Study reveals drop in passengers using Newquay Airport

There has been a continuing drop in the number of people flying to and from Cornwall, according to Newquay Airport.

A study by the airport has shown a 19% fall in passengers over the past two years. However, the airport said the decline rate does appear to be slowing.

It added that the drop is in line with other regional airports, which have all been affected by the economy and the volcanic ash disruptions in the spring.

About 329,000 people are expected to use the airport this financial year.
