Flybe to codeshare with Aer Lingus

tFlybe’s promise to offer passengers “one stop to the world” connections has been further strengthened by the airline’s new codeshare with Aer Lingus, adding to the five existing codeshare agreements with Air France, British Airways, Etihad, Finnair and KLM, and 17 interline partners already signed up by Flybe to deliver that promise.tt“Our new codeshare agreement with Aer Lingus is another exciting development for Flybe and we are delighted to be working with such an excellent and well-respected airline,” remarked Paul Simmons, Flybe’s chief commercial officer. “It further demonstrates our commitment to providing seamless connectivity from the regions of the UK, which means passengers do not have to face long road or rail journeys to the UK's south east hub airports.”ttPassengers booking flights through either airline’s website or via travel agents will have one ticket to travel from regional airports such as Exeter, Inverness, Southend and Southampton through Dublin to a range of destinations across North America and Canada. The codeshare deal also extends to those travelling on Flybe franchise partner flights to the Irish Capital – namely those from Donegal with Loganair and from Southend on Flybe's joint operation with Stobart Air.tt“We are delighted to join forces with Flybe as a connecting codeshare partner,” commented Stephen Kavanagh, chief strategy and planning officer at Aer Lingus. “The combination of our services will give both airlines increased network reach and will help Aer Lingus to further develop our transatlantic hub at Dublin to the benefit of customers in the UK and the US.”ttAn added bonus is that Dublin Airport provides US Customs pre-clearance, meaning that travellers arrive in the United States as a 'domestic passenger' and proceed straight through to the arrivals hall at their eventual destination, bypassing lengthy US Customs and Immigration queues.t
