– Edwina Hart, Economy and Transport Minister
Cardiff Airport have been making progress in growing the number of flights and destinations. This new money will help them further improve the facilities at the airport and make sure the facilities for passengers are to the standards required for the 21st century.
Together with our investment in refurbishment and the new shuttle bus service, this programme of improved facilities and modernisation is part of our vision to create a high-quality airport of which Wales can be proud. The improvements will also make the airport more attractive to airline operators.
Improvements are set to be made at Cardiff Airport after the Welsh government confirmed it would supply it with a £10m loan.
The money will be used for a new security area to accommodate new technology and more passengers, a new taxi booking service in arrivals and improved drop off and pick up areas.
The loan will be repayable over 12 years and further improvements will be introduced after the first phase.
