TUI were operating 2 x 787 3 or 4 nights per week EMA / MIA during the summer, before the travel rules were relaxed presumably allowing TUI to resume PAX operations with them. Is this new operation 1 x MIA and 1 x JFK or both aircraft routing EMA-JFK/MIA? I assume the former.

Clearly the cargo work that TUI UK undertook through the pandemic has opened their eyes to the revenue that can be earned when times are lean in the IT market.

Here's a question for the data enthusiasts : Is EMA now the UK airport with the highest number of weekly 747 ops?

With so many airlines retiring the type from pax ops at LHR, LGW and MAN, and the recent arrival of new 747 cargo flights in the schedules at EMA, the numbers must be heading in that direction, if they have not already got there.

Dont you love the press spin !
Less routes than last year !
Just that they have negotiated a new deal so they are selling them as 'massive growth' but in reality little has changed

I understand that “commercially sensitive” discussions were taking place during the Summer with a company (or companies) regarding the former UPS facility.
There are a couple of obvious candidates that I can think of that may be interested, however it could be a new one for EMA, although I doubt this due to the size of the facility.
Does anyone know if anything has been finalised yet?

The “commercially sensitive” comment is from the last published minutes of the ICC meeting.
FedEx is the name that is mentioned most often on the rumour network as the most likely to be moving in, closely followed by Amazon, but I have heard a few other unlikely ones.
I would have imagined that the airport has been in talks for some time to attract a new tenant for the facility, so I wondered if the outcome had been made public yet.

So, I’ve heard it won’t be FedEx as per your above statement. Possibly the smiley planes may have a base

Saturday 18th Dec a QR 747 (flight QR8856) was scheduled on FR24 to fly AUH - EMA arr at approx 1640. En route it diverted to MXP

I assumed it might have been connected to the AUH Grand Prix maybe, bringing team kit back to the UK. But interested in the MXP divert / re-route.

does anyone know if the flight did arrive in to EMA overnight Sat, or any time today?
