Flights to Dublin from Bristol Airport are set to resume this Sunday 1st August 2021, the flights were previously suspended both by the Covid-19 pandemic and also by the collapse of Stobart Air that operated the route on behalf of Aer Lingus under a franchise model.
The flights will be operated by an Airbus A320 aircraft initially until Aer Lingus gets its new regional airline “Emerald Air” off the ground and subsequent flights will then be operated by this new subsidiary.
The route will operate five days a week, on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, with flights costing from £39.99 each way. Ireland reopened its doors for travellers earlier this month and is the first country in Europe where fully vaccinated British citizens can now visit without the need for any Covid-19 tests.
