Cityjet is axing its Cardiff airport to Glasgow route only nine months after the route was launched.
The airline currently operates three daily flights between the two cities but will cut the service on October 25. Its Edinburgh and Paris services will continue.
Cityjet said the announcement was “part of part of the process an airline goes through”, while Cardiff airport confirmed the airline remains a “key component of Cityjet’s strategy”.
Cardiff Airport managing director Debra Barber said: “We are continuing to work closely with CityJet who will operate flights to Paris and Edinburgh throughout the winter season, both of which exceeded expectations during the first year of operations.
“Our priority is to return the business to its previous level of success and beyond with ongoing discussions with our existing and potential new airlines about enhancing the number of destinations on offer.
“We want the people of Wales to be proud of their airport and for them, along with visitors to our country, to have a wonderful experience when using it,” said Barber.
Patrick Lukan, chief commercial officer at CityJet, said: “Route changes such as Glasgow to Cardiff are all part of the process an airline goes through and networks are constantly evolving. We will maintain connections between Scotland and Wales via our Edinburgh route.”
Cardiff airport was purchased by the Welsh government for £52 million in March 2013 and has reported a 9 per cent increase in passenger traffic since the takeover.
