Exeter Airport managing director Jamie Christon said: “Our staff are gearing up for one of the most demanding periods in the holiday calendar and as well as the outbound traffic we will welcome 180 Austrian tourists from Vienna during the weekend.  This is one of a series of flights organised by the tour operator GTA-SKY-WAYS and the airline NIKI.  The inbound tourists’ coach tour of Devon and Cornwall will bring much needed income to the local economy.”
