The Official Leinster Supporters Club (OLSC) has learned that the return flight (FR509) from Bristol to Dublin that a number of supporters are booked on after the Cardiff Blues away game on Saturday 10 January 2015, has been bought forward to 5pm…

This flight is no longer suitable as the game is not expected to finish until circa 4.30pm, unfortunately there are no alternative flights to Dublin from either Cardiff or Bristol later that evening.

Affected supporters will, in the coming days receive an email from Ryanair advising of this change.Passengers will be able to either switch to another flight (on the Sunday) or request a full refund. Note you won’t be able to do this until you receive the email.

Supporters still wanting to make the trip may wish to consider one of the following options:

– Change your return flight to Sunday (Ryanair have one departing at 1.50pm). Subject to demand we may still be able to run a special bus service. An alternative way to get to Cardiff is with Greyhound UK who will take you there direct from the airport avoiding the bus to the train station. Alternatively hire a rental car.

– Apply for a full refund and book new return flights with Aer Lingus Regional using Cardiff airport, these are currently priced from EUR 84 return (overnight stay required).

– Apply for a full refund, rebook with Ryanair for the Saturday morning. Book your flight home with Aer Lingus Regional from Cardiff on Sunday (morning or afternoon). If enough people elect to take this option we may be able to run a bus from Bristol airport on Saturday morning (alternatively you could use the Greyhound service noted above).

Hotel accommodation in Cardiff on the Saturday night is from £30 per room at a city centre Travelodge 

Should you change your plans please do let us know if you would be interested in any special bus service, we can be contacted at olsc@leinsterrugby.ie and will endeavor to confirm any services by the middle of November so that if we can’t proceed, you have sufficient time to make alternative arrangements.

Match tickets will be not be an issue for this game, we’ll recommend an area so that we are together in December.
