Cardiff airport belongs to the people of Wales* - lets support it as much as we can
It is surprising the number of people from this area who fly from Bristol. Maybe it is because they can't get the flight they want from Cardiff - or is it a question of access?
There is no doubt about it, the road access to Cardiff airport from the M4 motorway are diabolical. Few people know that there is a railway station at Rhoose - Rhoose is where the airport is located - but does the railway have a service to cater for air travellers?
Isn't it time we improved the infrastructure to make Wales more self contained. Next year will hopefully see the end of Severn Bridge tolls, and perhaps this will mean an increase in road traffic to the airport - so lets think ahead and be prepared.
