Senior Pembrokeshire councillors are to lease Haverfordwest airport as part of plans to make the council-run facility, cost-neutral to the authority.

Last year, Pembrokeshire County Council’s Cabinet, members heard the financial position at the council-supported Withybush airport deteriorated, with an out-turn position for 2022/23 of £238,000.

That loss has been reduced to an expected £119,000 for 2023/24 “following an extensive review of the operations of the airport”.
