Midlands link to surf

Regional carrier Whoosh will offer a service between from Birmingham International Airport and Newquay to cater for the summer holiday season.

The flights will begin on July 28th and will operate three times a week. They will depart on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and Whoosh hopes that the service will attract people looking to surf in Cornwall.

Flights will be operated by the Polish Airline, White Eagle Aviation, and will use an ATR42 aircraft.

"2005 was the last time anyone operated Birmingham - Newquay and they carried over 6,000 people in August alone! We are quite confident that this service will prove popular throughout the summer season," explained Aden Murcutt, chief executive of Whoosh.

Peter Vella, business development director at the airport added: "Whoosh is a new airline to start from Birmingham International Airport with its recent service to Dundee.

"Adding Newquay to its portfolio is an excellent choice enabling leisure travellers the chance to 'Whoosh' off to the sun, sea and sand of Cornwall."
