Looks like flybe are starting to play around with the NQY-MAN route. Seems they have added a Sunday rotation currently instead of the second Saturday from last year. However it runs from Feb-Aug currently by the looks of it.

Wouldn't surprise me to see more of these second services added on this route.

2x MAN

Just checked the reservations system.

Sundays is indeed 2x MAN from early Feb onwards

Times seem quite odd though and all over the shop on some dates and quite close together. Probably some changes coming I'd imagine.


Some examples;

22FEB BE352 DEP 1200
22FEB BE354 DEP 1445

22MAR BE354 DEP 11:05 looks like it's switched with the BE803/4 rotation on that day
22MAR BE352 DEP 12:00

12JUL BE354 DEP 1445
12JUL BE352 DEP 1530

The February times in the example are similar to the 2xMAN we had on Saturdays last summer.

Good luck to them and us obviously

A distinct sense of positivity about the Newquay thread recently; with new services and commitment from Flybe in its London operations, great to see it.

2015 looks very promising indeed.

NQY-MAN could sustain double daily. However I agree that more changes are probably coming as it would make no sense to have double daily on Sunday's and no other day, Friday, Sunday, Tuesday maybe ?

However I'm certain we will see more to come as currently the schedules loaded ex NQY make little sense and require 3 based Q400s on 3 days a week where there is currently only 1

Nothing loaded as yet which is a shame.

I think GLA could easily sustain a 3 weekly, same with EDI which is again only once weekly as it stands currently which isn't much use if you want a short break.

Nice to see NQY busy with training flights today, don't normally find two aircraft doing circuits at the same time.
Currently easyjet G-EZEZ running round as U29 and jet2 as EXS300T

What is the possibility that NQY-ALC is operated again? Or any other sun route?
When Ryanair operated it, it carried 32,000 pax in 2009. Maybe something similar to HUY-ALC/PMI.

There's no reason why not, clearly demand exists for such routes, however an airline prepared to operate a regular scheduled route.........

Cornishsimon,

Feels like a market suitable for an tour operator such as JetXtra, similar to what is offered ex-Humberside to a couple of sun spots. Operated by 190/170's ...

One potential I could see would be for U2 to operate it using the LPL-NQY service to position the aircraft down.
LPL-NQY
NQY-ALC-NQY
NQY-LPL

If they ever find room in the schedules I don't see why a weekly flight to Palma with Thomson wouldn't be considered in the future.

Brilliant news and very much needed looking at the numbers.

Something Iv been predicting for a while.

Such a shame the times are quite rubbish really but hopefully they will resolve this next year and make it 14/15 weekly with early am and lateish pm departures.

I agree, the times aren't great - do they offer any better connection timings?
From March passengers number have increased - since April consistently 4,000 pax per month. Somewhere around 44,000 pax for the year (30% rise) I think.

Might see an E-Jet more regularly at NQY if they operate MAN-NQY using the E175 (like the 4th daily EXT flight).

But still no word on those new flights that the MD mentioned in December?

From what I can workout there was growth on most routes LGW, MAN, ISC, LPL, BHX and DUS in 2014. LGW carried around 15,000 extra pax due to the winter storms and ISC an extra 5,000 or so due to LEQ runway works. See if they can sustain pax numbers this year.

Interesting that the additional Monday and Friday flights are using BE358 when the existing flight is 352 and the current second flight number is 353 which is staying as 354 ok Sundays !!

Me thinks there's more to come from flybe at NQY.

Flybe online timetable now showing the new STN-NQY route, which starts mid-May, as daily until end Sept (was previously 3pw).

By my reckoning, on a Sat. in the height of S15, there will be 18 BEE arrivals and departures.

It's certainly looking up for NQY domestically.

The increased flybe flights are brilliant news, just a shame that they haven't managed to double daily MAN 7 per week with morning and evening departures to allow onward connection flexibility at MAN.

DUS returns again as does LPL.
DUB as a new starter with EI is again great news.
