Guys, the gates will be crowded at CWL
, because Luxair plans to open up a second hub at CWL
. This is in response to huge demand from the South Wales region for its Tupolev TU
-144 supersonic flights to Kansas City (USA), Maputo (Mozambique), Lukla (Nepal) and St. Barth (French West Indies). The St. Barth service will stop over in Milton Keynes.
Furthermore, to recognise its traditional links to Wales' sheep farmer community, Luxair will equip all its A380 - that ply the CWL
-Penzance feeder route - with grazing areas on the lower deck of its aircraft. This will allow Welsh sheep farmers to bring their own sheep and keep them productive throughout their journeys. Forms to apply for EU subsidies will be available from the cabin crew.
As real estate is getting scarce around CWL
, Luxair is planning to house its new super-terminal in two newly constructed gigantic towers (about 2.5 times higher than the Petronas Towers in KUL
), where planes will be stacked one on top of each other. A high performance elevator systems lifts planes to their parking levels, passengers access their gates by courtesy helicopters. This will allow Luxair to envisage sustained growth in concert with its alliance partners Air Zaire, Bouraq of Indonesia, TWA, and Kamchatka airlines, which together form "Moon Team", the world's biggest airline alliance, which is headquartered at CWL
In a separate move, Lufthansa has announced that they will construct the world's largest IMAX cinema at CWL
, as a response to frequent complaints that its planes do not offer PTVs in economy. Access to the IMAX theatre - which will be built adjacent to Terminal 183 North/Block A/Concourse Romeo/Level 78 and will seat about the entire population of London - will be strictly limited to Economy class passengers.
