Well that's no doubt down to NQY not being open 24h. They seem to of been accommodating to flybe with extending opening hours recently but iv no idea when the cut off is.

Crew are EXT based so that makes as much sense as anywhere, but surely that in turn Cocks up the 801 rotation tomorrow ?

Knock on delays caused by needing the maximum crew rest break between last nights LGW and this mornings LGW...

Whatever the issue BEs punctuality out of NQY has been a bit of a shambles really whether it's the E195 to LGW/MAN or the AT72 they seem to be sending in from BHX and onto STN.

I have noticed the extensions as you say. Presumably the DATCO takes a break between the normal closing time and the ETA of the last LGW rotation if delayed but I would imagine that 00:30 is far beyond the 10hour cut off for ATC and exceeds duty hours for RFFS as well.

caa provisionals for April look promising on the E95 trunk routes
LGW 12552 +28%
MAN 5472 + 27%


surely if the numbers continue like this on MAN this route is a prime contender for going double daily ? even with LBA due to start in October16

plus if they called into Bristol and added a few more pax - Bingo, even greater loads as with ASW. I know, it's me again !, i'll get my coat and sod off. But at least you have to sit on an a/c, unlike the train where you have to stand all the way to Manchester. That's if you can get on one.

Admire your optimism, but calling into BRS would add an extra hour in all probability to the journey, add to operating costs (extra fuel burn, additional landing and handling charges for example).

You don't have to stand on trains, as I understand it seat reservations are free.

BRS stop wouldn't work for BE. It worked well for SZ due to the model they operated.

As a NQY fan boy it's worth noting that the numbers for NQY-LON based on latest caa stats for April now exceed LBA-LON. Yes I know that ex NQY goes to LGW and STN but even so it should prove that a LHR link would be viable.

Cornishsimon,

Remarkable job being done on growing the traffic ex Newquay, great to see the airport progressing. Cornwall is a great part of the Country so continued success.

The LHR piece may well work but it is the common theme, it is not so much that it would work but rather that other routes are far more lucrative. The charges for flying to /from LHR make it prohibitive for short point to point flying ( large part of the problem that Bmi had). so LHR would be largely transfer pax, And adding lhr woyld impact LGW, so may not be a great addition in they long run.

And while not to down NQY, LBA, if it had the right schedule it may well do a lot better, but again the commercial argument comes into play there too. I'd say that LBA is marginal at best, probably in excess of 75% of pax are transfer...

I was in the vicinity of Newquay Airport on Tuesday afternoon trying to keep my seven year old grandson happy. We watched a Jet 2 757 make repeated approaches, they seem to use our uncrowded airspace here in Cornwall quite often and as far as I know they reported no problems arising from misuse of a drone .

We moved on to the Cornwall Aviation Centre Museum and saw the ATR 72 land midafternoon. Cornwall is awash with tourists at this time of the year and the Newquay area is currently even busier than usual with the Boardmasters Surfing Competitions underway. Let's hope the idiot that did this can be apprehended but the police have a real task on their hands to sort this out it seems to me.

Some months ago I noted a drone operating over our street in a village here in Cornwall. Many weeks later I was approached at home by a fellow trying to flog air to ground photos of our property. The drone was operated at perhaps eighty to one hundred feet. Was this legal ?

June Stats

Over 13000 pax on LGW - higher than LBA LHR on 3/day A319. Large increases on MAN and DUB, so shaping up for a good summer. Germanwings DUS already on sale for S'17 with a longer season with A319 retained.

NQY is having a great year for passenger numbers.


Germany is a huge market for Cornwall and has been for years, if anything I can see more German routes to compliment the existing germanwings and Ryanair routes.


Aer Lingus have shown support for the NQY-DUB route by extending the seasonal service to year round with reduced frequency during the winter months, sadly the EI website doesn't allow onward bookings, however a decent TA can and will make onward single ticket bookings, including via DUB to UK domestic destinations, these destination are also available via the BA codeshare but oddly not via EI.


UK domestic on flybe is going from strength to strength, this is down to multiple codeshares opening up onward conenctions on BA, VS, EK etc etc etc along with the E95 being put onto both routes.


The big question in my mind is when are flybe going to make NQY either a base or to nightstop 2 aircraft and operate MAN double daily, morning and evening.


The issue to a base would be winter time routes, but however they do it MAN in my opinion could easily see 10,000 monthly with sufficient rotations, currently speaking the aircraft goes out full most days.


As for the future well its anyones guess, but theres demand for air travel and onward connections into and out of NQY


interesting times ahead and a very interesting few months until the full summer 17 schedules are known.


LBA is a good addition, but I could see EMA added as well as the likes of EDI, GLA, etc all adding rotations, plus I don't think were too far off seeing another legacy hub connection to CDG, AMS or FRA

Looks like FR are in the process of loading summer17 NQY schedules. Flights show up for ALC & HHN but prices etc aren't loaded yet.

Maybe an additional destination or two you never know.

Nothing additional from RYR that I can see, but ALC and HHN both appear to start again from the beginning of S17 (end of March).

well lets be glad its not showing any reductions and its returning, must prove that its holding its own as far as numbers and revenue goes as I doubt FR would keep it if it was loss making.

Flybe DSA

Flybe have released summer 17 schedules for DSA.
Very happy to see that NQY remains 3 weekly.

Seems to go from AM this year to PM next year. But great to see it remain considering the LBA introduction.

Now to hope and prey that flybe make NQY-MAN twice daily with a decent morning and evening flight !!!!

Because it`s not just a holiday route there is quite a lot of business traffic connecting through Manchester onwards to wherever you want and it`s easier to get to than Heathrow and has a better selection than Gatwick for long haul and northern Europe
