Newquay airport promises Pirate FM there will be no more pain for passengers.

It is after we told you free parking has been scrapped, with all drivers now having to pay at least a pound.

That is even if they are just dropping someone off.

But Managing Director Al Titterington insists there are no other charges being considered.

He said: "Nothing which affects the passengers. The two charges obviously which affect the passengers directly are the car parking charge and the airport development fee. There are no other money making schemes, scams, however people want to phrase it, to exploit it out of the passenger.

Mr Titterington admitted the council-owned base has to find ways of saving taxpayers money.

He added: "Around the airport, trying to develop the aerospace sector, creating jobs which will then create income for the airport through property rents, landing fees, fuel sales, etc etc. Whilst giving the benefit to the Cornish economy of new jobs and new employment within the airport facility."
