New flights to London Stansted commence from Newquay Cornwall Airport

To celebrate the new London Stansted to Newquay Cornwall Airport route, passengers on Saturday 16 May 2015 were greeted with a warm Cornish welcome, including local treats provided by a number of Cornish businesses including Rodda’s, Boddington’s Berries, Furniss Foods, and St Austell Brewery as well as the latest issue of Cornwall Life Magazine.

The new route is a welcome addition to Newquay Cornwall Airport’s summer route portfolio and its commencement reflects Flybe’s continued commitment to offering passengers fast and convenient access in and out of the county. The daily service will now operate until 29 September 2015 with a flight time of 90 minutes. One-way fares are available from £29.99 including taxes and charges.

Al Titterington, Managing Director, Newquay Cornwall Airport, said: “This new route is a further addition to our expanding summer schedule supporting our overall route development strategy. The introduction of this service will connect Cornwall to the north east of London and an alternative access point to London as well as offering access to key destinations across Europe.

“Stansted will also bolster Cornwall tourism sector, offering easy passage from an affluent catchment area in the UK. We have already seen positive booking numbers and forecast passenger demand to be strong throughout the season.”

Chief Commercial Officer at Flybe, Paul Simmons, said: “Our new summer schedule from London Stansted is now fully operational! Flybe is fully committed to bringing new, accessible routes to our customers and our number one aim remains to bolster regional connectivity across the UK.  We look forward to welcoming  our new customers on board and to providing a fast and convenient way  to travel to this hugely popular summer hotspot and gateway to Cornwall.

Commenting on the launch of this new service, Commercial Director at Stansted Airport, Mats Sigurdson, added :“We’re delighted to welcome Newquay back onto the flight schedules at Stansted and to increase our connections across the UK.  It’s also an important link for the half a million people living in Cornwall who now have direct access to over 170 destinations across Europe and North Africa from Stansted.

“This is also great news for the millions of passengers in London and East of England who now have quick and easy access to one of the UK’s holiday hotspots and I’d like to wish Flybe every success with this new connection which I’m sure will be a very popular addition to the growing Stansted network.”
