CAA Stats March 2020
29,346 passengers used the airport in March down 70.4% on 2019.
Rolling year was 1,579,366 down 0.4% on 2019.
Atms were 439 down 63.9% on 2019.

The effect of losing Flybe and the start of the COVID_19 crisis really shows.

Seems the Qatar Airways service has been removed from sale for the remainder of Summer 2020.

It will recommence on Monday 26 October at 5 x weekly.

Seems the MLA service by Ryanair has been cut for the remainder of S2020 and due to restart on 25 October.

All other FR routes are to recommence July and August....

BUT of course, everything is subject to change!

Obviously this could all change but these are the dates i've found that the individual airlines will start back up at CWL.
Eastern Airways look like they are due to start both Anglesey and Teesside/Aberdeen on the 15th June.
Vueling are down to start all 3 routes on 1st July.
Ryanair are down to start on the 6th July but will only operate 3 out of 4 routes.
KLM will return on the 4th July.
Qatar Airways won't return until 26th October.
It looks like TUI are down to start on the 12th June.

Is TUI still planning on using 3 based aircraft and the Alba Star/freebird?

As far as I know yes with the exception of Freebird Turkish flights.

Unlikely TUI will operate any revenue flights whilst the 14 day return to UK quarantine is in place. One way travel will likely return prior to charter flights whilst the quarantine rules remain.

Return of Flights

So Tui and KLM both booking from 1st Aug. I wonder if they will bring any of these forward?
It would be a good time to get people flying through the airport if they could guarantee some flights.

Pretty sure they won't. At the moment Ryanair is due back on the 4th July I think and Eastern on the 13th. Vueling are due back in August and Qatar at the end of October. Loganair won't be returning.

Does Wales still have the 5 mile rule? If so will put restrictions on a lot of their customer base.

Until Monday there is the 5 mile guidance (which nobody sticks to). If they canít fly from CWL Welsh travellers will just go to BRS/BHX/MAN ! A good chunk of the rural Welsh donít even live within 5 miles of their nearest supermarket/pharmacy so it is pretty non sensical.

You just couldn't make it up from this totally inept government! They are incapable of making a decision to go to the toilet if they had the brown smelly stuff running down their legs!!
No doubt it will all be Westminster's fault when the jobs disappear meanwhile people will ignore the rules and depart to BRS very helpful for CWL.

Someone on the Eastern Airways webpage has referenced both BHD & DUB being possible new Eastern destinations from CWL.

They also refer to the recruitment advertised for CWL (prior to the coronavirus pandemic)

Wishful thinking or a slight possibility??
