Loganair to fly to Cornwall

UK regional carrier Loganair is to resurrect the non-stop link between Glasgow and Newquay Cornwall Airport from 5 April 2012 retaining the domestic connection for the summer months.  The route is currently flown by Plymouth-based Air Southwest but the airline is set to close later this year – it will terminate its own flights on the route at the end of September.

Loganair, which operates as a franchise partner of UK low fare carrier Flybe, will offer up to five weekly non-stop flights on the route.  The link has proved popular with travellers as the only alternative to flying is an 11hr train or 9hr road journey.  It will join Dundee to Birmingham as the airline’s only current route south to England.  Flight time will be around 2hrs making it the longest internal UK air route.  A 34-passenger Saab 340 is expected to be used on the service.  Loganair is a franchise partner of Flybe, who also operate into Newquay. www.loganair.co.uk
