At a rough guess do the LHR flights that are covered by the PSO get the first consideration time wise, and then everything else? Or is it purely capacity and desire of the airlines?

Would terminal capacity and personnel to service these flights be an issue at NQY, especially if multiple flights are in the ground together, Skybus excluded.

Of interest there was an article in the local press yesterday whereby Cornwall Air Ambulance were saying they are losing lifesaving time with air traffic delays due to other helicopter activities at the airfield.

Logan EMB145 noted departing to EDI at about 7.40 this morning, presumably a charter or training and not an early start of scheduled services!

From The BA Source -Oct 2, 2020

British Airways A319 G-EUPY operated BA1350 London Heathrow – Newquay this evening, however the return BA1351 was cancelled due to a technical issue.

They operate with "Shuttle" callsign and "SHT" flight no. as they are BA UK domestic flights.

I didn't realise that; I actually thought that "Shuttle" was nothing more than a marketing brand used for the LHR-GLA/EDI/ MAN and BFS service going back yonks.

I wondered if someone was having a bit of a laugh using "SHT" as a call sign, a bright spark commented "they have left out the I".

Perhaps look the other way then & the problem will go away...or not!.

Possibly down to the good taxpayers of Cornwall to put their money where their words are then.

Hardly a rent-a-mob...................Cornwall Council's head of finance has said that Cornwall Airport Newquay is not currently viable as it looks at how to address its current financial crisis. The airport has seen a dramatic drop in income this year due to the double hit of the collapse of regional airline FlyBe and the coronavirus pandemic. And on Tuesday (October 20) Cornwall councillors heard from the authority's top finance officer, who said that it was "not a viable company".

The admission came at a meeting of the council's customer and support services overview and scrutiny committee today. It follows councillor Stephen Rushworth asking what the situation was with the airport and whether the council would have to provide financial support to keep it open. He said that the airport was important for Cornwall and that there was concern about its future.

Tracie Langley, the council's chief operating officer, said that the council was asking the Government to provide financial support to help the airport but said that, to date, the Government had only offered to provide a loan. Ms Langley said: "Cornwall Airport Limited is not a viable company at the moment." She said that while the Government offered a loan that was not what was wanted by the council and said that the council had its own ability to secure a loan if necessary. However she said that as the airport itself was not currently viable it would not be able to secure a loan itself.

Last month the council's Cabinet agreed that it would use £5.6million of £10.2m of funding which has been earmarked for Spaceport Cornwall to bail out the airport if it was unable to secure funding from the Government.

Ms Langley told the committee: "If our Cabinet believe that they want to make cash available to the airport because the Government has not been able to help they have already made it known that they will utilise the money we have for the spaceport."
