Make use of codeshare agreements
Codeshare and interline agreements are arrangements put in place by airlines to enable passengers to transition seamlessly for onward connections. This means you won’t have to worry about re-checking your bag in London and you don’t have to go through security there either. So, if you’re heading to New York and book a ticket from Cornwall Airport Newquay to JFK, you and your bag will check in in Newquay and check out in New York.
Perfect for long haul breaks, you’ll be travelling on one ticket and pay one fare from origin to destination. The additional benefit of a codeshare agreement is that onward connections are guaranteed by the airline, so if there’s a delay on the first leg of your journey, they’ll make sure you get there.
Treat yourself to a short haul break
While you can soak up the sun in either Faro or Alicante direct from Cornwall Airport, Heathrow opens up a world of possibilities for city breaks, summer sun or winter ski weekends.

It’s the perfect place to transition to two wheels to really explore the depths of this striking city.
Of course, while city breaks are both interesting and exciting, sometimes you can’t beat some summer sun. You can reach destinations across Greece, Croatia and Italy (to name a few) direct from Heathrow, leaving
you boundless options for a summer getaway, whether it’s a family holiday or couples break.
If you’re more of an action adventurer there are plenty of winter ski destinations to consider too. From the French, Italian and Austrian Alps to Bulgaria, you can now go skiing with only one flight change.
