Even if Biden helicopters in from somewhere else there'll be vast herds of security, diplomats, media swilling about C Cornwall for about a month - all ned protecting - just think of the overtime bill for the police!! they probably can't believe their luck.

I might be wrong but there isn't much time to spend this on improvements to the hard infrastructure (eg, runways, taxiways etc), if that were needed surely it would have been thought about before now.

More likely this will cover the costs of bringing in more ground equipment, temporary buildings for crew use, facilities for security provision etc?

To update the above posted yesteday, there's a bit more info within the following ITV News

You would think that 2.5 months is not a lot of time to complete the types of work mentioned, but we don't know how significant they need to be in reality.

Was Zurich operated to NQY before high summer at some point in past, or is the Edelweiss planned summer service brand new?

Good news! Zürich - Newquay announced in the middle of a pandemic??
Edelweiss A320 ops Sundays July - September.
By my reckoning that’s 10 airlines serving Newquay this summer. Not a bad recovery from the flybe collapse.

Looks like we all need to avoid the area like the plague during the G7 summit - 5,500 extra police involved, rail line shut, serious road disruption for four days plus, nightmare

Will make a nice change for the Devon & Cornwall Constabulary catching the kids sniffing stuff behind the sheds in Camborne

EIR have added BHD 3pw from 28/6
That’s the 2019 network almost complete.

Good to see scheduled ops at NQY starting to ramp up. London is the glaring gap at the moment, but EZY due to start in a week or so, then BA later in the month.

Noticed an Eastern ATR72 arriving (from SOU) last night, looks like it's operating to JER today - one-off/charter as no mention on the Airport schedules?

The Eastern ATR would have been taking the Cornish Pirates rugby squad to play Jersey Reds.

I never realised NQY has a 2700m runway. That's longer than most in the UK!
