All eight Welsh Enterprise Zones ensure easy connections to other parts of the UK, Ireland, mainland Europe and beyond.

Cardiff Airport is itself within its own Enterprise Zone and serves passengers and freight worldwide, while its runway can accommodate all generations of aircraft. Its 40+ direct destinations include other cities throughout the UK and Ireland, mainland Europe and beyond. Frequent flights to the Amsterdam, Dublin and Paris flights will connect you easily and conveniently to the rest of the world from your doorstep.

Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool and Bristol airports are all within an hour’s drive of an Enterprise Zone, while London Heathrow can be reached within two hours of some.

High speed trains link Wales with most UK cities, with just two hours’ journey time from Cardiff to London - 100 minutes in 2019 after rail electrification - and three hours from Wrexham to London.

Our geography lends itself to international trade, with major ports located all along our coasts. These include Milford Haven, the UK’s largest energy port and part of the Haven Waterway Enterprise Zone, and Holyhead, the internationally strategic gateway port with routes to Ireland from the heart of Anglesey Enterprise Zone.
