Flybe

Flybe announce new route from Exeter to Normandy | Exeter Express and Echo

Was this one included when the 're-instated' Flybe Costa flights were announced two or three weeks ago?

Exeter to Deauville from June to September 2 x weekly.

Definately a new route not previously announced as part of the EXT "sunshine routes" re-instatement. Appears in the booking engine with flights available 25/6 to 3/9.

DOL was also announced as part of the BOH launch, maybe it will be flown on a W with one of the BOH-based a/c?

It is to an airport renowned for offering very significant levels of "marketing support" to airlines so neither BOH-DOL nor the subsequent addition of EXT is surprising in that regard.

How likely is it that EXT AMS will become double daily? My misses wants to move back to the EXT area and we now uses AMS to connect to BRS a lot as the EXT schedule is a pain but a proper double daily would be great. Any gossip if this is on the books?

Had a quick look at a random date in March and it seems on weekdays the flights are as follows:

EXT-LCY 0645
EXT-LCY 1510

However the LCY second flight doesn't leave until 2030 so one assumes the aircraft will serve one of the additional BHD or EDI in between. Still useful for those in London on day trips but for the few (and I expect it to be just a few) on day trips to Exeter it's not exactly a long day when considering journey times to Exeter airport from the city centre.

@GlobalGlobal: I don't think AMS doubledaily is at all likely, however, even it did come up, I'd advise caution to decide moving to any place based on a flight schedule, particularly FlyBE's route planning is anything but reliable, routes come and go at worrying speed.

Unusual visitor today at EXT?

Wondered what was buzzing around at 2000ft around 9am this morning in Mid Devon, checked and found it to be a Bombardier Global Express (twin-jet) VJT822R which was about to land at EXT having flown from Miami, Florida.

Anyone got any inside information as to who was visiting, other than the crew of course?

EXETER AIRPORT

My friend, who lives near EXT, is asking me what the big unmarked aircraft is doing flying round and round doing circuits and bumps?

Any EXT experts here?

March Provisional Stats

Terminal passengers up 7.1% to just shy of 800K for the previous 12 months. Nice to see the return of AGP, ALC and FAO scheduled services.

Key routes showing growth in March:
  • Manchester up 37%
  • Dublin up 88%
  • Paris CDG up 19%
Manchester is particularly strong with just over 12,000 per month - assisted by the 4th daily weekday service.

I looks like Flybe Codeshares with CX, EY, AY, AF, EI seem to be having the desired effect... LCY figure still not released, here's hoping they can bed down the twice daily service.

I also notice EY code now placed on DUB, EDI & AMS flights - as well as MAN.

Thomson have had a few changes made to there summer 2016 operation with Sharm being replaced by Rhodes and Tenerife now being operated by Thomson based aircraft , there is also no Endifia programme next year

Palma was scheduled to operated by Volotea B 717 on a Thursday but this has now been replaced with Air Europa 737 800

As only a single TOM 738 is based, I assume either a second aircraft will be based or flown in to operate specific flights on days where TOM will operate three flights instead of two?

There is no requirement for Thomson to use an extra aircraft next summer as there are only 2 rotations a day except Friday when there are 3 rotations and the aircraft gets back early Sat am

The 3 extra flights next summer are now

Air Malta A319 Tue Malta
Air Europa B 738 Las Palmas Mon
Air Europa B 738 Palma Thu

So is there a reduced capacity from Thomson at Exeter next year or simply a case of chartered flights now operated by the based 738?
