That looks like the end of CWL ops.However they claim they are expanding EMA as is Jet 2.So maybe EMA will be the new LCC airport for Midloands and Yorkshire

CWL ops have been declining for a while. The great mystery of why CWL can't attract a quality no-frills (or more ideally full -service) carrier continues, preferably with a focus outside the UK.

At least they have BE and CDG and RE and DUB/ORK!

Does anyone know how the core EDI and GLA routes are performing for WW?

Don't forget Easyjet are closing their EMA base. A lot of what bmi baby are adding is directly replacing EZY

IIRC CWL-GLA has seen many frequency changes since it started - at one point of course it was operated by Air Wales and went to PIK. CWL-EDI seems far more stable and therefore possibly more successful

The biggest problem for CWL - which is causing WW's slow demise there - is simply U2 at BRS! In terms of full-service carriers KL is very much around with the CityHopper flights to AMS which offer feed onto its long-haul services. For short haul, however, WW at CWL has never been able to match the larger U2 operation which has captured a huge share of the South Wales travel market. Of late WW has, apart from GLA, EDI and BFS, only been able to offer holiday destinations a few times a week and thus find itself competing with the charters which after all have a captive market (package holidaymakers form a large share of CWL's business).

Hopefully WW can turn the corner and improve its fortunes at CWL.


Hop to it, fly for life!

GLA hasn't been operated from CWL for about a year. They tried to relaunch it for this winter, but its been cancelled. Probably due to FlyBe performing quite well.
EDI and BFS vary, but tend to be busy flights.
WW have tried PRG/WAW/Gdanks/GLA/LEI/GNB, with GNB/LEI not even making it to the first flight.
Now they concentrate on MAH/FAO/PMI/AGP/ALC/MJV/BCN
CWL is often talked about as being one of WW's most profitable bases.
They offer flights to Spain where there is high demand and generally go full.
The talk is that they are dropping from 3 to 2 aircraft next summer as well as 2 aircraft this winter.
Its clever consolidation for WW, but not great for CWL. The demand is there. WW can fill their aircraft next year at reasonable yields, and any remaining pax will go to BRS. As both TOM and TCX have reduced their spanish ops in favour of more "midhaul" routes.
