Cardiff Airport is located in Rhoose, 12 miles west of Cardiff City centre.
The airport began its life in the 1940's when the Air Ministry requisitioned land in the rural Vale of Glamorgan
to set up a wartime satellite aerodrome and training base for RAF Spitfire pilots. During 1952 the commercial potential
of the runway was recognised with Aer Lingus starting up a service to Dublin.
Cardiff airport has contiued to grow steadily as is now one of the UK's most succesful regional airports.
