Swiss airline Helvetic scraps Cardiff-Zurich route

Swiss carrier Helvetic is pulling out of Cardiff Airport, two years after the Welsh government spent £500,000 marketing Wales in Switzerland.

Helvetic started flying to Zurich from Cardiff in 2011, but had already dropped winter services after low demand and will not fly this summer.

It comes as a new report says the Welsh government should plan for an airport to replace Cardiff and Bristol.

BBC Wales' business correspondent Nick Servini reports for Wales Today.
