Ryanair back at Newquay Cornwall Airport
Newquay Cornwall Airport has announced the return of Ryanair and its daily flights between the airport and London Stansted from 2 March. The airline put a halt to services in December 2008 when the airport closed for a brief period as its operation was handed over from the oyal Air Force to Cornwall County Council.
Andrew Mitchell, Cornwall County Council’s economic portfolio holder commented, “This demonstrates the commitment between Cornwall County Council and Ryanair to provide travellers with a fast connection to London and the East Anglian region. It also supports our belief that the future of the airport is bright and together with Ryanair and our other airlines, we will continue to play an important role in the development of airline passenger services to and from Cornwall.”
Karen Medweth, Newquay Cornwall Airport’s head of commercial development added, “We are very pleased to see Ryanair’s return to Newquay Cornwall Airport. This route is particularly popular with leisure travellers who are looking to make the most of their time exploring Cornwall and the South West region and we hope to see more visitors this year as holiday makers overlook the Euro-zone in favour of holidaying closer to home.”
