easyJet has launched flights from Glasgow to Newquay in Cornwall for the first time over the weekend.
The service will provide customers in Scotland with even more domestic connections this summer to reunite them with friends and family or take a long-awaited break.
Located on Cornwall’s Atlantic Coast, Newquay has long been one of the UK’s most popular seaside destinations thanks to its sandy beaches, surf-worthy waves and local attractions.
Flights to Newquay are now operating twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays throughout the peak summer season, providing customers in Scotland with direct flights to the Cornish coast in around 90 minutes.
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager said: “We are delighted to be celebrating the launch of our new service from Glasgow to Newquay for the first time, further strengthening our domestic UK network and providing more opportunity for our customers in Scotland to book a trip this summer.
“Our Protection Promise means that customers can book with confidence knowing that if they are unable to travel or if their plans change, so can their flights, and we are looking forward to reuniting friends and family or take customers on long-awaited holiday.
“We are proud to be the largest airline in Scotland and remain committed to offering customers great value fares and more choice when they fly with us.”
All customers booking flights with easyJet benefit from some of the most flexible policies under its ‘Protection Promise’ which means that customers can book now for later this year with the confidence that if their plans change, so can their booking.
Ronald Leitch, Operations Director at Glasgow Airport, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to see this new route take to the skies today.
“easyJet’s decision earlier this year to introduce what is a brand new destination for the airline has proved extremely popular with Scottish travellers looking to enjoy a staycation in one of England’s most popular coastal areas.”
