We are on holiday in St Ives at the end of August. I see the Newquay Heritage Centre is currently closed. Anyone in the know have they any plans to re open in time.?
last there 5 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed, with well behaved dog on lead, and the chap at the VC 10 looked after pooch while I had a good nose round....

Good news

[QUOTE=SeanM1997.;10803899]Teesside - Newquay - 2x weekly - 6 July - 18 September
Leeds/Bradford - Newquay - 5x weekly - 9 July - 18

Both Leeds/Bradford and Teesside now operating year round. Frequencies as now.With BA to Heathrow plus (hopefully) E I to Dublin this winter that leaves Manchester as the biggest gap in the network.

Looks like todays Eastern flights from MME and LBA firstly got consolidated onto an MME-originating Saab, then diverted to EXT

CAA Stats

The August CAA stats show LHR NQY 4550 vs LHR NCL 4147 pax.Not good news, but less bad.603 pax to Teesside, busier than all Eastern’s routes from there.

I think LHR-NQY operated 5 weekly in August, so approx 20 round trips. That makes approx 225 pax per round trip, or an average of >100 on each sector. Doesn't seem too bad to me in the current climate?

I was in west Cornwall for the first 2 weeks of August and it was very busy. Notably fewer Germans than usual though!

A bit of a shame that there couldn’t have been some collaboration to enable a day return across the two operators.

Great news for NQY and not unexpected given the popularity of the BE route to MAN. Agree with previous post, it's a shame day trip opportunities are not available but perhaps that will come?

BHX must now be the only UK regional airport not to be re-connected back to NQY following the demise of BE? I know it was summer only but surely an ideal fit for Loganair? Loads were usually pretty good and it's at very best with zero traffic jams a 4 hour drive.....come on Loganair!

I thought they hated each other with a passion? Surely the prospect of co-operation is too much!

The score is about 6-1 in Loganair's favour in this grudge match (the only goal Eastern scored was Loganair off MME-ABZ) and so this isn't shaping up to be some Conference League-side upset in the FA Cup.

At the end of the day their competitors... if you look at their new routes they go into direct competition with one another rather than ‘helping eachother out’

Yes thank you very much, I am aware they are competitors. But, I wondered if there had been any discussion by the airport to suggest alternative timings. I assume NQY is not a coordinated airfield in terms of slots.

Of more value in terms of response to my post was that from gjmeech pointing out to me that the two airlines were starting their routes in different seasons. Let’s hope when we get to S21 and potentially see some business traffic pick up that there will be the option for a day return.

I don't think that is allowed (officially). We can't even get two local bus companies to talk to avoid missed connections due to competition laws.
