Cardiff Airport growth ‘a concern’ - Bristol chief

BOSSES at Bristol Airport say they ‘will not lose sleep’ over Cardiff Airport’s planned expansion, despite reports it is set to receive investment from the Welsh Government.
Wales’ main international airport could be nationalised after several years of passenger numbers falling, with an increasing number of people using Bristol Airport instead.
The Welsh Government also wants devolved responsibility for setting aviation tax - a move Bristol Airport’s chief executive officer Robert Sinclair says could distort the market.
He said: “We are concerned at the situation in Cardiff, although we aren’t losing sleep over it.
“Nationalisation and devolution could have a substantial impact on other regional airports, including us.”
