Ireland's newest airline, Aer Southeast, will offer flights to three UK cities from Monday, July 24th.

The new company which has registered offices at Waterford Airport is backed by a mix of Irish and Scandinavian investors.

It will fly from Waterford to London Luton, Manchester, and Birmingham.

The service to the UK capital will run six times per week and the other services will fly three times each week. 

Ticket prices to all destinations will start from €79 one-way.

Desmond O'Flynn, CEO, Waterford Airport, commented on the announcement, "I am delighted that Aer Southeast will resume three scheduled air services to the UK, all of which have proved their worth and their vital importance to the South East over many years.

“I am also very pleased to welcome this Scandinavian consortium to Waterford. 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 the UK are operated over the coming months and years," he continued.
