The heliport is privately owned and operated by Cardiff City Heliport Ltd. The heliport cost £3.8 million to build and was the operating base for the South Wales Police helicopter. But the heliport can also handle considerable passenger traffic too, especially during major sporting events at the Millennium Stadium. It can handle over 180 movements in a single day with up to 40 aircraft parked at any one time.
In 2016 the heliport became the base for an additional helicopter from the Wales Air Ambulance fleet, operating specialist hospital transfers with in-flight incubators to transport babies.
Hover Helicopters Ltd, a sister company to Whizzard Helicopters based at Welshpool Airport operate Pleasure Flights, Helicopter Charter and Pilot Training out of Cardiff.
