Katie Moreau, Jamie Kelly Reunited Through 'Love At First Flight' (TWEETS)

'Love At First Flight' Helps Reunite Canadian With Handsome Irishman

Katie Moreau had been travelling through Italy and Spain for two months when a handsome young Irishman caught her eye.

The 27-year-old from Riverport, N.S. was on a Ryanair flight from Barcelona to Dublin last week when she met Jamie Kelly, 24, who offered up an empty seat in his row, CBC News reported.

Moreau talked to the Ballinasloe man during the whole flight, but they became separated at customs when Kelly rushed off to the bathroom, according to Ireland's Breaking News.

The two looked around for each other but did not meet up again. Kelly went to the airline to find her and Moreau held off looking too long, as she didn't want to seem desperate, she told CBC News.

So what did Kelly do? What any star-crossed millennial would: he turned to social media.

His friends started a "#LoveAtFirstFlight" hashtag with the hope of reuniting the pair.

Soon, Moreau's sister caught wind of the campaign.

And it wasn't long before Kelly and Moreau met up again on The Ray D'Arcy Show on Ireland's Today FM.

The pair were set to go on a date Wednesday night, Moreau's sister tweeted. Kelly also promised an update for the radio show on Thursday.

One thing is certain: fate may have helped them meet each other, but social media brought them back together.
