Cardiff Airport: South Wales bus to Bristol rival business worry
14 January 2013 Last updated at 13:20 GMT
Troubled Cardiff Airport is facing the prospect of a direct hourly bus service between south Wales and its nearest rival in Bristol.
Holidaymakers in Swansea, Cardiff and Newport will be able to catch a coach to Bristol Airport, 24 miles (38km) from the Welsh border, from March.
The Welsh capital's airport has seen a steady decline in passenger numbers in the last five years.
Last month the Welsh government said it planned to buy the airport.
