Newcastle International Airport in the UK is on target for another interesting year. Several developments have occurred over the past months and the future looks interesting too. Here is a run down of the latest news from the north.
will return to NCL for the summer 2002 season after an excellent 2001. Air Scandic were the most punctual airline at NCL in the summer and hope to repeat this success. All services are operated by leased Finnair 757-200s, and are a welcome sight.
after an excellent start on the STN route, and a recent increase to 3 flights a day, a fourth rotation is planned for the spring, dep NCL@1440. there is also speculation about NCL becoming GO's next base.
THe Paris serice is performing very well, and may even be upgraded to a 146-300 a/c. The BHD service is also performing well, and will become a Q400 route in 2002. The BRU service is profitable, but the 146-100 will be replaced by a CRJ, based in BRU as of the 26th Dec. New for 2002 is a sched summer sat service to Jersey.
