Can I arrange an airport tour?

We are happy to host groups of school children and students from year 1 to university level in order to further educate the community on the economic benefits that Newquay Airport brings to Cornwall and the South West as well as our destination schedule. Due to the time and resources that are involved in arranging a tour of this nature, we are only able to conduct these during our quieter period from October to March and generally within normal office hours; Monday-Friday, 9-5pm. If you wish to visit outside of these times, we will try to accommodate the request but the areas covered within the tour / visit may be limited. Also due to volume of requests we receive from different organisations during the winter months, we are not able to guarantee we will be able to host every request received, but will do our upmost to accommodate as many groups as possible.

In order to assess requests you will need to fill out a form which covers information like numbers attending, what you would like to see and cover etc. If you would like a form please contact: . From this information we will get back in touch to cover the process in more detail.

As numerous departmental staff are involved with their time in aiding these visits, we do ask for a donation of £25 donation to one of our official charities; Cornwall Air Ambulance, ShelterBox or the Guide Dogs Association as a good will gesture rather than asking for payment.

Can pets travel?

Is certain cases, check with individuals airlines.  Skybus accept dogs.  Assistance dogs can travel, contact airline to book.
