Loganair’s popular service between Cornwall and Manchester resumed last Friday (Feb 10).
The UK’s largest regional airline will operate daily to provide customers with easy access for short or long breaks, and flexibility for those doing business between the south west and north west of England.
Coupled with the Cornwall-Manchester reconnection are routes from Cornwall Airport Newquay to Newcastle, Edinburgh, and onward services are available to Aberdeen, the Isle of Man and the Scottish highlands and islands.
Loganair initially planned to recommence its Newquay routes for summer 2023 from March 26 but with increasing demand for the service between Newquay and Manchester, and to meet anticipated demand during the February half-term holiday, the airline brought the route back onto sale in November for a February take off.
Luke Lovegrove, chief commercial officer at Loganair, said: “It’s great to be back at Cornwall Airport Newquay and to be able to offer our customers increased choice and year-round service.
“Customer demand for Summer 2023 has been encouraging – so much so that we took the decision to bring forward the relaunch of our Manchester to Newquay service to today in time for half term.”
Head of commercial at Cornwall Airport Newquay, Amy Smith, added: “The connection between Manchester and Newquay is and always has been one of our most popular routes. We’re delighted to have Loganair back serving this market, as well as other much needed connections to Scotland and the North.
“We look forward to continuing to work closely with Loganair to further build on the relationship and their commitment to Cornwall.”
