Regional operator Blue Islands will start a new service from Newquay to Jersey and Guernsey this summer.
From June 3, flights will operate three times weekly until August 31.
The airline, a franchise partner of Flybe, will operate the route on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, allowing for passengers to enjoy either an extended weekend or full-week break in the Channel Islands.
“It is fantastic news that from this summer the airport will have more flight options for our passengers, adding to our already confirmed new services to Copenhagen, plus London’s Heathrow and Southend Airports,” said Al Titterington, managing director, Cornwall Airport Newquay.
“The Channel Islands are currently hard to reach for passengers in our catchment, with them having to either drive hours to the nearest airport with direct services or having to drive to the UK South Coast and take a ferry, with this being a journey which could take up to eight hours or more.
“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.”
