Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Stobart Air, has announced the return of its Cork air link to sunny Cornwall on England’s southwestern coast, with an extended service this year.
The Cork—Cornwall Newquay link will operate twice weekly, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, from 9 May to 6 October this year, with an additional 20 percent capacity and fortnight of service compared to 2017.
Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Stobart Air, reached a milestone in June 2017 when its two-millionth passenger travelled through Cork Airport.
The airline aims to fly over 340,000 passengers on Aer Lingus Regional routes through Cork Airport this year.
Across nine routes in the UK and France, Aer Lingus Regional will offer over 275,000 seats and 3,800 flights during summer 2018 from Cork Airport.
Following the successful launch to Newquay in Cornwall this year, Aer Lingus Regional has extended this service for a longer season in 2018.
Cornwall Airport Newquay, just on the outskirts of the town, is also close to Truro, Cornwall’s only city, and the famous Penzance and St Ives. The neighbouring county of Devon, which includes Plymouth and Exeter, is only a short distance away by car and train.
Cornwall is England’s southernmost county. Steeped in history, Cornwall has its own language and unique culture. Some legends have it that King Arthur was born in and later ruled Cornwall.
Home to the spectacular botanical gardens of the Eden Project, the cliffs and beaches of Land’s End, and some of the UK’s greatest foods, drinks and restaurants, Cornwall truly has something for every visitor.
Commenting on the route, Graeme Buchanan, Managing Director at Stobart Air, said: “To meet strong demand, Stobart Air is thrilled to offer Cork passengers an extended summer service to the beautiful English county of Cornwall.
“Cornwall is a unique UK destination. For those seeking a change to city breaks in Edinburgh or Manchester, a flight from Cork to Newquay offers a fantastic mix of bustling country towns, gorgeous coastal scenery, and attractions for foodies, thrill-seekers and culture buffs alike.”
