All passengers travelling through Newquay Cornwall Airport should be advised that as directed by the Department for Transport (DfT), there is a requirement for Airport Security staff to conduct testing on a certain percentage of liquid items contained within departing passengers' hand baggage. This testing is mandatory, therefore it would be appreciated if passengers could provide their full co-operation should their items be selected. The Airport Management apologises for any inconvenience this regulatory directive may cause and wishes you a safe flight.
All passengers starting their journey at a UK airport and those transferring from international flights at a UK airport are required to be aware of the following:
