This study builds on earlier work undertaken by the Welsh Assembly Government to establish an intra-Wales scheduled air service that would connect Cardiff and North Wales.
On 7 December 2004, Andrew Davies, Minister for Economic Development and Transport for the Welsh Assembly Government (WAG), announced the Assembly's intention to focus the development of a North-South intra-regional air route at RAF Valley as part of an £8 billion programme to deliver an integrated transport system for Wales.
The North West Wales-Eastern Ireland Air Bridge study is supported by the European Unions (EU) European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), which is designed to stimulate social cohesion and economic development in the least prosperous regions of the EU.
By means of ERDF, the EU supports the Interreg IIIA programme which encourages the development cross-border co-operation between European regions.
Supported by Interreg IIIA
INTERREG IIIA is a programme supported by the European Union which is designed to encourage partnerships across borders and in doing so to stimulate regional development. The opportunity for Interreg funding is currently being offered to regions within Wales and Ireland and applications for financial assistance can be made for a wide variety of projects.
