Flights to Anglesey resume from Cardiff

Cheap flights to Anglesey from Cardiff Airport took off yesterday morning (May 10th) just over a month since the route was grounded.

Low-cost airline Manx2.com has won a seven month contract to resume services after Highland Airways, the original carrier, went into administration earlier this year.

Ieuan Wyn Jones, Wales’ deputy first minister, told the Daily Post that he is happy to see "the service up and running again".

"It is a very important service from an economic point of view and the assembly government is committed to maintaining this vital service," he explained.

Mr Wyn Jones was among the first passengers on the newly-resumed route and went on to say that the Welsh Assembly government is committed to ensuring it proves a success.

Highland Airways originally launched flights to Anglesey in 2007 and in just under three years the route carried approximately 37,000 passengers.

Elsewhere, Manx2.com will commence cheap flights to Galway from Cork in July, with 14 weekly services operating between the two Irish cities.
