Ryanair pulled out in protest at the airport's temporary closure
Ryanair has resumed flying in and out of Newquay Airport, three months after withdrawing in protest at the airport's temporary closure.
The budget airline withdrew from Newquay after airport owner Cornwall County Council was forced to cancel flights for three weeks.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) had refused to give it a licence on safety grounds after a handover from the RAF.
An independent inquiry into the closure is due to be published in March.
The council had been due to take over flight operations at Newquay from the RAF on 1 December.
But the CAA did not grant it a licence until 20 December because the airport had not met all its safety requirements.
Up to 7,000 travellers were affected by the closure.
Dublin-based Ryanair runs 13 flights from Newquay airport each week to London Stansted, Alicante and Barcelona.
