Ireland’s Dublin Airport will launch UK flag carrier British Airways’ new weekly service to the Spanish island of Ibiza.

Slated to commence next May, the new British Airways service will take off the Dublin Airport every Friday and arrive back on Sundays.

Dublin Airport managing director Vincent Harrison said: “We are delighted British Airways will launch a new service to Ibiza this summer and we look forward to working closely with them to promote this route.

“Ibiza has long been a popular destination for Irish holidaymakers and this new service will offer greater flexibility and choice for our customers.”

Operating throughout the summer, the flight will depart from the airport at 10.25pm local time, while the return flight will be scheduled at 9am local time.

British Airways Customer and Commercial general manager Luke Hayhoe said: “These new summer-only flights will give our customers in Ireland the opportunity to jet off to the sunshine in under three hours direct from Dublin.

"The flights are ideal for travellers looking for flexibility with options from a two-night stay to a longer holiday in Ibiza."

The new service will be operated using the airline’s Embraer 190 jet aircraft that has two abreast seating facility, which means that every customer can have either an aisle seat or a window seat.

The new British Airways service will be one of six new routes added to the Dublin Airport this year.

The airline currently operates eight return flights every day from Dublin to London Heathrow Airport and six return flights a day to London City Airport.
