Should be ok,it very rarely gets delays due to bad weather like Bristol,and TUI,Ryanair as well as the scilly isles etc are regular users,I think that it is owned by the same people who own other airports,the manes of which escape me .
It's also an emergency airport so has to be operational for diversions from other airports. A friend works there and, although they only have one flight on Christmas Day, they still have to have sufficient staff on duty in case of emergencies.

That was fog at London city and the other London airports,in general the weather at Exeter airport is considered better for air traffic than a lot of other airports,hence the emergency airport scenario :)

Initially it was delayed due to poor visibility at Exeter, along with the Manchester and Jersey flights. My flight was delayed further when the weather moved across to City. In a pub in the Smoke now, so who cares 😁 Come on City!

Hardly a bid, more like Branson robbing everyone, again! Guess that's the shirt sponsor gone!

Bearing in mind the losses they have made, I'm surprised they got £2 million. 1p a share, painful for the people who invested.

At least the club is fairly stable now financially, but it looks like we'll be in the market for a new sponsor sooner rather than later.

Please, no betting / payday loan companies.
