CHARTER SERVICES

Humberside has gone from having no holiday flights ten years ago, to newrly 30 a week planned for this summer, with new flights to The Algarve, Corfu, Malaga, Malta and additional flights to Turkey and Cyprus, bringing the total to 14 destinations. The top 5 destinations are 1)Palma, 2)Tenerife, 3)Dalaman, 4)Alicante and 5)ibiza. It should provide some rare visitors.

Development of charter services has been rapid and other charter airlines to have used HUY in the past include Sunways, Excalibur, LTE, Oasis, AirUK leisure and Dan Air. It is hoped that next year or the year after, Mytravel will base an aircraft at HUY for the summer season, to be shared with LBA and MME airports. HUY has pretty much reached its ideal destination list with the possible addition of the Costa Dorada in Spain, regular Malta flights, and another greek destination, so it just remains to build on the current routes for the future, and by all accounts, booking are good for the coming season.

SCHEDULED SERVICES

This summer will have the best choice in terms of scheduled flights for some time. Humberside has always had frequent services, but not to that many destinations. In the past, Euro Direct, Brymon, Gill airways (Air France) and British Airways but to name a few have come and gone. Destinations have included Brussels, Paris, Esbjerg, Norwich, Dublin, Belfast, Glasgow, London Heathrow, Birmingham and the channel islands.There have been several improvements to the schedule for this summer. Eastern are introducing routes to Edinburgh and Jersey, and KLM uk are adding a sixth daily frequency on the AMS route. There will be 3 scheduled airlines this summer flying to 4 destinations:

Eastern Airways - HUY's 'own' airline, and a locally based Jetstream operator. Eastern was originally set up to offer a service to Aberdeen after Air UK pulled off the route in the late 1990s. Services were operated with Metro aircraft, and these soon gave way to the Jetstream 31 and 32. Easterns schedule for this summer involves flying:
Jetstream 32

to Aberdeen (5 daily) and Edinburgh (2 daily).
Jetstream 41

to Jersey *(saturdays).
Eastern also has a major operating base at Norwich, where an Embraer 135 a/c operates. There have been several rumours about what Eastern might add from HUY next, most notably, a Manchester service, but more prominent is a Belfast schedule, we shall see what this enterprising little airline can come up with next.

KLM uk - The other major scheduled operator at HUY. KLM uk were formerley known as Air UK and have operated in the past from HUY to London Heathrow, Esbjerg and Edinburgh to name a few. They were recently taken over by KLM and are earmarked for full integration into KLM cityhopper. In the past they have operated Fokker F27 and 100 equipent and the loveable Shorts 360 and 330. Nowadays, hundreds of connections are offered via Amsterdam Schiphol, KLMs home base. KLM uk fly:
Fokker 50

to Amsterdam Schiphol (6 daily)

Gama Aviation - A small Aberdeen based operator, which recently turned its oil charters to Aberdeen into shceduled services. It operates Beech King Air aircraft on 3 daily schedules to ABZ.

With passenger figures approaching half a million/year, HUY is going from strength to strength. New scheduled destinations on the airports' 'wish list' are Belfast, Brussels, Dublin and Paris, with a possible London link aswel. It has also been rumoured that VLM will expand at HUY in the future, firstly converting the Jersey series into scheduled flights and adding destinations after that.

We shall see, but HUY has a lot going from it, and the main attraction seems to be that, once you've tried it, you go back again and again!

Mike

Well done. You've clearly made loads of effort and made a lot of research in regards of this post. HUY seems to be growing pretty well.


When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Well done!
I hope a LON flight comes in as it will be great for
intercontinental connections
My folks live about 5 minutes from HUY in WOOTON
and I fly to them at least one year from South Africa.
Forget about National Express coaches.My folks
flew out of LHR on 24 Dec and used the coach from
Grimsby down.They had a bag stolen plus on the way
back a 5 hour delay in Peterborough
Last time I flew into Leeds/Bradford from Heathrow-
all of a 29min flight

Cheers!

Nice overview you' re a real Humerside fan.

What's the "catchment area" of this airport, what are the places close by where people live/work ?

regards

the catchment area is large for HUY. It stretches from Scarborough and York in the North, accross to Sheffield, Doncaster and Scunthorpe in the West, Lincoln, Boston and Kings Lynn to the south and Grimsby and Cleethorpes to the East, but the largest 'supplier' of pax is Kingston-Upon-Hull, approx 15 miles to the north, easily accessible by the Humber Bridge.
