Why No Operators On NCL-BGO Route?

Ever since Jet2 pulled out some time ago, the route has been unattended. Widerøe used to operate it but dropped it after Jet2 came along. Now that both are gone, I'm surprised nobody else are giving it a go...

Has anyone heard any rumours...?

Not heard many rumours about it recently to be honest.

Would've been great to see Braathens SAFE 735s back on it though  Wink  duck

Well, DFDS Seaways has decided to stop the BGO-HAU-SVG-NCL boat service twice weekly from September 1st 2008 - of course we are talking to completely different concepts her (sailing/flying), but still; DFDS Seaways sends around 1.000 Norwegian pax to NCL on a good week in low season, and many more in high season, plus UK traffic the other way - no doubt there will be left a vacuum here for the holiday travellers, short-break travellers etc. I could see a thrice-weekly; Wed-Fri-Sun service, with your standard 320/737, work just fine. However, I doubt it would start up before Easter 2009.

Not really. BGO-NCL seems to be a difficult route. However SAS (Widerøe and SAS) offers a decent connection NCL-SVG-BGO

Absolutely.. Dan Air BAe146 also welcome.  Wink

SVG-NCL departs at 7:00AM... wouldn't call that decent. Hehe.
I used Eastern Airways last time I flew to Newcastle from SVG, simply based on the Widerøe departure time. Sadly the flights were close to empty, so I wouldn't be surprised if Eastern pulled out soon too.

There were talks about Flybe possibly giving NCL-BGO a go... but I take it nothing more has come of it?

Jet2 have a habit of forcing other operators off routes, then dropping them themselves.

Maybe it would be a good idea for T3 to alter flight times slightly to offer connections at NCL to BHX and CWL for a few extra passengers? I expect most of the few passengers on your flight would have been paying a large fare though

What makes you think that anyone else can make it profitable if these can't .. ? The traffic volume between these cities are very low...

Have I lost the plot here?

Why would an airline want to start a Newcastle to Bogota service, is there such a demand?

Jet2 don't even operate long haul services, so can't see them flying it!

The topic was about flying from NCL to BGO (Bergen,Norway), not to BOGota!

Whilst it's lower than NCL-SVG, the traffic isn't THAT low.

Although, I'd rather NCL-OSL be re-introduced than NCL-BGO

Would also work, but I'm still hoping someone will go for BGO again soon. Wasn't there a chance that Jet2 would return to that route after a year or so...? The reason they pulled out was mainly because they wanted to focus more on flights from Leeds/Bradford... right?

They didn't reduce the number of aircraft at LBA after pulling Bergen so I doubt that is the reason. Jet 2 pulled out spring 2007 didn't they? That summer they launched a big NCL expansion to Spanish sun destinations competing with Easyjet
