As Cornwall continues to bathe in glorious sunshine, Cornwall Airport Newquay is reporting a strong start to the summer with June passenger numbers up 5% on last year with almost 54,000 people using the Airport during the month.
The growth has come primarily from the domestic market with routes from London in particular as well as Scotland, Northern Ireland and the North of England seeing the biggest increases. Bosses at the Airport believe that the recent good weather has given a boost to tourism, encouraging more people to book a last minute break to Cornwall to take advantage of it.
Al Titterington, Managing Director at Cornwall Airport Newquay, commented: “The numbers for June are really impressive with the growth coming from a number of our well established routes, particularly in the domestic market. The great weather Cornwall has been enjoying recently certainly seems to have given summer bookings a boost and we’re geared up for another busy summer welcoming more visitors to our beautiful county.”
