Serious and prolonged flooding in the South West of England has cut off major rail and road links to the Cornish peninsula. This has led to an increased demand for flights between Exeter (EGTE) and Newquay Cornwall (EGDG/EGHQ) to other UK cities. In response this, we are operating the following additional services on a temporary basis:

  • Exeter-Birmingham (2x Jetstream 41 daily)
  • Newquay-London City (an extra 1x Jetstream 41 daily)
A full flight schedule for these temporary services is available at:

NB: These routes are available using the "Charters" button/tab in ACARS between the 11th and 25th Feburary, they will not show up using the normal schedule search functions or outside of that date range.
