Dublin adds Vienna and Moscow

New services from Austria’s Laudamotion and Russia’s flag carrier and largest airline Aeroflot have added two more major cities, Vienna and Moscow, to the destination line-up at Dublin Airport.

Laudamotion is operating a year-round, daily service between the Austrian capital and Dublin with an Airbus A320 and has become the Irish airport’s fifth new airline customer this year.

Among those joining welcoming celebrations at Dublin was Laudamotion managing director Andreas Gruber, who hailed the increase in connectivity between the two countries and boost to the carrier’s policy of focusing on city shuttle routes.

Aeroflot is also using the A320 for its new daily, year-round Dublin – Moscow service, which marks a return to the Irish capital for the airline, which previously operated the route from 1987–2003.

Dublin Airport managing director Vincent Harrison said: “We are delighted to welcome Aeroflot back and we will work closely with its management team to promote this new route.

“Some 42,000 passengers travelled between Dublin and Moscow last year on indirect flights so I have no doubt this new direct route will be very popular in both directions, further boosting trade as well as tourism between our countries.”
