New flights from Newquay airport unveiled

Passengers from Cornwall will be able to fly direct from Newquay to two additional UK destinations this summer.

Newquay airport is launching weekly flights to Newcastle and Belfast from May.

The Exeter-based airline, Flybe, said the routes would operate on Saturdays from 5 May.

In December the Cornish airport announced weekly flights from Newquay to Norwich would also be starting in May.

Newquay airport said the flights would be a boost for Cornish tourism despite the current state of the economy.
