Wizz Air has once again postponed the launch of routes from Cardiff Airport until next year.

It was twice postponed and finally due to open later this month.

Now it will open in summer 2022.

"As a result of the ongoing Covid-19 related travel restrictions, it is with regret that we have had to take the difficult but responsible decision to further postpone the opening of our new Cardiff base until summer 2022 to give our customers, employees and business partners certainty during this difficult time," the airline said.

"This has not been an easy decision and we understand the disappointment our customers in South Wales will be feeling."

It  plans to operate Cardiff flights to Alicante, Corfu, Faro, Heraklion, Palma de Mallorca, Larnaca and Tenerife.

"Wizz Air remains committed to long-term growth in the UK.creating hundreds of direct new jobs while also stimulating the tourism and hospitality industries. We apologise for the inconvenience this further delay might have caused to our customers. We remain dedicated and look forward to opening our fourth UK base at Cardiff Airport next summer."
