Great news. Should be very popular as when I flew the Bristol to Faro route there were many Welsh people, including myself, For those who come from further West in Wales it would be so much easier rather than going to Bristol

They must have an amazing route-scheduling team to think about all of these so convenient routes.
I don't know how they do it to select best routes...
It must be interesting though.

It would be an interesting job. Prehaps they send market researchers to airports, but I would highly doubt it.
