Flybe has begun operating its brand new route between Edinburgh and Knock in the west of Ireland.
Flights are operating three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays and will increase to five times a week in July and August with the addition of Fridays and Mondays due to seasonal demand.
The new service not only opens up western Ireland’s spectacular scenery and rich history to Scottish travellers for the first time, but also provides direct access to the renowned Knock Shrine, which more than one and a half million pilgrims visit every year.
“Our brand new route has already been well received by passengers and strong ticket sales indicate ongoing demand for this direct, affordable and convenient service between Edinburgh and the West of Ireland,” remarked Mike Rutter, Flybe’s chief commercial officer. “Flybe remains committed to expanding our regional network and to contributing to the growth of the local business and tourism economies of the destinations we serve. We look forward to carrying many thousands of additional visitors between these two key locations.”
