Confusion over the actions of Flybe (BTN 25 November 2019) and the future of flights between Newquay and London was partially resolved last week after British Airways stepped in on the Heathrow service.
Flights by Airbus A320 will operate the 210-mile route on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between 2 July and 7 September, compared with 28 services a week currently being operated by Flybe.
The news followed Flybe’s unexpected announcement four weeks ago that it was withdrawing from the Newquay – Heathrow route next month and would operate the service to and from Gatwick instead.
BA so far has announced only a summer service while making the point it will now be the only direct route between the Cornish airport and London’s main hub. It adds to new BA summer routes to Greece, Italy, Kosovo, Montenegro and Turkey.
Cornwall Airport Newquay interim director Richard Thomasson said: “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.”
