Flybe announces Doncaster Sheffield to Dublin route

Flights to Dublin from Doncaster Sheffield airport are being introduced by Flybe this winter.

The regional airline will run six flights a week to the Irish capital from October 30 with fares starting at £29.99 one way.

The new route enables passengers to connect to onward transatlantic flights from Dublin airport where US pre-clearance of immigration and customs is available.

The expansion comes just months after the start of a partnership between the Yorkshire airport and Flybe that included an initial ten routes.

Airport chief executive, Steve Gill, said: “We are delighted to announce this new route with Flybe. It further strengthens our relationship with the airline.

“It’s been heartening 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 schedule.”

Flybe chief revenue officer, Vincent Hodder, added: “We are really pleased that we can offer Yorkshire travellers a continuing service between Doncaster Sheffield and Dublin.

“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.”
