The service will operate on a 118 seat Embraer 195 and will be Flybe’s first route from Cork Airport.
Aer Arann previously operated this route until its discontinuation several years ago. Its reinstatement by Flybe was welcomed by Cork Airport managing director, Niall MacCarthy; “This Cardiff route will be a significant boost to the local economy and provide a new destination for local businessmen and holidaymakers. At Cork Airport we have all been working extremely hard to provide our passengers with routes that will be beneficial for all.”
“This announcement is an exciting development for Cork Airport and we look forward to working closely with Flybe to develop our relationship and seek out further routes.”
