Cardiff Airport boss: Flybe route changes 'unfortunate'

Cardiff Airport's chief executive Jon Horne has described airline Flybe's decision to drop its Glasgow and Paris routes from the airport as 'unfortunate'.

We are already in discussion with a number of airlines regarding the opportunity to pick up the Glasgow and Paris routes, which currently handle 46,000 and 29,000 passengers respectively per annum. Our focus is on securing an alternative carrier as soon as possible in order to avoid any break in service.

– Jon Horne, Chief Executive of Cardiff Airport

Mr Horne added that Flybe has just added four new destinations from Cardiff Airport, adding: "We will continue to work closely with Flybe and explore with them other route opportunities from Cardiff as their restructuring process continues."
