Air Southwest boosts Plymouth schedule

Air Southwest has announced new flights to Leeds from Plymouth City Airport.

The airline added extra flights to Leeds Bradford Airport on Sunday due to increased passenger demand.

Cheap flights between the two cities will now run daily, with daily flights to Manchester also announced.

Commenting on the schedule changes, deputy chief executive of Air Southwest Mike Coombes said: "We have found there is increasing demand for flights to Leeds Bradford from Plymouth, and these additional services will give added flexibility for business and leisure travellers alike.

"At a time when more people are looking to spend their holidays in the UK, improved air links to the South West are playing an important part in increasing the region’s attractiveness as a short break and holiday destination."

Air Southwest added its first flights from Plymouth to Newcastle in April as part of ongoing expansion plans.

The daily flights were designed to cater to those Britons looking to holiday both on the north-east and south-west coasts.
