No discounted landing fees at Newquay for Skybus

It appears from a question asked in the recent full meeting of Cornwall Council (14 Jan) that Newquay Airport is charging Flybe substantially less per passengers handled than it charges  Skybus.  Actual figures could not be disclosed because they were deemed commercially sensitive but the difference in rates is apparently substantial and was negotiated following Flybe's threat to stop the London service.

You can hear the question from Cllr Bob Egerton on the webcast  here (time 00.28:52) followed by Cllr Paynters (Cabinet Member for Partnerships) response (00:29:54).  Cllr Paynter is apparently "OK" with the arrangement.
