Glasgow – Dublin extra flights

Passengers travelling between Glasgow and Dublin have been given more flexibility with Aer Lingus Regional’s decision to introduce an extra flight on Thursdays, Fridays and Mondays. Franchise partner Stobart Air operates the service.

Aer Lingus Regional has been operating three services seven days a week between the two cities and the development will boost capacity by 12% to meet demand for what officials have described as “a hugely-popular service”.

The announcement is particularly good news for business travellers as the extra flights have been timed to complement onward connections to top North American destinations including New York, Boston and Chicago.

Glasgow Airport business development manager Paul White said: “This additional service guarantees greater choice and flexibility for passengers making onward connections to 13 North American destinations from Dublin.

“Ireland’s capital remains one of our busiest routes, with thousands of passengers making the short trip across the Irish Sea. Likewise, Glasgow continues to be a popular destination for the Irish visitors, so this latest announcement is welcome news.”

Stobart Air managing director Graeme Buchanan added: “This is a popular route from both cities but is particularly beneficial for passengers travelling from Glasgow to the US via Dublin as they can use the Dublin preclearance service.”
