Cardiff Airport, (IATA: CWL) Wales, has launched a draft Masterplan covering its development aims for the next 20 years.
While serving the Welsh capital, the airport’s management team wants to develop it into a key gateway to the UK. The Masterplan includes ideas for a new terminal which uses the latest ‘smart’ technology; building an integrated transport facility including a rail link to important feeder routes and new hotel and car park facilities.
The airport said the development will generate significant economic benefit for Wales and added that the airport must be included in both local and national planning. It also announced that the operation of the local St Athan airfield and business park will be transferred to the Welsh Government and Cardiff Airport. Deb Barber, CEO of Cardiff Airport, commented: “This masterplan has been created to set out milestones up to the year 2040 that enable us to meet our vision for the future and position Cardiff Airport as a key part of the UK’s transport strategy.”
