Newquay

Newquay Airport recorded a 22% increase in pax for 2017 with a total of 454000. The 2016 equivalent figure was 369000 and there have been four years of double digit growth. Figures for December 2017 were up 18% on the December 2016 total.

Sadly unless something new is announced for 18/19 I suspect that bubble will burst this year.

STN drops to 3 weekly from daily and looks like LGW drops from an E95 x3 mon-fri and x2 sat & sun to an E75 with the same amount of rotations.

It's known the E195s aren't sticking around forever so the drop in capacity to LGW had to happen sooner or later. From BE's perspective it may provide an opportunity to boost profitability by increasing prices and focus on higher yield pax. That said, it's surprising this has happened in conjunction with a significant drop in seats and frequency to STN.

Having you busiest route subsidized by the Govt must help!

Yes.

Suspect there’s an opportunity for someone to step up on the NQY-LON market.

Eventually we will see a LHR connection if and when R3 is built, however the most likely candidate for LON capacity short term I think is likely to be SEN via the flybe franchise.

An outside chance would be via BA who have just gained a significant dollop of LGW slots and with short block times it could help to slot sit the slots.

Seems unlikely while there is a PSO on the route?

Passenger numbers up since they dropped the airport fee.

Norwich take note.

Where those concerned have done very well of course is in developing the ancillary businesses on the airport, that is where the money is earned not from a handful of scheduled services alone.

yes i know that ta, but i was asking about who flies and where from now - seems the once prized london route gets to change and downgrade on a monthly basis - i cannot keep up lol

first it was ryanair twice daily from STN
then add BA in the mix from LGW 3 jets a day then flybe took it over then EZY starts from SEN - has that gone now>?
someone mentioned you can now go from LCY City airport....yes/no?

i cannot keep up - why all the freaking around ?

my sister lives in essex so STN SEN and LCY all good for her to meet me at NQY so we can go onto the ISC - simples?

Love your attitude me ansum

Flybe is your friend here. You can fly direct x3 weekly ex STN, x3 daily ex LGW or ex SEN with a connection via MAN.

Flybe did apply for slots at LCY but this never started. I would imagine eventually either Flybe or BA will fly the route but currently nobody does.

thanks old chap -

i think 3 a week doesn't work for us with the accomodation change over day nor a jaunt around the UK via MAN - and LGW is too far for her

looks like it will be the GWR sleeper from PAD to PNZ

Weekly Eurowings flight to/from Berlin TXL this summer on a Q400 opb LGW on saturdays. On the ground at NQY 1535-1620. Operates May 5 to Aug 8. This in addition to DUS and STR (there will also be TXL-JER this year).

Btw, Eurowings advertises connections to/from NQY on its website to places such as Split, Venice and Palma.

With a sunday evening tv movie set in Cornwall on German TV once a month, this is no surprise. Rosamunde Pilcher must be the only Brit awarded an OBE for causing a German invasion of the British Isles - is she known in the UK at all?

From wikipedia:

[Pilcher's] books are especially popular in Germany because the national TV station ZDF (Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen) has produced more than 100 of her stories for TV starting with "Day of the Storm". These TV films are some of the most popular programmes on ZDF. Both ZDF programme director Dr. Claus Beling and Rosamunde Pilcher were awarded the British Tourism Award in 2002 for the positive effect the books and the TV versions had on Cornwall and Devon tourism within the UK. Notable film locations include Prideaux Place, an Elizabethan Manor with extensive grounds in Padstow; the 9th century stately home in St Germans, Port Eliot; The Duke of Cornwall Hotel, an 1863 Victorian Gothic building in Plymouth; and much of the coast line of Chapel Porth.
