UK regional airline Air Southwest has announced a new, twice-daily service between London City Airport and Plymouth and Newquay airports will start on 20th April.
Peter Davies, Air Southwest MD, predicted the service would “revolutionise air travel between Devon and Cornwall and the capital”.
Davies said the company expect the service will be popular with business travellers and “timed the flights to fit with busy working lives.” In addition to the twice-daily weekday service, there will also be flights once a day at weekends.
Air Southwest is pitching the service as “better value than either rail or road travel” and says the fares, which start at £29 each way, include taxes, charges and baggage.
Richard Gooding OBE, Chief Executive of London City Airport, has welcomed the new service, commenting: “Plymouth was the first UK domestic destination ever served from London City in 1987, and it is great to see the service resumed.”
