This is your captain calling


Tomorrow’s flight into Newquay Airport on the newly-established Glasgow route will be piloted by the son of the part owners of Hendra Holiday Park in Newquay.

Ben Hyatt

At 27 years old,  Newquay-born captain Ben Hyatt is one of the youngest pilots to become a captain within Loganair and this is the first time he has had the opportunity to fly into his home town airport.

He is the son of Hendra Holiday Park part owners Bob and Janine Hyatt, while his twin brother Jonathon is a director.

He said: “When the new route was established into Newquay I was keen to get the opportunity to pilot a flight down. It will be great to fly over my home county and land at Newquay, even though I’ll only be on the ground long enough for quick cup of coffee with my parents before taking the flight back to Glasgow!”

Al Titterington, MD of Newquay Cornwall Airport, added: “Introducing this new Glasgow route with Loganair and franchise partner Flybe is proving to be very popular and we are proud to hear that Captain Ben Hyatt will be flying into Newquay Cornwall Airport for the first time in his commercial career this week. We look forward to welcoming his flight.”
