Sounds like Coventry City selling their stadium long before getting the new one built not so long ago. Get the new facility in place before selling up, running an air transport business needn't be rocket science, unless you think you are the bearded one.
They would be better off doing NCL and BHD maybe Fri and Mon or something. That way, those just wanting a weekend relaxing or joining those off their face in the streets with a bottle in hand, would be able to do it rather than have to stay the whole week in NQY. If you are a surfer its great, but a week for me would be a bit much.
I would tend to agree that 1x weekly routes arent much good. You could do with 2x weekly, say Wednesday and Sunday perhaps ?
good news however about LH, 2x weekly during the main summer season is what iv been predicting for a year or so now. I could also see the LH route having the season expanded at some stage and then maybe another German route added, for some reason the Germans do love Cornwall !
BIH annouced today that they will continue to operate from Penzance until 31 October 2012. Sounds like they are looking at site close to the current heliport, so maybe we'll never see their choppers at NQY.
I calculated they make about 2000£ per flight, from PZE, over a 1000£ is on fuel, landing fees and staff costs, with the additional distance, and fixed prices they wouldn't be far off making a loss at NQY.
