Winter scheduling and the demise of Air Southwest and its domestic routes, had left Newquay Airport with just a handful of flight destinations by the end of last year. Flybe have now reversed the trend by providing 7 routes in their summer scheduling, the first being a brand new route to Norwich International Airport.
Flights to East Anglia’s main airport will begin operating twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays between 5 May and 22 September. (see timetables) Norwich Timetables
This will benefit the population in both areas as each are favourite holiday destinations. Norwich although set in the heart of East Anglia is just 20 miles from the coast, so there’s easy access to Norfolk’s fantastic beaches and traditional seaside resorts like Southwold and Cromer.
Also on the door step is Great Yarmouth and the Norfolk Broads,where over two million people visit every year, exploring by land or water or a combination of both.
The City of Norwich its self is well worth a visit. Once having the largest medieval wall around the city, Norwich is still the most complete medieval city in Britain. Strolling through the winding medieval lanes around the impressive Castle and beautiful Romanesque Cathedral you will find a modern cultural city with beautiful heritage, vibrant nightlife, sophisticated shopping and plenty of restaurants.
From the Airport there is easy access to the city centre by Bus and Taxi which is just 4 mile s away.
