I do wonder if BHX were invited along too?
BHX has submitted written evidence along with Liverpool airport as well to the Welsh Affairs committee over whether APD should be devolved to Wales.

Vueling W19/20

Looks like Vueling are loading their W19/20 flights onto their booking systems; currently no changes on W18/19

AGP twice weekly (Tu and Sa)
ALC thrice weekly (Tu, Th, Sa)

KLM/Thomas Cook additional flights

With the Thomas Cook flights starting a month earlier than previous years next week and the increased flights and sometimes aircraft with KLM over the last few weeks, it would be interesting to know how full these flights have been or are from passenger reports.

Flybe - Dublin

Why is the 7am flight to Dublin cancelled this morning? The flight was cancelled last night, can’t be fog as other flights are departing as normal. I notice another flight to Dublin at 8.15am with a different flight number, the incoming flight is arriving from Southampton, is this related? Thanks.

We won't know the figures until the CAA stats come out. Generally though KLM has been doing well at Cardiff lately with the flights often full, the arrival of Qatar seems to be helping them. With the extra flights I've seen reported LFs as low as 50 passengers and as high as 100. Hopefully the trial will lead to either bigger aircraft or a 4th daily.
Thomas Cook must be happy with April as they are starting in April again in 2020 and of course Ryanair will be daily from next week which is an added boost.
I used the airport on Thursday for a day trip to Berlin using Flybe and KLM and it was nice and busy but not crammed. The whole airport experience was good and quick both departing and arriving.

This morning's flight was cancelled due to a lack of available flightcrew. Unsure about last night's.

Possibly one aircraft short first thing as GLA-CWL last night ended up in BHX due to the fog and it only arrived back in Cardiff 9.35 this morning.

This morning's Dublin was cancelled yesterday, it was nothing to do with fog.

Who knows what CWL have discussed with Ryanair but hopefully itís going to be something good, theyíve increased their flights and destinations.

Another year round destination be good and as someone previously suggested PRG, KRK, ACE, MAD be good !!

Nothing concrete in Deb Barbers statement about route losses, just potential job losses.
She does state the winter routes would be on sale soon but that doesn't specify if CWL is included.
Last time BE did this there was no forewarning to CWL, and judging by staff apparently finding out by Email, it's a pretty poor show from Flybe.
