- Flybe launched two new routes to London Heathrow (LHR) on 31 March, with it now connecting Cornwall Airport Newquay (NQY) and Guernsey (GCI) to Europe’s biggest hub. Flights on the 338-kilometre route from Cornwall will be flown four times daily, while the link from the Channel Islands, a sector spanning 272 kilometres, will see a daily rotation. Both routes will be flown by the carrier using its fleet of Q400s, and neither faces direct competition. Along with adding its third and fourth routes to Heathrow, joining existing services from Aberdeen and Edinburgh which have now been operating for two years, the airline added another UK capital link from Cornwall Airport Newquay, with it beginning a five times weekly service from London Southend (SEN). The 417-kilometre route, facing no direct competition, will be operated by Stobart Air using its fleet of ATR 72-600.
