Swansea Airport announced on its social media channels that it will be running passenger flights for the first time since 2004. Services between the Welsh seaside city and Exeter will restart in late March, offering connections to other UK airports, the Channel Islands, Ireland and Spain.
The airport ended its passenger flights to destinations including Amsterdam and Dublin in 2004 due to a drop in traveller numbers. However, there are plans to introduce more routes over the coming year.
A Swansea Airport spokesperson said: ‘This is the first step in a long planned improvement plan for the airport which will see further infrastructure and services returning to the airport over the year.’
