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.

Skipness One Foxtrot

In what sense? Internally, or to consumers?

Good lord, that gold/yellow canopy thing is truly hideous. Looks like the kind of Soviet-era public realm architecture you'd expect to find at the other end of a Wizzair route.

IIRC there's an airside shuttle bus for those who don't fancy the long walk. It goes from near the ATR/Regional flight gates (which are bussed anyway).

Local operating costs are high in Germany but prices are low. The tour operator market is big. It is very hard for anyone else to reliably make money.

Great to have another route from LYS (OTP, adding to existing BEG and WAW). About time there was a choice other than EasyJet at what is a pretty uncompetitive airport.

Indeed. Even Banja Luka a hub for Bosnia's predominant travel method, the bus makes more sense than Tuzla. But perhaps the airline is getting a better incentive. I hope FlyBosnia does well to SJJ.
