Hi all,

Can anyone tell me if CWL has ever had an LHR passenger service and if so, when it ended?

Just to add, in the long term do any of you regular posters think that a CWL/BRS to LHR service will be viable in the medium to longterm? I guess it'll be interesting to see how FlyBE do with their ABZ & EDI flights to LHR.

We cannot give you any other information at the moment.

I do hope for your sake that this all comes to fruition as you definitely seemed a bit obsessed over the thought of Cobalt flying from Cardiff.

There are alternative airports that you can fly to Cyprus so don't I wouldn't hold back that that trip to Cyprus to see your family if I was you purely based on any emails from the Cobalt Support Team.

If and when Cobalt do decide to fly from Cardiff I hope your the first one to book a flight and make sure you reserve seat 1A.

What is a "flying licence"?

Within EU (where we currently reside) we have open skies, so there is no licence as such for any city pairs. Slots, yes, but I doubt at CWL or LCA - there may be crewing or fleet issues. But licences, surely not.

Cobalt are probably fed up with the continous emails and the person who replied from the 'Customer Support Team' probably just fobbed it of with the ridiculous statement we see.

Not really bullying, more a gentle wigging in my eyes.

Will there be a SFB flight again this year? Remembering the flights back some years ago on a Thursday, they were always full/popular? The Travel City Direct were popular, same as the Monarch. Surely, Disney still entices...? Just wondering....

They have the one flight on the 24/05 for 2 weeks.

I'm surprised that there hasn't been any regular flights to Orlando for many years. They were always popular and I'm sure that the yield couldn't have been that bad.

There's also a Thomas Cook flight showing for 25th March, MT2836 CWL-MCO.

The long haul flights to Orlando were always full with BY, MON & Travel City/XLA. As were the flights to YYZ and also YVR was quite popular too.

Hopefully someone will see the potential soon

Cambrian Airways held a licence for many years, and I believe flew the route briefly several times:

Between June & September 1956, thrice-weekly by Heron, mostly dep CWL evening, dep LHR following am

During 1961/62 flown by DC-3 as one sector on a weekly or twice-weekly combined ORK-CWL-LHR service

Between November 1969 and February 1970, six times weekly by Viscount, dep CWL am, dep LHR evening
