About NQY Airport

About NQY

Newquay Cornwall Airport opens up its region to wider opportunity for both business and leisure passengers. The airport is particularly important in a peripheral sub-region like Cornwall, where transport infrastructure and distances from key markets can be a real business constraint, affecting growth, productivity and competitiveness.

By offering year round, frequent flights to cities like Manchester and London, it means Cornwall can stay connected to major airport hubs making both European and long haul flight connections effortless.  Whether you’re after a weekend break or visiting friends and family, NQY’s airlines take the hassle out of the long and expensive journeys by road or rail.

NQY’s route network more than doubles in the summer opening up leisure routes for city breaks throughout the UK or for travellers to enjoy the impressive coastline, restaurants, golf courses and quirky towns Cornwall has to offer.  

For more information see Visit Cornwall's website.

NQY diversified its business slightly in 2011 meaning we’re not as dependant on passenger growth, given the current economic climate.  Therefore a new strategy was developed ‘to attract, secure and grow, business and investment on the aerodrome and adjacent land’.  More details can be found on the ‘Aerohub’ section of our website.

The airport is a vital ingredient in making Cornwall an attractive place to do business and attract inward investment with major companies identifying air links as key component of its decision making process for doing business.  The links it supports to wider UK, European and international business centres and markets are vital for the wider business community in Cornwall.

We’re looking to expand our charter holiday network here at NQY, which has been growing year on year.  Many thousand Cornish residents face long onward journeys to other airports for sun destinations, we are actively approaching tour operators to offer holidays from closer to home.
