Caerdydd airport has announced today that Ryanair will operate four flights a week between Caerdydd and Dublin-Baile Átha Cliath, once again connecting the capitals of Cymru and Éire.
Flights commence on 31 October, and will operate on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, enabling customers to "easily fly" between both countries.
Caerdydd aiport said: "This is welcome news for customers looking to reconnect with friends and relatives, business travellers, and those wanting to take a break and explore the city and Ireland’s natural beauty".
The Caerdydd-Dublin-Baile Átha Cliath route has been described as "key for travelling sports teams and fans attending rugby, football and other fixtures in both Wales and Ireland."
Dublin-Baile Átha Cliath's Aviva Stadium and Caerdydd’s Principality Stadium are set to host fixtures for the upcoming Autumn Internationals and next year's Six Nations Championship.
Spencer Birns, CEO at Cardiff Airport said: "It's brilliant news that one of Europe's leading low-cost airlines will be operating a regular service to Dublin from Cardiff. Dublin is such an important and in-demand route for business and leisure customers, travelling sports teams and fans, and of course those looking to re-connect with their friends and family."
