Flybe has announced a seventh route to Cornwall for summer 2014 with a three times weekly service between the UK’s surfing capital, Newquay, and Southend, thus taking over the route which was dropped by easyJet recently.
The service will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays between 16 May and 27 September. Departure from Newquay will be at 11:05, with arrival in Southend at 12:25. The return flight takes off from Southend at 12:50 and lands back in Newquay at 14:10.
Paul Simmons, Flybe’s chief commercial officer, commented, “It was an easy decision to keep this route alive. We will be flying it for an extended four-month summer season, and look forward to welcoming all of our new customers on board. It’s a win-win for everyone and demonstrates Flybe’s commitment to supporting local economies through the development of popular leisure travel destinations.”
