Travel by Air




Ireland's international airports - Dublin, Belfast, Cork, Shannon and Knock - are all served by flights from a growing number of European and long-haul destinations, with some airlines flying directly from selected US and Canadian cities.  All US-based airlines operate connections wihin the US or Europe.  Clients travelling from, or via, Great Britain can avail of even more routes to smaller airports - City of Derry, Donegal, Kerry and Waterford.  Many European airport hubs also provide onward connections to Ireland, including airports in London, Amsterdam, Paris, Madrid and Frankfurt. 

For clients in Australia and New Zealand, both Emirates and Etihad offer one-stop services with direct access to Ireland from Australia, via the Middle East (Emirates also offers a one-stop service from New Zealand).  Both airlines also operate codeshare partnerships with Emirates/Qantas and Etihad with Virgin Australia and a number of other partners, offering a wide choice of one-stop services from Australia (and two-stops from New Zealand).  A large number of airlines offer fares to Dublin as a continuation of their one-stop services to the UK and continental Europe.  "Open-jaw" airfares are also commonly available (i.e. fly into London and out of Dublin and vice versa).  From Auckland, travellers can fly to Dublin via San Francisco or Los Angeles with Air New Zealand and Aer Lingus.

Clients from China can travel from Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Guangzhou & Hong Kong via Europe and the Middle East with a range of airlines including Air France, British Airways, Etihad, Emirates, KLM, Lufthansa, Finnair and KLM.

Clients from India can travel from Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai via Europe and the Middle East with a range of airlines including Air France, British Airways, Emirates, Etihad Airways, Jet Airways, KLM, Lufthansa, Swiss Air, Turkish Airways and Virgin Atlantic.
