A london route to exeter wouldnt work, competition with rail means it cannot be profitable, Flybe have already done studies into an Exeter-London route.

Here is what Plymouth City Council has had to say, some interesting tibits;

The Chamber is now calling for an independent study into the future of air travel from Plymouth to cover areas such as the feasibility of a runway extension and using new technology to shorten the distance needed to take off and land at the airport which has a short runway that cannot be used by many types of aircraft.
and

A spokesman for Plymouth City Council said the news was "disappointing" and that it would be discussing the implications of this decision with the airline.
