    I live in Ireland and would love to travel to Newfoundland and also buy some tickets for a family member and find that tickets are not as cheap as Chris Avery States. I find that the cheapest I can source a return flight is circa CAD 647 return. Newfoundland is a beautiful location and these flights are so so welcome but tempt us with cheaper flights from Ireland as you know we are living through tough times here where every euro counts.

    wonderful news, I fly to NL every year from Ireland and it would be brilliant to have the direct flight instead of going to London then flying back over Ireland. I would in the queue for a ticket

    I just booked my flights a few minutes ago before I read this article. I'm now left wondering if "pending government approval" will leave me having to pay for those tickets if this offer is "NOT APPROVED" by government? Would anybody happen to know?

    Fantastic news! If you fly WestJet to Dublin and then connect to the rest of Europe on any of the airlines based there, including Ryanair, you'll save at least 50% off what Air Canada charges. Or just stay in Dublin and hang out in Temple Bar!!!!

      Personal exerpeince: Ryanair isn't what it is cracked up to be, if anything happens (whether its you fault or the airlines fault) they will do NOTHING for you. Had this happened when the plane had to divert and we were scrambling trying to get transportation to the destination.
