Airpost launches Dublin to Nova Scotia route
The scheduled flights, from Dublin to Halifax, will run from the ninth of July until the eleventh of September and offer a new and different destination in North America for Irish travellers. Westjet already provides a direct service to Newfoundland while Aer Lingus flies into Toronto. On the new route, there will be flights every Thursday departing from Dublin and leaving Halifax for Ireland on Fridays. The price range for this summer schedule begins at €659 return, which includes both taxes and baggage.
The new weekly Halifax service will be Airpost's first scheduled service from Dublin, the Irish Independent reports. Europe Airpost is the French subsidiary of the Dublin-based ASL Aviation Group. Last year, transatlantic traffic increased by 14pc at Dublin, as more than 2.1 million people flew to and from North America - a record number for the airport.
