British Airways to launch Newquay route

Carrier to launch summer route to north coast of Cornwall

British Airways is to launch a route from Heathrow to Newquay this summer, the only direct route from Heathrow.

British Airways has also recently added summer 2020 routes to Greece, Italy, Kosovo, Montenegro and Turkey.

The flight, which will take 70 minutes, will be available on Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from July 2 to September 7, 2020.

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 added: “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.”

Return fares start from £90 in Euro Traveller.
