Thrifty Car Hire Newquay Airport

Newquay Cornwall International Airport is a commercial airport located a few miles north east of Newquay in England, UK. It is based on RAF St. Mawgan, utilising the RAF's runway, and MOD provided fire service. It is the main airport serving Cornwall, a very popular tourist area of England. The airport is located close to attractions such as The Eden Project, National Maritime Museum and the Tate St Ives. So if you are just going on your holiday or just getting back, rest assured that you have arrived in a wonderful location, and you can have a great car hire from Thrifty Car Rental, which won't let you down.

As the airport is situated close to many surfing beaches, Newquay has been called the surf capital of Europe; many of the championship contenders fly through Newquay airport, as it is one of the only commercial links into Cornwall. So with a car hire from Thrifty Car Rental you could enjoy a wonderful surfing holiday.

The airport is constantly growing, including a new extension that has increased the terminal size by about 20%. This means the airport can handle as many as 450,000 passengers per year. However, the airport is continuing to grow, due to popularity and increased sales, the airport is known to be one of the fastest growing regional airports in the UK and ome to car hire service from Thrifty Car Rental.

In 2006 the airport introduced a £5 per passenger airport development fee, payable by all departing passengers via an ATM type machine prior to passing security.
This resulted in Monarch dropping its only route from the airport and Ryanair reducing the amount of flights from 2 to 1 per day. However, the flying operations at the RAF Base on the opposite side of the runway will cease in the spring of 2008. The Fire and Rescue Service at St Mawgan is run by the MOD but it is not RAF.
