Cornish Pasties Welcome New Passengers To Newquay Airport
Passengers arriving on Ryanair’s new flight from Frankfurt on Sunday were welcomed to Newquay Airport with a Cornish pasty!
It’s the first time the Irish-based airline has used the airport since January 2011, when they pulled out, blaming the controversial airport development fee, which required every passenger to pay an extra £5 to use the airport.
The airport announced last October that the unpopular tax was being scrapped.
Ryanair has launched two new services from the airport – from Alicante and Frankfurt Hahn.
Both routes will operate twice weekly, with Alicante on Wednesdays and Sundays and Frankfurt Hahn operating on Thursdays and Sundays.
Scilly is popular with visitors from Germany and the new Frankfurt service could provide a quicker and more convenient way to get to the islands.
Airport Managing Director, Al Titterington, said the new Alicante service will offer a direct summer sun route for the local market, without the need to travel out of the county.
