Ryanair officially launched its new Alicante and Frankfurt Hahn services from Cornwall Airport Newquay yesterday.
Both routes are operating twice weekly, with Alicante on Wednesdays and Sundays and Frankfurt Hahn operating on Thursdays and Sundays.
Cornwall Airport Newquay’s MD, Al Titterington, said: “It’s fantastic to welcome Ryanair back to Cornwall today with the start of these two new services.
“To give the first visitors arriving from Germany on the inaugural flight from Frankfurt-Hahn their first taste of Cornwall we’ve welcomed them all with a Cornish Pasty from Cornish Premier Pasties.
“With the popularity of Cornwall in Germany, this new route should prove a welcome boost to the tourism sector here in Cornwall.
“With the start of the Alicante as well, we’re delighted to again be offering a direct summer sun route for our local market, without the need to travel out of county.”
