Ryanair has announced its biggest summer schedule for Cornwall, including three new routes to London Stansted, Dublin and Malaga.

The airline plans to run more than 25 weekly flights from Newquay.

Cornwall Airport Newquay Managing Director Sam O’Dwyer said Malaga in particular will be ‘a very popular addition’.

“We are delighted by Ryanair’s decision to add three new routes,” he said.

“We are committed to offering more options and choice for those wanting to travel to and from Cornwall.”

In addition to Cornwall’s new routes, Ryanair also announced a Birmingham summer 23 schedule which will deliver 42 routes from the Midlands, including seven new summer routes to Billund, Girona, Pisa, Santander, Stockholm, Toulouse and Venice.

The airline also plans to increase frequencies on 10 routes, including Bergamo, Dublin, Madrid, Palma, Porto and Verona.

Wilson said he was pleased to announce ‘even more growth’ and called on the UK government to provide ‘more incentives for airlines to stimulate growth and recovery for the UK’ and regions such as Cornwall.

The budget airline posted a jump in October traffic, alongside an uptick in the load factor from 84% to 94%.

Passenger numbers rose 38% from October 2021 to 15.7m. On a rolling 12-month basis, traffic grew 178% to 157.4m.

The airline said it operated more than 88,560 flights in October, with ‘strong’ school half-term bookings.
