Flybe to add Sheffield-Dublin route to schedule in October

Flybe has added a new route to Dublin from Yorkshire’s Doncaster Sheffield Airport that will operate six times a week with effect from October 30th.

The news comes just months after the launch of its new partnership with Flybe that featured an initial ten routes.

It comes as a welcome boost to business and leisure travellers alike who enjoy visiting the Irish city.

Dublin attracts visitors for mid-week and weekend getaways and is great for a family trip away.

Also, from the Irish airport they can travel onwards with long haul services to the US, fast-tracking their journey time to North American destinations as Dublin Airport offers US-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. 

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, 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.”
