It was revealed yesterday that Eastern Airways, in partnership with Air France, would be launching a new route from Cardiff to Paris.
Commenting, Welsh Conservative Shadow Transport Minister, Natasha Asghar MS said:
“This is fantastic news for Cardiff Airport, a new airline and a new destination.
“This is exactly what the Welsh Conservatives been calling for, diversifying Cardiff Airport so it is not just serving a small crop of package holiday providers.
“Paris is Europe’s second biggest city for both business and leisure travellers, we hope that this new connection is a sign of things to come. Welsh Government must make sure the airport can attract even more essential connections with European economic hubs.”
