EMA, I was wondering what the legalities of operating a G- registered aircraft from the EU to the US for example without operating through the UK on the route? I was under the impression that there wasn’t anything in place in the Brexit deal
Is there any news on the expansion of routes operated by UPS out of the airport

The Cargologic 747s are on the UK register and only, so far as I can recall operating EMA-CVG-EMA. I think they also operate a weekly ATL-EMA that finishes up somewhere in the EU but of course as it's a UK registered aircaft there probably wouldn't be issues carrying revenue cargo EMA-wherever in EU. The Kalitta 747 CKS330/330A operates LEJ-EMA-LAX, but of course this is a different kettle of fish as it's a US registered aircraft and therefore there maybe issues carry paying cargo between LEJ and EMA, but then again FedEX use US registered aircraft for UK/EU flights so perhaps not. Somebody better versed than me could probably clarify that point.

The Brexit (lack of a) deal has made it impossible for Aerologic to operate the D- registered 777 freighters between UK and the USA, and similarly EU registered aircraft, such as the Star Air 767s to operate domestically in UK, so those aircraft now fly domestic UK legs on Titan flight numbers, hence some of the changes to the DHL operation that occurred after the end of transition.

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong on any of the above.

the reason I ask is that it has run AMS-ORD in the last week and I was also under the impression it was impossible

I would guess a one-off permit, in the same way that Ukrainian Antonov operators get to fly EU/UK cargo charters.

Looks unlikely as G-CLAA is currently enroute to Atlanta from Milan.

Still only flight to 31st Dec visible online. Seems odd.
Anyone know anything on this one?

Asked the question on another forum which apparently a lot of the S22 network across Europe isn’t loaded as of yet but will be at some point
