Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Emerald Airlines is set to restore the link between Cardiff Airport and Belfast City Airport from July.
The route will operate five times per week on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 7th July.
Emerald Airlines head of commercial Ciaran Smith said: “As we near the peak summer months, the launch of our Cardiff services will provide those travelling to Belfast with more choice when planning their holidays.
“When quick getaways are on the top of everyone’s mind, we are offering convenient timings and low fares, increasing connectivity to and from Northern Ireland.
“We are extremely pleased with the feedback we have received since beginning our operations from Belfast City airport and believe Cardiff is a great new connection that will cater to both business and leisure travellers with direct, convenient and cost-effective flights to the Northern Irish capital.”
Cardiff airport aviation development manager Marc Watkins thanked Emerald Airlines for bringing back the link between the two cities adding: “It’s great that our customers looking to fly between Wales and Northern Ireland no longer have to travel via England.“
