EasyJet expands with second Newquay route

A second route to Cornwall has been unveiled by easyJet as part of expansion from Liverpool John Lennon airport next summer.

The airline is to serve Newquay from July 4 with three flights a week and Nantes in France with a twice a week service.

Newquay will be the airline’s fourth domestic route from Liverpool, alongside Belfast, the Isle of Man and Jersey. Nantes becomes the fifth French destination.

The development follows the announcement of three flights a week from Southend to Newquay from June 20.

EasyJet’s commercial manager Ali Gayward said: “We are thrilled to be announcing new routes for Liverpool airport and have carefully selected destinations to complement the wide range of cities we already serve from the airport.

“The news demonstrates easyJet’s continued commitment to Liverpool as one our largest airport bases in the UK and a key gateway to the north of England.

“Our new services to Nantes and Newquay should prove popular with UK holidaymakers and business travellers looking for an easy and affordable way to reach western France or Cornwall.”

Craig Richmond, chief executive of Liverpool airport parent Peel Airports, said: “Holidaymakers will soon be able to choose to fly to the Cornish coast in England or to the west coast of France from Liverpool and we look forward to continuing to work closely with easyJet to explore further opportunities over the coming weeks too.”
