Cornwall Airport Newquay (CAN) sees the return of flybe as the airport continues to grow its route network. Commencing on 30 October, the regional airline will launch twice daily (Monday to Friday) flights to London Heathrow (daily service at weekends), while also adding a daily link to Manchester.
Maintaining non-stop access to Europe’s busiest hub, and increasing links to the heart of northwest England, is a major development for the Cornish airport: “We’re delighted to be welcoming the new flybe as our 10th airline partner at Newquay. With daily flights to both London Heathrow and Manchester starting this winter, these new routes will add much needed extra capacity as well as additional
options for passengers on two of our major markets,” comments Sam O’Dwyer, Managing Director, Cornwall Airport Newquay.
Returning to the skies under new ownership, the reborn flybe aims to take UK connectivity to a new era in a responsible and sustainable way.
Flybe CEO, Dave Pflieger, commented “We’re delighted to begin flights to and from Cornwall Airport Newquay, connecting one of the UK’s most popular year-round leisure destinations. Passengers
can benefit from up to twice daily flights from London Heathrow and a daily service from Manchester. Flybe provides passengers with convenience, choice and everyday great value, in addition to offering complimentary tea, coffee, juice and biscuits on all flights.”
When its latest airline joins in October, Cornwall Airport Newquay’s airline portfolio will consist of 10 in total: Aer Lingus, British Airways, Eastern Airways, easyJet, Edelweiss, Eurowings, flybe, Loganair, Ryanair and Skybus. With more airlines now than pre-pandemic, CAN has refilled most of its route map: “Offering more airline choice and year-round connectivity is a key focus for us and we’re delighted that this latest announcement offers both of these,” added O’Dwyer.
Fares start from £49.99 to London Heathrow and £29.99 to Manchester on sale at flybe.com from Monday 22 August 2022.
Cornwall Airport Newquay is keeping Cornwall connected this winter with year-round flights to Dublin with Aer Lingus, Manchester and Edinburgh with Loganair, twice daily flights to London Gatwick with Eastern Airways as well as providing a year-round international flight to Alicante with Ryanair.
