Aer Arann is to increase the frequency on its Aer Lingus Regional franchise service between Shannon and Manchester to a twice daily service every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
The increased frequency will enable day return travel to Manchester and vice-versa, eliminating the need for an overnight stay in either region, which is sure to appeal to business passengers using the service.
The new services will begin operating on 31 October.
Commenting on the announcement Aer Arann Corporate Affairs Director Andrew Kelly noted, “Since it first launched in July 2010, the service has proved extremely successful and we are responding to passenger requests to increase the frequency on this route to offer day return services. We are confident this will bring even more new passengers on our flights linking Shannon with Manchester.”
Daily flights to Manchester will also continue to operate every Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday. Aer Arann also operates Aer Lingus Regional services from Shannon to Birmingham, Bristol and Glasgow as part of its franchise agreement with the national carrier.
