Steve Double MP responds to reported decision by Flybe to change London route from Heathrow to Gatwick

"If, as reported, the Newquay to London route is to be moved back to Gatwick, I share the disappointment of many, but do accept the reasons for this.

However, in the light of the events of this week the priority has to be securing the viability of the airline for the future whilst securing the best arrangements possible for Cornwall.

I will continue to work with all concerned to ensure the best outcomes for Cornwall Airport Newquay and the Cornish economy."
