Seems a bit random, obviously taking a lesson from bmibaby's school of route development  Wink

They may be planning on utilising the Channel Express 737QC that spends the day on the ground at NCL before operating the mail flight to STN, so possibly not as stupid as itmsounds  Wink

Good news for NCL!

Will they introduce a new "Jet 2 Newcastle" theme aircraft similar to "Jet 2 Manchester"?

Is NCL still the UK's fastest growing airport?

Fair enough, but has anybody in NCL heard of Jet2? They will have to spend lots of money on advertising for just 1 route.

Heard a rumour a while back that they were looking at starting NCL-LGW didn't think there was any truth in it at the time but perhaps there is if Jet2 are starting one flight more must be to follow surely?

Look out for more routes from Newcastle and a potentially gruesome battle between Jet2 and easyjet.

OMG!!! That is brilliant news for NCL, considering the week NCL is having, with the strike being called off at last minute. This might start a competition with EZY's route to ALC and bring the high prices down.
Why drive when you can fly?
