Cardiff Airport 'should focus on tourism'Cardiff Airport needs to put a greater focus on tourism, one expert has claimed.
First minister Carwyn Jones has told BBC News an investment strategy should be put in place.
Mr Jones observed a delay on a proposed £26 million development project makes the country look bad, while travel deals may not be readily available.
Transport expert Martin Evans - who is a director at the industry consultant Aviation Analysis - continued by saying questions need to be asked about what the travel hub is trying to achieve.
He added once a final decision has been made, the details of this conclusion have to be released "so we know what to expect".
Mr Evans wants to see an improvement in current strategic business connections, while the quality of inbound routes also has to be looked at.
"Cardiff is a very good tourist destination, but people don't fly here," he remarked.
