First month of Heathrow route sees passenger numbers soar

Back to Press releases

In April 2019, Cornwall Airport Newquay saw over 15k passengers travel between Newquay and London Heathrow in the first month of the route’s operation, representing a 4% growth compared to the London Gatwick route in the same month last year, despite there being less overall seats available.

The Airport also saw a 3% growth in passenger numbers as a whole in April 2019 compared to April last year.

Cornwall Airport Newquay’s Managing Director, Al Titterington commented: ‘We’re delighted to see the route perform so strongly in its first month, the additional frequencies better support (London) day returns for business and make connectivity to/from other global destinations that much easier”.

He continued: ‘The Heathrow link is key for Cornwall, for both outbound travel and inbound tourism and we are confident that we will continue to see the route grow further in the coming months.’ 

Flybe launched the route on 31 March 2019 which flies four times a day, seven days per week between Newquay and London Heathrow.
