Okay, so it's probably too late to be thinking about a late summer holiday but what about a nice little before Christmas sort of break?

Yeah, you feel us?

Well, Dublin Airport's newest daily service has been announced and tbh, the prices aren't as high as we thought they'd be, so we might take a trip over.

According to The Irish Times, Russian airline, Aeroflot has announced a new daily flight from Moscow to Dublin which starts in October.

The new flight is hoped to boost trade and tourism between Ireland and Russia and according to Aeroflot's website, flights are going for as little as €127 one-way.


Irish Governments agencies have been lobbying very hard for years to secure a direct flight to Moscow according to the publication.

"The direct link will make it easier for Irish investors to see for themselves that Russia is a place where they are welcomed and can make money, provided they don’t check in any political bias with their luggage,” said Chris Weafer, the founder of Moscow consultancy Macro Advisory.

Paul O’Kane, a Dublin Airport spokesman said in March that Dublin Airport is always in talks with new airline customers about launching new Dublin routes so, we could expect a lot more new announcements before 2018 is out.
