Update as of 23 January

Following the news on Friday that Linksair would no longer fly and Citywing were to operate the North - South Wales service without interruption to passengers Debra Barber, Managing Director at Cardiff Airport commented: “We were very pleased that,  through the combined efforts of all involved,  a replacement service with Citywing was confirmed by 5pm on Friday.  
 
“By acting so quickly following the announcement by Linksair earlier in the afternoon,  it has meant that there will be no disruption to customers, and passengers due to travel on Monday can continue to do so without concern. 
 
“Our customers using the Airport  are our priority and we will continue to work with the Welsh Government and the service provider to ensure the long-term provision of the intra Wales air link.”
