Brief history of Cardiff International Airport
Cardiff International Airports history stems back to the early 1940’s, when it was set up as a wartime satellite base and training facility, given the name RAF Rhoose. The airport was made commercial in 1952 when David Rees-Williams, a solicitor who had served as a Lieutenant-Colonel during the war, stated that there was a ‘great need’ for a commercial airport to be established in the South of Wales; The Welsh Government agreed with Rees-Williams and Aer Lingus were the first airline to set up a route to Dublin, from the newly names “Rhoose Airport”.
The airport swapped ownership in 2013 and is now owned by the Welsh Government, a move that has caused some controversy and passenger numbers had halved in 2015, compared to that of 2007, when a record 2.1 million passengers had passed through the airports gates.
