Cardiff Airport



In March 2016, the Fourth Assembly Public Accounts Committee undertook and published a Report into the Welsh Government’s acquisition of Cardiff Airport.


The Fifth Senedd Public Accounts Committee considered the Welsh Government’s response to the Report in autumn 2016 and undertook regular evidence sessions with both the Welsh Government and Cardiff Airport.


The predecessor Committee recommended, in its Legacy Report, that its successor Committee prioritises scrutiny of the Welsh Government’s ownership of, and financial support offered to, Cardiff Airport in light of the outbreak of, and recovery from, Covid-19.


The Public Accounts & Public Administration Committee held evidence sessions with Cardiff Airport  and Welsh Government on 3 November 2021 and agreed to maintain regular monitoring.


The Committee will conduct a further evidence session with Cardiff Airport and the Welsh Government in Summer 2022.
