British Airways is to return to Newquay with a new summer seasonal service from London Heathrow.
BA will fly from London Heathrow Terminal 5 to Cornwall airport Newquay five times weekly from Thursday 2 July to Monday 7 September 2020. Flights do not operate on Tuesday and Wednesday.
This is a return to Newquay for BA after a very long break. BA used to fly to Newquay from London Gatwick until well over ten years ago.
The flight times vary by day. Whilst Newquay will welcome this route for the connectivity it provides to the BA network, as well as a relatively short operating period, the timings are not great for connections.
Flights depart Heathrow early in the morning on Thursday and Saturday and in the evening Monday, Friday and Sunday. Though, this obviously does work well for weekend breaks.
The London – Newquay route has been in the news recently with the decision by Flybe to transfer its four times daily service to Newquay from Heathrow to Gatwick from Sunday 29 March 2020.
Flybe does operate this route with a public subsidy. It is also facing public scrutiny over its financial health. This does put further competitive pressure on Flybe at a time when the Government is considering providing financial support.
