Direct flights between Jersey and Cornwall
ISLANDERS will be able to fly direct to Newquay from 3 June when Blue Islands are due to launch a three-times weekly seasonal service.
The airline will run the flights every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday until 31 August with one-way fares starting from £49.99.
Rob Veron, chief executive of Blue Islands, said: ‘Following the recent introduction of Guernsey–London Southend and Guernsey–Liverpool services, the exciting addition of Cornwall Airport Newquay to the Blue Islands route network provides the most convenient access to this stunning part of the UK direct from the Channel Islands.
‘Cornwall and the Channel Islands are both stunning regions with many similarities, and the addition of direct flights means residents can now appreciate discovering the respective unique cultures and subtle nuances that exist beyond the stunning coastlines, quaint harbours, picturesque countryside as well as buzzing beach and surf scenes.’
Meanwhile, Al Titterington, managing director of Cornwall Airport Newquay, said that the new route would encourage more residents from the south coast of the UK to visit the Islands.
He said: ‘By offering this seamless one-hour flight to Jersey and onwards to Guernsey, we now have a much more sustainable and customer-friendly option for people wanting to reach this part of the world, and for those in the Channel Islands wanting to visit our great county.’
