British Airways will launch a five-times daily London City to Dublin service this winter.
The carrier will use a mix of Embraer 170 and 190 aircraft on the route, which starts on October 26.
It will also increase frequency from London City to Scotland, with two new flights to Glasgow and an extra daily service to Edinburgh. This will bring the total of return flights from LCY to Glasgow to eight and from LCY to Edinburgh to 11.
Including the new London City flights, BA will operate up to 27 daily services between London and Edinburgh and 21 daily flights between London and Glasgow.
Willie Walsh, chief executive of BA parent company IAG, said: "We are delighted to introduce direct flights from Dublin to London City Airport.
"Our customers wanted direct access to the Docklands and London's financial centre and the excellent schedule we are offering means they have plenty of choice whether they are flying for business or pleasure.
"The addition of this new route complements our existing eight times daily Dublin to London Heathrow service and helps further strengthen and develop business and tourism links between Dublin and London."
