Cornwall will only be an hour away from Liverpool.

Easyjet has announced announcing it is launching flights from Newquay airport to the city and Southend.

Europe's fourth largest airline's expected to run the routes from next summer. easyjet

Al Titterington, Managing Director at Newquay Airport said: "Brilliant to attract Easyjet and their stature and their standard in the UK aviation industry to Newquay. After the difficult couple of years that we've had with Air South West going out of business and the withdrawal of other airlines, it's really positive news for Cornwall and for the airport itself.

"The intention is to try and develop a partnership with Easyjet, developing other services. We know there's a big market for Mediterranean sun destinations from Cornwall, from the people who are flying from other airports in the south west, so we're hoping we're going to be able to develop those services in partnership."

It is hoped the arrival of Easyjet in Cornwall could lead to flights direct to the Med.

Trevor Spinx, UK Commercial Manager of Easyjet, said today's announcement is just the start: "When we look at a new destination, we put in alot of time and alot of effort. We look at the demand that both sides of the route can generate, and there's no reason to say that, we could join the dots over the rest of the UK, but then equally, we could be looking at Spain, we could be looking at France."
