Newquay Cornwall Airport has announced free car parking for up to 60 minutes.
The initiative came into effect yesterday (May 18) and has been introduced at both of its car parks.
It is a move that will be welcomed by many. In March 2013, the airport introduced a minimum £1 charge which was described by the local MP as “absolutely bonkers”.
He feared that the road outside the airport would become dangerous, with people leaping out to avoid the fee.
The airport relented later in the year, but only with free parking for the first ten minutes. Free parking for an hour, however, will allow easy access for those picking up and dropping off passengers.
