Cornwall Airport Newquay has reported a sharp upturn in passenger traffic.
In June 2022, the airport in Cornwall processed 26,382 passengers, whilst in June 2023, this number surged to 47,396 – representing an 80% increase. In July 2023 around 57,000 passengers passed through the airport, bringing the regional terminal back to pre-pandemic levels.
The airport claims to be the ‘fastest growing regional airport’ in the UK. Since 2022, Cornwall Airport Newquay has introduced seven new routes, while a deal with AirLingus has meant that passengers flying to America, changing at Dublin, can complete immigration checks on this side of the Atlantic.
Sam O’Dwyer, Managing Director of Cornwall Airport Newquay said: “The achievements we have witnessed are a testament to the dedication and hard work of our entire team. Cornwall Airport Newquay has evolved into a key player in the aviation landscape, providing a range of exciting travel opportunities for both leisure and business travellers.”
