New figures suggest that more people from Wales used Bristol airport last year than Cardiff airport.
They reveal the scale of the challenge facing the Welsh government as it finalises a deal to buy Cardiff airport from its Spanish owners.
Meanwhile, the new mayor of Bristol George Ferguson believes both Bristol and Cardiff airports are "unsatisfactory" and that they should "join forces".
