easyJet today launched its first ever flight to Liverpool from Newquay Cornwall Airport.
easyJet’s inaugural flight arrived at the John Lennon Airport at 12.15pm – carrying the first of thousands of expected visitors travelling to and from the region with easyJet this summer.
This is the second seasonal route that easyJet, the UK’s largest airline, has introduced at Newquay Airport; just two weeks ago it launched flights to London Southend.
Ali Gayward, commercial manager for easyJet, said: “I hope Liverpool will prove popular with residents in the South West looking for a gateway to the North of England and for travellers looking for an easy and affordable city break.
“Both the London and Liverpool flights to Newquay will go a long way in boosting tourism and I’m sure they will perform well.”
The airport’s MD, Al Titterington, added: “Both Liverpool and London Southend are brand new destinations and will appeal to both business and leisure passengers.
“The service also offers more efficient access to visitors coming to Cornwall by removing long and cumbersome journey times by road or rail.”
