CAA suspends Swansea Airport licence

Sunday, 19 Feb, 2023 0

Swansea Airport’s licence has been suspended by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

The CAA stopped its refuelling licence and has provisionally suspended the operating licence.

The suspension was due to a ‘systemic failure of safety management.’

Swansea Airport Ltd must file a ‘corrective action plan’ by the end of February.

The airport only recently announced tentative plans to launch commercial passenger flights for the first time in nearly 20 years.

It said flights from Swansea and Exeter would start next month.

Swansea Airport Ltd director Roy Thomas said the CAA action could delay the flight launch.

Airport owner Swansea Council said: “We are in contact with the CAA and tenant, and are considering the situation.”
