Long answer short is that it doesn't. I think Flybe have only been able to claim minimal amounts due to the revenues that the route is able to generate. The PSO is subject to shortfalls to projected revenue budgets and not a guaranteed amount per operation.

Does anyone know who the bidders are for the PSO on the nqy-London route ?

assume Flybe want to keep it but has anyone shown interest ?

Earlier details on this thread of Newquay’s possible involvement in Virgin Galactic’s space rocket programme, especially those relating to the B747 launch aircraft, reminded me of an interesting chat I had at the airfield in 1976 with the then boss - Group Captain Harry Archer. He was explaining the principles of airborne launching of small fast aircraft from bigger slower ones as I admired a large framed picture hanging in his office showing aircrew and aircraft associated with the 1960’s American X15 project. He was on loan in the USA at the time and flew the B52 launch aircraft so was a genuine expert on the subject. I considered myself fortunate to be in his company and hear of his experiences. Also in the superb picture was the X15 pilot, a young Neil Armstrong.

I’ve always remembered our short but fascinating conversation and now find it quite amazing that although rather tenuous, the link between St Mawgan/Newquay and air launched vehicles goes back over 40 years! Happy days!

Regards….Paul

Just to note that SEN didn’t “fail”, it was moved to STN.

Looks like NQY-LGW has been on a 175 for several days now - is this a permanent change?

Didn’t think the swap to E75 ops was supposed to happen just yet so it might be that an E95 is down for mx at the moment ?

out of curiosity how many routes would NQY need to sustain before it gets based aircraft and crew rather than night stopping crew based elsewhere ?

They are eventually dropping LGW to E75 so that’s a capacity reduction, could we see two E75s based to operate say LGW x4 daily and MAN x3 daily?

They'd have to cut them from somewhere else though as from 2020 they'll only have 15 jets and if the bases stay as they are they'll need 3 at MAN, 3 at BHX, 3 at CWL, 2 at DSA, 1 at NQY, 1 at SOU and 1 at EXT and 1 for spare that's assuming they don't change anything.

NQY-AMS would be an excellent link for onward travel. Beats LGW hands down for connections.

I can think of a thousand better ways to spend the money rather than subsidise a route that has stood on its own two feet for decades.

Am I right in thinking that this pso only pays out in the event the route doesn’t cover its costs and that it’s actually costing the tax payer very little to underwrite ?

as for other routes yes I agree AMS must be fairly high up the list for city hopper now as it’s one of the few uk regional airports without a klm connection

i would also suggest that the current EI regional DUB-NQY route could be a candidate to go twice daily to cash in on the expanding EI network ex Dublin

BE

Rumour from within the BE cabin and flight crew community is that BE will open a small crew base at NQY from S19.

Makes sense with the big summer operation they have but not sure about winter when there is only LGW and MAN? (Although another back galley rumour has it BHX will become year round as well)

I know in summer that MAN crews are forever night stopping in NQY on 2 and 3 day trips to cover the NQY-LGW flights on the jet.

Interesting for NQY if this turns out to be more than a rumour although I have my doubts personally

Makes sense. How small is small ? What’s the smallest that would be considered a base ? 2?

1xE75 is pretty much occupied on the LGW run, however I personally think they could better utilize it but probably can’t due to ground delays at LGW.

Other than that MAN x2 daily with decent scope to go x3 I’d of thought, AN, mid day and late evening ?, bhx daily, how about AMS/CDG? Do AF/KLM still have the limit to codeshares that would prevent BE operating ex NqY with codeshare ?

I really do think that a LH/BE with LH codeshare to the likes of FRA would work well considering the popularity of Cornwall with German tourists

Also looks like the E75 returned to BHX late last night and was replaced by E95 FBEG as the resident NQY ejet

SAS will fly twice weekly. Certainly an unexpected route.
