Cornwall's air link to London is another step closer to safety.

Airlines are being asked if they would like to run it, after the government agreed to help cover the cost.

The subsidy will last four years.

It is after Flybe and Easyjet said it was too expensive without it.

Adam Paynter from the council says it will boost the economy and the airport: "Generally people are feeling more optimistic; this could be a great stepping stone for Newquay to expand its air links into other parts of the UK and the EU.

"Four years gives us a great period of time that we can build the link and build the airport, it certainly gives a lot of security because currently around half of the passengers going through Newquay are travelling on up to London, so it's a very important link for us."
