6614 passengers flew in January with a load factor of 65%.

By comparison, Birmingham had 188 per flight and a LF of 74%. Not a great difference, though BHX did run daily and CWL only five times a week.

We'll have to see how the route pans out. Luckily for CWL, the load factors haven't been that bad with both summer and the Christmas/ New Year period having quite reasonable loads. This means it's likely to stay as a route until at least the World Cup in 2022.

The route also seems like one ideal for the A321LR which Qatar has coming next year.
