Have Your Say: Name change is good start
IN the past I have made one or two disparaging remarks about the inadequate and inconvenient facilities which Cardiff Airport offer. This situation will no doubt prevail, until, and unless, the Welsh Assembly Government invest and make massive improvements in all these areas.
Some of the answers to the problems should not be too difficult to achieve — start from scratch and make it a "want to use" airport, easy, convenient and above all accessible in all aspects.
Changing the name (Post, Sept 25) to Dylan Thomas International Airport, Cardiff, will attract more through passengers in both directions. I'm all for it. This should not be too difficult to change, I appreciate its change of name would have to be accepted by the Air Traffic Control Authority, but surely this could be arranged in time to coincide with the Swansea bard's 2014 centenary celebrations already in hand by the centenary group chaired by Spencer Feeney who invites public opinion.
There is no doubt Dylan Thomas International Airport Cardiff has a comfortable ring to it, and just so easily roles off the tongue.
