The Welsh Conservatives say they'd give back to every taxpayer in Wales the money which was spent by the Welsh Government on their behalf buying Cardiff Airport plus a share of any profits made. The party will set out a long-term plan to 'double the value' of the airport before re-privatising it.

The Tories say that profits from the sale would then be divided between spending on infrastructure and the planned payout which would amount to £38.50 'invested' in the airport by each taxpayer plus a share of the profits.
