700,000 to use Knock

KNOCK Airport is predicting that 2014 will be its busiest ever year, with passenger numbers expected to exceed 700,000 for the first time.

Last year, the number hit 665,000, the second-highest figure since it opened in 1986.

The airport said the government-sponsored Gathering event in 2013 had provided a "major boost".
