Airport website is indicating that BA will not return before July, but that "London" will operate with airline TBC from 28th March?

Have heard that EasyJet are planning to add the following destinations from NQY from late June

Glasgow - 2 x Weekly
London Gatwick - 3 x Weekly
Manchester - 5 x Weekly

Hoping to capitalise on what might be a staycation Summer I guess, as well as finding things for their fleet to do. Good to see though if true.

The EasyJet booking engine says that the Newquay to Glasgow and Manchester services are operated by a "partner airline". Would that be Loganair?

No easyJet flights have been loaded yet. What's appearing on the easyJet booking engine is a flight through "worldwide". New routes are scheduled to be announced next week so will see then if they come to fruition.

Looks like LM operating the shortly to be announced NQY -LHR PSO service (and with rather inconvenient timing!) Though its PSO and not necessarily designed specifically for connections.

Easyjet
had a look at the fares to/from Glasgow today. It must be selling like hotcakes! Most flights have one-way fares above £60 one way and some are over £100. Encouraging signs.

Zurich

More good news for NQY - just been reading that Edelweiss have filed for a weekly ZRH-NQY service July - Sept. Flights not yet bookable but fingers crossed.

As a regular visitor to Cornwall I was browsing for accommodation in either Newquay or Falmouth in May and June - no hope! Either no availability or sky high prices so clearly there is significant staycation demand - I'm not surprised the short season EasyJet flights are supposedly selling so well.

Two of the biggest Hotels along cliff road in Falmouth are now retirement homes and luxury flats, if you want to stay in that area you need a converted transit and a mattress!

Looking forward to locking the gates and going in to voluntary lockdown. Of course if it hisses down with rain all Summer that will be great for the airline industry as everyone remembers why they took holidays overseas in the first place.

Haven't looked at the detail but do I read the local Council has turned to Mr B's application for space tourism from NQY!

A lot of short-stay accommodation has disappeared from Falmouth over the last 5 years with the expansion of the Uni at Penryn - lots of the old B&B's have sold up . As Groundhog says there has also been a big expansion of retirement homes and second homes.

Sorry to disappoint the spotters

The face to face element for all leaders has to be debatable as different countries are at different stages as far as Covid is concerned. However in contrast a friend in Helston is telling me of firm plans for heightened security in the town while it’s on, and gave me the impression it was more than just rumour, although the local (non spotter) rumour mill translates into AF1 at Culdrose!

Remember AF1 is any plane the POTUS flies in, therefore it could be one of his 757ís. AF1 even came to SOU a couple of years back!
