Later this month will see the resumption of the popular seasonal flights from Newquay Airport to Düsseldorf in Germany.
Operated by Lufthansa regional franchise partner Eurowings, from June 20 the airline is offering a weekly Saturday service to this important city in the heart of the Rhein-Ruhr region using Bombardier CRJ-200 aircraft.
“We are delighted to reinstate our summer flights between Newquay and Düsseldorf,” said Lufthansa Vice President Oliver Wagner. “The south west region of the UK is well known to German tourists owing to the popularity of the Rosamunde Pilcher novels that have been made into a TV drama series here.”
Karen Medweth, Newquay Cornwall Airport’s head of commercial development, added: “We are delighted to welcome Lufthansa back to Newquay Cornwall Airport. The Lufthansa Düsseldorf route saw extremely good passenger numbers last year, with almost 10% higher load factors than the Lufthansa average across its whole operation.
“Many of Cornwall’s annual international tourists come from Germany and Lufthansa’s services provide convenient direct flights to the region for leisure and business visitors alike.”
