As Cardiff gets a lot sporting events for what is a small but wonderful city! I thought I would create a thread dedicated to sport flights whether they are extra scheduled flights or special charters connected to sport in the area.
I only found out today because I asked on a Cardiff Airport Facebook Groups page a kind of spotters page and SWAG posts them under Champions league news and other events. I got the departure times from the Live flight schedule on the airports website itself as SWAG put them down for when the aircraft roughly arrive at CWL. Guessing info for spotters. The arrival at FCO times I've estimated myself.Given that CWL doesn't seem to produce a Mayfly I'm never sure where to look for the rugby and football club charters. From memory I don't think that SWAG shows them on its arrivals/departures pages
It looks like. They do have a 60 seater 737 800 that they adapted for corporate travel and charter work. So it's either the team or some rich fans as I can't see Ryanair using a normal configuration for a sports charter.Is it really Ryanair doing a charter NWI-CWL-NWI?
Unfortunately no! I have been to Rome but not for the rugby it was part of a tour with a cruise and it's a wonderful city especially the historical side and i would recommend it to anyone. I do want to go for the rugby one day though as i've never been to a Six nations away game and would like to one day.Are you going to Rome this weekend, Jerry?
