New contract awarded for Intra Wales Air Service


A new seven month contract for the Intra Wales air service has been awarded to Van Air, a well established operator that already serves a number of UK airports.
Citywing will partner with Van Air to provide the ticketing and marketing of the service and passengers can now book their flights between Anglesey and Cardiff for the next seven months.
Transport Minister Edwina Hart said: “I’m very pleased to announce that Van Air has been successful in winning the tender to provide the Intra Wales Air Service for the next seven months before we award the long term contract. Despite some recent difficulties, the Welsh Government has acted quickly to ensure that there has been no break in service to this important transport link.
“We will work closely with the new operator to promote the air service, which has seen strong growth in passenger numbers in the past year. To further support the service’s long term future, I recently commissioned a study looking at the potential opportunities to expand activities at Anglesey Airport. I am expecting to receive a draft report from this work in the next few months.”
