Flybe set to operate bigger aircraft from Newquay Airport
After the announcement of removing the ADF, followed by Ryan Air confirming they will be operating two news routes from and to the airport. Now there is a third bit of good news for the airport with the announcement today by Flybe confirming it will be operating larger jets from the airport.
The current fleet of aircraft Flybe operate from Newquay Airport is the turbo-prop Dash 8. These will be replaced by the larger 118 seat jet engined Embraer E195. This is good news, as these larger aircraft can carry 40 more passengers than the current aircraft and will reduce the flight transit time by 10 minutes.
These aircraft will operate on the Newquay/Gatwick and Gatwick/Newquay route covered by the PSO.
