Loganair managing director Jonathan Hinkles said: “We’re excited by these new routes which we’ve been working for some time to develop at just the right level. With more and more people holidaying in the UK, avoiding expensive Euro exchange rates or enjoying a staycation with friends and family we’re confident that the routes will do well.
“The growing economic links between the north-east of Scotland and Cornwall mean we’re confident that business demand will sustain the year-round service.”
