Cardiff Airport expects increase in passenger numbersWritten by Casey
People across the UK might be tightening their belts a little to make ends meet, but recent figures show that Welsh holidaymakers are still craving sunnier shores this summer.
The Canary Islands should expect 11% more Welsh tourists next month, and Malaga is also set to see visitor numbers rise. Bmibaby revealed figures showing that 8% more tourists would be heading to southern Spain, while other resorts like Menorca have witnessed a significant increase in their year-on-year booking numbers. Crawford Rix, managing director of the low-cost airline, said the figures prove that people are still keen to enjoy exotic breaks abroad. “We are seeing a strong demand from passengers for sunshine destinations, with Alicante, Palma and Malaga topping our lists from Cardiff,” he said.
With the influx of Welsh travellers expected to travel through the airport’s doors, demand is sure to be high for parking at Cardiff Airport. It makes more sense than ever to pre-book your space as soon as possible to avoid higher prices later this summer.
