Cardiff gets two Aer Lingus routes

Stobart Air has added two new Aer Lingus Regional routes from Dublin and Belfast to Cardiff.

Belfast to Cardiff route begins on 28 June and starts off with four flights per week whilst Dublin to Cardiff route commences on 30 August and initially operates three times weekly.

Announcing the new destination Andy Jolly, managing director at Stobart Air, echoed the views of the air travel sector: “The aviation industry needs a roadmap and a clear plan for when and how air travel can safely resume in line with vaccination rollout programmes. We are pleased to add new routes from Dublin and Belfast to Cardiff to our network, which are subject to a timeline that provides certainty for airlines, airports and customers, and which will cater for both business and leisure travellers with direct, convenient and cost-effective flights.”

All Stobart Air flights will operate in line with Covid protocols put in place by the UK and Irish governments and health authorities. Stobart Air has implemented enhanced health and safety measures to protect staff, crew and passengers, including aircraft cleaning, mandatory face coverings (with the exception of small children and those who are unable to wear a face mask for medical reasons), and boarding, disembarkation and in-flight procedures to reduce crew and passenger interaction.

Stobart Air and Carlisle Airport were recently sold by owner Esken Ltd to Isle of Man-based Ettyl Ltd. (See BTN 26 April)
