Dublin Airport welcomes today’s announcement by Loganair that it will begin a new service between Dublin and Aberdeen.

The airline will operate its four times weekly service with a 49- seater Embraer 145 regional aircraft from September 5, increasing frequency to a daily service from March 28, 2022.

“Aberdeen is one of Scotland’s most vibrant cities, offering a rich cultural calendar, lively nightlife, scenic coastline, and many spectacular parks and gardens” said Dublin Airport Managing Director, Vincent Harrison.

“We are very pleased to welcome the return of Loganair services to Dublin Airport, and I have no doubt that this new route will be popular in both directions for Irish and British customers. We will work closely with Loganair to promote its new service.”

 Loganair Commercial Director Kay Ryan said she was delighted to see connectivity between Dublin Airport and Aberdeen International Airport.

 “We are truly excited to be operating this important service and pleased to be able to step in and quickly restore the vital link between these two great cities. We also anticipate strong interest from passengers in Aberdeen, and the surrounding areas, who are eager to spend time in Ireland.”

Dublin Airport is Ireland’s main aviation gateway. Pre-pandemic 2019 Dublin Airport welcomed a total of 32.9 million passengers, making it the tenth largest airport in the European Union. It had flights to more than 190 destinations in 42 countries operated by almost 50 airlines.

Last year passenger numbers declined by 78% to almost 7.4 million due to the impact of COVID-19.
