Flybe announces new Cornwall to Amsterdam route

Published by Sarah Yeoman at 4:45pm 17th January 2020.

Flybe's new summer schedule has been revealed with a new route from Cornwall to Amsterdam.

It comes as it is confirmed that Newquay's London link is switching back to Gatwick.

The struggling airline says Cornwall Airport Newquay's new schedule features an additional 1,149 flights.

From March, is says customers can benefit from the multiple opportunities for onward global connections available through two new year-round routes to London Gatwick and Amsterdam Schiphol. 

Flybe will also base a second aircraft at the airport. 

"I'm pleased that these very positive changes mark the beginning of a stronger, more resilient service for our customers travelling to and from Cornwall. 

"It further strengthens our commitment to providing regional connectivity to destinations across the UK, Europe and beyond. 

"As we complete our re-brand to Virgin Connect later this year, we look forward to delivering a really robust operation together with a great customer experience." 

Flybe's Interim Chief Commercial Officer, Oli Byers

The two new routes offer four flights a day to London Gatwick, and six flights a week to Amsterdam.

There is also extra frequency to Flybe's Manchester hub with an extra five flights a week, bringing the weekly total to a choice of 18 flights in peak summer.

Seats for the new services will be available for booking online at www.flybe.com from Tuesday 21st January, 2020, effective for travel between 29th March and 24th October 2020.

The new route to London Gatwick, operated under a Public Service Obligation, will replace one-for-one the current four times a day Heathrow flights. 

The new Amsterdam service has been timed to connect conveniently with many of the international airlines offering onward travel to the rest of the world from one of Europe's busiest hub airports.
