Cornwall Airport Newquay says that the vital air link to Manchester, reinstated from October this year, with a second airline also operating the route from March 2021, will fly as expected on 23rd October, despite the north-west going in to tier 3 lockdown.
Eastern Airways will begin operating the service from 23rd October, flying four times per week throughout the winter increasing to a daily service next summer. Scottish Airline Loganair, which had recently announced plans to provide four other vital links from the airport, including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle and Aberdeen, will be commencing daily services from next March.
The Manchester route, which was previously operated by Flybe, is one of the Airport’s most important connections, and has been one of the key objectives of the Airport’s recovery strategy since the collapse of Flybe earlier this year.
Travel from tier 3 essential purposes. However, this is guidance not law.
