Commencing from next summer there is to be a new airline service from Newquay Airport to Dusseldorf in Germany. I've expressed opposition before to the ever increasing number of flights but in this case we are talking about Newquay not Heathrow and it's a fact that Newquay Airport is currently underused.
Apparently part of the demand for this service from those in Germany derives from the love affair of those people for the TV dramatisation of the works of Rosamunde Pilcher, many of whose stories are set in Cornwall. The following for novels set in England is absolutely amazing, who would have thought the writing of novels would influence the decision to open a new route.
These visitors will be quite high spending I guess so overall this is a good boost for the Cornish economy. Will other foreign airlines follow the example of Lufthansa in connecting with Newquay?
