Flybe takes off from Newquay


Flybe returned to Cornwall Airport Newquay yesterday (Oct 30), two and a half years after going into administration.

Now under new ownership, the regional airline is operating double daily flights to London Heathrow and daily to Manchester.

Dave Pflieger, Flybe CEO, said: “We believe it is critical to add routes like this to our network to not only support Flybe’s mission of providing customers with better regional connectivity, but also ensure we continue to provide convenience and comfort at a great value.”

Amy Smith, head of commercial at Cornwall Airport Newquay, added: “It’s fantastic to be welcoming the new Flybe to Cornwall Airport Newquay. The daily flights to London Heathrow and Manchester will add much needed extra capacity as well as additional options for passengers on two of our key markets.”


  1. Does this mean I can get my funds back I lost when flybe went into administration I had 12 flights booked with them as was living in Cornwall and working in Manchester no refunds was given disgusting airline before avoid at all costs .

  2. A connection to Newquay from Teesside or Newcastle would be very welcome. Train Darlington to Penzance takes 9 hours, without delays. My understanding is that Loganair pulled out of Newquay due to the airport managers giving preferential terms to the new Flybe – after Loganair had helped Newquay airport reopen after Covid.
