An airport is a critical part of any region's transport infrastructure, facilitating access to domestic and global markets.
With over 130 flights per week in its peak period carrying around 200,000 passengers a year, we will learn of the issues involved in operating a local airport of this size in a location like Cornwall where the local population is augmented by seasonal tourists.
Alan Titterington, Managing Director of Newquay Cornwall Airport will lead us through the history of the airport and bring us up to date with the latest route development initiative and some of the airport’s plans for the future.
This will include the development of the Aerohub and how that supports the aerospace sector and the positive impact it has both on the airport and the local economy in attracting high value business and employment.
