New Domestic UK Route on British Airways

Recently Flybe announced they would move their Newquay to London route from Heathrow to Gatwick. This left a nice little void for British Airways to launch another route from the regions, which will no doubt be a great option if you live in the South West and wanted a more optimal connection to far away destinations. This is in addition to the several other summer seasonal routes for 2020 which we posted here.

Flights are already on sale over at ba.com with flights operating on Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday between 2nd July – 7th September 2020. The flight times are as follows:

Neil Chernoff, British Airways’ Director of Network and Alliances commented the following:

“We know that customers enjoy exploring the UK as much as they do going further afield, and Newquay has so much to offer, especially in the summer months.”

Richard Thomasson, Interim Airport Director, Cornwall Airport Newquay said:

“We are delighted British Airways will be flying to Cornwall this summer and to be able to continue to offer this vital link between Cornwall and Heathrow.  With such a major global carrier we will be able to offer our passengers one-stop access to the world, while worldwide investors and tourists will benefit from an easier connection to our stunning county.”
