Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has confirmed a boost to its 2019 Summer schedule from Cardiff Airport with the continuation of its three times a day service to Dublin, increasing flights to three in each direction on Fridays with effect from 5th April 2019, resulting in customers having the choice of up to 15 flights a week to the Irish capital.
Not only does the extra flight provide additional capacity on this busy route, it also gives more flexibility to business travellers who are looking for an earlier flight home for the week-end; and also for leisure passengers who may prefer a slightly later departure if heading off for a more leisurely city break.
It will also provide additional opportunities for sports groups and those passengers connecting on to Flybe’s Aer Lingus codeshare services out of Dublin to Boston, Chicago, Hartford, Los Angeles, New York (JFK and Newark Liberty), Orlando, San Francisco, Toronto and Washington – and pre-clear US customs/immigration whilst in transit in Dublin.
