220px-Cardiff_Airport_(Oct_2010)Very pleased to read in today’s Western Mail that passenger numbers are up year on year at Cardiff Airport.  After years of numbers declining this is very positive news as Chief Executive Jon Home acknowledges.

It is common sense to see what is happening, in that if you give passengers more choice of flight destinations they will support the airport. It’s also exciting to think that Vueling may increase its flights from Cardiff as the owner of the airline International Airlines Group Chief Executive Willie Walsh has stated that he wants Vueling to compete with Easyjet and RyanAir.

This news, together with the submission by the Welsh Gateway Group for Cardiff Airport to become a ‘hub’ to Heathrow which is mentioned again in today’s Mail by Martin Evans, gives me hope that the future of Cardiff Airport may be a lot brighter than 12 months ago when the very future of the airport was in doubt.

It is vital for the future of Cardiff and its region to have a fully connected airport on its doorstep.  Let’s hope today’s news is not just a flash in the pan!
