Successful inaugural flight to Cardiff!
On Wednesday 30th March 2011, a Helvetic Airways Fokker 100 landed at Cardiff Airport (Wales) for the first time.
During the maiden flight, the passengers were also able to enjoy the new Helvetic Airways viva! Business Class.
The aeroplane with the registration HB-JVI was received by pupils from Creigiau Primary School and airport staff.
We can already recommend two Welsh highlights:
- Whisky lovers should treat themselves to a tasting session at Penderyn Distillery.
- Discover Cardiff Castle as part of an organised tour or let yourself be transported back to the time of knights and dragons during a spectacular show dinner.
The city showed us its best side and we are very happy that we can now offer you this new jewel.
We hope you have a wonderful, action-packed time on your next visit to Wales!
