“Cluj is Romania’s second largest city and is located in the historical Transylvanian region. I have no doubt this new route will be an attractive location for both business and leisure passengers. We look forward to welcoming the launch of the new route next June.”

Flights will depart from Dublin Airport at 15.30 each Tuesday and Saturday, arriving in Cluj at 17.10.  The return flight leaves Cluj at 17.55 arriving into Dublin Airport at 23.35.

Dublin Airport, which is celebrating its 75th birthday this year, has flights to 167 destinations. Passenger numbers are up 15% so far this year, with almost 19.2 million travelling in the nine months to the end of September. More than 2.5 million extra passengers have been welcomed at Dublin Airport in the first nine months of the year, with strong growth across all major route sectors.
