New flights to Cornwall this summer as Blue Islands add third new route
Channel Island residents will enjoy new direct flights to Cornwall this summer as Blue Islands adds three flights per week from Guernsey/Jersey to Cornwall Airport Newquay which commences 3 June 2019.
Rob Veron, CEO, Blue Islands said,
Following the recent introduction of Guernsey – London Southend and Guernsey – Liverpool services, the exciting addition of Cornwall Airport Newquay to the Blue Islands route network provides the most convenient access to this stunning part of the UK direct from the Channel Islands. Blue Islands continually evaluates new route opportunities and this further demonstrates commitment to serving Guernsey and Jersey air links.
The service will see flights operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the summer season between 3 June and 31 August 2019. Flights will start in Guernsey with a short stop in Jersey before continuing to Cornwall Airport Newquay, with fares from £49.99 one way bookable at flybe.com.
Al Titterington, Managing Director, CAN commented,
The Channel Islands are currently hard to reach for passengers in our catchment, with them having to either drive hours to the nearest airport with direct services or having to drive to the UK South Coast and take a ferry, with this being a journey which could take up to eight hours or more. By offering this seamless one-hour flight to Jersey and onwards to Guernsey, we now have a much more sustainable and customer friendly option for people wanting to reach this part of the world, and for those in the Channel Islands wanting to visit our great county.
Mr Veron added
Cornwall and the Channel Islands are both stunning regions with many similarities, the addition of direct flights means residents can now appreciate discovering the respective unique cultures and subtle nuances that exist beyond the stunning coastlines, quaint harbours, picturesque countryside as well as buzzing beach and surf scenes.
The service to Cornwall Airport Newquay follows the recent announcement of two other new services operated by Blue Islands, Guernsey – London Southend and Guernsey – Liverpool which commence 20 May and 21 May respectively.
