Wizz Alicante delayed four hours yesterday, Palma six, Faro cancelled. Supply chain is weak in Cardiff as well I assume?

The Tenerife arrival in the early hours diverted to Luton and didn't position back to Cardiff until 0915 messing up the schedule.

BHD returns to the CWL schedule, Aer Lingus this time which should hopefully be more successful than what Eastern made of it !!

Paris/Vueling

How long in advance to Vueling tend to release their Paris schedule as its only showing until Oct 2022.

Potentially that means route has either been dropped, is under review or has become seasonal? The only UK services bookable throughout winter are ORY - LGW and ORY - BHX, nothing bookable from end of Oct for EDI, GLA, NCL or CWL so far.

BHX has been increased from 2 to 3 weekly in winter so must be doing well

CWL was also increased from 2 to 3 per week for Summer 2022 season so that suggests it was doing well too, although not as popular as CDG was (but then that was daily).

Correct me if Im wrong going on previous years but Vueling tend to release schedules in stages dont they ?

looking at the departures board online there does not appear to be much in the way of domestic destinations. Is it really only a daily Edinburgh and occasional Belfast ? That's a lots of class "A" controlled airspace for next to no aeroplanes .

As a Welsh taxpayer it is heartbreaking to see how much vital revenue is being sunk into this airport that should be standing on its own feet , or at least almost washing its face in revenue terms.

Completely hamstrung by being owned by the Welsh Government who are against flying and have a crippling green climate agenda. A perfect storm with no possible clear outcome as far as I can see.

What Welsh Govt green policies are impacting the airport?

Might be something do with the global pandemic that occasionally gets talked about?
Throw in the failure of Flybe who operated those domestic routes and you'll get your reason.
Loganair are the right airline for Edinburgh, hopefully they'll increase, and Aer Lingus are the right airline for Belfast. They only started this month so hopefully will grow as well.
Ryanair have increase their DUB offering this month too.
Things are improving, slowly.

Good to see, but is the base being closed? Nothing on sale beyond mid September?

Hope not the case, have read all disappeared from the website but now starting to show again to certain destinations so maybe a glitch with loading the flights.

MXP & OTP are non-based aircraft using the W6 prefix, our based flights use W9..I hope I am right in saying (and hoping) that Wizz stay at CWL.its only been a matter of weeks and loads appear to be healthy.

Milan and Bucharest are the only two destinations currently in the booking engine for W22/3. Both 2pw, Milan W/Su, Bucharest Tu/Su and all flights on away-based aircraft.
The only other destination showing after September 22 is Arrecife, 3pw M/W/F from 27th March 23.

Seems they are going to seasonal summer base. The destinations are all being reloaded.

It will just be MXP & OTP for Winter 2022/2023 season then the base comes back in March 2023 with same destinations as this year.

At lease they are not pulling out completely, more or less similar now to the old Thomas Cook base which is not all doom and gloom and in fairness will give them the opportunity to improve things going forward.

Obviously gutting for the crew but this could be a wise move for them given the current situation worldwide.

it is certainly not just a Wizz issue, look at easyJet, they are getting hammered beyond belief with cancellations and crew shortage.

Wizz are being proactive here for once and hopefully things will improve come 2023 with time to fully cover all flights etc and staff up.
