Flybe is to launch a new route from London Heathrow to Newquay from Sunday 30 October 2022.
The airline will fly between Heathrow and Newquay twice daily on weekdays and daily on weekends.
The previous incarnation of Flybe flew between Heathrow and Newquay as a Public Service Obligation (“PSO”) route with funding from Central Government and Cornwall Council.
After its collapse Eastern Airways secured the PSO route – it now serves Newquay up to three times daily from Gatwick.
BA also serves Newquay on a summer seasonal basis from Heathrow, but there are currently no plans for this to return in 2023.
Flybe Suspends Heathrow – Leeds Bradford
Flybe’s new route to Newquay will replace its current service between Heathrow and Leeds Bradford.
Flybe is the third airline, after bmi British Midland and BA, to withdraw from Heathrow – Leeds Bradford in recent times.
The prospects of success for Flybe always seemed limited without codeshare partners. The same could be said for its route to Newquay, not least because it is launching in the winter season.
Flybe routes from Heathrow to Amsterdam and Belfast City will continue with increased frequency throughout the winter season.
Full details of the airline’s winter route network from London and other UK regional airports are available from Flybe.
