Someone at Newquay airport obviously knows something I don't - the latest business plan forecasts a leap in passenger numbers from the budgeted 177,930 in 2012/13 to 212,000 just two years later - a rise of 34,070. The plan says:
The focus is on expansion of the airport's domestic route network, the availability of its charter programme and the introduction of summer and winter sun destinations. Destinations which are being targeted include: Leeds Bradford, Birmingham, Newcastle, Dublin, Tenerife and Palma.
A great idea! Can't think why it hasn't been tried before.
