A new service flew in to Newquay today that managers hope signals a bright future for the airport. The Easyjet flight from London Southend is one of two new routes the airline is introducing to Cornwall this summer.
The airport says it's confident other new destinations will follow.
Today a new Easyjet service touched down at Newquay from London Southend Airport. A new route to Liverpool will also start next month. Here's a video of the arrival, which the airport hopes is the start of a long-lasting relationship with the airline.
There is uncertainty over Cornwall's airlink to London after Flybe announced the sale of its Gatwick airport slots. The Exeter-based airline has sold its landing times to Easyjet.
Flybe's service will come to an end in 2014. Easyjet says it can't confirm whether it will continue the route until later this year. Managing Director of Flybe Europe, Mike Rutter, says high charges at Gatwick forced the sale:
Icons from Britain's aviation history go on display in Newquay today. Classic planes from the 1950s and 60s - some of them saved from the scrapyard - are starting a new life at a museum at the airport.
As well as seeing the planes on the ground, visitors will also get the chance to go up in some of them.
