Newquay scraps airport tax

Ryanair is returning to Newquay Airport next spring with routes to Spain and Germany just three days after Newquay Council’s unpopular £5 passenger tax is due to be abolished.

The airline pulled out of Newquay four years ago in protest at the council’s controversial Airport Development Fee.

On its return, Ryanair will operate twice-weekly flights to Alicante and Frankfurt, starting from 3 April.

Al Titterington, Managing Director of Newquay Airport, said: “The introduction of these new services to Alicante and Frankfurt-Hahn is great news for the airport. 

“Our customers have repeatedly given us feedback that services to the Mediterranean are in high demand and I’m so pleased to have Ryanair announcing the route to Alicante.

“Equally important is the service from Germany. Cornwall is incredibly popular with German travellers and this direct access will give the region a significant boost.”   www.ryanair.com     www.newquaycornwallairport.com
