The go ahead has finally been given for 9 million pounds worth of improvements to the airports at Land's End and the Isles of Scilly.
Work to hard surface the runway at Land's End and upgrade navigation aids at St.Mary's had been delayed until it was approved by the EU.
The European Commission says the improvements will increase the accessibility to the Cornwall region, a key part of Europe’s transport policy. It's hoped it will also help the Scillies in its bid to tackle a worrying decline in tourism.
