Flights underway on London City route


Air Southwest is celebrating the start of its twice-daily service from Newquay to London City Airport.

From today, Cornwall travellers can fly into the heart of the capital in little over an hour. Air Southwest managing director Peter Davies said: “Today Air Southwest is revolutionising air travel between the far south west and the capital and giving people a real choice.

“It means Air Southwest offers up to six flights a day from Newquay to London, and customers can mix and match flights to and from London City with our existing London Gatwick services to fit around their working day.

“We’ve had enormous support from Cornwall’s business community since we announced these flights. London City Airport is entirely geared to the needs of the business traveller and we’re delighted to be offering such a fast and efficient service direct into the capital.”
