Waterford Airport is to resume scheduled services to three cities in

The services to London Luton, Manchester and Birmingham will be operated by a new airline, Aer Southeast, an Irish aviation start-up with registered offices at Waterford Airport, who have experience in regional aviation and the backing of Irish and Scandinavian investors. The service will use a Saab 340 aircraft that will be based at Waterford Airport.

Bookings can be made for London Luton via the Waterford Airport website, as well as the direct link, from 9am on Tuesday, June 20). Bookings for Manchester and Birmingham on the Aer Southeast website will be available in the coming days and this will be communicated through the Airport’s website and social media accounts.
Ticket prices to all destinations will start from €79 one-way.

Desmond O’Flynn, CEO, Waterford Airport, said: “We have had detailed discussions with a number of parties since the loss of scheduled services in June last year, but we were very impressed with the aviation experience of the consortium and their commitment to this project. We look forward to working closely with SkyTruckers [the company behind Aer Southeast], as once again regular and sustainable air links to key cities in Britain are operated over the coming months and years.”
