    Eastern Airways

    It was also posted that they aren't intended to be used on short hops. For CWL I'm sure it will be a case on how much it will cost. - If CWL lost money on blackbird after the jets were pulled or managed to recouped some of it. - How much money was put back in to keeping Flybe on the domestic...

    Airport Master Plan for next 30 Years - Consultation

    What are peoples thoughts on what BRS can do to overcome the rejection? Obviously surface transport plays a big part; Roads - The A38 often gets backed up through most of the day and only appears to be getting busier. Peak times are usually backed up back towards Barrow Gurney, if not further...

    Route Development

    What's not been mentioned is the capacity that TCX used to supply, 3 aircraft at BRS and 1 at CWL, which in terms of package holiday capacity, hasnt fully been replaced. There are a huge amount of Welsh passengers using BRS, even on routes already available at CWL. What Jet2 will do is bring...

    Cardiff Airport - General Thread

    To put into perspective the seats 1 aircraft would provide for the likes of Jet2 based on the usual holiday airline pattern of 2 return flights a day is about 276k a year. That is also based on 2 return flights a day through the whole year, not taking into account reductions in the winter. So a...

    747s went direct to Florida when Travel City operated the -300 series out of CWL

    Qatar Airways

    A 63% gain assuming it's a year on year comparison? Bearing in mind the route didn't start until May, so it's not a true reflection unless May-Dec 2018 & 2019 is compared. I would think 58% LF is far off requiring a bigger aircraft just yet.

    That would be great if CWL was profitable. Profits would be invested back into the Airport, or even given to the WG to use. If CWL isn't making a profit, which it hasn't for some time, it would surely p*ss off more people with money being ploughed in to it. Although as it currently stands, who...

    Why would they want to do that if the goal is to sell it back to the private sector?

    Flybe

    Thanks Jerry for that list, most useful. When you think about it, what Flybe does is split the UK into smaller regions. If those regions were expanded, but still accessible for people, then there are still alternatives, or potential alternatives. Take CWL and EXT, there are still plenty of...

    Eastern Airways

    My take on it is they are utilising the CWL aircraft for MME-ABZ, with the addition of CWL-ABZ passengers. They are obviously making more money out of ABZ than CWL-NCL, whilst not having an aircraft sat around all day in between VLY runs.

    What a bizarre press release that actually has very little to do with CWL and could even be misleading people in to thinking the routes are from CWL or theres onward connections via MME. Poor show by CWL there.

    Loganair

    Loganair already operate ABZ-NCL 3x daily. So I wouldn't be surprised if Eastern are shying away from that. Hopefully Loganair can make a schedule for NCL-CWL and if prices are lower than what T3 offer then could work quite well with the bigger aircraft. They could even do ABZ-NCL-CWL and vice...

    Cardiff Airport - General Thread

    It was probably from about 2010 onwards where things started going wrong. Little investment was put in to the Airport, things were cut back such as cleaning and maintenance which started to show. It's often been said that CWL that was the duff part of the deal for Abertis as they only wanted to...

    Are there any public stats of when CWL was last profitable? It must be about a decade if passenger figures are anything to go by?

    Ryanair

    Whether people choose to believe it or not, for the majority the main factor in choosing flights is price. CWL is struggling to compete on that level so it's an unknown what effect it would have. However look back at bmibaby. They did very well during the summer seasons with at least daily...
