Aer Lingus has launched a route from Cornwall Airport Newquay to Dublin, with onward connections to the US and Canada.
The route’s inaugural flight departed from Newquay on Friday, and will be followed by four flights per week, year-round, operated by Emerald Airlines as Aer Lingus Regional.
Aer Lingus said the route will connect Newquay to its North American destinations including New York, Boston, Chicago, Washington DC, Toronto and Vancouver.
Sam O’Dwyer, managing director at Cornwall Airport Newquay, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Emerald Airlines as our first new airline to Newquay this year and to be operating this very popular route between Ireland and Cornwall.
“It’s a welcome sight to see Aer Lingus Regional here at Newquay and we look forward to working with Emerald Airlines to develop the partnership further in the coming years.
“This hugely popular route between Dublin and Newquay will undoubtedly be welcomed on both sides of the Celtic Sea.”
Ciarán Smith, head of commercial at Emerald Airlines, said: “We are very pleased to be operating this route between Cornwall and Dublin, which we have no doubt will be a popular one.
“For those passengers planning holidays over to the US or Canada from Cornwall, it has never been easier thanks to the seamless connection provided by Aer Lingus when passengers land into Dublin.
“We look forward to working both with the team at Cornwall Airport Newquay and our partners in Aer Lingus to ensure the success of this route.”
