Cornwall's flights to Heathrow are confirmed safe

Cornwall's flights to Heathrow are confirmed safe

Published by Sarah Yeoman at 5:19pm 19th December 2019. (Updated at 8:24am 20th December 2019)

It has been confirmed that Cornwall's flights to Heathrow are safe.

There was concern that the Newquay to Heathrow route might be scrapped as customers could not book flights beyond the end of March.

Last month bosses said that they were working to finalise the summer 2020 schedule.

Now Cornwall Airport Newquay has announced that flights beyond March will be on sale from early January.

There will be four daily flights, seven days a week until October 2022.

"To reassure passengers, we can confirm that tickets on the London PSO service beyond 28th March 2020 are expected to be on sale from the week commencing 6th January 2020.
 
"Although passengers can currently only book travel on the service between Newquay and Heathrow until the end of March, the PSO service to London is contracted to operate 4 daily flights, 7 days per week until October 2022 and that commitment remains unchanged. 
 
"We are sorry for the inconvenience this delay to tickets being on sale is causing to passengers using the service but we are working with Flybe to optimise the route and ensure that Cornwall has the best available connectivity to London and beyond."
