Strange that Teesside seems to be able to sustain 3 flights a day to Aberdeen (even with the Mayor's money and two operators on the route) and Newcastle is not. Clearly the Chemical and Oil/Gas industries are more evident in Teesside but Newcastle is a far larger market and the train still takes ages.

Aberdeen will be back once the demand picks up.

Historically of course, Teesside has always had more passengers to Aberdeen than Newcastle, up until Loganair started in 2019 and Eastern were having issues with reliability - CAA passengers figures from previous years - 2014 –
Teesside – 35034
Newcastle - 30168

2015 -
Teesside – 28224
Newcastle – 20788

2016 -
Teesside – 13225
Newcastle – 8925

Teesside – 17508
Newcastle – 11410

Teesside – 21496
Newcastle – 10923

Teesside – 17055
Newcastle – 22215

And cancelled Teesside!

mmeteesside 16th Aug 2021 11:18

Well thatís a very predictable move - looks to be once a day Sun-Fri with a J41

Jamesair1 16th Aug 2021 13:47

Exactly what I thought would happen....and gradually increase frequencies as pax levels recover.

HH6702 20th Aug 2021 17:24

Looks like EK have pulled out for winter 2021/22

LiamNCL 20th Aug 2021 17:57

Seem to be operating from October 15th EK33/34 Arriving 19:10PM departing to Dubai at 21:10

Seems to be a handful of student (?) flights in October and at Christmas - although mid-October seems a bit late for students?

skyhawk1 20th Aug 2021 17:59

on EK website they have flights mon, wed, fri and sun from mid October. Hope they are coming back.

SWBKCB 20th Aug 2021 18:35

But only in October? Can't find any in Nov or Dec?

sunshine79 20th Aug 2021 19:13

EK have brought forward their re-start date. It was due to be 1st September. New flight times are so much better. They ,ay be re-editing the winter schedule which is why its not on sale. They are using STN flight times and flight number instead of the usual NCL EK35/36 times

GrahamK 20th Aug 2021 21:05

Available throughout winter on EK33/34.

SWBKCB 21st Aug 2021 06:50


Yes, bookable now.

fl dutchman 21st Aug 2021 10:47

Bit confused. Appears its bookable from the end of October. MWFSu. ( Not brought forward from 1 Sept)

SWBKCB 21st Aug 2021 10:59

It looks like Emirates have been updating their website over the past 24hrs - flights are bookable from 15 October, mainly four times a week but some weeks vary.

They are using STN flight times and flight number instead of the usual NCL EK35/36 times
EK033/034 were the old STN flight numbers when the service launched single daily in 2018 as an afternoon arrival/evening departure, with a long layover inbetween.

When it went double daily from July 2019 the new flight numbers became EK065/066 and EK067/068. They're showing STN from March 2022 with just the afternoon EK065/066 rotation.

EK033/034 hasn't been used since, and the NCL winter timings are not the same as the previous STN times, which was a 17:45 arrival (EK067) and 20:15 departure (EK068).

Any update on the A330F, it seems to have gone quiet and doesn't seem to be operating.

Jamesair1 21st Aug 2021 15:51

Several of us have put up a question about this and the new cargo operation which seemed to have started up........ but no-one seems to have any information.

On a different matter....with 36 departures on the board tomorrow, this must be the highest so far...with Jet2 using 7 a/c

beedoubleu 22nd Aug 2021 08:37

The only info on the cargo op is that the aircraft that was parked here for a few weeks (9H-LFS) is being used out of Kiev to various destinations, so draw your conclusions from that. Cancelled or delayed ?

All times are GMT. The time now is 23:20.
