Newquay Cornwall Airport and its FBO Midwest Executive Aviation (Booth No. 391) are reporting a continued increase in business aviation at the airport, despite current European economic conditions. Midwest Executive reports a 10-percent increase in handled traffic in the first quarter of 2009, despite indications that aviation movements in Europe as a whole are down 25 percent compared with the same period in 2008.
Furthermore, the FBO is expanding its facilities in 2009. A new building for passengers and crew is scheduled to open in October.
Newquay Cornwall Airport is the gateway to much of the southwest of England. The runway can accommodate jets as
large as the Boeing BBJ and the Airbus ACJ family.
