Following on from high demand, Flybe has confirmed that its service between Cardiff and London City will continue.
The service, which was originally implemented to help commuters during the Severn Tunnel closure, has seen unprecedented demand, mostly with business travellers, and therefore the airline will continue to fly the route.
From the 1st November Flybe will operate twice daily service on Mondays through to Fridays, and once a day at the weekends, with prices starting from £34.99 including taxes and charges.
Speaking about the route, Debra Barber, MD and COO of Cardiff Airport, said, “It has been overwhelming to see just how much this service has been utilised by the Welsh business community in particular since it began just a few weeks ago. Providing a reliable and convenient link between both capitals during the Severn Tunnel closure has been essential in promoting a thriving Welsh economy and it has also been great to see passengers from London using the service to do business in Wales.
“As an airport we were committed to working closely with Flybe from the outset to ensure this service would remain a competitive option. We look forward to welcoming more customers as they continue to support the service, which will operate for as long there is sufficient demand for both business and leisure travel.”
