Cardiff rebranding plus Vueling

Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones has announced that Cardiff Airport will be rebranded citing Liverpool’s John Lennon as an example (see also John O’Groats Airport).  Some suggestions have been made but BTN would like to point out that the departed Beatle was world famous.  Bassey International is one name that comes to mind, or perhaps “Jones” with or without Tom.

Now making the most of the departure of bmibaby, the Spanish low cost carrier Vueling has announced a new direct route between the Welsh capital and Malaga, commencing 2 April 2013.
Vueling started operations from Cardiff earlier this year with direct flights to Barcelona, Palma and Alicante, operated by Airbus A320 aircraft for the summer season.

Last week Vueling won four of the eight Budgie Awards, presented by the World Low Cost Airlines Congress.  Besides the main distinction as Best Airline of the Year, the company also picked up the award for the Best Business Traveller Offering, Best Sales & Distribution Strategy and Best Customer Loyalty Scheme. www.vueling.com www.cwlfly.com
