We spoke to Al Titterington - Managing Director of Newquay Cornwall Airport.
A new Easyjet service has begun between Newquay and London Southend Airport. A new route to Liverpool will also start next month.
However Exeter-based airline Flybe has said it plans to stop services from Newquay to Gatwick next March after selling the landing slots in London.
The first ever EasyJet flight into Newquay Airport is due at 0820 this morning.
It's coming from London Southend and will be flown in by Liskeard-born pilot Richard Andrews. EasyJet is hoping 20,000 people will use the service this summer.
Flight prices start at around £23 each way.
