Ok, so Manchester seems to have a decent thread going on, so why not have a NCL one as well?

For NCL this year, new routes are:
Preveza - Aegean 737-400s
Djerba - Kathargo 737-300s

Jet2:
Amsterdam 2 x Daily
Pisa 2/3 x weekly
Mahon 2/3 x weekly
Bergen 2/3 x weekly
Tenerife 2 x weekly

Bergen 2 x weekly

Monarch will be doing 3 long haul flights per week to Sanford (A330 2 x weekly) and Puerto Plata (A330 1 x weekly), with Air Transat to Toronto (A310 1 x weekly).
Sharm El Sheikh see's more flights

FlyJet are now basing a B757-200 year round at NCL.

Eastern Airways have started 4 x Daily (weekdays) to London City

FlyBe are rumoured to be looking at NCL to NWI and INV
No expansion is coming from easyJet, perhaps some more routes from Jet2 and Ryanair will follow?
I think some Eastern European routes may come soon, from the likes of Wizz, Centralwings or SkyEurope?

Based a/c at NCL this summer:
TOM: 1 x 733, 2 x 752
TCX: 2 x 752
MYT: 1 x 320
XLA: 1 x 734, 1 x 752 (lsd from Finnair)

LS: 2 x 733

AF continue CDG flights 3 x Daily using CRJ-700s
KL continue AMS flights 5 x Daily with 3 F100s, 1 F70 and 1 B737.
SN continue BRU flights 3 x Daily with RJ85/RJ100
SK continue CPH flights 1 x Daily with CRJs of Cimber Air
LH continue DUS flights 1 x Daily with CRJs.

Anything I've missed out?

Not sure yet, rumours going about saying it'll be put on the UK register, don't think it'll be repainted however

Taba and Hurghada are low during the summer, aren't they? Hurghada seems to get only flights from Gatwick (3x XLA, 1x TCX) and Manchester (1x TCX, 1x MYT, 1x XLA) all on a friday. Taba also just gets Manchester (2x AEU) and Gatwick (1x FCA, 1x XLA) flights.

Flights from Birmingham, Bristol and Glasgow to Hurghada and from Birmingham to Taba will start up again in november after the summer.

HRG maybe, but TCP is a year round destination and Taba Heights has proved to be really popular with the Brits. I would of thought at least a weekly flight.

I know CO was interested and i think they may start the route next year if AA doesn't want it.  Smile

I think with CO, it will probably be a matter of when, and not if, they start a EWR-NCL service.
Thinking about it, with the size of the EWR hub, I suppose it would have more chance of being successful anyway.

Norway has historically always been well linked to NCL, A lot of the traffic is oil/gas related I believe so is quite high yielding. The Jet2 flights will hopefully encourage a growth in tourism between Norway and Northern England/Southern Scotland, and I understand that Bergen is a nice city and a gateay to the spectacular fjords (sp?) of Norway.
Dan Air used to operate a Daily NCL-SVG-BGO service in the 1980s IIRC.

Next to London, Newcastle has historically been the gateway to Britain for Norwegians. Norwegians simply love Newcastle and the shopping opportunities, pubs and football  Smile

First we had, and still have, the ferry service from Bergen/Stavanger/Kristiansand. Now we have air service from Bergen/Oslo/Stavanger. Very well served indeed, but there is a historic reason as GKirk mentioned above!

I did that last year, it was one of the best flights ever, so smooth and comfy. Row 25 i think, the two on the right hand side.

Around 15th May I think, first flight operates inbound via LGW, then it's nonstop both ways for the rest of the season using A310s, although the odd A330 does make an appearance.
