Swansea airport is located on the Gower Peninsula, Wales and is mainly used to handle light aircraft and private planes. A Wales Air ambulance is also housed here as well as police helicopters on occasion. A flight training school, The Cambrian Flying Club is based at the airport and tours of the Gower Peninsula can be booked by members of the public from the airport.
A sky diving club also runs at the airport, part of the British Parachute Association.
The airport can be reached via the A4118 road, and is a 20 minute journey on local roads from the M4 – but since it does not receive a large number of visitors the road network is adequate for its needs. An attempt at providing passenger flights did take place during the years 2001-2004 but the venture was not successful.
The Welsh Assembly Government is undertaking studies to see whether it could viably be run as a passenger airport but there is great local opposition to the idea.
