The UK’s leading regional airline Loganair (LM/LOG) has confirmed it is relaunching its Manchester Airport (MAN/EGCC) to Cornwall Airport Newquay (NQY/EGHQ) service 1 month and a half ahead of schedule.
Originally planned to return on 26th March 2023 as part of the summer schedule, high demand has meant Loganair will now start the service on the 10th of February and it will run through to the 28th of October.
Luke Lovegrove, chief commercial officer at Loganair, said: “We’re very pleased to announce the early recommencement of our Newquay – Manchester route benefiting those with February half-term travel plans.
“We continue to work closely with the teams at both airports and are keen to maximise the potential of this route in line with our continued commitment to UK regional connectivity.”
Amy Smith, Head of Commercial at Cornwall Airport Newquay, said: “It is fantastic that Loganair has decided to return to Cornwall earlier than expected. Cornwall is more than a summer destination and this February start, as a result of the demand the airline is seeing, is a good indication of that.
“We’re anticipating continued strong growth in passenger numbers next year and are very pleased that Loganair will play a key part in that as one of our valued airline partners.”
You can book the route from today at loganair.com and with a 15kg hold-luggage allowance, and a further 33% discount for children aged 11 and under, both as standard, the route could prove popular with families looking for a break in Cornwall without a long drive.
