West Country gets ever closer…

Put all those fears of lengthy hold ups on the motorway behind you, the West Country has just got that bit closer to London! Air Southwest has just announced a new, twice daily service from London City Airport, in the heart of the capital, to both Plymouth and Newquay airports. The flights will operate twice daily, Monday to Friday, with one flight on a Sunday. The new flights complement Air Southwest's four times daily London Gatwick service, which operates seven days a week from Plymouth and Newquay.

Flying time to Plymouth from London City will be just over an hour, shaving hours off the same journey by rail or road. And fares have been set to make the new service better value than either rail or road travel - seats start from £29 each way including taxes, charges and baggage.

This is great news for all our visitors from the south east of England with lots of Helpful Holiday cottages within easy reach of either airport. It makes the prospect of a holiday or short break to the West Country even more attractive…you can get down here refreshed, relaxed and ready to take in all the delights of the glorious West Country
