Intra-Wales Air Service
We’re currently providing support for an air service between Anglesey and Cardiff. This service is currently operated by Manx2.com and their partner carrier FLM Aviation.
How often can you fly between Anglesey and Cardiff?
Two daily return flights operate on weekdays only, with one return flight in the morning and one return flight in the late afternoon.
How much does it cost?
The maximum single fare is £52. Bookings can be made on www.manx2.com (external link) or by telephoning 0871 200 0440.
The service was established following a public consultation on intra-Wales air services in 2004. The Welsh Assembly Government decided that an air service between Cardiff and Anglesey was essential to support the economic development of north-west Wales and to help secure economic, social and political cohesion in Wales. At the request of the Welsh Assembly Government, the UK Government imposed a Public Service Obligation (PSO) on the route and Highland Airways was appointed to operate the service from May 2007.
What are the benefits of this service?
The service greatly reduces journey times between north-west Wales and Cardiff, helping to improve business connectivity and providing new tourism opportunities. The timetable for the flights has been designed to make day return journeys a practical proposition. The service has proved to be a considerable success, with some 40,000 passengers being carried in the first three years of operation.
Manx2.com and their partner carrier FLM Aviation have been appointed to operate the service on an interim basis. A tender process is currently under way to appoint an operator from January 2011.
