Another boost has been announced for Cornwall's air link to London.

Flybe is launching new flights from Newquay to Stansted.

They will start in May 2015 and run across the summer, with departures on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Last month, Pirate FM told you about two and a half million pounds worth of government funding to secure the Gatwick route.

Around 100 thousand people a year use it, but the airline warned it was not viable on its own.

Al Titterington, Newquay Cornwall Airport's Managing Director said: "This is a further boost to the Airport and the tourism economy and follows on the back of the Gatwick announcement at the end of October.

"In previous times Stansted had been a key route for Cornwall bringing high value inbound tourism from its affluent catchment like Cambridge.

"We expect passenger demand to be strong and will be working with our partners to promote Cornwall."
