Newquay Airport (NQY) has released details of a new ‘codeshare’ agreement which will enable passengers to fly from Cornwall to more than 145 destinations across the world on a single ticket.
The codeshare, between Flybe and Emirates, means international passengers flying onward with Emirates will be able to check their bags at Newquay and not have to collect them until their final destination, be it Dubai, Singapore or Sydney.
Newquay Airport MD, Al Titterington, said: “This new codeshare agreement between Flybe and Emirates will provide passengers in Cornwall with the freedom to travel anywhere on the Emirates global network at the click of a button and is another exciting development in the continued growth of Newquay Cornwall Airport.”
Laurie Berryman, Emirates VP, UK, added: “Our new codeshare agreement with Flybe will provide passengers in Newquay with increased choice, flexibility and ease of connection to Dubai and on bound to destinations on Emirates’ global network.
“Offering a smoother, more convenient travel experience, it will also make travel into Newquay more accessible for international tourists.”
Flybe’s current schedule from Newquay will allow passengers to connect to five Emirates services departing daily from airports across the UK including Birmingham, Manchester and London Gatwick.
