New bus service will 'make it easier' to reach airport

The service is funded by the Welsh Government, and developed alongside Cardiff Council and Vale of Glamorgan Council.

The Welsh Government’s vision for the development of Cardiff Airport includes making it easier for passengers to travel to and from the airport using public transport.

This service provides a modern, convenient and comfortable link to the city centre at a competitive price.

It will play an important part in the overall process of improving connectivity to the airport.
