Is that good news? I mean, itís better than nothing, but would a double daily not have been better for Cornwall even if it was to another airport? Iím sure Eastern and Logan to name two would have bitten the Governmentís arm off right now for the chance. And how was this tendered?

Setting London aside the good news with a couple of those routes is they wont have to worry about social distancing on board if they start in June..

Would the PSO be generous enough to support the cost of a new base?

Looks like Eastern Airways now taking on the ex flybe route from Newquay - Leeds/Bradford. Flights have just gone on sale commencing from July 9th 2020 operating 5x weekly MON-FRI using BAe Jetstream 41.

Finding a use for the J41 !

glad the route is back but shocked via J41 in all honesty. That route was always well utilized when flown on the dash

I’m a bit confused by this announcement.

LBA-NQY was subsidized under flybe wasn’t it ? European regional route fund or something ?

Had that already terminated when flybe went bust or is this a resumption of this and likely to be year round not seasonal ?

equally. Where’s the aircraft coming from ? Is this downtime from the LBA-SOU route or could it spell more expansion at LBA ?

Good news.....until they reveal the fares....Eastern are not renowned for low fares which will probably put a lot of prospective pax off.

Well, if they can attract the least price sensitive 30 per cent passengers who flew on a BE Q400 in the past, they will have an almost full Jetstream 41.

Prices for the first couple of weeks start at about £160 return (waits for gasps of shock and horror....)

Even under normal circumstances train fares are rarely cheap Leeds - Newquay.

A quick check for early July shows £160 return to be a positive bargain, and as viginblue says, they don't need many takers to fill a J41.
