HC Deb 11 February 1998 vol 306 c259W
Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list the commercial airfields in Wales in order of activity; and if he will make a statement. [28612]

Mr. Hain

The following aerodromes in Wales have been licensed by the Civil Aviation Authority for the purposes of instruction in flying and for the public transport of passengers: Cardiff; Welshpool; Swansea; Hawarden; Caernarfon; and Haverfordwest.

I understand that the Civil Aviation Authority does not require or maintain comprehensive records of airport activity in discharging its aerodrome licensing function. The above list represents in descending order the information available to the CAA on the level of activity at each aerodrome.

I am currently engaged in a series of meetings with airport and airline owners and operators to investigate the scope for developing scheduled air services in Wales.
