Eurowings, a budget airline and part of Lufthansa, is set to add a Newquay-Stuttgart route to its portfolio with a once weekly flight every Saturday as of March 31, 2018.
The new weekly route will run for summer 2018. The flight will depart from Stuttgart at 08:25 and will arrive at Newquay at 10:25. The flight from Newquay departs at 10:55 and will reach Stuttgart at 12:50.
The new flight comes as Eurowings continues to increase connectivity between Cornwall and Germany. In addition, the airline has extended the season of its Newquay to Dusseldorf route, which is also operating each Saturday, to October 20. In total Eurowings will operate two routes from Newquay Airport next summer.
Markus Leopold, Regional Manager UK at Eurowings, said: ‘We are delighted to add Stuttgart, our second route here to our Newquay summer schedule and also expand the seasonality of our existing route to Dusseldorf. There is a growing demand from Newquay to Germany and vice versa and we are looking forward to see even more Eurowings in Cornwall in the future.’
Al Titterington, Managing Director at Cornwall Airport Newquay added, ‘We’re pleased to be welcoming an expanded route network with Eurowings for 2018. The addition of Stuttgart as well as the expanded season on their popular Dusseldorf route illustrates the strong demand for easy access to Cornwall from the German market and is a result of the positive relationship we have built with Eurowings. We’re delighted that our network of direct connections to Germany is expanding, offering more choice for passengers wishing to travel between Cornwall and Germany.’
The new Eurowings flights between Newquay and Stuttgart can be booked at www.eurowings.com or via the Eurowings app. Holidaymakers are also offered the option to book budget package holidays on the website through the Eurowings Holidays tour operator. These combine the new flight options with hotel offers, Cornwall Airport said in its release.
Cornwall Airport Newquay has registered a significant increase in its passenger traffic this summer. The airport handled a record 61,000 passengers during August, an increase of 30 percent. The airport growth this summer is more than triple the EU average of eight percent and will reach its 600,000 to 650,000 annual capacity limits, the airport noted.
