Alun Cairns welcomes temporary flights during tunnel closure
The Secretary of State for Wales has welcomed temporary flights between Cardiff and London City Airport during the Severn Tunnel closure
Alun Cairns, Secretary of State for Wales, said:
“The flights being offered by FlyBe from Cardiff to London City Aiport are a helpful way of ensuring that the Welsh capital, Canary Wharf and central London stay connected during the temporary closure of the Severn Tunnel.
“Cardiff is growing in significance as a centre for financial services and the need for fast transport connections for business travellers is only going to increase.
“I hope we will see an expanding range of regional air services from London to Cardiff in the longer term. We need to make it as easy as possible for commuters to get here - whether by plane, or the faster travel times promised by the Crossrail upgrade.”
