Anglesey Airport passenger services to be taken over by Cardiff Airport
Cardiff Airport and the Isle of Anglesey County Council have come to an agreement for Cardiff to take over passenger service operations.
Director of Operations at Cardiff Airport, Ceri Mashlan, said: “We’re delighted to have secured this agreement and to be working with the local County Council and the fantastic team at Anglesey Airport.”
Donna Williams, Airport Manager at Anglesey Airport, agreed with Mashlan’s statement, and said: “This is an exciting new chapter for our airport. We are a small team here at Anglesey so it will be great to welcome new recruits and join the wider Cardiff Airport team, who will be on hand to share experience and knowledge.”
Cardiff Airport was successful in securing the agreement and their management of passenger services operations will begin once the current contract with Apelona comes to an end at the end of November 2019. Cardiff Airport’s agreement will be in effect until March 2023.
Mashlan continued: “On 1 April 2019, we took over the operations at Bro Tathan airfield, and we now announce our next step with Anglesey Airport. As the national airport for the country and a key strategic asset, we are proud to be expanding our business by using our experience to deliver sustainability in airport operations across Wales. Our focus now turns to growing the workforce and delivering operational excellence, while promoting our shareholder’s aspirations to grow air services and enhance connectivity across Wales.”
