A controversial tax on passengers flying from Newquay Airport is to be scrapped. Cornwall council has taken the decision to remove the £5 fee from the end of March next year. The hope is that it will help encourage new airlines to fly from the airport.
The council says since “public service obligation” was introduced there's been an increase in the numbers of people using the airport.
Adam Paynter, the council’s cabinet member for resources, said that this had resulted in higher revenues which had, in turn, led to a reduction in the current level of subsidy provided to the airport.
Ryanair are holding a press conference tomorrow regarding the changes.
