KLM

With KLM using the E190 for the single flight a day. Does anybody know what the numbers have been like? Do we think they might be looking to reintroduce the morning flight even if just with the E175s? It’s always been a really useful hub airline for Cardiff and the missing morning flight means you miss those transatlantic connections in Amsterdam that allowed travellers the option to avoid trekking to Heathrow.

With all the restrictions I can't see it going beyond daily until the beginning of the summer at the least.

As for Qatar Airways we can just hope they do come back but realistically we can't really expect any return to be in 2022.
Some booking platforms showing Qatar back from the end of March 5 a week - just not their own website at the moment. Could be a glitch I suppose

That would be very surprising! A welcome surprise though!

Qatar still has a Cardiff page on their website. However, if you try to book it, it offers the train via Paddington.
I believe it, like Birmingham, were suspended rather than cancelled outright.

Being realistic, if the route is going to return, it will not be until the major markets east of Doha (mainly the subcontinent, Thailand and Australia/NZ) are fully open.

I wish him all the best luck in the world, he will need it, when the owners of the Airport are hell bent on reducing the impact of climate change and see Aviation as a major polluter. It is not a good combination looking short or long term.

I wonder if the new Aer Lingus Regional (Emerald) would pick this up….announced a new BHD base today along with some other U.K. destinations and plans for further destinations to be added. Bit like Stobart Air had planned……who knows but hopefully CWL will be somewhere on that new list.

Ryanair (Lauda Air) showing CWL-VIE on 24/25 March on the FR webpage, obviously for the Wales v Austria Football as just one off’s.

Come on FR give us a new destination on a permanent basis !!

I think the Cardiff airport departures page is not working properly. https://www.cardiff-airport.com/live...on/departures/ seems to suggest there are between 3 and 6 flights per day and many of them are to Dublin, is there an error in the information feed ?
