Flybe statement of flight BE806

Flybe has said it regrets the inconvenience experienced by its passengers following the landing of flight BE806:

Flybe can confirm that the above flight landed normally and without incident at Newquay airport. However, due to a minor technical fault, it was deemed necessary that the 40 passengers disembark the aircraft on the taxiway, which they did without incident before being bussed to the terminal. As is standard industry practice, the airport’s emergency services attended the aircraft.
