Waterford is on Ireland’s picturesque South East Coast and is famous especially for its Waterford Crystal and 200 year-old Cathedral.

The new route reaffirms Flybe’s commitment to developing further the number of services it operates from its Manchester hub. Inbound passengers from Waterford are expected to take advantage of the many connections available not only with Flybe’s own extensive network throughout the UK and regional Europe, but also of the seamless onward connections available through its codeshare and interline partners to a huge range of worldwide destinations, when booked through a travel agent. The many events being held in this year of ‘The Gathering’ in Ireland are already attracting large numbers of tourists and Waterford is one of the cities with a strong programme of cultural events.

One way fares are from £35.99 including taxes and charges and are available for booking at
