Deb Barber, CEO of Cardiff Airport, said: “The school summer holiday is always a busy time of year, and this summer is no exception – with even more customers expected than in 2016. This increase is owing to our airlines recognising the demand and offering a wider choice of popular destinations, priced at the right level and operating at convenient times.”
