Heathrow has welcomed Flybe’s route from Cornwall Airport Newquay. The year-round service operates from Heathrow Terminal 2: The Queens Terminal and is operated by a 78-seat Q400 aircraft, offering four flights a day, seven days a week.
Celebrations were held to mark the start of this important new service, starting with a breakfast hosted by the Cornwall Chamber of Commerce.
Cornwall Airport Newquay’s Managing Director, Al Titterington, said: “It’s fantastic that all our hard work to make sure that Cornwall Airport Newquay has direct access to Europe’s busiest hub has finally come to fruition. The worldwide connectivity that this brings opens up a world of opportunity for Cornwall.
“Now we have direct flights to Heathrow, we will see the strength of Newquay and Cornwall’s brand abroad grow even further, helping to attract more valuable international tourism to our beautiful county.”
