The BBC reports that Newquay airport will be closed tomorrow, December 1, through December 19 at the earliest, while work is done on the air traffic control system.
Ryanair's none too happy. Air Southwest is relocating all Newquay flights to Plymouth and providing a Newquay-Plymouth shuttle, and tiny Skybus—not to be confused with the failed US low-cost carrier—is also providing a shuttle between Newquay and Land's End for flights to the Isles of Scilly.
The BBC story says that 7000 people will be affected by the temporary closure.
This is not a great day for Cornwall tourism.
