More flights from Cardiff Airport resume

  (Spanish airline Vueling restarted flights from Cardiff Airport today)

Spanish airline Vueling are the latest to resume flights from Cardiff Airport, as flights to Alicante resumed today.

Customers can fly to Alicante once per week in July, and up to twice a week throughout August.

Last week the list of countries exempt from the UK's 14-day quarantine rules were applied in Wales as well as England.

It means people can return from trips to countries like Spain, France, Italy and Greece without having to self-isolate.

Vueling will also be re-commencing direct services to Malaga from August 1st, with 3 weekly flights every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, and from August 3rd, flights to Palma de Mallorca will restart, with 2 weekly flights every Monday and Thursday.

Spencer Birns, Chief Commercial Officer at Cardiff Airport, said: “Vueling has provided our customers with regular flights to popular Spanish destinations for over 8 years, and it’s fantastic that the airline is re-starting their Cardiff flights following lockdown.

“Celebrating the one million passenger milestone with Vueling last summer was testament to the airline’s success in the region, and we are pleased it continues to serve our customers looking to jet off to some sun, or to visit their friends and family in Spain.

"The larger aircraft that will be used to operate the Palma de Mallorca route shows demand in Wales remains high as customers look to travel internationally once again.”

Cardiff Airport has introduced a number of safety measures across the Airport so that customers can travel safely and with confidence, including enhanced cleaning, more hand sanitizer points, perspex screens, asking customers to wear three-layer, non-medical face coverings, and installing clear signage and guidance throughout the terminal to ensure social distancing.

All Airport teams are fully trained on COVID-19 and are wearing face coverings and appropriate PPE to keep people safe.
