From 2 May 2016, Aer Lingus Regional has announced it will double the frequency of its flights between Liverpool and Dublin to four departures per day to bring enhanced onward connectivity to Aer Lingus’ North American route network from the latter destination.
“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,” commented Aer Lingus’s chief commercial officer, Keith Butler. “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.
“Connectivity is a key factor in driving new trade links for both US companies looking to do business in Liverpool but also for companies in the Liverpool region looking to do business in North America. Furthermore our low fares make visiting friends and family more affordable and more convenient and this provides a welcome boost for tourism.”
Martin Saxton, CCO of Stobart Air which operates Aer Lingus Regional, added, “We’re delighted to announce increased frequency on this popular route for passengers. Liverpool is a key destination for Irish passengers and with more daily flights we’re providing further choice, value and flexibility for our passengers. Improving and developing regional connections between the UK and Ireland is paramount for us and our passengers and we continue to enhance and develop the Aer Lingus route network.”
