Coventry is the latest airport open to offers

COVENTRY AIRPORT has been put up for sale by its joint owners, the Irish investment company Howard Holdings Plc, and AFCO Holdings Ltd, a company specifically created with airport development in mind.  It is currently the home of West Atlantic, the cargo airline (formerly Atlantic Airlines), Air Atlantique Classic Flight, various executive and general aviation activities and The Midlands Aviation Museum.  From March 2004 until November 2008 it hosted scheduled low cost operations to a number of popular continental destinations.  A record of just under 600,000 passengers passed through the airport in 2007 but with the loss of a planning application to develop the terminal and the subsequent departure of its main base carrier ThomsonFly, clearly the aspirations of the owners have not been met.  Coventry Airport has a single runway 05/23 2000m (6576ft). www.coventryairport.co.uk
