    Newquay - Cornwall - Airport Development Fee 23rd Jun 08 at 4:48 PM
    I'm flying from Newquay in August. I've booked my flight and then i find out about the ADF. Basically everyone who flies through Newquay has to pay £5 on top of their ticket price.

    Its feels like the booking fee rubbish we have to put up with when booking concert tickets etc. I know its not a lot of money - but they *are* making money from the airlines (and this in not linked to the current crunch fuel stuff)

    it just annoys me thats all...


    Airport Development Fee

    On Saturday 29 October 2005 Newquay Cornwall Airport introduced a £5 Airport Development Fee for all departing passengers.

    Newquay Cornwall Airport is one of the fastest growing regional airports in the UK. It boasts regular low cost flights to some of the country's major international airports and overseas destinations. To meet the increasing demand for flights to and from the region, Newquay Cornwall Airport must develop services, facilities and infrastructure to meet its customer's needs. To meet these rising costs and to secure the future of the airport it has been necessary to introduce an airport development fee.
