Flybe Purple Plane

Cornwall Airport Newquay will soon offer passengers a new link to the Channel Islands.

Franchise partner of Flybe and regional operator, Blue Islands, will operate the service from June 3rd.

Planes will fly three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays until August 31st.

The flights to Jersey will take one hour, with passengers then having the option to connect through to Guernsey.

"It is fantastic news that from this summer the Airport will have more flight options for our passengers, adding to our already confirmed new services to Copenhagen, plus London’s Heathrow and Southend Airports"

"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".

Al Titterington, MD of Cornwall Airport Newquay

"The exciting addition of direct flights between Cornwall Airport Newquay and the Channel Islands means residents of both regions 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".

Rob Veron, CEO of Blue Islands
