About Norwich Airport

Our regional airport at Norwich has flights all year to many holiday destinations. There are several aviation related companies on the airfield, including KLM UK Engineering, Air Livery plc, SaxonAir for corporate aviation, CHC Helicopters, NVH Helicopters and Bristow Helicopters. In addition this is the base for the East Anglian Air Ambulance and there is also, of course, the International Aviation Academy where our group meet for talks each month.

Norwich Airport Restarting Services and Bulding Programmes

Plans are in place for a cautious reopening of Norwich International. The airport has announced that KLM will resume daily flights to Schiphol from August 3rd. Charter flights to Bulgaria are planned from late July and Loganair expects to reopen its route to Edinburgh in September. It will also increase the frequency of its current Aberdeen service, whilst Tui plans to fly to Tenerife from October 8th.

Around the airport all three current building projects have restarted with the new scanning facility to the side of Check In now watertight, cladding well underway on KLM Engineering’s new hangar and framework for EAAA’s new crew facility now in place, with its original hangar framework ready for recladding.

There are quite a number of modern helicopters based in the building near the park and ride.

At last count BA was still storing 8 Embraer aircraft around the airport perimeter whilst Air France KLM at one time had 10 737s from its KLM and Transavia fleets stored close to Petans. Also there are now a total of 6 ex-Flybe Embraer ERJ195s, one of which is in Great Dane livery with the others plain white. This doubtless brings steady business to KLM Engineering as all are regularly moved to the hangar area for storage maintenance.

BA, for its part, has regularly flown its Embraer aircraft on short test flights from Norwich in recent weeks. (Note recently KLM’s stored aircraft count has reduced to 6) The airport currently still closes down in the evening. This meant interesting logistics when the Manchester United team recently played at Carrow Road. They flew into Norwich but whilst they were at the ground, and before the airport closed, their plane transited to RAF Marham from where they returned to Manchester later that evening.

Some planes stored on the airport at end of July.
