About Blackwood

Flights to Blackwood

Blackwood didn’t used to be considered one of Wales’ top tourist destinations, but in recent years its growing reputation as a commercial hub in the heart of Caerphilly has changed that. Whether you’re heading to Wales on business, or are here to explore the wonderful Welsh landscape, book flights to Blackwood and you will see why this town is booming.

With two airports nearby, booking flights to Blackwood could hardly be more convenient. Make reservations now, and soon you’ll be enjoying rural life in this relaxed suburb of Cardiff and Newport. Hit the nearby golf course, amble along the clear waters of the Sirhowy River and enjoy the culinary delights on offer as you settle into the lush green Welsh countryside.

Airports Close to Blackwood

There are two airports just a short drive from Blackwood. The closest (and the busiest in Wales) is Cardiff International Airport. This is situated in Rhoose, less than 30 miles south of Blackwood by road. Alternatively, Bristol Airport is about 50 miles away by road, on the far side of the Bristol Channel. The two airports serve a wide range of destinations, so booking flights to Blackwood should certainly pose no problem.

Destinations and Airlines Flying to Cardiff and Bristol

If you want to fly to Cardiff, you can do so from a plethora of European destinations and domestic airports throughout the UK and Ireland. Cardiff receives flights from 14 different airlines. Bristol has an even broader selection, serving 18 airlines in total. Between the two of them, you can fly to Blackwood from regional locations such as Aberdeen, Anglesey, Belfast, Cork, Dublin, Edinburgh, Guernsey, Gibraltar, Glasgow (International), Inverness, the Isle of Man, Jersey, Knock, Norwich and Newcastle. The possibilities are endless!

Getting to Blackwood After Your Flight

Blackwood really couldn’t be better located when it comes to onward travel from the airport. Cardiff Airport is about 30 miles away via the A469 or M4 motorway – or about 50 minutes’ drive in good traffic. Bristol is approximately 50 miles away via the M4 and A472, which is a little over an hour’s drive. Blackwood also has a bus station, which connects it to many surrounding areas. Blackwood itself does not have a railway station of its own, so this includes a regular service to stations nearby such as nearby Pengam. Nevertheless, your best bet may be to rent a car in Blackwood, collecting this at the airport when your flight lands.

Relaxing in Blackwood After Your Flight

Relatively close to both Newport and Cardiff, you can make the most of the big cities by day and relax in the evening somewhere a little more low key. It’s quite possible that you’re flying to Blackwood for work, in which case a country walk on the banks of the Sirhowy River is just the ticket if you want to wind down after a long day in the office, or just to relax after your flight to Blackwood arrives.
