Cardiff Airport Mini Guide

Cardiff Airport is the main airport for the country of Wales  and we recommend car hire in Cardiff Airport for all of your transport needs.  You can choose to collect your Car Rental on airport or via a short shuttle bus ride. That way not only can you tour the Welsh capital with its impressive new Millennium Stadium but you can also get out into the famous Welsh countryside.
The busiest route from Cardiff Airport goes to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport with the airline KLM Cityhopper. Other popular routes (in the order of their popularity) are to Palma de Mallorca in Spain with Thomson Airways, to Edinburgh Airport in Scotland.
Cardiff is an easily accessible airport as it is only a 15 minute drive away from the M4 motorway which goes towards the west of Wales. If you are trying to find the airport from the M4 you can take junction 33 which is signposted to Cardiff West. Alternatively the A4232 road which is signposted to Cardiff central will take you there, though you should turn off towards Culverhouse Cross.
