Direct flights from Dublin to Ibiza announced from €49 each way
Summer is coming...
British Airways is to launch direct weekly flights from Dublin to Ibiza, the airline has announced.
The new summer-only flights will commence on May 19.
With basic fares from €49 each-way, outbound flights will depart Dublin at 10.25pm on Fridays and return on Sundays at 9am.
The service will operate on modern Embraer 190 jet aircraft, with two abreast seating - so expect ticket prices to rise as they fill up.
Flights will take around three hours, and can be booked on ba.com.
Ibiza is also served from Dublin by Ryanair, which currently flies several times weekly as a summer service. Several tour operators also offer packages.
“Ibiza has long been a popular destination for Irish holidaymakers and this new service will offer greater flexibility and choice for our customers, said Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison.
Jet-setting party peeps will appreciate the option, too.
British Airways currently operates eight return flights a day from Dublin to London Heathrow, and six return flight a day to London City.
Separately, Dublin Airport has announced that it was the fastest-growing major airport in Europe last year, with passenger numbers up 11.5pc to almost 28 million - ahead of both Barcelona’s El Prat and Amsterdam’s Schiphol.
