EXETER AIRPORT is again to be offered to the market by its owner Devon County Council. Twelve months ago the airport was put up for sale, the top-scoring bidder South West Airports Ltd (SWAL), who also has an interest in Bristol Airport. However a spanner in the works was the Office of Fair Trading who referred the potential airport sale to the UK Competition Commission. The two airports are 65 miles apart. Exeter Airport, the home base for FlyBe enjoyed a 36% rise in passenger numbers in 2005, up from 618,201 to 842,461. Potential bidders under a new package are likely to include CAFCO, a joint venture company who recently purchased Coventry Airport from TUI.
