easyJet (U2/EZY) has announced two new routes to Newquay Cornwall Airport from Manchester and Glasgow.
Flights from Manchester start on 21st June 2021 and will operate five-times-per-week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
The Glasgow flights start 29th June and operate twice-weekly on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
easyJet’s UK Country Manager Ali Gayward said “We know that people want to travel as soon as they can and as soon as it is safe to do so and so we want to ensure they have even more destinations to choose from when making a booking for this summer.
“And while we remain optimistic for summer travel, given the successful rollout of the vaccination programme which will be an important trigger for the Government to begin to unwind some restrictions, our Protection Promise means that customers can book with confidence knowing that if they are unable to travel or their plans change so can their flights or holiday. And unlike other airlines, we will offer customers refunds if they are impacted by a travel ban, even if their flight is not cancelled, which is industry-leading.
“In the meantime, we continue to focus on offering a network of the most attractive destinations and ensuring we will be ready to ramp up our flights so we can take our customers away to see friends and family or on long-awaited holiday breaks when they can safely take to the skies again.”
Peter Jones of Cornwall Newquay Airport added: “Domestic tourism is a vital driver of Cornwall’s visitor economy, and I’m confident that these new services will be warmly welcomed by all those who are looking ahead with hope to the prospect of a UK staycation this summer.”
The new routes will add around 30,000 additional seats between Cornwall and Northern England & Scotland.
