Falling Passenger Numbers: "Newquay Needs More Business Flights"

The man who used to run budget airline BMI Baby claims business flights are the key to Newquay Airport's survival.

It comes after bosses revealed passenger numbers are down by 25 thousand and Flybe announced that it will stop the Gatwick route from next year.

Dave Bryon said the route set up between Norwich and Aberdeen proves business customers are key: "You'd look at that on paper and go, nobody would ever fly that in a million years, and yet there's two airlines that fly four flights a day. The reason they fly is because you're connecting the petrochemical industry; they're all businesses. That's what Newquay has to do.

"Newquay Airport isn't just about getting people in there for weekend breaks. It's about using it as a hub for businesses to get out and reach other parts of the UK, other parts of Europe and other parts of the globe. I think the success of Newquay will not come through leisure tourism, it will come through business."
