Newquay Cornwall Airport flights to cease temporarily
Cornwall County Council was informed on 26 November 2008 that the Royal Air Force is unable to continue to operate the airfield at St Mawgan beyond the original transition date of 1 December. Given that the airport will not be licensed until 19 December, it will effectively be closed for commercial flights with flights resuming on 20 December 2008. However, the terminal building will remain open and in operation for check-in.
Flights up to and including 30 November will operate as normal. The airport says it will advise passengers as soon as possible of alternative arrangements. The airport will be setting up a hotline for passengers to ring for information regarding their flights.
“We are very sorry for the inconvenience this temporary cancellation of flights from the airport will cause to those who have booked flights during this period,” said Andrew Mitchell, Economic Portfolio Holder for Cornwall County Council. “We are clearly very disappointed that the RAF has not been able to continue to operate the airfield beyond 1 December. We would like to place on record our sincere appreciation for the cooperation we have received from the RAF throughout this project.”
