I wouldn't quite say that, bearing in mind that BEE will operate to ALC from up the road at EXT again next Summer.


Well I must admit I hadn't thought of it that way so it will be interesting to see how this affects BEE at EXT.

The Ryanair flights now are available to book.

FRANKFURT HAHN
Sunday
HHN-NQY 13:40-14:25 (FR2908)
NQY-HHN 14:50-17:35 (FR2909)

Thursday
HHN-NQY 10:25-11:10 (FR2908)
NQY-HHN 11:35-14:20 (FR2909)

ALICANTE
Sunday
ALC-NQY 17:35-19:05 (FR2902)
NQY-ALC 19:30-23:00 (FR2903)

Wednesday
ALC-NQY 09:00-10:30 (FR2902)
NQY-ALC 10:55-14:25 (FR2903)





Not terrible flight times, but very much look like padding out an existing schedule.


Wonder if we might see more routes in time.

According to local radio news this morning, another press conference at the airport on Monday, this time with Flybe.

Not heard it but that can only be good news. I'm hopeful that NQY could be made a base.

Next summer should be
1 STN
3 LGW
2 MAN
1 BHX

Plus whatever is announced.

Now for speculation.

AMS, ORK, CDG, LBA, EMA ???

Once upon a time Newquay Cork was a lot more popular than the Dublin route. However, Dublin will have more appeal due to onward connection options now.

The EI DUB route didn't allow onward connections. No idea if they will allow it next year.

Flybe won't operate the Cork route. It's just not going to happen.

A proper schedule to GLA is needed, the FlySouthwest and Loganair attempts to the southwest could be improved, though most use EZY to BRS.

Ryanair has reduced flights from HHN considerably as a reult of the recent built-up of flights from CGN. So I guess they have quite a bit of spare capacity there they can use to accommodate niche routes that mainly attract German tourists and are not available from other German airport.

Actually very good flight times especially to/from Hahn-

and of course they are padding out an existing schedule - no-one is going to start their flight planning based on Newquay.............................

Maybe Flybe will announce NQY-LBA as applied for in the air connectivity fund. Something like 3 x weekly in Winter and 5/6 weekly in Summer.

More Dusseldorf flights are apparently in the pipeline - German route expansion is reportedly growing to generate 4 million for the Cornish economy next year.

Can anyone confirm if EZY have pulled out of NQY altogether or will we have another press conference next week with further expansion announcements?!!!

This suggests that todays announcement will be related to deployment of Embraers on NQY-LGW:

This seems to be correct. Well that's all that local radio are currently reporting anyway !

Surely there's more to a press conference than just announcing a larger aircraft ? And surely it won't just be used to LGW as per the reporting ?

I'm surprised Flybe haven't gone for NQY-EXT-LCY, it might have been able to help them prop up x3 daily flights

Most likely the E195 will become the 'based' aircraft operating to LGW and MAN and a BHX based aircraft Q400 to operate BHX-NQY-STN-NQY-BHX like this year. Not sounding like there are going to be any new routes a such but the Flybe CEO said they will look at any opportunities. NQY may eventually break the 300,000 mark again!!

I may be wrong...but I thought at the time Flybe announced the continuation of Newquay-Gatwick that it came out that they were to lease the LGW slots...so perhaps if whoever they leased the slots from (if indeed that part is true) wants some of them back then Flybe are planning to stick the larger 118-seater on the route in return for a frequency reduction (as least as far as the Gatwick route is concerned)??

It is looking as though Flybe do not have the slots to operate the mid morning NQY-LGW-NQY from next summer any more. I don't know what's happened to them, but the LGW slots have gone. The suggestion that a 195 on the morning and evening would "compensate" for loss of frequency (down from three to two flights per day each way) would seem dangerously close to the mark....

If so, this is smoke and mirrors PR at its most acute.

globetrotter....not sure where you got the leased LGW slots bit from but wherever it was it's garbage. LGW slots all belong to BE....no leasing involved.

What "propping up" do you think they need? Check the CAA stats...no props required...that's why they're putting on the jets...geddit?? I'll get me coat...

TT - BE sold all of their own slots at LGW to easyJet, including the ones with which they operated Newquay. The morning and evening pair they currently use are leased from BA.
