UK regional airline, LinksAir, operator of the North-South Wales air-link between Cardiff and Anglesey has today announced a new Daily Weekday Norwich service from Cardiff Airport, commencing in April.

With effect from Monday 20th April, LinksAir will commence the new daily service on weekdays, with competitive air fares from just £59.00 one-way including all taxes and charges.

The Cardiff-Norwich service will depart Cardiff Airport, South Wales at 10:20 AM each morning, arriving at Norwich Airport a little over an hour later at 11:25 AM, saving over 4-hours on existing rail or road journey times.

With a well-timed 2:20 PM return service (1.20 PM on a Friday), this new air-link will allow significant time and cost savings on the current difficult cross-country journey so many have to endure.

Spencer Birns, Aviation and Business Development Director, Cardiff Airport said “It is great to see LinksAir adding new routes from Cardiff and taking advantage of the opportunity to connect Wales even further. Norfolk and the East Anglian region will appeal to both business and leisure customers as well as bring visitors in to Wales.”

Norwich Airport Chief Executive Andrew Bell commented “The introduction of the Cardiff route and the new onward connection to Anglesey is another positive step in the airport’s strategy to deliver regional connectivity to both leisure and business travelers as it will not only benefit those working within the energy sector but other industries and those wishing to travel to visit friends and relatives in Wales.”

This service continues LinksAir’s expansion in Wales adding to their recent Welsh Government award of the 4-Year Anglesey-Cardiff service which operates twice daily in each direction in both the morning and evening.

The new Norwich link will also be bookable from and to Anglesey via Cardiff connecting the Energy Island of Anglesey and North-Wales to the East Anglian region which is one of the UK’s busiest regions in the energy sector, especially with gas and offshore renewable developments.

LinksAir Commercial Manager, Roger Hage, added “We are committed at LinksAir to growing the accessibility to both North and South Wales and the UK regions so are delighted to add this new link to our growing network for Wales. With the combination of affordable fares, flexibility in booking and quality service we expect this route to be popular for business and leisure alike to compliment our new twice-daily weekday Cardiff-Anglesey service alongside our other charter and contract flying commitments as a growing regional airline.”

Councillor Ieuan Williams, Leader of Isle of Anglesey County Council, said, “I warmly welcomed the introduction of the new additional flight option from Anglesey, which extends the Cardiff service, through to Norwich. Both locations play an important part in the energy sector, therefore, having efficient transport links between these areas with a common interest can only be of benefit to Anglesey and Norfolk.”

Flights are available to book from today at www.linksair.com or via 0844 8002411 or via your local travel agent on all GDS systems as Flexflight. A special “launch” fare of £99 return including a free bag each-way is bookable via our reservations line only until February 13th, for travel between 20th April and 31st October 2015.
