Does anyone have any idea on what the “exciting announcement” is that had been posted on Twitter for tomorrow ?

I hope it is another new route/routes or airline. Let’s start the guessing and wishes.....

Thomas Cook year round?
4th Flybe aircraft?
New Flybe routes?
New Ryanair destination or destinations?
Norwegian?
Transatlantic destination?
Jet 2?

It will most probably not even be airline or route related but at least we can dream.....

Best guess Flybe 4th based aircraft. Can't see it being anything to do with Jet2.
I would love it though if Ryanair launched a few new routes though or a base!

Yeah I’m swaying more towards an additional Flybe aircraft for next year and that will tie in with the PMI rumours for Flybe too with possible new destinations in the pipeline - regional France please like BOD or EGC.

Ryanair quite possible with another destination or two - just hope it is something exciting as advertised and nothing naff about planting a tree or something zzzz like that

But would that be classed as “exciting”? Of course it be great if Vueling also expand and add another desitination - MJV used to be popular with BMI baby.

It would be amazing if it was another long haul route....YYZ or NYC too, so many opportunities.

Who knows until this “exciting announcement” is announced tomorrow....if it is route/airline related or not.

It could be in the airport PR world!
NYC would be exciting!

I been told that clue is in the image.

my guess

1. Child wearing Purple, crowns in the background = Flybe returns London City
2. Child Wearing Purple = Generic Flybe announcement
3. Child and load of crowns in the background = Disney Princess - Florida

flybe launching the domestic routes that the welsh gov want? Aren’t they going to be PSO routes? Maybe between Flybe and the T3 J41 they could make them work?

Maybe wishful and hopeful thinking but given today’s date of 11/09 or as the Americans say 9/11 could it be New York ? Or is that bad timing and taste announcement wise “IF” it was....

I’m still banking on the 4th Flybe aircraft and as posted previously it could even be the new PSO destinations eye balled by the Government.

I don't see it being a PSO as i don't see what would qualify.
As for the US a direct flight to New York would give Carwyn Jones a nice bit of PR before he leaves.

Good to see Ryanair adding another destination from CWL and great to see MLA back on the departure boards too.....that was always a popular route when we had Air Malta.

Being a bit greedy but would have been nice to have had more than 1 new route especially as EXT got 3 but it’s all good news indeed.

Lets hope there are more news to come with Flybe and others now

Yeah I'm kind of left underwhelmed. Having Malta back is great but I'm kind of thinking why not more? Fingers crossed for the rumoured 4th based aircraft!

The rumours are of Flybe operating a PMI route, which if is the case then I’d imagine it to be 2-4 times a week peak season and a 4th aircraft would tie in nicely with their schedule and the possibility of some others being added for aircraft maximum use.

cardiff needs all the routes it can get. Sustainable expansion is better than having loads that people don’t use and airlines pull out. The fact that another airline is expanding at CWL is great news.

I think they were just stating that EXT got 3 Ryanair flights and CWL 1, not slating Ryanair at all and it’s all good news regardless for CWL and South Wales as a whole and obviously they’ve done their research as MLA had great loads with Air Malta.

Ryanair have done a clever return to CWL to TFS, FAO and now MLA and let’s hope this new relationship with CWL continues to grow
