easyJet has launched its first flights on a new domestic route from Cornwall Airport Newquay to Inverness Airport, providing customers in the South West with more options to reunite with friends and family or take a long-awaited break this summer.

Nestled in the Scottish Highlands, between mountain and sea, Inverness is a city rich in history, arts, culinary delights, and natural beauty. Known as the cultural capital of the Highlands, the city of Inverness is the perfect destination for travellers looking for a cosmopolitan and varied city break, with all the wonders of the Scottish Highlands on its doorstep.
All customers booking flights with easyJet benefit from some of the most flexible policies under its ‘Protection Promise’ which means that customers can book with the confidence that if their plans change, so can their booking.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, said:
"We are delighted to have launched our first flight from Newquay to Inverness on our new twice weekly service for the summer. We know our customers can’t wait to be reunited with friends and family or explore more of the UK, so this new route from Newquay will prove popular for customers in both Newquay and Scotland and further strengthens our UK domestic network, providing customers with great value fares and even more choice this summer."
Pete Downes, Managing Director at Cornwall Airport Newquay, commented:
“We are excited to today welcome the inaugural flight of easyJet’s 5th and newest route from Newquay, to Inverness. Connecting the North East of Scotland to the South West of England, this new route will become the longest scheduled flight within the British Isles when it commences, highlighting the importance of domestic air connectivity for a journey that would otherwise take more than 12 hours by surface transport.
"With the commencement of this 5th new route at Newquay in a matter of weeks we’re delighted to be strengthening our route network with easyJet, offering even better access to and from Cornwall for this summer.”
All easyJet customers will now be able to change their flights this summer without a change fee at any time up to two hours before departure, providing even more last-minute flexibility. Unlike other airlines, there are no restrictions on dates or destination; customers can transfer to any flights currently on sale up to the end of September 2022, and to any other destination on the airline’s network which spans 35 countries across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. This means that if some travel restrictions are impacting their destination country, such as self-isolation in destination or on return to the UK, customers can easily change their trip to another country on easyJet’s network. Plus, should a mandatory hotel quarantine impact a customer’s travel destination this summer, customers can now request a refund for their flight within four weeks before departure if the restriction is still in place, even if their flights are still operating.
The safety and wellbeing of all customers and crew remains easyJet’s highest priority and the airline continues to have a number of biological safety measures in place onboard in line with guidance from the relevant authorities. This includes daily enhanced cabin disinfection effective in protecting against coronavirus for at least 24 hours and mandatory mask wearing for customers and crew. All easyJet aircraft are already fitted with HEPA filters, similar to those used in hospitals, which filter 99.97% of airborne contaminants in the cabin, including viruses and bacteria.
