05.12.18 AIRLINE NEWS-FLYBE will apparently transfer their current 3x daily Newquay service to Heathrow on 31st March 2019. Scheduled services from the far west of England to Gatwick began in 1969 when Westward Airways Islanders inaugurated services to Plymouth and Newquay in between their Heathrow shuttle services. These flights were subsidised by the then West of England Development Board, an arrangement continued by its successors through the 'Brymon years' until the present. Presumably they have increased the level of subsidy!
