Improvements to make airport 'more attractive to operators'

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.

– Edwina Hart, Economy and Transport Minister
