Newquay Airport passengers rise as storms hit rail use

Related Stories

Newquay Airport saw its passenger numbers boosted by the storms of early 2014 which cut Cornwall off to rail users for weeks.

In the first five months of 2014, there were 79,000 passengers - a 28% rise compared with the same period in 2013.

The railway line at Dawlish in Devon was out of action from February to April after storms wrecked the track.

Newquay Airport received a government grant to give a £5 reduction per person per flight during the disruption.
