VLM has undertaken its inaugural journey between London Luton Airport (LLA) and Waterford, South East Ireland, marking the beginning of its new 12 times weekly service and the reintroduction of a route which LLA says has seen significant demand in advance bookings, exceeding expectations ahead of the summer tourist season.
Arthur White, CEO of VLM Airlines, noted, “Our new Waterford–London Luton service provides the most convenient link between South East Ireland and the London region. With twice-daily services operating Monday to Friday, and a daily service at weekends, we are making Waterford highly accessible for London’s Irish community and leisure travellers drawn to this beautiful part of rural Ireland. Meanwhile, London Luton’s superb onward connections provide invaluable access for Irish businesses to international markets.”
The route to Waterford is one of 14 new destinations from LLA that have already been confirmed for 2015 as part of a £100m expansion, which will also see a redesign of the terminal to increase capacity from 12 million to 18 million passengers per year by 2026 and improved transport links.
