North-South Wales air service

UK regional airline, Linksair, has been awarded the new four-year contract to operate the North-South Wales air service between Cardiff-Wales Airport and Anglesey Airport (RAF Valley), announced by Edwina Hart, Transport Minister for the Welsh Government.

The North-South Wales air service was established in 2007 with Linksair the operator for the past two years using a 19-seater BAe Jetstream 31.

Linksair will continue to operate two daily return flights but at new times to allow for a longer working day at both destinations.

Mrs Hart said: “I am committed to improving business connectivity throughout Wales to promote economic growth.  This service does that and creates more tourism opportunities by greatly reducing journey times between north-west Wales and Cardiff.”

LinksAir is a small long-established regional carrier with a current fleet of three J31s.  Originally based at Humberside it is now established at Doncaster Robin Hood Airport from where it serves Belfast City and the Isle of Man.  www.linksair.com
