Terminal services at Anglesey Airport will be taken over by Cardiff Airport next month.
From 1st December, passenger services operations at the RAF Valley site will be run by the busiest airport in Wales after agreeing a new three-year deal.
They will replace Apleona, whose contract to run terminal operations at Anglesey Airport expires at the end of the moth.
Four new aviation jobs will be created with a recruitment drive being launched to attract local employees. Staff already employed by Apleona will be transferred to Cardiff Airport.
Donna Williams, Anglesey Airport manager, said: ”We are a small team here at Anglesey so it will be great to welcome new recruits and join the wider Cardiff Airport team, who will be on hand to share experience and knowledge.”
Since 2007, Anglesey Airport has been providing twice-daily flights to and from the Welsh capital. In 2017, the route was taken over by Eastern Airways following the collapse of CityLink.
Asides its main base near Rhoose in the Vale of Glamorgan, Cardiff Airport is also responsible for operations at Bro Tathan airfield. Its new contract to run terminal operations on Anglesey runs until March 2023.
Ceri Mashlan, Cardiff Airport’s director of operations, said: ”As the national airport for the country and a key strategic asset, we are proud to be expanding our business by using our experience to deliver sustainability in airport operations across Wales.”
”Our focus now turns to growing the workforce and delivering operational excellence, while promoting our shareholder’s aspirations to grow air services and enhance connectivity across Wales.”
