Two recent airline announcements have seen a wealth of new choices open up to customers who travel to Cardiff across the UK for business.

 

This news comes as a direct response to calls from the local business community to increase the amount of frequent routes that operate to the capital of Wales.

 

Flybe has responded to market demand in South Wales by adding a second daily flight from Belfast City to Cardiff, making it all the more simple and straight forward to get from Northern Ireland by air for a day of meetings. This useful service will complement a wide choice of existing Flybe services that serve business customers all year round, including Dublin, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Berlin Tegel and Paris.

 

Flight schedule from 29th October 2017 – 24th March 2018*:

In addition, Eastern Airways has entered into a new franchise partnership with Flybe, meaning all three routes served by Eastern Airways to Anglesey are now bookable on Flybe.com.


Passengers making bookings for travel on or after 29 October can now book directly via Flybe.com. Those booking for travel on 28 October or before will continue to book at EasternAirways.com.

 

Deb Barber, CEO of Cardiff Airport, commented: “It’s very promising to see our airlines both responding to market demand and working together to offer more choice. Using air travel to travel across the UK is very useful for our business customers especially, whose busy schedules demand effective use of their time.”
