Airport reveals new route


Ryanair has today launched its Cornwall Airport Newquay summer schedule for next year, with a new route to Faro and two other routes to Alicante and Frankfurt Hahn.

The new service to the Algarve will operate twice weekly, along with Alicante and Frankfurt, delivering an estimated 57,000 customers.

Airport MD, Al Titterington, said: “We’re delighted that Ryanair are growing their operation from Cornwall with the introduction of a third route to Faro in 2017 illustrating the strong demand for sun destinations from Cornwall and the south west.

“Our positive relationship with Ryanair is blossoming and their commitment to grow services from the region after only one year of operation is particularly pleasing. The new connection direct to the Algarve should prove very popular with families, golfers and surfers and offers a great new option for those wishing to start their holiday from their local airport.”

Ryanair’s head of communications, Robin Kiely, added: “Customers can look forward to even lower fares when they make advance bookings for summer 2017. As our recent guidance confirmed, Ryanair expects average fares to fall by between 10% to 12% in the six months to March 2017.”
