I believe so. If you have a look at Google Streetview it's in the car park just opposite the airport. The 4, X4, 44 and 544 all stop there.

I did the airport a few years back. I got the bus there, but coming back the buses weren't great so I got a taxi from the airport, to Valley railway station a couple of miles away. That's another option you might like to consider.

Can Anglesey bounce back from yet another failed airline with safety concerns, or will the government give up this time?

I could give you a very long explanation as to why there are very few operators of 19 seat aircraft on commercial services but to keep it short, if the Welsh Government go out to tender again, there will be a very short list of applicants.

Because the manufacturers, in the majority of cases, stopped manufacturing them!

Such types as DHC6, BN3, Do228, Do328, SF340, S2000, J31, J41, Shed330, Shed360, Bandit, Brasilia, Metro, Beech 1900 all went out of production.

The DHC8 started off as a 36 seater but became stretched, then stretched, then stretched,the ATR42 (whilst still in production) became the ATR72 and the HS748 was another one that grew in size.

At least they've re-started production of DHC6, Do228 and, perhaps by now, Do328 and god forbid should they ever reproduce the Shed330/360

As for a replacement for an IOM operator all it may take is for someone to order, perhaps, a few Do228/328's, let's say base the company in Wales for some Welsh government handouts, and take it from there, the group trying to reopen Plymouth Airport claim to have such a proposed operator lined up so it can't be that difficult.

Equipment from Anglesey Airport has gone up for sale after the collapse of the air line between Cardiff and the north Wales island. The subsidised Cardiff-Anglesey air route was scrapped last year, and there is no prospect of the terminal at RAF Valley being reopened. Now, the Welsh Government is placing some of the equipment up for sale to land some money for taxpayers. Some of the items of the list include hand held metal detectors and a large arch metal detector like those passengers go through during airport security checks. There are also baggage trollies up for grabs, luggage x-ray screening equipment and those plastic trays you stick your phone, belt and wallet in. There is even explosive trace equipment. The waiting room is also being cleared out with seating racks for up to 24 people on offer. There is also a check-in desk weigh scale

I can the political desire for a link to Cardiff, however from a commercial / tourism point of view, and ATR a few times a week to Luton would have a much greater chance of success ... could even operate a W patter to CWL to help spread the costs ...

A PSO route between Cardiff and Chester-Harwarden or between Cardiff and Liverpool would make more sense to link North and South Wales. Most of the North Wales population is in that area, Denbighshire, Flintshire, etc., plus businesses and industries (including Airbus) as well as easy access on the A55. Compare and contrast with RAF Valley.

Chester to Cardiff by train is 3h 2mins without changes, or 3h 20 mins with changes. Why does there need to be an aircraft doing this journey when rail has higher frequency and likely to involve a much lower public subsidy ?

But Bangor is another 80 mins and Holyhead over two hours from Chester, plus the connection. The populations you speak of are in decent proximity to Manchester and Liverpool Airports for European or global needs. For the purposes of a PSO the choice of Valley is/was defendable.

I don't understand WHY N Wales needs to be connected by air to S Wales - what benefits does it bring?

Oh please don’t mention Bridges to people on The Isle of Anglesey, it’s a bit of a sore subject right now.
