Surf Air, which provides an all-you-can-fly service for a monthly fee, is to commence flights from Dublin next year as it predicts an increased demand for air travel once Britain leaves the European Union.

The airline, which currently operates in a number of European cities including London, Luxembourg, Munich, and Milan, will expand to a number of destinations next year including Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, and Geneva, as well as Dublin.

According to the airline, ticket bookings can be made in 30 seconds, and passengers can arrive at the airport just 15 minutes before their flight is due to take-off.

Currently members from the UK can fly an unlimited number of European routes under 600km for £1,750 (€1,973) per month.

Meanwhile 'prime' members can fly all the airline’s European and US routes from £3,150 (€3,552) per month.

Founded in 2013, the airline has now flown over 7,000 passengers and it refers to itself as "the best connected club in the skies".

The airline does not own or operate any aircraft, instead it arranges travel and other services solely as a “manager” of its membership program and as an agent of its membership.

All flights arranged by Surf Air for its members are performed by independent, third party FAA-licensed and DOT-registered air carriers, according to the airline.
