Air Southwest (UK) to end all operations on September 30

Air Southwest (Plymouth) announced on July 14 it has taken the decision to cease all its Plymouth services from September 14, 2011. The Newquay flights were also reviewed at length, but the carrier decided the services were not viable on their own without the association with Plymouth. As a consequence, Newquay routes to Glasgow, Guernsey, Jersey and Manchester will also end on the same date.

Newquay services to Aberdeen, Bristol, Cork, Dublin and Leeds/Bradford will end on September 30, which will be the last day of Air Southwest branded flights.
