Advice from Birmingham on what Cardiff Airport needs to do
Conservatives have set out plans to reimburse taxpayers for the £52m the Welsh government paid for Cardiff Airport.
The Tory document, A Blueprint for Cardiff Airport, envisages growth in passengers and routes, and proposals to sell it back to the private sector.
The Welsh government agreed a deal to buy the troubled airport in March after a slump in passenger numbers.
Meanwhile, a rival airport chief has told BBC Wales that the only way the Welsh public will make a profit on the airport is to sell it back to the private sector.
Paul Kehoe, the chief executive of Birmingham Airport and a former director of Cardiff Airport, said Cardiff could be turned around but only if the Welsh government ran it at arm's length.
