Cornwall’s air link with London Heathrow restarts again for summer 2020 with a short two month season in July and August (July 2nd to September 7th).
British Airways plan to operate the service five times per week from early July to early September. The switch of the Flybe service from Heathrow to Gatwick from 28 March was seen as a blow to the important inbound tourism market from both the South East of England and internationally via its worldwide connections. This new route will play an important part in developing Cornwall in overseas markets.
Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ Director of Network and Alliances said: “We know that customers enjoy exploring the UK as much as they do going further afield, and Newquay has so much to offer, especially in the summer months.”
Richard Thomasson, Interim Airport Director, Cornwall Airport Newquay adds: “We are delighted British Airways will be flying to Cornwall this summer and to be able to continue to offer this vital link between Cornwall and Heathrow. With such a major global carrier we will be able to offer our passengers one-stop access to the world, while worldwide investors and tourists will benefit from an easier connection to our stunning county.”
