- New year-round routes to London Gatwick and Amsterdam
- Up to five extra flights a week to Manchester
- Second aircraft based at Cornwall Airport Newquay
- Total 8 routes with addition of 1,149 flights
Flybe is pleased to announce its final Summer 2020 schedule from Cornwall Airport Newquay which features an additional 1,149 flights and, from 29th March 2020, customers can benefit from the multiple opportunities for onward global connections available through two new year-round routes to London Gatwick and Amsterdam Schiphol. In a move to further strengthen services from Newquay, Flybe will also base a second aircraft at the airport.
The two new routes offer four flights a day to London Gatwick, and six flights a week to Amsterdam, a sought-after destination in its own right. There’s also extra frequency to Flybe’s Manchester hub with an extra five flights a week, bringing the weekly total to a choice of 18 flights in peak summer. This in particular will benefit those travelling for business to and from Manchester with improved timings for convenient day returns.
Seats for the new services will be available for booking online at www.flybe.com from Tuesday 21st January, 2020, effective for travel between 29th March and 24th October 2020.
The new route to London Gatwick, operated under a Public Service Obligation, will replace one-for-one the current four times a day Heathrow flights. The brand new Amsterdam service has been timed to connect conveniently with many of the international airlines offering onward travel to the rest of the world from one of Europe’s busiest hub airports.
Flybe’s Interim Chief Commercial Officer, Oli Byers, says: “I’m pleased that these very positive changes mark the beginning of a stronger, more resilient service for our customers travelling to and from Cornwall. It further strengthens our commitment to providing regional connectivity to destinations across the UK, Europe and beyond. As we complete our re-brand to Virgin Connect later this year, we look forward to delivering a really robust operation together with a great customer experience.”
