UK low-cost carrier Air Southwest yesterday (28 April) doubled the number of destinations it serves from Plymouth in Devon while adding routes at Newquay in Cornwall too.
From Plymouth City Airport it will fly to Glasgow and Newcastle (seven days a week), Cork (four times weekly) and Dublin (thrice weekly). All will operate year-round, and from December it will serve Chambery in France between 20 December and 28 March 2009.
It has also begun serving Glasgow and Newcastle (with equal frequency) from Newquay Cornwall Airport, re-introduced its Cork service there (six times weekly) and will add Chambery for the winter season.
The region”s business community has welcomed the routes.
Devon and Cornwall Business Council chairman Tim Jones said: ”Good air services are important for the continuing prosperity of the region and the value to the economy, with businesses remaining competitive through connectivity to other marketplaces.
”The South West relies on excellent communication networks because of its geography and I am particularly pleased to see Air Southwest growing its portfolio of destinations which will help to drive inbound tourism and business to the two counties.”
South West Tourism CEO Malcolm Bell added: ”These new flights from Newcastle and Glasgow will open up the South West to people from the North East and Scotland who might have previously travelled to other parts of the UK to conduct business or take a holiday.”
Air Southwest”s CEO said he was confident these additional year-round services will be popular with business travellers and tourists.
