According to the above, 4 years.

To continue the speculation from CS, there appears to be a 1hr "gap" between the BHX flight arriving in NQY and the MAN flight departing according to the times published so far.....this suggests to me that the BHX and MAN flights won't be operated by the same a/c.

Currently the "based" aircraft operates the 3 LGW and 1 MAN trip scheduled for the winter.

We shall see.

=3,100,000/(4*365) / (6*78)= 4.54 per seat.
Was under a fiver really all it took ?

yeah, so is paying out 100s of millions per year for layabouts to sit on their arses and laughing at everyone else earning the money they receive. What's your point Harry?

Seems reasonable value for money compared to the vast sums poured down the drain in the name of international aid. Eleven billion pounds a year if memory is working more or less properly today. By the standards Cornwall Council usually follow this seems acceptable use of public money.

I would venture that a fiver for every seat on every flight for 4 years sounds like quite a lot.

But if Flybe sell all those seats for 100 each, it looks like little more than an addition to their ancillary revenue stream (and not great taxpayer value)

I guess the reality is something between the two, and if it means the service continues....and in time leverages more Flybe commitment to NQY, then all well and good.

Looking back Newquay was BA's only profitable route on the turboprop fleet when they ditched the lot.

NQY-LGW PSO

Pity they didn't have that policy when NQY and many others had links to LHR and then got turfed out by BA, with the then Tory govts blessing.
Indeed, inadequate rwy capacity at LHR was an issue all those years ago. The government declared LHR "full" in 1977.

So NQY-LGW set to continue with flybe 3x daily !

Couldn't of seen that one coming

Good news though, Simon!

Do you think? Compare and contrast with the billions poured down the EU black hole every week.

Now that really is a "poor use of taxpayers money", especially as the EU is completely unable to get its accounts audited year after year.

And there's another 1.7 billion. Dave's only said that he won't pay it on 1-12-14 (not that he ain't paying it), and that's only because there's a "difficult" by-election on 29-11-14.


yeah, so is paying out 100s of millions per year for layabouts to sit on their arses and laughing at everyone else earning the money they receive. What's your point Harry?
These payments pale into insignificance in comparison, with our EU contributions.

There are other carriers, or there would have been but for the inadequate rwy capacity at LHR back then.

Would be interested to see the figures behind that claim...

In what could be flybe/NQY related news, apple aviation are recruiting DH8 and E-Jet engineers for urgent start at NQY for a contract.....

Anyone think flybe are outsourcing some mx to apple and will rotate aircraft through NQY for mx ?

Apple

Line maintenance and overnight maintenance for the based fleet, my guess anyway.

At a time when all local budgets in Cornwall are being cut subsidising airlines should NOT be on the list

Not enough people are willing to pay a commercial price for the service - so we pay them... this is madness

VickersViscount - Not a claim, it was well documented at the time but agree it would be great to see the numbers now though perhaps their relevance to today's costs would be meaningless.

Flybe announce new service between Newquay Cornwall Airport and London Stansted for summer 2015 | Newquay Cornwall Airport


NQY-STN loaded at 3 weekly so far............






Wednesday, 12 November, 2014
Today Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline has announced a new service between Newquay Cornwall Airport and London Stansted as part of its expansion plans from the Airport. This service will commence in May 2015 and operates from Newquay Airport as part of its summer schedule until September 2015, offering a minimum of 3 departures per week.
Flights will operate on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday and one way fares are available from 29.99 including taxes and charges and can be booked at www.flybe.com
Al Titterington, Newquay Cornwall Airport’s Managing Director commented “This is a further boost to the Airport and the tourism economy and follows on the back of the Gatwick announcement at the end of October. In previous times Stansted had been a key route for Cornwall bringing high value inbound tourism from its affluent catchment like Cambridge. We expect passenger demand to be strong and will be working with our partners to promote Cornwall”.

We never believed it would happen, to most of us it just didn't make sense and was wishful thinking, ah well, never say never. I'm still a bit in disbelief, but expansion anywhere is good news as far as I see, so long may it thrive, the only question now whether it will be served by an AT43 or an AT76?

Must admit I'm surprised its not going to be a BE route on a NQY based Q with an EI codeshare as the current BE schedules have some gaps that would appear to need some new routes to fill.

Perhaps they don't think a Q400 would be best utilised on a marginal route year round, which kind of puts it in my mind that an AT43 will be used to cut on fuel and crew costs, I'll put my theory to the test by trying to book a flight when it becomes available on the EI website.
