Clearly not - the previous management decided to cancel them all, as they were costing more to facilitate than they brought in. Blackpool struggled due to a poor contract with Jet2 also, which ultimately led them to going bankrupt. A lot of airports have bent over backwards to try and attract services, only to end up regretting it.

This is the problem for Durham Tees Valley: not enough flights. Staff having nothing to do for large parts of the day, but required to be there for the few flights they have. An airport cannot live of network carriers alone, they need more flights. They need volume to keep the staff occupied, to cover the costs of employing that staff.
