Cornwall's air passengers take off.

Traveller numbers at Newquay airport jumped almost a quarter in July, compared to the same time last year.

It is as there is an overseas tourism boost.

Visit Britain has revealed the number of people visiting the south west from abroad is up by half.

Managing Director Al Titterington says more people are choosing to have 'staycations' too, and that Cornwall is the most popular choice.

He tells Pirate FM the city links help, he said: "What those airports give you is the connectivity onto other services that offer you global success for businesses, so we're actually connecting Cornwall to a more global audience, from places like Holland, from Germany, and from France.

"We've had double digit growth every month this year, we expect that trend to continue in terms of growth, we expect passenger numbers to continue to grow next year with some new opportunities from new routes that we're expecting, that will give that broader destination portfolio from the airport."
