A&P Falmouth is delighted that Flybe has doubled the London/Newquay service to 6 flights a day, giving shipyard customers tremendous flexibility to travel to and from the yard.
Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has added an extra 4,500 seats a week, with effect from Wednesday February 12th.
Flybe has moved quickly to ensure that Cornwall and the South West has a convenient and affordable lifeline transport link to the UK capital following the severing of the train link between the two regions at Dawlish in Devon.
Working together with the Department of Transport, Newquay Cornwall and London Gatwick Airports, Flybe has worked fast to quickly find a solution to the travel situation now facing the South West. It has adjusted its flying programme to free up one of its 118-seat Embraer 195 aircraft and re-scheduled crews to operate it.
Flights now leave London Gatwick at 0905, 0940, 1525, 1635, 1835 and 2010, and depart from Newquay at 0715, 0805, 1400, 1455, 1705 and 1815.
