Air Southwest Exits Gatwick

Air Southwest scraps all flights between Plymouth and London

AIR Southwest is to scrap all flights between Plymouth and London, as well as Newquay and London, from the start of next month.

The company, which was sold by Plymouth's Sutton Harbour Holdings to Eastern Airways at the end of last year, has today announced changes to its operational schedule and will cease flying from Newquay and Plymouth airports to London Gatwick from February 1.

All passengers booked to fly from Newquay will be contacted and offered an alternative Flybe flight free of charge. Passengers booked from Plymouth will be contacted and refunded.

The rest of the Air Southwest schedule is unaffected. The airline will continue to operate regular scheduled services from Newquay to Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Cardiff, Bristol, Dublin, Cork, Newcastle and Glasgow; and from Plymouth to Leeds Bradford, Manchester, Bristol, Jersey, Guernsey, Dublin, Cork and Glasgow.

A spokesman said: "Air Southwest has also confirmed that it is having exploratory discussions with Flybe on potential areas for future positive cooperation going forward."

Makes commercial sense but a hard decision to make I guess ?
