Bring back direct flights from Dublin to Sardinia in 2018

This petition had 1,798 supporters

Only a couple of years ago there were regular direct flights from Dublin to Sardinia. The number of them increased during the summer months with 3-4 direct flights per week. Flights were always full with the thousands of Sardinian living in Ireland finding an easy way for frequent trips at home. At the same time, thousands of Irish citizens were discovering a new holiday destination, perfect for a city break or a summer holiday. Irish families, senior citizens and young couples were enjoying the lovely beaches, scenery, and the food and culture of Sardinia and their number grew in double figures every year.

Today, the absence of direct flights from Dublin to Sardinia obliges to embark into an 11/14 hours journey, depending on final destination (Cagliari, Olbia and Alghero airports). Stopovers are anything between 5-7 hours. Definitely too much and surely unsustainable for the many half Irish and half Sardinian families with young kids willing to visit relatives over there. Not to mention the impact on senior citizens.. The other alternative would be to spend an overnight stay in Milan, London or other major cities..

A weekly direct flight from Dublin to Cagliari, Dublin to Olbia or Dublin to Alghero appear to be common sense not only for the comfort of thousands of people living in Ireland but also for basic business purposes.

Therefore, we request to have direct weekly connections Dublin-Cagliari (for the Southern Sardinia) and Dublin-Olbia or Dublin-Alghero (for the Northern Sardinia) starting in early 2018.
