To be absolutely clear, we love flying from Cardiff Airport. Irrespective of any facilities it may or may not have the very fact it is only 30 minutes away from our house makes travelling so much easier.
With Qatar, KLM, Flybe and a number of other airlines offering scheduled routes from Cardiff the outlook was looking good. However, the airline business is harsh and one of our favourite low-cost airline Flybe was struggling in a very competitive market. Earlier this year it was sold to a consortium and there has since been a consolidation of routes.
