easyJet to add nonstop flight between London and Cornwall this summer

easyJet has announced that it will fly nonstop between London Gatwick and Cornwall this summer.

Starting 8th June and operating through the summer season till 30th October, easyJet will fly 3-times-a-week between London’s secondary airport and Newquay airport. Let’s see the schedule of this new flight.

  • London Gatwick-Cornwall
  • Departure time: 17:10
  • Arrival time: 18:30
  • Flight time: 1 hour and 20 minutes
  • Flight number: U2821
  • Frequency: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays
  • Cornwall-London Gatwick
  • Departure time: 19:05
  • Arrival time: 20:15
  • Flight time: 1 hour and 10 minutes
  • Flight number: U2822
  • Frequency: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays

Ali Gayward, Country Manager, United Kingdom, easyJet, said:

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new service between Newquay and London Gatwick Airport, which we are confident will be popular with customers planning to take to the skies once it is safe to do so.

The British low-cost carrier will not face much competition on the route when the route first launches – it’ll be the only operator linking the Capital to Newquay. However, in late June, British Airways will launch its summer seasonal service between London Heathrow and Cornwall 5-times-a-week. easyJet does not currently operate any flights from Heathrow.

During the peak summer season when both carriers are operating their London to Newquay nonstop, the only day of the week that will not have a flight linking London to Cornwall is Wednesday.

Earlier this year, easyJet had announced plans to connect Cornwall with Manchester and Glasgow.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Cornwall’s Newquay Airport is gearing up for a busy summer season. In fact, it will be the busiest summer season for the airport. It is planning to have 10 different airlines fly to and from its runways this summer — including flights to both domestic and international destinations.
