National airport for Wales to take over passenger services operations at Anglesey Airport

A new agreement between Cardiff Airport and Isle of Anglesey County Council will see Cardiff Airport taking over passenger services operations at Anglesey Airport’s terminal from 1st December 2019.

The North Wales airport opened in 2007, and has since facilitated a popular weekday route between Cardiff and Anglesey.

Cardiff Airport was successful in securing the agreement to provide passenger services operations when the contract with its current provider Apleona comes to an end at the end of this month.

The Cardiff Airport team brings a wealth of experience and knowledge that comes with running an airport, ensuring strategic aviation expertise is on hand as Anglesey Airport continues to realise its full potential.

This new agreement will be in place until March 2023 and will allow the small team of staff currently working at Anglesey Airport, and employed by Apleona, to move over seamlessly to join the Cardiff Airport team. A recruitment drive in the local Anglesey area will generate a further four jobs in aviation roles.

Ceri Mashlan, Director of Operations at Cardiff Airport, said: “We’re delighted to have secured this agreement and to be working with Isle of Anglesey County Council and the fantastic team at Anglesey Airport.

“On April 1st 2019 we took over the operations at Bro Tathan airfield, and today we announce our next step with Anglesey Airport. As the national airport for the country and a key strategic asset, we are proud to be expanding our business by using our experience to deliver sustainability in airport operations across Wales.

“Our focus now turns to growing the workforce and delivering operational excellence, while promoting our shareholder’s aspirations to grow air services and enhance connectivity across Wales.”

Donna Williams, Airport Manager at Anglesey Airport, said: “This is an exciting new chapter for Anglesey Airport.

We are a small team here at Anglesey so it will be great to welcome new recruits and join the wider Cardiff Airport team, who will be on hand to share experience and knowledge.”
