Europe Airpost, the French subsidiary of Dublin-based ASL Aviation Group, has an existing charter operation at Dublin Airport, but the new weekly Halifax service will be its first scheduled service from Dublin.

The company has been operating at Dublin Airport since 2010 and is the only charter airline that has an aircraft based year-round in Ireland. Europe Airpost’s new route will operate weekly from Paris Charles de Gaulle to Dublin and then continue to Halifax, Novia Scotia, with a B737-700 aircraft.

“We are very pleased to launch a new scheduled route departing from Dublin,” said Jean-François Dominiak, Chief Executive. “This new route meets Europe Airpost’s strategy of diversification into scheduled flights. Five years ago Europe Airpost successfully started a new passenger business in Ireland with its chartered operation and I am confident that our scheduled operation from Dublin will register the same success.”

Vincent Harrison, Managing Director, Dublin Airport, said: “Halifax is Dublin Airport’s fifteenth North American destination and we look forward to working closely with Europe Airpost to promote this new route, which strengthens the growing links between Ireland and Canada. Europe Airpost has been a valued charter customer for Dublin Airport during the past five years and we welcome its decision to operate a new scheduled service from Dublin for the first time.”

The new service will operate weekly from 9th July until 11th September with flights departing Dublin on Thursdays and from Halifax on Fridays.
