Emerald Airlines, exclusive operator of Aer Lingus Regional services, will launch the six times weekly service on April 28. Tickets are now on sale for the service, which will operate daily, except Saturday.

Ciarán Smith, head of commercial at Emerald Airlines, said: "Today's announcement is a much anticipated one and will no doubt be warmly welcomed by passengers travelling for both business and travel pleasure purposes.

"With more flights and more choice for the travelling public, we are progressively bolstering our 2023 schedule, with over 2.5 million seats on sale, across 28 routes and 17 destinations in Ireland, UK and Channel Islands."

Rupert Lawrie, commercial director of Bristol Airport, said: "We are delighted with the announcement today and look forward to welcoming Emerald Airlines to Bristol Airport from April this year.

"This partnership further strengthens the air links between the South West of England and Ireland and extends the options available to customers in the region when selecting to fly from their local airport."

The airline already operates flights between Bristol and Dublin, seven days a week.
