Loganair route to Edinburgh getting a bit of advertisement thanks to the environmental lobby!
“Countries such as France and have started to restrict internal flights where transport options such as trains are available” he continued.
They've used France as an example but don't mention that the French ban is up to 3 hours by train, Cardiff to Edinburgh takes 7 hours.

it only takes 7 hours though because the lack of some sort of Hs2 link?

Yep and the likelihood of one happening is virtually nil. So i expect it'll still be a route that'll stick around despite environmental campaigners wanting it gone.

So apparently Loganair are starting to release Summer 2022. Nothing onsale for Cardiff yet but hopefully we'll see Edinburgh go to at least a daily flight. Can't see Glasgow coming back though. Though not ever going to happen a flight to Inverness would be great!

We are slowly getting back to where we need to be, Covid permitting Summer 2022 could be a very good season for CWL, without being reliant on one airline for shorter routes,

It has to be hoped so because at the moment CWL is lagging behind the likes of Exeter and Newquay airports in terms of passenger numbers this summer.

CAA stats published today for July show that CWL handled 10,000 passengers in the month, Exeter 13,000 and Newquay 23,000. No doubt much of this is tourism-related, especially with NQY, so it does show how important inbound tourism could be both for CWL and Wales, something mentioned recently in another CWL thread.

Loganair's Edinburgh route saw 1055 passengers use it in December. The airline operated 18 departures in December and averaged 29 passengers per flight. Lets hope that over time they'll add more frequency to the route and grow it back to something like the passenger numbers it once had pre pandemic.

Three Loganair flights from Edinburgh next Friday 11th, in connection with the 6 Nations game, also a Jet2 flight on 10th from Edinburgh, probably the Scottish team.
Between them there are 5 departures over the 3 days of the 10/2, 11/2 and 12/2. Should help give the Edinburgh route a little boost.
