New airport route revealed


Stobart Air has announced details of a new route from Cornwall to Northern Ireland beginning this summer.

The Cornwall Airport Newquay to Belfast route will commence on June 28, initially flying three times a week (Monday, Wednesday and Saturday).

Stobart Air has also added a four-times weekly link between Exeter and Dublin, which will get underway on August 30.

Stobart Air has called on UK & Irish Governments to develop a vaccine passport system to allow vaccinated people to resume travel.

MD Andy Jolly said: “The aviation industry needs a clear plan for when and how air travel can safely resume in line with vaccination rollout programmes. We are pleased to add Exeter-Dublin and Newquay Cornwall-Belfast to our route network, which are subject to a timeline that provides certainty for airlines, airports and customers, and which will cater for both business and leisure travellers with direct, convenient and cost-effective flights.”
