Flybe add new Dublin route from Doncaster Sheffield AirportAugust 18, 2016
DUBLIN has been added to the Flybe offer from Doncaster Sheffield Airport just months after the airline launched a new partnership with ten new routes.
The new route is now on sale with the first flight taking off on October 30 2016, departing six times a week.
Steve Gill, chief executive of Doncaster Sheffield Airport said: “We are delighted to announce this new route with Flybe, it is a welcome boost to business and leisure travellers alike, who have enjoyed visiting the Irish city and the onward connectivity it offers to America and Canada”
“This further strengthens our relationship with the airline and we are really pleased to see the growth and diversity in the routes offered by Flybe since their launch earlier this year. Dusseldorf, Chambery and now Dublin have been added to the original roster.”
From the Irish airport passengers can travel onwards with long haul services to the US, fast-tracking their journey time to North American destinations as Dublin Airport offers U.S.-bound passengers pre-clearance immigration and customs services. This means there are no border checks upon arrival in the United States as passengers are classed as domestic arrivals.
The Flybe from Doncaster to Dublin flights will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays leaving Doncaster at 6.50am with the Saturday flight leaving Doncaster at 6pm and the Sunday flight at 6.45pm. Prices start from £29.99 and can be booked via www.flybe.com
Flybe’s Chief Revenue Officer, Vincent Hodder added: “We are really pleased that we can offer Yorkshire travellers a continuing service between Doncaster Sheffield and Dublin, one of Ireland’s most vibrant and cultural cities. We have timed flights to maximise convenience. The early weekday flights mean that business travellers can make the most of having a full working day, and there is more opportunity for travellers wanting to travel onwards to the US and Canada.”
Dublin attracts visitors for mid-week and weekend getaways and is great for a family trip away.
