Lands End Airport to close for runway hardening
LAND’S End Airport will close for two weeks in March after tenders were awarded for work to harden the runway.
The work is designed to address major issues the airport has had with waterlogging of its grass airstrip.
This has seen flights re-routed via Newquay on numerous occasions in recent months, hitting the airport hard after its recent multi-million pound renovation.
A spokesperson said: “The Isles of Scilly Steamship Company will be closing Land’s End Airport for two weeks in March to allow for hardening of the runway to take place.
