Summer return for Lufthansa CRJs at Newquay Cornwall
Lufthansa will return to Newquay Cornwall Airport on 20 June with the return of its seasonal service to Düsseldorf in Germany, operated by Lufthansa Regional franchise partner Eurowings using a Bombardier CRJ200. The airline is offering a weekly Saturday service to the heart of the Rhein-Ruhr region.
Conversely Cornwall is popular with German tourists. “The south west region of the UK is well known to German tourists owing to the popularity of the Rosamunde Pilcher novels that have been made into a TV drama series here,” said Lufthansa Vice President Oliver Wagner.
“We are delighted to welcome Lufthansa back to Newquay Cornwall Airport. The Düsseldorf route saw extremely good passenger numbers last year, with almost 10% higher load factors than the Lufthansa average across its whole operation,” said Karen Medweth, Newquay Cornwall Airport’s head of commercial development.
