Loganair has begun its direct service out of Newquay Airport to Scotland’s biggest city, Glasgow.
The new service started just before Easter (April 5), operating a Loganair Saab 340 aircraft, flying up to five times a week.
Initially, the new route will operate every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with an additional flight on Mondays beginning on June 25 until August 27, for the peak summer season.
Loganair’s chief operating officer, Jonathan Hinkles, who embarked on the maiden flight from Glasgow on Thursday, said: “We are extremely pleased to launch today what is an entirely new route for Loganair.
“The Newquay to Glasgow flights offer our passengers frequent, convenient and cost-effective services to one of the most popular visitor destinations in the UK.”
Al Titterington, MD at Newquay Cornwall Airport, comments: “The new Glasgow route demonstrates our continued commitment to the Cornish economy, feeding a steady footfall of visitors into the region for local businesses to capitalise on. This popular route is returning thanks to our new partner Loganair, a franchise partner of Flybe.”
