Cornwall Airport Newquay has welcomed Scottish regional carrier Loganair as its newest airline partner, with the airline to operate four routes from Spring 2020
The airline will begin services from Newquay to Aberdeen and Newcastle on 1 April, Norwich on 3 April and Glasgow on 22 May.
Aberdeen and Newcastle will be year-round for the first time, both between four and seven times per week. Aberdeen will mainly operate via Newcastle, but will be non-stop on Saturdays – then making it the longest non-stop service in the UK mainland.
Glasgow and Norwich will be summer-seasonal routes operating up to three and four times per week respectively. The Norwich service will see East Anglia reconnected to Cornwall for the first time since 2013.
“We welcome Loganair as our newest airline partner at Cornwall Airport Newquay, expanding choice for residents and businesses within our catchment and further enhancing options to fulfil the ever growing inbound tourism demand,” commented Al Titterington, managing director, CAN.
Jonathan Hinkles, Loganair’s managing director said the airline is excited to be working with Cornwall Airport Newquay, adding that they “have been working for some time to develop these routes at just the right level.”
Hinkles added that with more people holidaying in the UK, as well as “growing economic links between Cornwall, the east coast of England and Scotland” the airline are confident the routes will perform well and that business demand will sustain the year-round services.
