Aer Lingus Regional’s first flight to Dublin from Aberdeen, operated by Aer Arann, has begun a service which will fly between the two cities every day except Saturday.
Welcoming the departure of the first flight, Sinead Murphy, marketing manager, Aer Arann commented, “We are delighted to introduce our new service from Aberdeen to Dublin. This further improves the direct links between Scotland and Ireland for both business and leisure passengers.
“Working with Aer Lingus, we look forward to welcoming more and more passengers on board from today and to continue to provide our customers with a quality service, ensuring excellent value and frequency”, she added.
Commenting on the launch, Aer Lingus director of communications Declan Kearney remarked, “Aer Lingus welcomes the introduction of the new service from Aberdeen to Dublin. It has enabled us to expand our route network between Scotland to Ireland.“
Passengers from Aberdeen can now benefit from the trans-Atlantic connection through Dublin to Aer Lingus New York flights and onwards throughout the United States. As well as the convenience of flying from their home airport, connecting passengers from Aberdeen will also benefit from the new US Customs and Immigrations clearance facilities in Dublin that will allow them to arrive in the US as domestic passengers.
