Aer Lingus Regional, operated by Stobart Air, will operate flights between Dublin and Liverpool with increased frequency and enhanced connectivity to Aer Lingus’ North American route network it was announced today.
From 2 May, flights will increase from two flights per day to four with a new morning flight, conveniently timed to connect with Aer Lingus transatlantic flights, with reduced transfer times and greater choice of connections. Guests can enjoy the benefit of US Customs and Border Protection pre-clearance at Dublin airport, saving time and avoiding queues in the US on arrival.
Aer Lingus Regional operates up to 690 flights per week across 31 routes throughout Ireland, the UK and France.
Customers travelling from Liverpool to the U.S, via Dublin can chose from ten routes including Aer Lingus’ new service to Los Angeles which launches the beginning of May and in addition to new services launching from September to Newark New Jersey and Hartford in Connecticut.
The additional frequency and convenient timings of flights will appeal to both Irish and UK business customers, who require choice and flexibility, and particularly to those wishing to conduct a day’s business in Liverpool or in Dublin.
Aer Lingus Chief Commercial Officer Keith Butler said: “The increased frequency on the Liverpool service will enable us to offer our guests greater choice and more convenient flight timings throughout the working week. Liverpool based guests will enjoy more connecting options at Dublin airport with reduced transfer times. In addition, guests will enjoy greater choice of destinations from Dublin Airport with ten gateways to North America including our new service to Los Angeles, and beyond to over 100 destinations across North America with partner airlines.’
