Newquay airport reports 63% jump in passengers

This summer’s boom in domestic tourism has been reflected in a 63% jump in passengers using Cornwall airport Newquay.

The rise to more than 50,000 users over the same time last year made July the busiest month since 2009, making the airport the fastest growing in the UK.

Managing director Al Titterington said: “The airport is such a vital lifeline for Cornwall and its economy so it’s great to see that demand remains high following the Brexit vote and that more and more people are benefitting from the increased routes and capacity to and from Cornwall airport Newquay this year.”

Cornwall Council’s cabinet member for resources, Adam Paynter, said: “This is more good news for Cornwall airport Newquay which is a key part of our transport infrastructure.

“I am delighted to see the continuing increase in passenger numbers which demonstrates how well the connections to more destinations are working.“
