Wonder if Rigby will manage to develop Ryanair at Norwich also as that is a Rigby airport.

Great news for Exeter airport as this will surely provide more competition and an alternative to BRS for those in the West Country

At last an alternative to Flybe! Flying from Exeter you're punished finacially for that pleasure by Flybe. Hopefully fares will come down in the future.
Great news all round

Only overlap is on the Malaga route. Flybe operate 4 weekly Monday Thursday Saturday and Sunday. Ryanair will operate 2 weekly Wednesday and Sunday. Only clash is on Sundays with Ryanair operating in the morning and Flybe in the afternoon and night. Ryanair will end up complimenting Flybe on an underserved route they aren't going to force them out and aren't competition on their bread and butter routes with the Q400s.

Road links to EXT airport are superb including the M5 and the A30 that runs literally right next to the airport. Is there potential for a train station for the airport as I notice that the railway line actually runs very close by the airport too.

Previous management at EXT wanted to protect Flybe from the LCC's by not offering deals to them. Has this now changed?

I believe the line that runs closest is the Exeter to Waterloo line, which is single track for large stretches, so capacity would probably be an issue if you were taking about additional trains.

There is a recently opened train station just north of the airport at the newly developed town of Cranbrook. A bus service connects Exeter with the station and airport. Whilst not entirely convienant at around two miles away, it does offer the possibility for expansion in the future.

After the big announcment about FR flights from EXT they've now disappeared again from Ryanair booking engine? Flight dates are still in bold on the calendar part of the booking site, then 'no flights available' show for all dates. Some backtracking going on, or just FR messing about with aircraft positioning in the face of more strikes?? Anyone have any insight?

What is the Flybe network profitability like in Exeter? Are all routes profitable? I would be keen to hear what Exeter Airport & Rigby Group think about the current Flybe issues. Perhaps they have already helped them with airport deals and subsidies?

Would easyJet be interested in operating from Exeter to the likes of Scotland/Northern Ireland?

KLM to Amsterdam?

TUI have cancelled the Las Palmas summer 19 season for some reason . It will operate again from November 19 with an Exeter based TUI 737

Is the answer on another thread in as much as will Tenerife switch from Norwegian to a TUI based aircraft in place of LPA?

Norwegian are closing the Tenerife base so it would be difficult although not impossible to crew it from the Gatwick base or even use a Gatwick based aircraft (currently the LGW-TFS on a Tuesday is a straight there and back afternoon to late evening).

Currently the booking engine shows no change to EXT-TFS (still D8) but LPA is not bookable

Probably will try to switch the based TUI 737 onto Tenerife on a Tuesday and put the Palma on something else. With the TUI based 737 doing Mahon + Zakynthos on Monday, it's rather harder to rescue the Las Palmas in the same sort of way.

Looks like the 4 th based Dash 8 is staying at Exeter for the summer with the Paris continuing as a double daily and extra flights to AMS and EDI

That makes 4 based Dash , 1 E195 and a TUI B738 not bad for Exeter !!

Plus 6 weekly flights from Ryanair. 2019 should see some decent growth!

The Devon Live website reports smoke in the cockpit of the Embraer 195 operating flight BE4321 to Alicante at 8am. The aircraft had lined up for departure on Runway 26 when the emergency was declared. All passengers and crew were evacuated via the emergency slides.
The aircraft has been recovered to the Flybe hangars and the airport re-opened at around 09:10.
