Manx2 Anglesey Cardiff Flights Take Off

Fly to Cardiff with Manx2
The Manx2 airline begins the Cardiff Anglesey flights, taking over the route from previous operator Highland Airways which recently went into administration.
Isle of Man based Manx2 along with TLM Aviation will revive the weekday, twice daily service both ways between Anglesey Airport and Cardiff Wales International.
While this is new temporary service will run for seven months, a more permanent seven year contract will be put out to tender shortly by the Welsh Assembly Government.
The new north south airlink between Valley and Cardiff originally started in May 2007 and the subsidised service has been a success, with around 40,000 passengers having used the service to date.
Manx2 chairman Noel Hayes suggested that the airline will likely tender for the seven year contract once the details emerge.
The airline has already run the Cardiff Anglesey flight service when the previous operator Highland Airways faced some operational challenges.
