To coincide with the new routes the airline has signed a major sponsorship role in the City’s Winter Wonderland attraction.

The Winter Wonderland will include a large open air ice rink, sponsored by the airline and the airport, which will be run by Olympic gold Medallist, and Dancing On Ice Judge, Robin Cousins.

As well as the Flybe, Cardiff Airport sponsored ice rink the Winter Wonderland will include children’s festive rides, traditional German style huts with delicious food & drink and the spectacular 60m tall Star Ride.

Speaking about the sponsorship opportunity, Flybe’s Director of Marketing, Simon Lilley, said: “We are delighted to be the main sponsor of this year’s Winter Wonderland. It reflects Flybe’s commitment to Cardiff as well as our philosophy of supporting the local communities in which we operate. Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland provides the perfect venue to profile our new direct winter ski routes from Wales. They offer travel from people’s doorsteps by their local airline from their local airport, saving valuable time, money and the hassle of having to trek out of the country and endure long hours of winter travel before they even start their holiday.”

Whilst Chief Executive of Cardiff Airport, Jon Horne added: “We are extremely pleased to be partnering with Flybe on the sponsorship of such an integral element of the Christmas celebrations within South Wales. The Winter Wonderland is an iconic event and hugely popular, we hope the new look attraction along with the support from Flybe and the airport will ensure that this is the best winter yet.
