On Monday 1st April it will have been 70 years since Cardiff Airport became the only airport to serve the capital city of Wales and eventually become Wales national airport. In this time Cardiff Airport has connected Wales capital city and Wales as a country with its closest neighbours, seen off many rugby and football fans over the years and connected Wales to more sunnier climates. For me personally Cardiff Airport helped me gain my love of aviation and travel and helped me see my country in a different light and opened my eyes to what the world has to offer.

Trip review: Holiday to Iceland from Manchester with TUI

My holiday didn’t start on the day I flew to Iceland but the day before. I caught the train from Leeds to Manchester Airport via Salford with Northern trains (no direct train available) and stayed in the Ibis budget just outside Terminal 2. This was because my flight to Iceland was at 06.40 and living in Leeds would’ve required a very early start to the day even though I was up about 03.30 on the Sunday. As my hotel was pretty much opposite the terminal I was able to use the bag drop in the afternoon which saved me queuing in the morning, though the actual check in queue in the morning...
