FLYBE, the former British/Jersey European Airways, has come up with a robust denunciation of plans by Sutton Harbour Plc to develop a new south west airport on the A30 east of Plymouth. Managing director Jim French says that Exeter Airport is ideally suited to become the key airport for the Southwest. ”Its central position and excellent road access via the M5 and A30 make Exeter the obvious choice for expansion,” he says. ”The proposals for a totally new airport are pipe dreams and the environmental sacrifice would be totally unjustified. These proposals calling for the closure of both Exeter and Plymouth airports and the building of a new airport in the region are ludicrous”. In the meantime Malcolm Naylor, previously at FlyBE has joined Sutton Harbour as strategy director.
