Thanks to an exciting new codeshare agreement between Flybe and Emirates it is now possible to fly from Cornwall to Emirates global network, which spans over 145 destinations across six continents in 84 countries, on a single ticket.
Wherever they choose to go, passengers can expect seamless connections with full ‘check through’ protection. This means international passengers will be able to check their bags at Newquay and not have to collect them until their final destination, be that Dubai, Singapore or Sydney.
Al Titterington, Managing Director, Newquay Cornwall Airport, said: “This new codeshare agreement between Flybe and Emirates will provide passengers in Cornwall with the freedom to travel anywhere on the Emirates global network at the click of a button and is another exciting development in the continued growth of Newquay Cornwall Airport."
Laurie Berryman, Emirates VP, UK, said: "Our new codeshare agreement with Flybe will provide passengers in Newquay with increased choice, flexibility and ease of connection to Dubai and on bound to destinations on Emirates’ global network.
“Offering a smoother, more convenient travel experience, it will also make travel into Newquay more accessible for international tourists and open up the delights of the town and wider region to more people around the world.”
Flybe’s current schedule from NQY will allow passengers to connect to five Emirates services departing daily from airports across the UK including Birmingham, Manchester and London Gatwick.
