Pretty sure EDI was double, possibly triple daily some days with WW.

Yeah I’m sure some days there were 3 flights a day to EDI with WW on a 733 plus GLA & CDG too.

Even in the FR days the DUB 732/738 was usually into triple figures .

Interesting article on the Flybe page that mentions CWL-EDI as one of the “potential” routes for Flybe Mk.2.....I wonder if this will happen ?

EI Dublin

EI have CWL listed as a destination on their booking engine. No flights are available to book however. Maybe a future comeback for EI?

Been there since Flybe collapsed I believe. They used to codeshare with Flybe for transatlantic routes. Considering that they are operating Dublin out of 3 of 4 of the SW Britain airports hopefully eventually we might see them return to Cardiff.

Can't see there being any for a long time and it may be a route that never returns.

Aer Lingus will return on the Dublin route on 30th August. Good news to see Dublin back!

Eastern are due to start that so probably not though I do think Aer Lingus would be the better option personally.

Excellent news, 3 a week is better than zero, let’s hope they do build up a network of daily flights again like before. Nothing of course from CWL (yet) on this, that marketing team must be all on furlough.

The route isn't onsale yet so they won't announce anything until then. I'd expect that they'll want to do the return of Aer Lingus justice pr wise.

Since American Trans Air operated the B757 & L1011 to New York or was it when Cambrian Airways introduced the 1-11......I just can’t remember

No point in creating any fanfare at the moment because
A) It's not a new route, its a returning route
B) It's not even on sale yet
C) Too much uncertainty over travel corridors to not only Ireland but the USA as well, so there's little confidence in anyone to start booking flights
D) The route doesn't start for just under 4 months so there's plenty of lead in time for people to book.
