I believe BIH have the FOST Contract to run the Dauphins for the Navy that used to be based in Plymouth. They presumably moved to NQY when PLH closed so that they were still close to FOST operations (eg, Thursday wars) in the SW approaches.

How many heliports does Plymouth need?

Good question! Staddon Heights seems to be fairly busy with several visiting helicopters most days.

For whoever asked, all BIH choppers including the FOST aircraft moved to a hangar at NQY when PLH closed.

Well all apart from those deployed to the Falklands.

Looks like Balkan holidays have quietly dropped this summers flights from Exeter to Bourgas

This happened a couple of years ago as well , noticed they have added Newquay as departure point for 2 flights next year but no Exeter

Flybe W13

Is EXT losing its based E195 because looking at the connections timetable it would suggest the Spanish routes are served on W pattern from SOU for the winter?

Will this mean EXT will only have 2 Q400s?

I believe it's losing it's 195 for the Winter. 4 are meant to be parked for the Winter, temporarily replaced by the 4 175s arriving over the winter. The 195s are due back for the Summer 2014, when the 4 175s due over the Winter will then replace Q400s.

I dont think all the E195s will leave, they were on 6 year leases I believe but deliveries were scattered. Not sure what Flybe's strategy is because they have openly said they want to take more advantage of leisure routes - and this is reconfirmed by the increase in sun routes for S13 and S14. Will there be any other jet replacement to allow these to continue? The E175s are much more limited on range are they not?

Also are the jets being parked in one location or are they scattered across the network as hot spares?

re: new routes

Will there be any routes from Exeter that are not sun routes or charter operations?? Surely there is demand for more routes within the UK and Ireland and new routes to countries such as Germany, Belgium, France, Austria, Denmark/Norway/Sweden??

Petey156 - not quite sure what you mean, there are a number of city/key business destinations in addition to sun routes available from Exeter.

Year round:
Amsterdam
Paris
Dublin
Edinburgh
Glasgow
Belfast
Manchester
Newcastle
Jersey
Guernsey

Summer:
Dusseldorf

Winter
Salzburg
Geneva

Those that are seasonal, are very difficult to operate year round with BRS up the road. However it would be nice to see some of them operate more frequently especially GVA and DUS

BRU has been tried and died an awful death. I think Rome or Milan would do quite well

There are also many more routes available via Paris, Amsterdam and Manchester with various interline and code share arrangements; Sydney, Bangkok, Abu Dhabi, Beijing, Singapore, Hong Kong, Delhi, Johannesburg, Copenhagen, Warsaw, Madrid etc my flight to Exeter from Sydney cost the same as flying to London but was certainly more convenient- Manchester Airport was a breeze in comparison to Heathrow.

just seems as though all new routes that are being announced are leisure routes or additional frequency on destinations already served.

Thomson are having a tinker about with there flights for next summer

Bodrum has been dropped and Dalaman has been moved into the Thursday slot instead of Friday and is now operated by Thomson based B738 instead of using the Onur Air A321 this year

Still no news on which airline is operating the new Crete service
