Wales will now have a direct link to Germany as flights between Cardiff Airport and Dusseldorf will begin on May 4, 2013. This new route comes just days after First Minister Carwyn Jones announced plans to expand the Cardiff Airport to bring in more passengers. The flights will operate weekly and will start at £49 one-way. The official announcement has yet to be made, but the airline operating the flights will be Lufthansa.
Seats for the flights have already gone on sale and the majority of these seats will likely be taken up by wealthy German tourists and business people. This will bring a welcome boost to the Welsh economy. In addition to the Germany flights, a new weekly charter service to Palma de Mallorca, Majorca will be launched by Lowcostholidays.com next summer. The Wales Air Forum welcomes the news of the new flights.
