Airfield in Wales


An airfield was first built on the site in the early 1940s and was used as an RAF Spitfire base. After the war, it fell into disuse until re-opening for civil aircraft in 1952 with an Aer Lingus flight to Dublin. It has grown to its present capacity over the years and is now the only airport in Wales offering international scheduled flights, the majority of which are to Spain, Ireland and the Netherlands, as well as seasonal flights to other holiday destinations.
