Any indication on whether the PSO tender for London flights is likely to come to anything? Should be an announcement soon I thought?

Unconfirmed but Sean M on twitter who is very good with these things. Eastern Airways have won the PSO and will operate to Gatwick on the ATR 72

They can look forward to constant changes to the schedule, high fares and the ATR being subbed by the rest of the Eastern fleet. Such a shame BACF didn’t bid. I can’t see this serving the community well.

I would expect the community to have specified a minimum standard of service in the contract.

Inaugural Eastern flight tomorrow Newquay-Gatwick.

If Flightradar is to be believed (...) the operating aircraft G-IACZ arrived at NQY tonight from, er, Biggin Hill.

Not a great time to be launching a relatively poorly advertised route. Lets hope they have some luck (and good reliability). Wonder what loads are like…

I wonder how many were on the flight versus how many of these mouth-breathers drove to the airport to stage their protest.

Dublin loads have been very good. Judging by the fares for flights in the next month, the route is doing very well.

The final tranche of summer services beginning this week: easyJet-Glasgow; BA – Heathrow; Edelweiss – Zürich. Also, Eastern have announced the PSO will increase to 17 per week from 11th July. Quite a contrast to almost total closure 16 months ago.

Loganair, the UK’s largest regional airline, has today announced that it will suspend operations at Cornwall Airport Newquay this winter. Daily services to Manchester and onwards to Aberdeen, together with non-stop flights to Edinburgh and Newcastle, will be completely suspended between November 2022 and March 2023. In all, almost 300 flights scheduled to Newquay over the coming winter season have been withdrawn from the airline’s schedule.
We’re most disappointed that short-sighted and short-term decisions by the airport’s management to incentivise unsustainable operations by other airlines leave no prospect of winter flights remaining viable, particularly against a backdrop of high fuel prices and rising inflation. In the meantime, we’ll be directing our efforts towards other UK regional airports such as Southampton, Exeter and Cardiff, where airport managements recognise and appreciate the enormous value that year-round, sustainable regional air services can bring to their communities and local economies.”
